Cadillac focused on the V16 engine for the Escalade


During the launch of the Cadillac Escalade-V, Product Manager David Schiavone revealed that great attention was paid to the V16 engine when designing a sports SUV. Finally, the manufacturer selected an eight-cylinder power source.

Still, there was a time when tech people talked about the V16 engine of a car behemoth. Schiavone says this in conversation with the American GM authority, which is different from General Motors. If the car manufacturer had opted for a V16 engine, the block would have to be completely new. The manufacturer does not have the same engine used, let alone sleep.

Pre-planned restoration V16

Unfortunately, the return of the V16 engine has been reviewed previously. The manufacturer even announced a reading model with a power plant. It was in 2003 that the brand introduced the Sixteen car concept. The mobile phone model was on the selection list for production potential. The Americans intended to wage war on Rolls-Royce and Maybach, who at the time showed that the market for luxury cars was bigger than the industry had imagined. It later became not so, but aside. Sixteen also did not come.

V16 became V8

The V16 engine is no stranger to Cadillac, though it has been almost a century since the American car manufacturer introduced the engine concept in a series style. Repeating that trick almost 100 years later would be amazing. Cadillac has already indicated that it will provide only electric vehicles by the end of this decade. The eight-cylinder engine is now selected for the Escalade-V. The barrier produces 682 hp, part thanks to a large charger. The manufacturer has never released a powerful V8 before.

Bugatti 16-cylinder only

Currently there is only one model with a 16-cylinder engine in production and that is the Bugatti Chiron. Hypercar has sixteen cylinders in the so-called W-shaped, because of the rated space (15 degrees) of cylinders per cylinder bank.
