Cadillac has officially released pricing for the 2014 XTS Vsport. Buyers can expect to pay $63,020 for the fleet four-door, including destination and handling fees. That kind of coin will snag you a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 good for 410 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. As you likely already know, engineers have done a lot more than simply bolt a pair of turbos onto the company's tried and true naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6. The engine uses an all-new block, strengthened connecting rods and domed aluminum pistons and is fed through a revised direct-injection fuel system. Combined, the tweaks allow the V6 to suck down 12 psi of boost.

The price tag puts the 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport well under potential (if ambitious) competitors like the Audi S6 at $71,900, plus destination fees. A base BMW 550i will set you back $62,700, excluding destination charges, but throwing options at the German sedan will quickly see that number climb higher. You can check out the full press release below for more information.

2014 Cadillac XTS Packs Twin Turbo Power

New V-6 engine option produces 410 horsepower

DETROIT – Cadillac will add a new option to its XTS luxury sedan: More power and torque. Starting in August, the all-new Cadillac Twin Turbo V6 will go into production as an optional engine for the 2014 XTS.

The new Cadillac Twin Turbo V6 is also a signature feature of the upcoming all-new 2014 CTS luxury performance sedan. In the XTS, the twin turbo will produce an SAE-certified 410 horsepower (306 kW) and 369 lb-ft of torque (500 Nm), making it one of the most power-dense six-cylinder engines among luxury cars. The engine delivers 105 lb-ft more torque over the standard V-6 from1900 to 5600 rpm, providing seemingly endless torque for vehicle responsiveness.

"The addition of the new Cadillac Twin Turbo expands and elevates the XTS luxury sedan," said Bob Ferguson, vice president Global Cadillac. "This is a compelling enhancement to what is already one of the most technically advanced sedans in our history."

In both the CTS and XTS product lines, the twin turbo will be the centerpiece of a new model offering called Vsport. The new Vsport is inspired by and slotted "underneath" Cadillac's elite high-performance V-Series models. Vsport includes the best-performing technical elements inside the "regular" car line in a single model, headlined by Twin Turbo engine.

The new Cadillac Twin Turbo is a comprehensive upgrade to the 3.6L dual overhead cam V6 that is standard in the XTS in the U.S. market. Almost every component is unique, including:

All-new cylinder block casting
Strengthened connecting rods
Machined, domed aluminum pistons with top steel ring carrier for greater strength
10.2:1 compression ratio
Patented, integrated charge air cooler system with low-volume air ducts
Two turbochargers producing more than 12 pounds of boost (80 kPa)
Vacuum-actuated wastegates with electronic control valves
All-new direct injection fuel system
Tuned air inlet and outlet resonators, aluminum cam covers and other features that contribute to quietness and smoothness.
The cylinder heads are also unique. They feature a high-tumble intake port design that enhances the motion of the air charge for a more-efficient burn when it is mixed with the direct-injected fuel and ignited in the combustion chamber.

Pricing for the 2014 XTS starts at $45,525, including destination fees, unchanged from 2013, with standard equipment including the 3.6L V6 engine that makes 306 hp, CUE, intelligent brake assist and Magnetic Ride Control. Three option packages are available: Luxury, Premium and Platinum Collections.

The XTS Vsport model will be offered only in the up-level Premium and Platinum Collections. In addition to the twin turbo engine, Vsport offers upgraded 20-inch wheels and a unique grille, with pricing starting at $63,020 including destination fees.

      For a car that Cadillac shouldn't have built IMHO, they sure are making it rather interesting.

        I agree 100%. I'm actually amazed that this version of an XTS even exists! Could you imagine if a DTS V-Sport existed? The fact that they have managed to make some lemonade out of this comparative lemon is pretty commendable.

        What's BWM? I'm confused. /s see, you don't even know what it is. Why would I pay extra (to borrow your one liner there 550) extra for seats and a steering wheel when Caddy gives it to me standard for less? Not to mention the ATS drives better than the 3 series, Cadillac is on fire, there is a difference between knowing what a brand once was (BMW) and what a brand has in store (Cadillac), I like what I am seeing out of Cadillac. Not to mention now with this car you have a full sized Cadillac that can smoke many sports sedans in a stoplight race, it's mental, I love it.

          You made the same error 3 times in 3 places. The "edit button" excuse doesn't work for that.

          usually id agree, complaining about a spelling error is usually the sign that there is no real argument. in your case it works because you were talking about how "bMw has a name" and you didnt get the name right facepalm*

        BMW is for people who care entirely too much about what other people think of them, yet have no idea how their actions and bearing actually affect how people perceive them. In this case, you think BMW buys you class, and you show yourself to be a vain, shallow, superficial child.

        ....people who know nothing about cars (see Zach Bowman, Yoyoma, Laser, Alfonso Alvarez) recognize that brand, golddiggers recognize it, hoochies and hoes know all about that magic letters ..... Sounds like a good reason to stay away from BMWs.

        The Taurus SHO isn't even the best buy in its class, let alone competing with real RWD sport sedans.

        The closest FoMoCo product to this is the MKS EcoBoost. And I'm sorry, but at this point the XTS dusts it off.

      Lot's of options at this price point. And a Caddy isn't one of them.

        I agree. I would not consider a Caddy over a $20K range. They're far to reach the big 3.

        Yeah, the CTS with the same drivetrain will be the obvious enthusiast pick, but the XTS is quite roomy and quite a bit larger.

          It would have the same engine as the CTS TT6....but not the same drivetrain, or even orientation in the chassis

        You're ******* retarded... The cars have two different missions completely. This is just for those who want a little more power with their XTS.

      I honestly like the XTS. Would I take it over the CTS? No, but still a solid car that received a shot of adrenaline.

      if the 0-60 isnt 4.5 then that means they didnt take their time with it

        I doubt too many buyers are going to be drag racing their XTS. As long as it's highway passing is strong it will do well. The CTS-V and ATS-V are the one's that need to be fast.

      This may not be the best car Cadillac has ever built, but its easily one of the nicest driving, comfortable cars with one of the best interiors out there today, especially in this price range. The more I drive them, the more I appreciate it for what it is. I can't wait to try out the Turbo 6.

          As much I seem to dislike the XTS - there is no way I'd pick a a FWD volume sedan from a dying company over an AWD (even FWD-bias) luxury sedan whose warranty you can bank on (because Obama, am i rite?)

        I have not driven one, or even been a passenger, but I agree about the great interior. It is drop dead beautiful. Very rich and luxurious.
