Cadillac Boss Johan de Nysschen recently stopped by (virtually) Jalopnik to answer a round of questions from the readers. Johan is a man who isn't afraid to lay out future plans like some in the business, so it's no surprise that he spilled some future product beans while chatting it up. Most notable of his answers to the many questions? The fact that a new family of V-6 engines is coming, and will be debuted in the new CT6 sedan.

There are no technical details yet for the new engine series, but de Nysschen says that will arrive in the next month or so. These mills should sit nicely alongside the twin-turbocharged V-8 units also mentioned that will power the more potent Cadillac offerings. As horrible as the name CT6-V might potentially sound, the car itself will probably be wonderful.

A bit more news culled from the AMA session revealed that Cadillac is still working on the ELR. Per de Nysschen, the gas-electric machine will receive some technical updates that will hopefully turn it into a better product. It isn't exactly a sales hit, and its Volt cousin is a much better value proposition while also being more enjoyable to drive as well.

Finally, Cadillac fans can expect to see the CUE infotainment system getting a bit of love. An update to the system arrives in 2016, and a full refresh is just a few years down the road.
