GMI Exclusive: GM Twin-Turbo V6 Coming

GMI Exclusive: GM Twin-Turbo V6 Coming

GMI uncovers GM's first high tech, blown V6.

Ford Motor Company’s recent introduction of their twin-turbo 3.5L V6 has brought the industry limelight to high tech, forced induction V6 powertrains. Rumors of General Motors joining in on the turbocharged V6 arena have been around for several years now, however GMI has confirmed that The General really will be joining Ford in the high tech turbo bandwagon.

According to GM engineering sources, GM is currently working on a twin-turbo 3.0L V6. Development on the new engine is so far along that it has a PRO code of “LF3.” The naturally aspirated 3.0L debuted in several 2010 products with direct injection and has the code “LF1.”

GMI was not able to obtain projected power ratings on the new engine, however output is very application specific under new SAE testing rules. Sources did say to expect the engine to rival Ford’s EcoBoost 3.5L.

The engine’s introduction is expected in late 2011 or early 2012 in the Cadillac XTS. Sources also state that GM is looking to use the engine in the Cadillac ATS and possibly even the next Chevrolet Camaro. Cadillac has historically always debuted new variants of the High-Feature V6 lineup, so it comes as no surprise that the XTS is the likely to pioneer the 3.0L twin-turbo.

Most rumors surrounding the potential of a turbocharged V6 out of GM have centered on the company’s 3.6L V6. A couple of years ago GMI was told that GM had twin-turbo 3.6L V6’s in development that were generating as much as 435 horsepower. Information regarding the potential of a blown 3.6L silenced for years until GM showed a 3.6L twin-turbo V6-powered Camaro show car at the 2009 SEMA show. The Camaro show car was generating 425 horsepower.

Good to see GM is finally having some fun with turbos as well! Who knows Joe, maybe a 6er will have some luck with dropping one of these in (along with a new tranny, suspension and among other things :lol2: )

Play nice kids.

I'm super excited about this motor. Ford gave GM a wake up call that there is a market for boosted V6 cars. TT V6 Camaro? I'd look past the ugliness for one.

The Z28 is still undecided, and people would freak if an SS or Z28 Camaro had a V6, even if it did make +430HP.

I say make a whole new trim level name for the TT motor.

Z28 would be a good platform for it since the origonal was more about handling with a high reving engine. Probably would be a nice balanced ride through the tighter corners.

I thought for sure once Pontiac & the G6 coupe was announced dead that we would see the G6 become the next Malibu coupe or Monty. But sadly no :D

I think if they made a Malibu Coupe with the option of the V6 turbo or naturally aspirated would be awesome

Coupe or Sedan, I'd love to see this turbo V6 in the AWD Regal. Better have the six speed manual mated to it. Can you say, American Evo and STi killer? Oho.
