CTS to get 420hp twin turbo v6

I'm none to happy to see Caddy topping 400hp while Ford is sitting barely over 350. Especially given that when the Twin Force was announced as an option for the then upcoming MKS it was said to produce 400hp/400lbs.

The XTS is getting it as well...must be for AWD model.

It's time for Lincoln to drop the bomb and give us a 3.5 EB MKS with 550 -650hp (or fill in your hp request here_______) in regular and LWB models.

Do we know for sure that the XTS will make the same amount of power?

Lincoln needs to step up it's game now. That should be addressed with the new MKS however.

Ford's 3.5L Ecoboost already makes 420 lb-ft of Torque in the F-150, 70 lb-ft more than what it makes in Front drive models, suggesting it is a limitation caused by the transmission.

550 hp for the ancient MK S is like to put a 500cc mammary prothesis of silicon in a 85 years old women! Is a crazy idea

They also announced an 8 speed auto. Wouldn't that be one of the two transmissions be co-developed by Ford and GM? If so I would expect that limitation to be illuminated soon at Ford also.
