    If you are talking about the 2.8 turbo in the SRX, it makes barely more torque than the 3.6 DI. And less power. So it's not being anymore stressed, really, than the naturally aspirated 3.6.

    I wasn't talking about something that's in production. Rather rumors and things I hear about something in development.

    Afterall the point of this thread is to talk about the upcoming 3.0TT V6. I mean we all know it's coming so why lie about it.

    So, let me get this straight. You are condemning an engine that hasn't even made it to production yet (even though it's relatives, in production for years, have provided good results), based on rumors, right?

    When all is said and done this TT V6 isn't working out as planned. We'll probably be lucky to see it at the end of 2013. Something is wrong.

    Just thinking out loud here, and I know this engine wouldn't be exclusive to Cadillac....

    Do you suppose that GM is actually listening to all the online chatter, as well as actually talking to loyal customers, and realized that they're going to have to offer a V8 in the larger Cadillacs??

    Well the rumors I hear aren't really rumors as you are thinking about them, but you are free to think what you want.

    Of course, you would continue to be wrong. So whatever man, you think what you want and be happy.

    Re: Twin Turbo 3.0 Likely Coming To Cadillac XTS

    This isn't about right or wrong, at least for me. I'm not commending nor condemning the engine, yet. I'm simply just trying to understand, as I've yet to hear of any actual details for or against. Apparently, all anyone has heard thus far is "rumors", which in any definition, is far from supportive fact. I've kind of been hoping you or someone else could open some doors, but discussion about this engine has provided nothing but very vague speculation, it seems.

    Therefore, unless someone can shed some light on the subject, I suppose the next logical step is to base estimates on the current related engine in production, which is a fine piece of machinery as it pertains to this particular discussion.

    One thing I can say for CERTAIN is that General Motors is closely monitoring the discussions here and around the web.

    I am quite content to wait and see what hits the market, and make my decision then.

    If Cadillac were actually listening to us, the auto brake release, power trunk-pull down, gas cap release, and rainsensor (just to name a few deleted features) would've reappeared as fast as they disappeared.

    Cadillac watches these forums. Make no mistake. Look at the improvements from the 1st gen to 2nd gen CTS and CTS-V.

    Re: Twin Turbo 3.0 Likely Coming To Cadillac XTS

    In case anyone is unsure, I was invited to Detroit, Michigan to MEET Cadillac executives BECAUSE of this forum. That, and there are General Motors service representatives onboard doing what they can (or are allowed) to assist members with ownership issues. There are several Cadillac executives monitoring activity in this community...
