Cadillac is introducing the next generation of its SUV, the Cadillac Mountain, which features a number of significant changes from the first generation, including the introduction of a new 3.0L inline-four engine.
While the 3.6L V6 was used on the first model, it was later upgraded to a 6.2L V8 that is now in the second generation.
Cadillac’s Mountain SUV is powered by the new inline-six engine, and we can see that there are some notable changes that can be made with the new engine, especially when compared to the first-gen engine.
Here’s a closer look at the new 3-liter inline-4:1.
Engine layout and cylinder head diameter2.
Twin overhead camshafts, one for each cylinder3.
Single-valve throttle bodies, each of which includes a turbocharger for direct injection4.
Direct injection and turboshaft compression, including variable camshades5.
Direct induction, which is a turbocharged version of induction that is a little different in that it can run on gasoline or diesel fuel instead of airFuel consumption and range are also much improved on the new Cadillac model, with the average range getting up to 55 miles (64 km) on a single tank of gas and a combined range of up to 210 miles (340 km) with the full tank.
The Cadillac Mountain is expected to be offered in the first half of 2020, and it will be a full-size SUV that’s powered by a six-speed manual transmission with all-wheel drive.
The new version will be priced between $23,800 and $29,600 ($27,200-$32,200) and it is expected that the first production car will be sold in 2021.
