Cadillac Energizes 2014 VSport XTS with Twin-Turbo Boost
Cadillac's new turbocharged 6-cylinder engine packs 410 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft of torque in 6 cylinders and the automaker says it delivers 105 lb.-ft. more torque than the standard V-6. The new twin-turbo will only be offered in the Premium and Platinum trim levels. Other features of the new XTS VSport engine include:
- All-new cylinder block
- Stronger connecting rods
- Machined, domed aluminum pistons for greater strength
- Integrated charge air cooler system with low-volume air ducts
- Two turbochargers that produce more than 12 lbs. of boost
- All-new direct fuel-injection system
The new turbocharged engine also will be offered as an optional powertrain in the all-new 2014 CTS compact premium performance sedan.
Introduced last year, the 2014 XTS is Cadillac's largest sedan, with a starting MSRP of $45,525, including destination fee--the same price as last year's model. It's available with front- or all-wheel drive.
Through the first five months of 2013, XTS sales totaled 12,450. The XTS, which was launched a year ago in June, posted 2012 calendar-year sales of 15,049 units, based on J.D. Power research.
