    Well, dealers are taking orders, and apparently the car is in production, but I have yet to see what the final specs on that motor are. HP? Torque? Have the final numbers been released anywhere?

    http://www.cadillac.com/xts-luxury-sedan.html states under the "Performance" tab that it's a 304 HP 3.6L V6 engine. Elsewhere, I've seen the torque listed as 264 lb-ft.

    The performance is very similar to an Acura TL SH-AWD (AWD; 305 HP; 273 lb-ft torque), and an Infiniti M37 (RWD/AWD; 330 HP; 276 lb-ft torque). Still, I would have preferred something closer to the Infiniti M35h (RWD; combined V6/electric 360 HP; equivalent torque). Oh, well.

    The fuel economy is estimated at 17mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway for the AWD model.

    So somewhere it's losing a little power compared to the CTS's 3.6 (rated at 318HP and 275lb ft). Does the XTS have dual exhausts?

    The configuration of the engine in the XTS is near identical to the SRX (rated at 308hp), not the RWD CTS rated at 318.

    It's nearly impossible to have "true" dual exhaust on a transversely mounted engine. It has two tailpipes at the rear, but the exhaust merges at a collector behind the engine, then splits again at the rear muffler. That change in packaging is most likely the cause of the HP difference.

    Thanks Tony, for the clarification. I guess I, like everyone else, is always seeking to squeeze out a bit more power anyway we can.

    Don't forget that the DTS had caps making it appear to have quad exhausts!

    Agreed! I've been driving my sister's Jag this week and the power/performance of that 5L V8 is quickly becoming addictive!!

    Not that my DTS or Escalade is a slow, but....
