A new Engine Boost indicator in 2016 model year Cadillacs equipped with the 2.0L Turbo LTG engine would probably take the cake for being the most unknown, undisclosed, and otherwise under-represented feature of a new vehicle. Heck, it wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the RPO-level changes list nor by Cadillac when discussing 2016 model year products.
The indicator provides a digital readout of engine boost in pounds per square inch (PSI). It can be configured to display on the right or the left section of the DIC, but not in the center (middle) section; we’d actually question anyone’s need to have it there in the first place
The new engine boost gauge made its debut on 2016 Cadillac vehicles with turbo-charged engines, and we have confirmed its presence on the following vehicles:
- Any 2016 Cadillac ATS with a turbo-charged engine, including:
- 2016 Cadillac CTS 2.0T
The GM Authority Take
We’re fans of the new boost gauge, having found it to be and fun and useful. There’s just something inherently good that comes with being able to find out what the turbo on your engine is doing at any given moment, simply with the flick of a finger.
