What can we expect of a Cadillac XTS AWD Twin-Turbo?

Posted on May 15, 2013by bwnunnally

Motor Trend measured performance for the Cadillac XTS AWD 3.6L normally aspirated model at 6.9 sec for 0-60 mph, and the quarter mile in 15.2 seconds. What can we expect from the upcoming 410 hp / 359 lb-ft of torque twin-turbo 3.6L V6?

The new Cadillac Twin-Turbo 3.6L V-6 is available in the XTS, delivering SAE-certified 410 horsepower (306 kW) and 369 lb.-ft. of torque (500 Nm), making it one of the most power-dense six-cylinder engines in the segment. A pair of smaller turbochargers and an efficient charge air cooler help provide more immediate power delivery, while peak torque is sustained over a broad range – 1,900 to 5,600 rpm – for a confident feeling of power in almost all driving conditions, such as accelerating or overtaking traffic on the highway.

One thumb rule is for every 10 hp added, 0-60 mph goes down by 0.2 sec. Another rule is for every 100 lbs added, 0-60 goes up by 0.1 sec.


The XTS TTV6 is likely to add around 200 lbs, so we’ll keep up with that +0.2 sec change.
