The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the brand name’s present well-rounded star. This elegant technological leader has fresh styling, among the market’s most innovative 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 elegant skin is what you’ll see initially. The minor changes are apparently a mid-cycle update—- new headlights and taillights and gently updated fascias—- however their cumulative impact improves the CT6 into today. The headlights frown ahead, and in addition to the LED ribbons that flank them, complement the wider and slimmer grille. This is a really good-looking car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 develops Cadillac’s traditional vertical taillights, by including an element that bleeds into the trunk where it satisfies a chrome strip that spans the width of the cover. It’s less successful than the upgraded fascia– the front end looks larger, however 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, 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 variation with at least 31 miles of range. We’ll upgrade this if we hear differently from Cadillac. It’s likewise an open concern regarding whether the CT6 V-Sport’s new 10-speed automatic will sign up with the range’s less effective engines. The current 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 use the company’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving-assist system.Cadillac skips 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 assists 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 situation braking likewise functions while driving in reverse. Night-vision video cameras can make driving in the dark easier.

The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is anticipated to begin production in September. Costs for the 2019 Cadillac CT6 have not yet been announced. Prices remains unsure, however we prepare for a non-V-Sport cost range just like the current model, which ranges from $56,095 to $80,080 (location fees 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.
