The North American based automaker Cadillac is now offering a brand new engine for the ATS and CTS.
If you happen to be on the lookout for a brand new 2016 Cadillac ATS or the 2016 CTS, than you will be glad to find out that the car manufacturer is now offering the above mentioned models with a brand new engine. According to the company, both models are getting the 3.6 liter V6 unit under their hoods, which is now capable of producing a total of 335 HP (250 kW), becoming approximately 9 percent more fuel efficient than its predecessor.
“Cadillac’s all-new six-cylinder engine contains Active Fuel Management, or cylinder deactivation, technology enabling it to seamlessly switch from six-cylinder to four-cylinder operation under certain light-load conditions, while maintaining excellent performance. The new 3.6-liter engine is part of the 2016 ATS, CTS and Escalade product lines. The luxury SUV’s V8 will shift to four-cylinder operation in many daily driving conditions, as will Cadillac’s all-new high performance CTS-V sedan”, says the automaker in its press release.
The 3.6 liter six-cylinder unit will be working together with an optional eight-speed automatic transmission and, besides this, customers will also be able to order the upgraded 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit, equipped with start/stop, which is actually the most preferred choice. Unfortunately Cadillac hasn’t announced any pricing details or availability dates for the ATS and CTS equipped with the V6 engine so chances are we will be hearing about it in the near future.
