GM working on twin-turbo 3.0L V6 to rival FoMoCo’s 3.5L V6 EcoBoost

Ford’s 3.5L V6 EcoBoost has been selling well for the Dearborn automaker helping boost its image of performance and fuel-efficiency. According GM Inside News General Motors is also joining the turbocharged V6 segment with a new twin-turbo 3.0L V6 in the works.

GM’s engineering sources say that development on the engine is so far along that it has a RPO code of “LF3.” The naturally aspirated 3.0L debuted in several 2010 vehicles with direct injection and has the code “LF1.”

Unfortunately, GMI was unable to squeeze out horsepower and torque ratings from the engineers.

The twin-turbo 3.0L V6 is expected to debut in the production Cadillac XTS and sources say that it will also find its way under the hood of that Cadillac ATS and probably the next Chevrolet Camaro.
