Cadillac 4 Cylinder

This is what the world has come to.   GM is putting a four-banger in a Cadillac.  

But this isn't the I4 of old, this is a modern, direct injected turbo with variable cam timing.  The GM 2.0L Ecotech makes 270HP and 260lb-ft of torque.  It is a similar engine to the Ford 2.0L Ecoboost which is now the fuel economy option for the Explorer. 

By comparison, the FWD versions of the famed Northstar engine family (LD8) made 275HP and 300ft-lbs, out of a whopping 4.6L of displacement.

I believe this is the same engine used in the Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky. If so, with an ECM flash and new pressure sensors HP can be raised to 290. With a high flow cat it will go to 300+ and all still be under GM warranty.

Way to go GM

The way forward ( to an o.d timer like myself ) hard to swallow but necessary
