The North American based automotive giant, General Motors, has recently released new details on the 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which is found under the hood of the 2014 Cadillac CTS VSport and the 2014 XTS VSport.
The brand new 3.6 liter twin-turbo unit is Cadillac’s first twin-turbo engine and so the company’s engineers have focused on making it powerful and refined, tackling the turbo lag and patenting a new air flow design.
“By creating a very short path from the turbos to the throttle body, the compressors are able to draw air directly from the inlet box and send pressurized air through the intercooler immediately. This gives the driver a more immediate feeling of power on demand”, said the Cadillac assistant chief engineer for the 3.6L engine, Richard Bartlett.
The brand new 3.6 liter twin turbo V6 engine is producing a total output of 410 HP (305 kW) and 500 Nm of torque (369 lb-ft) in the 2014 XTS VSport, while in the 2014 CTS VSport, the total output stands at 420 HP (313 kW) and 583 Nm of torque (430 lb-ft). Prices for the 2014 Cadillac XTS VSport have been set at 63,020 USD, while the 2014 Cadillac XTS VSport will set you back for 59,995 USD.
