The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the brand name’s present all-around star. This trendy technological leader has fresh styling, one of the market’s most sophisticated semi-autonomous driver-assist systems, and for 2019, a new twin-turbocharged V-8 engine.
2019 Cadillac CT6 Design
As cool as a 550-hp high-end sedan is, the CT6’s tauter, more trendy skin is exactly what you’ll see initially. The small changes are relatively a mid-cycle update—- new headlights and taillights and gently updated fascias—- however their cumulative effect improves the CT6 into today. The headlights scowl ahead, and together with the LED ribbons that flank them, match the larger and slimmer grille. This is a really good-looking car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 progresses Cadillac’s traditional vertical taillights, by adding an aspect that bleeds into the trunk where it satisfies a chrome strip that covers the width of the lid. It’s less successful than the updated fascia– the front end looks larger, but the new rear looks 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, but they’re most likely carryover products from in 2015. That ought to mean a 2.0-liter, turbo-4, a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6, and a plug-in hybrid variant with at least 31 miles of range. We’ll upgrade this if we hear in a different way from Cadillac.
It’s also an open question regarding whether the CT6 V-Sport’s new 10-speed automated will sign up with the range’s less powerful engines. The present CT6 utilizes a family of 8-speeds. Active security will continue to play a significant function in the CT6, as it remains the only Cadillac to provide the company’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving-assist system.Cadillac avoids Super Cruise in the high-performance CT6—- if you want 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 avoid crashes and active lane control keeps it in the white lines. A surround-view cam system assists with difficult parking lot maneuvers, while emergency situation braking likewise functions while driving in reverse. Night-vision cameras can make driving in the dark simpler.
2019 Cadillac CT6 Release Date and Price
The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is expected to begin production in September. Costs for the 2019 Cadillac CT6 have not yet been announced. Rates stays unsure, however we expect a non-V-Sport cost range just like the existing model, which ranges from $56,095 to $80,080 (destination fees included). The CT6’s competition will consist of the BMW 5-Series, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and the Audi A6. It goes on sale in late 2018.
