2014 Cadillac CTS To Get 420-HP Twin-Turbo V-6 Engine

That's all we have to work with so far, but it's not just a rumor--the tidbit was released by Brian Corbett of Cadillac communications this morning on Twitter. The engine isn't for the next-gen CTS-V, either--this is for a "normal" CTS.

Perhaps even more enticing than a brawny (and likely slightly larger) mainstream CTS luxury sedan is the likelihood that a variant of this engine is the powerplant for the upcoming ATS-V--though some reports insist the ATS-V will sport a V-8. We'd be happier with this solution.

In ATS-V guise, the engine could output 450 horsepower or more--a small gain for a forced-induction engine over the CTS' stock rating. Packaged in the nimble and capable ATS chassis, paired with a manual transmission, with V-grade suspension, aero, and interior upgrades, the ATS-V could well be our next attainable lust object.

There's also a strong likelihood that the twin-turbo V-6 could find its way into other Cadillac vehicles, including the full-size XTS sedan.

Look for the 2014 Cadillac CTS' debut at the New York Auto Show next week.
