Under the hood, customers can choose between the standard 3.6-liter V-6, good for 304 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque, or the a 3.6-liter V-6 twin-turbo engine on the V-Sport model, offering up to 410 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are connected to six-speed automatic transmissions. While the engines remain the same,¬†Cadillac has updated the XTS chassis for an improved ride and less exterior noise. Stay tuned for pricing, which should become available before the car launches in the fall.
