Now that the 2014 Cadillac CTS has made its official debut at the 2013 New York Auto Show, the American automaker has released a series of videos showing off the vehicle.

Powering the CTS in top trim is a 420 hp twin-turbo V6 engine – more output than a BMW 550i. At the base, a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder (borrowed from the ATS) making 272 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque and achieving 30 mpg on the highway is offered. Stepping up a level, a direct injection 3.6-liter V6 making 321 hp is available matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission in rear-drive models (or a 6-speed auto for AWD models).

Check out the videos from Cadillac below.

Take a long look at the track-prepped matte-black CTS-V above. That’s just one of the many cars entered in this weekend’s Cadillac Challenge. The event is the first of its kind, encouraging Cadillac owners and drivers to get down and dirty on the track.

The first event will take place at Autoclub Speedway, in Fontana, California. Over fifteen competitors have registered, including this vehicle piloted by Team Heavyweight Racing driver Bob “Onstar” Michaels.

Michaels’ car “Blackhawk” is naturally, a modified CTS-V and will likely appear alongside other D3 Group modified Cadillacs.  To learn more about the Cadillac Challenge Racing Series and the D3 Group , check out our earlier post here.

While Blackhawk will likely get a scorching time around the track, it will be penalized for having race-track ready modifications. This is done to help encourage more Cadillac owners to come join in on the fun with their stock cars.

Surely things are changing around the automotive manufacturing world. Ford continues to push its EcoBoost engines and now GM appears to have a pair of twin-turbo V6 engines currently in development.

We first heard about GM working on a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 powerplant almost two years ago and it was widely believed that the company would probably stick to only one twin-turbo V6 since its fifth generation of their small block V8 was also around coming. Now, reports are surfacing that GM does indeed have a second, 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 in the works.

Looking back on 2009, GM and Jay Leno teamed up to build a Chevy Camaro Concept for SEMA that packed a 3.6L twin-turbo V6. Back then, the American automaker claimed it produced 425-hp, so it’s probably safe to speculate that a production 3.6L twin-turbo V6 from GM would have at least 400-hp.

The 3.0L twin-turbo V6 should make its way into the Cadillac XTS (pictured above) and CTS models with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 3.6L however could be seen in the upcoming ATS-V performance car. The 3.6L twin-turbo V6 currently in development might only be seen in Cadillac models, though that’s just speculation.

Imagine, if you will, a group of Cadillacs driving together. In your mind, it’s a serene, soft cruise, with the drivers enjoying the scenery, the road, and more importantly the buttery-smooth ride of their American luxury cars.

Not anymore. Many Cadillacs, like the CTS-V, include a viciously powerful engine, not to mention suspension and braking components designed for maximum performance. These machines need the apex of a mind-bending corner to reach their limits and the purity of a race-track to fulfill their purpose.

That’s the main reason Cadillac enthusiasts, as well as tuning group D3 Racing, have partnered to create the Cadillac Challenge. It’s the first Cadillac-exclusive race that allows owners to compete with one another in a “Time-Attack” format. David Caldwell, a PR representative from Cadillac, said “There are certain cars that compel their owners to drive them to the fullest extent. I think that’s how this idea and series was conceived for CTS-V drivers.”
