Bruce Nunnally Posted April 16, 2011 Report Share Posted April 16, 2011 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.
