ABR Staff Writer Published 25 June 2013

Cadillac, a luxury automobile and SUV division of US automaker General Motors, is planning to introduce the new optional Twin Turbo 3.6L V6 engine for its 2014 XTS Vsport sedan.

The new six-cylinder engine, which also powers the upcoming 2014 CTS luxury sedan, will generate an output of 410hp and 369lb-ft of torque.

Claimed to deliver 105lb-ft more torque than the standard V-6 from 1900 to 5600rpm, the new Twin Turbo is an upgrade to the 3.6L dual overhead cam V6 engine that already powers the XTS sedan in the US market.
