One reason why I'm excited for the upcoming 2014 Cadillac CTS is that the car will have a twin-turbo 3.6 V6. Here's that engine supposedly in a Chinese 2014 Cadllac XTS, complete with 410 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque.

The current XTS comes with a 3.6 liter V6, so how do I know that this particular car has the new direct-injection TT motor? Well, the reputable Car News China thinks so, and it's not hard to double check that the current 3.6 XTS has different rear badging.

There's not a lot else to go on, since the rest of the exterior is exactly the same. Both Car News China and Autohome.cn believe the car will get a slightly revised face when it goes into production, at least.

The 2014 CTS is supposed to draw 420 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque out of this engine. No word on how it sounds, but hopefully GM figures out how to make a good V6 exhaust tone.
