The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the brand’s existing well-rounded star. This trendy technological leader has fresh styling, among the industry’s most advanced 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 minor changes are seemingly a mid-cycle update—- new headlights and taillights and gently updated fascias—- but their cumulative effect improves the CT6 into today. The headlights frown ahead, and in addition to the LED ribbons that flank them, match the broader and slimmer grille. This is an extremely handsome car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 evolves Cadillac’s conventional vertical taillights, by including an element that bleeds into the trunk where it fulfills a chrome strip that covers the width of the lid. It’s less effective than the updated fascia– the front end looks broader, but the 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, but they’re likely carryover items from in 2015. That must 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 update this if we hear in a different way from Cadillac. It’s also an open question as to whether the CT6 V-Sport’s new 10-speed automatic will sign up with the range’s less powerful engines. The existing CT6 uses a family of 8-speeds.
Active safety will continue to play a major 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 want the V-8 and Super Cruise, opt for the CT6 Platinum.
Beyond Super Cruise, the CT6 ticks all the other boxes for active security. Automatic emergency situation braking helps prevent crashes and active lane control keeps it in the white lines. A surround-view video camera system helps with challenging car park maneuvers, while emergency braking likewise works while driving in reverse. Night-vision cams can make driving in the dark easier.
2019 Cadillac CT6 Release Date and Price
The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is anticipated to start production in September. Costs for the 2019 Cadillac CT6 have actually not yet been revealed. Prices remains unsure, however we expect a non-V-Sport rate range similar to the present model, which varies from $56,095 to $80,080 (destination fees included). The CT6’s competitors will consist of the BMW 5-Series, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and the Audi A6. It goes on sale in late 2018.
