The new Cadillac CT6 may be set to debut later this month at the New York International Auto Show, but today, we got some juicy new details about the luxury sedan.
What am I referring to?
Well, it turns out that Cadillac is really amping up the power in these bad boys by incorporating a new generation of V6 engines, including a new Twin Turbo V6 that will be one of the most advanced six-cylinder gasoline engines in the entire industry!
In an official press release, General Motors says, “[The new powertrain setup] leverages the latest technology to balance efficiency, performance and refinement in the upcoming, top-of-the-range CT6 luxury performance sedan.”
Adding to the prestige of this new setup is the fact that the new 3.0L Twin Turbo is the only six-cylinder engine to combine turbocharging with cylinder deactivation and stop/start technologies. All of this helps the ride be as efficient as possible.
Amazingly, the fuel efficiency of this setup doesn’t hinder the power at all. In fact, reports indicate that the peak output for this engine will be at 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Pretty beastly for a Cadillac, right?
Assistant chief engineer, Rich Bartlett, says, “Cadillac’s elevation on the world stage is driven in great part by its advanced powertrain technology and the all-new 3.0L Twin Turbo powers past the traditional segment leaders with higher degrees of the performance and refinement their reputations were built on.”
“With nearly zero turbo lag and a commensurately low-inertia rotating assembly, this engine climbs the rpm ladder and produces power on demand. Its performance is more than just the maximum output – it’s how it is delivered and the new 3.0L Twin Turbo delivers it with smoothness and precision.”
