    Re: XTS Engine

    On that topic, has anyone heard more on development of a twin turbo, and if any decisions have been made for its use on future year XTSs?

    I think it's still just the normal rumor mill, nothing official or even 'good insider info'

    It looks like the 2014 CTS was spied with what seems to be a TTV6. Running on the Nurburgring.

    If the TTV6 is far enough along, I don't see why Cadillac wouldn't offer it. While I think the V6 does a good job currently on the XTS, a TT would open up options and make money for Cadillac...

    I am just speculating like everyone else here but I think The XTS will stay pat in terms of engines on the exception of a Hybrid option. I do not think we will see a TT on the XTS that will be reserved for the new 2014 CTS and the new flagship as a base engine. The only new engine will be when the XTS is replaced or moved over to the Omega platform.

    Re: XTS Engine

    Yea, I wasn't aware the XTS was getting anything other than the 3.6 V6...

    At the Auto Show in Kansas City, the Cadillac rep who was touring with the displayed XTS told me they had been notified earlier that week that Cadillac was going to offer a TwinTurbo model, although they had no date information. Of course, there's no telling whether Cadillac execs have changed plans, but, for now, I'm holding off ordering, in hopes that information was correct.

    At NAIAS one of the Cadillac reps there said they were hoping to offer a turbo V6, but there was no confirmation of it. I bet they will.

    I've heard some dealers are doing a software upgrade that adds 40hp and 40ft pounds. Around $1500. Not detectable and no effect on the warranty.

    I would want to see an independent dyno test documenting this. The $ amount and hp increase, but not the one for one torque increase indicated, is similar to what Volvo offers for its cars- called Polestar.

    My terrific dealer keeps me informed and plans to order my Vsport as soon as they have order sheets.

    Glad I trusted the Cadillac guy at the Auto Show, ... and I'm particularly glad I waited.

    Talking Re: XTS Engine.

    Wow, a Turbo XTS. I can just see it. Driving south along the interstate outside Tampa. In the rear-view mirror I see a car zooming up behind me. Yes, it's a Turbo XTS with no driver. Wait, yes, there she is! Peering over the dash between the steering wheel is a Purple Haired lil ole lady out for Sunday drive to Sarasota for bingo. .
