2019 Cadillac CT6

2019 Cadillac CT6 Design
As cool as a 550-hp luxury sedan is, the CT6’s tauter, more trendy skin is exactly what you’ll see first. The minor changes are seemingly a mid-cycle upgrade—- new headlights and taillights and lightly updated fascias—- but their cumulative impact updates the CT6 into today. The headlights frown ahead, and in addition to the LED ribbons that flank them, complement the broader and slimmer grille. This is a really handsome car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 progresses Cadillac’s traditional vertical taillights, by including an aspect that bleeds into the trunk where it fulfills a chrome strip that covers the width of the lid. It’s less effective than the updated fascia– the front end looks larger, however the new rear looks 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 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 variation with at least 31 miles of range. We’ll update 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 automatic will sign up with the range’s less powerful engines. The existing CT6 utilizes a household of 8-speeds. Active safety will continue to play a significant role in the CT6, as it stays the only Cadillac to provide 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 safety. Automatic emergency braking assists avoid crashes and active lane control keeps it in the white lines. A surround-view cam system assists with challenging car park maneuvers, while emergency braking also functions while driving in reverse. Night-vision cameras can make driving in the dark much easier.
