Cadillac Engine makes Wards’ 10 Best Engines list
While we love it when we see our vehicles being recognized by major publications and institutions, sometimes it’s even sweeter to see specific pieces of technology recognized, especially by equally important icons of the automotive industry. For instance, the 3.6L Cadillac engine made Wards’ 10 Best Engines list for 2016. WardsAuto is a massive automotive publication, and having one of our engines make it onto the list is pretty huge. It will be one of the engines found in the upcoming 2016 Cadillac CT6.

“The 3.6 delivers the kind of power and lusty exhaust note you associate with a V8, for the price of a V6. Plus, it’s loaded with advanced technology, including fuel-saving cylinder deactivation,” stated the Director of Content at Wards Auto, Drew Winter. We love the new 3.6L V6 engine that was just introduced this year, first being found as options in the 2016 Cadillac ATS and CTS.
When conducting research for this year’s list, WardsAuto took a close look at 31 different engines coming from 11 different manufacturers. They looked at things like power, fuel efficiency, refinement and new technology before comparing it to similar engines and propulsion systems.
Those advanced technologies that Winter mentioned improve the fuel efficiency of the vehicle it resides in, which will soon include the 2017 Cadillac XT5 crossover. The technologies include things like direct injection, continuously variable valve timing and, as he mentioned, Active Fuel Management, a cylinder deactivation program that will automatically deactivate and reactivate cylinders depending on your driving conditions.
