    Blown: GM Working On Two Twin-Turbo V6's

    GM appears to be going from 0-60 with blown V6's.

    Nearly two years ago GMI broke news that General Motors is working on a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 to get GM on part with the industry trend of utilizing blown V-6's. Until recently it has been assumed that GM has only one twin-turbo V-6 in the works, which makes a lot of sense considering the company is about to launch the fifth generation of its coveted Small Block V-8 lineup. Instead, GMI has learned that GM currently has two twin-turbo V-6's in development.

    The saying goes, "there's no replacement for displacement" and apparently GM feels the same with regards to their V-6 engines. Sources have confirmed to GMI that GM is also working on a twin-turbo version of its 3.6-liter V-6. This engine will supplement the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 that GMI previously confirmed.

    Back in 2009 GM and Jay Leno showcased a Chevrolet Camaro concept at the SEMA show that housed a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6. In that application GM claimed the engine generated 425 horsepower. GMI has not been able to confirm power figures for the production version of the twin-turbo 3.6-liter, but in excess of 400 seems like a plausible estimate considering the company is still developing a 3.0-liter variant of the blown engine as well.

    As previously reported, expect the 3.0-liter twin-turbo to show up first in Cadillac models, including the XTS and CTS. Both sedans will eventually have the engine as an option, with it being mated to an eight-speed automatic. The engine is expected to trickle down through the GM lineup over time, similar to GM's typical new engine roll-out.

    The 3.6-liter twin-turbo is expected to first show up at Cadillac as well. Earlier this week reports surfaced that Cadillac has decided to go with a twin-turbo V-6 for the upcoming ATS-V performance car. According to sources, that twin-turbo V-6 will not be the 3.0-liter, but rather the first application of the twin-turbo 3.6-liter, suggesting that the larger displacement could be reserved for performance applications. Perhaps the 3.6-liter could even end up being a Cadillac exclusive engine? At this time no other applications of the twin-turbo 3.6-liter are known.

    Stay tuned right here for the latest on GM's upcoming twin-turbo engines!

    I never thought I would say this to another dude besides my dad... but Nsap.. I Luv Ya Boo.

    Predictions for the 3.0L Turbo are what.. 380-390HP.. and 3.6L 425-440???

    Cadillac, again... a 425-440HP XTS Platinum will get my business unless the next gen CTS-V is pushing 600HP.

    I'm guessing the ATS-V will get the 3.6L TT or the GEN V V8.
    SRX-V 390HP 3.0L TT

    So if this rumors are true there won't be ATS-V with V8 LT1 engine in it? Competition for that car already has over 420 hp (M3, C-amg have over 450 hp) so i hope they are planing for more than 420 hp.

    OMG... if the ATS-V gets the 3.6TT, I'd drop my pants at the dealership in the process of negotiating for it!

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    Damn, a twin-turbo LFX? Ecoboost can suck it, if that is true...that's news to me. I still want to see a turbo 2.5 though.

    I could easily see the 3.6L pulling that off. And truthfully considering the Alpha's weight advantage.. It might just only need to match the M3's output.

    A 3.6TT AWD Buick Enclave would be one sweet vehicle.

    IF that TT V6 can hit north of 400HP in stock form, and can be had with a 6 or 7 speed manual/Tap-Shift 8 speed automatic, I'm not completely mad at that. As long as the CTS-V keeps a V8 into the next generation.

    I wish they would take that Turbo 3.6L up to 4.0L's! That way Cadillac could have 2.0L-3.0L and 4.0L DI Turbo engines! Then do a HFV8 with DI Turbo of 5.0L's for the upcoming Premium RWD Cadillac model!

    The SBC is becoming more irrelevant; it now has to get by as a compromised value proposition or as a nod to heritage.
