GM Reveals New 3.0L Twin Turbo LGW V6, 3.6L LGX V6 Engines. Likely 2016 Camaro Bound.

Cadillac today announced a new generation of V-6 engines, led by an exclusive Twin Turbo V-6 that will be one of the industry’s most advanced six-cylinder gasoline engines. It leverages the latest technology to balance efficiency, performance and refinement in the upcoming, top-of-the-range CT6 luxury performance sedan.

Peak output of the Twin Turbo LGW 3.0L V6 is estimated at 400 horsepower (298 kW) and 400 lb-ft of torque (543 Nm), making it one of the most power-dense V-6 DOHC engines in the world, developing 133 horsepower (99 kW) per liter.

The LGX V6 develops 335 horsepower (250 kW) and 284 lb-ft of torque (385 Nm).

While this was a release about the Cadillac, it takes little imagination to imagine one (or both) of these new V6 engines in the upcoming 2016 Camaro. Also promising are the mentions of the new 8 speed automatic transmissions (Hydra-matic 8L90 and 8L45) which will be paired to these engines.
