The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the brand’s present all-around star. This stylish technological leader has fresh styling, one of the market’s most innovative 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 high-end sedan is, the CT6’s tauter, more stylish skin is exactly what you’ll see first. The minor changes are seemingly a mid-cycle update—- new headlights and taillights and gently upgraded fascias—- but their cumulative effect modernizes the CT6 into today. The headlights scowl ahead, and together with the LED ribbons that flank them, complement the wider and slimmer grille. This is a really handsome car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 evolves Cadillac’s standard 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 effective than the updated fascia– the front end looks wider, but the new rear looks too narrow.
2019 Cadillac CT6 Engine
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 brand-new toy, but they’re most likely carryover products from last year. That need to 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 differently from Cadillac.
It’s likewise an open question as to whether the CT6 V-Sport’s brand-new 10-speed automated will join the variety’s less effective engines. The present CT6 uses a household of 8-speeds. Active safety will continue to play a significant function in the CT6, as it stays 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, choose the CT6 Platinum.
Beyond Super Cruise, the CT6 ticks all the other boxes for active security. Automatic emergency braking assists avoid accidents and active lane control keeps it in the white lines. A surround-view cam system assists with challenging parking area maneuvers, while emergency situation braking likewise operates while driving in reverse. Night-vision cams can make driving in the dark much easier.

The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is expected to start production in September. Rates for the 2019 Cadillac CT6 have actually not yet been announced.
