The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the brand’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 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 elegant skin is exactly what you’ll see first. The minor changes are apparently a mid-cycle update—- new headlights and taillights and lightly upgraded fascias—- but their cumulative impact improves the CT6 into today. The headlights grimace ahead, and in addition to the LED ribbons that flank them, match the broader and slimmer grille. This is a very handsome car from the front.
The 2019 CT6 progresses Cadillac’s conventional vertical taillights, by including an aspect that bleeds into the trunk where it fulfills a chrome strip that spans the width of the lid. It’s less effective than the upgraded fascia– the front end looks broader, but the brand-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 must indicate a 2.0-liter, turbo-4, a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6, and a plug-in hybrid version with a minimum of 31 miles of range. We’ll update this if we hear in a different way from Cadillac.
It’s likewise an open concern regarding whether the CT6 V-Sport’s brand-new 10-speed automatic will join the range’s less effective engines. The present CT6 utilizes a family of 8-speeds. Active safety will continue to play a significant role in the CT6, as it stays 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, go for the CT6 Platinum.
Beyond Super Cruise, the CT6 ticks all the other boxes for active security. Automatic emergency situation braking assists avoid collisions and active lane control keeps it in the white lines. A surround-view camera system aids with difficult car park maneuvers, while emergency situation braking likewise operates while driving in reverse. Night-vision video cameras can make driving in the dark easier.
