Cadillac Changes for 2012


Recommended Posts

News:

CTS 3.6 gets the LFX Engine, 3.6L Variable Valve Timing V6 DI Direct Injection (318 hp [237.1 kW) @ 6800 rpm, 275 lb-ft of torque [371.3 N-m] @ 4900 rpm)

CTS 3.0 has changed from LF1 Engine, 3.0L V6 SIDI DOHC VVT (270 hp [201 kW] @ 7000 rpm, 223 lb-ft of torque [302 N-m] @ 5700 rpm) to LFW engine, specs TBD

Update: The LFW 3L V6 appears to be the flexfuel variant of the 270 hp LF1 V6. The LFW makes 264 hp in most applications (264 hp [196.8 kW] @ 6950 rpm, 222 lb-ft [299.7 N-m] @ 5100 rpm) but TBD in the Cadillac line.

Rainsense Wipers added to lux packages (automatically turn on when it rains)

DTS discontinued

SRX gets LFX 3.6L Engine, 300 hp standard

My understanding is that the LFX engine is a re-engineering of the LLT 3.6L that made 304 hp with the stuff learned from doing the 3L engine.

This engine makes 300 hp in the SRX, 318 hp in the CTS, and 323 hp in the Camaro. One might conclude that with a performance exhaust it can make 323 hp in the CTS.

Sales for the DTS have been poor. The alternative is the XTS that is on the way (name not final).

I am curious if GM ever planned a 4 cyl Northstar. - or at least a 4 cyl all aluminum engine. Of course it will have to have all the horses of todays 8cyl. I wouldn't think that WOTS will be necessary to blow out carbon on this four cylinder!! - oooh and It'll have to have a tranmission called a 4T40E

That 4 cylinder would have to be turbocharged and screaming at 6,000 to 7,000 RPM to make 300 ponies. Not Cadillac's style (at least in North America).

What moves the car is torque and torque = cubic inches.

I think we'll see a Turbo 4 in the 2013 ATS.

Among current GM engines, the Ecotec LNF 2L Turbo makes 260 hp at 5300 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque from 2000-5000 rpm.

A dealer aftermarket calibration was also offered that turned it up to 290 hp.
