The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the brand name’s current all-around star. This stylish 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 exactly what you’ll see first. The minor changes are apparently a mid-cycle upgrade—- brand-new headlights and taillights and gently upgraded fascias—- but their cumulative effect improves the CT6 into today. The headlights scowl ahead, and in addition to the LED ribbons that flank them, match the larger and slimmer grille. This is an extremely handsome car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 progresses Cadillac’s conventional vertical taillights, by adding a component that bleeds into the trunk where it meets a chrome strip that spans the width of the lid. It’s less successful than the updated fascia– the front end looks wider, 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 last year. That should mean 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 upgrade this if we hear in a different way from Cadillac.
It’s also an open concern as to whether the CT6 V-Sport’s brand-new 10-speed automatic will join the range’s less powerful engines. The existing CT6 utilizes a family of 8-speeds. Active security will continue to play a significant role in the CT6, as it remains the only Cadillac to offer the company’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving-assist system.Cadillac skips 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 assists avoid crashes and active lane control keeps it in the white lines. A surround-view camera system aids with difficult parking lot maneuvers, while emergency situation braking likewise operates while driving in reverse. Night-vision cameras can make driving in the dark easier.
2019 Cadillac CT6 Release Date and Price
The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is anticipated to begin production in September. Costs for the 2019 Cadillac CT6 have actually not yet been revealed. Rates remains uncertain, however we anticipate a non-V-Sport price range similar to the current model, which ranges from $56,095 to $80,080 (location costs 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.
