The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the brand’s current all-around star. This trendy technological leader has fresh styling, among the industry’s most innovative semi-autonomous driver-assist systems, and for 2019, a brand-new twin-turbocharged V-8 engine.
As cool as a 550-hp luxury sedan is, the CT6’s tauter, more stylish skin is exactly what you’ll see initially. The minor changes are seemingly a mid-cycle upgrade—- new headlights and taillights and lightly upgraded fascias—- however their cumulative effect improves the CT6 into today. The headlights frown ahead, and along with the LED ribbons that flank them, complement the larger and slimmer grille. This is a very handsome car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 develops Cadillac’s traditional vertical taillights, by adding an element that bleeds into the trunk where it fulfills a chrome strip that spans the width of the lid. It’s less successful than the updated fascia– the front end looks broader, however the brand-new rear appearances too narrow.
The 4.2-liter twin-turbo V-8 also serves in the CT6 Platinum, albeit in a detuned mode that produces 500 hp. Cadillac hasn’t detailed the engines in the 2019 beyond its new toy, however they’re likely carryover items from last year. That ought to imply a 2.0-liter, turbo-4, a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6, and a plug-in hybrid version with at least 31 miles of range. We’ll update this if we hear in a different way from Cadillac. It’s also an open question regarding whether the CT6 V-Sport’s brand-new 10-speed automated will sign up with the range’s less powerful engines. The current CT6 uses a household of 8-speeds.
Active security will continue to play a significant function in the CT6, as it stays the only Cadillac to use the company’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving-assist system.Cadillac avoids Super Cruise in the high-performance CT6—- if you desire the V-8 and Super Cruise, choose the CT6 Platinum.
Beyond Super Cruise, the CT6 ticks all the other boxes for active security. Automatic emergency situation braking helps prevent collisions and active lane control keeps it in the white lines. A surround-view video camera system assists with challenging car park maneuvers, while emergency braking likewise functions while driving in reverse. Night-vision cams can make driving in the dark much easier.
The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is anticipated to begin production in September. Rates for the 2019 Cadillac CT6 have not yet been announced. Pricing remains unsure, however we anticipate a non-V-Sport rate range much like the existing model, which varies from $56,095 to $80,080 (destination costs included). The CT6’s competitors will include the BMW 5-Series, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and the Audi A6. It goes on sale in late 2018.
