The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the brand name’s current all-around star. This stylish 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 stylish skin is exactly what you’ll see initially. The small changes are apparently a mid-cycle upgrade—- new headlights and taillights and gently upgraded fascias—- however their cumulative impact improves the CT6 into today. The headlights frown ahead, and together with the LED ribbons that flank them, complement the larger and slimmer grille. This is a really good-looking car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 evolves Cadillac’s traditional vertical taillights, by adding a component that bleeds into the trunk where it meets a chrome strip that covers the width of the lid. It’s less successful than the updated 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, however they’re likely carryover products from last year. That must indicate 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 concern as to whether the CT6 V-Sport’s new 10-speed automated will join the range’s less effective engines. The present CT6 utilizes a household of 8-speeds. Active security will continue to play a major role in the CT6, as it stays the only Cadillac to offer 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, opt for the CT6 Platinum.
Beyond Super Cruise, the CT6 ticks all the other boxes for active safety. Automatic emergency situation braking helps prevent accidents and active lane control keeps it in the white lines. A surround-view camera system aids with challenging car park maneuvers, while emergency braking also operates 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 expected to start production in September. Costs for the 2019 Cadillac CT6 have not yet been revealed. Pricing stays uncertain, however we anticipate a non-V-Sport cost range similar to the present model, which ranges from $56,095 to $80,080 (location charges consisted of). 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.
