The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the brand name’s present all-around star. This trendy technological leader has fresh styling, among the market’s most sophisticated semi-autonomous driver-assist systems, and for 2019, a brand-new twin-turbocharged V-8 engine.
2019 Cadillac CT6 Design
As cool as a 550-hp luxury sedan is, the CT6’s tauter, more elegant skin is what you’ll see initially. The small changes are relatively a mid-cycle update—- brand-new headlights and taillights and lightly updated fascias—- but their cumulative effect modernizes the CT6 into today. The headlights scowl ahead, and in addition to the LED ribbons that flank them, complement the larger and slimmer grille. This is an extremely good-looking car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 progresses Cadillac’s standard 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 upgraded fascia– the front end looks larger, however the new rear appearances too narrow.

The 4.2-liter twin-turbo V-8 likewise 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 should suggest a 2.0-liter, turbo-4, a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6, and a plug-in hybrid version with a minimum of 31 miles of range. We’ll upgrade this if we hear in a different way from Cadillac.
It’s likewise an open question as to whether the CT6 V-Sport’s new 10-speed automated will sign up with the range’s less powerful engines. The existing CT6 uses a family of 8-speeds. Active security will continue to play a major function in the CT6, as it remains 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, go for the CT6 Platinum.
Beyond Super Cruise, the CT6 ticks all the other boxes for active security. Automatic emergency situation braking assists prevent accidents and active lane control keeps it in the white lines. A surround-view video camera system aids with challenging parking lot maneuvers, while emergency situation braking also operates while driving in reverse. Night-vision cams can make driving in the dark much easier.
2019 Cadillac CT6 Release Date and Price
The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is expected to start production in September. Prices for the 2019 Cadillac CT6 have not yet been revealed. Pricing stays unsure, but we expect a non-V-Sport price range much like the present model, which ranges from $56,095 to $80,080 (location charges included). The CT6’s competition will include the BMW 5-Series, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and the Audi A6. It goes on sale in late 2018.
