GM Developing Twin-Turbo V6 to Rival Ford's EcoBoost


You knew it would only take time before General Motors took on Ford and its EcoBoost engine, and that time has just about come reports GMInsideNews. According to GMI's sources inside General Motors, the automaker is currently in development of a 3.0-liter V6 with twin-turbochargers. There's no word on actual output, but the same sources say it should rival the larger (3.5-liter) Ford powerplant. Ford's EcoBoost engine makes 365-hp in the SHO and was designed as a V8 replacement.

The engine's code is LF3, in direct reference to the LF1 direct-injection 3.0L V6 currently offered in several GM products.

Currently GM offers a turbocharged 2.8-liter V6 in the Cadillac SRX (above), which makes 300-hp and 295 ft-lbs of torque, so a reasonable bump over that output is certain.

This new twin-turbo V6 is expected in the flagship Cadillac XTS around 2012 and is likely to be used in several other GM products, including the upcoming 3 Series fighter, the ATS. In addition, there's even a strong possibility that such a motor could find its way into the Camaro Ė something which was previewed at last year's SEMA Show, when GM showed a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 stuffed under the hood of the muscle car.

Jay Leno has too much money, and too much time on his hands. He's busy ruining being a car enthusiast like he has late-night TV imo....

GM you arrived to the party late again...

I wonder why they don't just do that to the current DI V6 in the V6 Camaro? Heck, if a TT version of that makes 400HP and can still get 28mpg highway....you'd have a great package for a sports sadan, coupe, etc.

Maybe the DI 3.6 can't stands no more...

^Well, it's probably going to be a 3L version instead of the 3.6...but who knows. I love power, and respect it in all it's forms. While I still would like to see a 5L V8 DI, you just cant' let the V8 die can you.....can you?

I thought the kit on the GM at SEMA was an STS setup...

I've got a few reliable sources that confirmed this.

I wish GM would just say fukc it and make a TT V8 and make Ford look stupid. I always wondered what kind of power the 5.3L could handle anyways.
