De Nysschen dropped the news during a Q&A session with Jalopnik earlier this week. Cadillac’s leading man didn’t give any more details on the new engine program, but promised more information in the coming days.
“We have an entirely new family of V6 engines coming soon, premiering in CT6,” said de Nysschen. “We will release technical details of this next month.”
Although we’ll have to wait on official specs, it’s believed that the CT6′s new bent-six will displace 3.0L and make use of twin-turbochargers. Power figures remain unknown, but the V6 should easily clear 300 horsepower.
Following its debut in the CT6, the new V6 is expected to spread to other Cadillac models, replacing the brand’s current 3.6L V6.
In addition to the new engine program, de Nysschen also revealed that Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system will get an overhaul for the 2016 model year, with an all-new version set to launch in a few years.
