2019 Cadillac CT6 V-Sport now has a 550 horsepower V8

Cadillac CT6 will apparently be getting a major power upgrade since the new V Sport model will be the first model to get a direct injected 4.2 liter biturbo V8 that is said to carry out 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts) and 627 pound feet (850 Newton metres) of torque in the top output, but there will also be a smaller, 500 horsepower (373 kilowatts) version.

The engine, supposedly has a completely clean sheet design. In fact, the engineering emphasized that despite the compact packaging, this can still produce substantial performance. Cadillac has this thing they called the “hot V” where the exhaust exits from the valley between the heads, instead of on the outside like that on most V8s. Aside from that, it also works with the two twin-scroll turbos in the exhaust that manifolds at the top of the engine. According to the automaker, this set up does not only create a tighter package, but also reduces turbo lag.

The engine is also made with lightweight materials like an aluminum block and pistons to cut down on weight. There is also a forged steel crankshaft and pistons, ensuring that the powerplant can handle the turbo’s 20 pounds (1.38 bar) of boost.

Cadillac reveals updates and changes for 2018 iteration of its CT6

Cadillac’s CT6 full-size prestige-luxury sedan is still somewhat new. It has been offered to the global auto market for two model years – 2016 and 2017. But for those who think that the first generation of the CT6 (short for Cadillac Touring 6) might be getting a little older, the US premium carmaker is readying a plethora of updates and upgrades for its range-topping sedan.

According to a recently published order guide, Cadillac is giving the CT6 sedan quite a number of tweaks and updates that should allow it to become more competitive while still attracting customers and delivering a better user experience.

For instance, Cadillac has deleted four exterior colors from the 2018 CT6 color palette -- Dark Emerald Metallic; Moonstone Metallic; Red Passion Tint coat; and Phantom Gray Metallic. While the premium carmaker deleted these four exterior colors, it also added three new tones as it hopes to refresh how the new 2016 looks like. These new exterior colors -- Red Horizon Tintcoat; Satin Steel Metallic; and Stone Gray Metallic – are available for a fee. When the 2018 Cadillac CT6 is availed on a Platinum grade, the Stone Gray Metallic exterior color could be specified for no additional charge.

2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid gets ready to hit the market

American premium brand Cadillac has rejoined in the hybrid green race as it announces that it will commence sales of its first plug-in hybrid vehicle in spring 2017. This is not the first time that Cadillac has offered a plug-in hybrid luxury vehicle as the premium carmaker had the Cadillac ELR in its lineup starting 2014 model year. However, low sales of just over 2,400 units (2013 to 2015) had prompted Cadillac to shell out the ELR, which ended its production February this year.

Soon enough, Cadillac will be able to reenter the green auto market with the 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid, which can be purchased at $75,095, excluding $995 in destination charges. However, this amount could further be lowered once green incentives are applied.

Basically, the vehicle is a 2017 Cadillac CT6 but with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. According to Cadillac, the CT6 Plug-In Hybrid will be offered in the United States with equipment comparable to the current Premium Luxury model, which is next-to-top in the range. In addition, the 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid is provided with standard equipment that is offered as optional in the conventional CT6. These include Rear Seat Infotainment system, a Rear Camera mirror and Enhanced Night Vision.

Cadillac will offer its new flagship sedan – the CT6 rear-wheel-drive sedan – with the Bose Panaray system. Cadillac designed this new sound system exclusively for its new model, marking the debut of the latest line of Bose Automotive’s Advanced Technology Series sound systems. This system utilizes the technologies and design elements that are seen in Bose’s home entertainment and professional audio products.

The CT6 cabin will have 34 speakers, with nearly all of them having diameters of less than four inches. Last month in Detroit, General Motors CEO Mary Barra pointed out that this Bose system is a product of the joint development of innovations by the company and its supplier. Barra said that Cadillac has worked with Bose so that the technology can be integrated into the floor.

This system doesn’t need several stand-alone high-fi elements so it’s able to provide “great acoustics and greater efficiency.” In addition, the Bose system features articulated arrays, which are several small speakers positioned in alternating directions. Listeners will appreciate that its setup offers sound at a wider angle, resulting to a sound stage that’s more consistent and broader.

The all-new 2016 Cadillac CT6 will be unveiled late next year and as expected, the vehicle will arrive with plenty of new technologies. Today, GM revealed one interesting feature found on the upcoming CT6: a high-resolution streaming mirror. According to the company, the new streaming video mirror will improve the field of vision by 300 percent, or four times greater than a standard rearview mirror.

Thanks to the 1280 by 240-pixel TFT LCD display with 171 pixels per inch as well as an HD camera which was designed specifically to enhance the rear view lane width, the new mirror will definitely improve safety.

Still, if you will not like the new fancy mirror, you will be able to flip the toggle on the underside of the mirror and revert it to a traditional electrochromatic rearview mirror.

While Cadillac’s up-and-coming CT6 sedan will have “the world’s most advanced body structure,” – as per General Motors product development chief Mark Reuss – it will not boast of a radical change in the luxury brand’s styling direction. According to GM global design boss chief Ed Welburn, the CT6 – the first model to be named after Cadillac revamped its vehicle-naming setup – will be distinct from the current style sported by its existing lineup: angular lines and laser-like vertical head lamps and tail-lamps.

He told in an interview that the CT6 will be different and will stand out in the portfolio. However, Welburn was quick to point out that there would not be a real shift in styling direction with the CT6. He also dismissed expectations that the CT6 will have a design heavily influenced by the Elmiraj Concept unveiled at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Welburn remarked that the Elmiraj was more of an influence “on some other things we’re working on for Cadillac.” He admitted that the art and science theme for Cadillac vehicles has evolved since the current styling made its debut on the 2002 CTS midsize sedan.

Cadillac already confirmed its new flagship sedan, the CT6, and according to the latest reports we will see the vehicle in April at the 2015 New York Auto Show. The new model will also start Cadillac’s new naming scheme and promises to be sized and priced between the BMW 5-Series and 7-Series or the Audi A6 and A8.

The Cadillac CT6 will be inspired by the Elmiraj Concept, unveiled last year at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and according to the company it will be its lightest and most agile car. Its name is derived from the CTS and the “CT” will be used for Cadillac’s name models.

A more luxurious version of the CT6 is rumored to be the CT7 and will compete with the BMW 7-Series long wheelbase or the Mercedes-Benz S500 L. Ellinghaus admitted that the CT6 will be the top of the range, but that doesn’t mean that the vehicle will be the end of their aspiration.

Cadillac already announced that it will offer a top-end car called CT6, which will be built in late 2015 at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. During a conference last week, GM’s global product chief Mark Reuss confirmed the fact that Cadillac will offer a plug-in hybrid version of the CT6, which will return a fuel economy of at least 70 mpg.

In addition, Reuss said that the CT6 will use a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 petrol engine that will deliver around 400 hp. This model will use an 8-speed automatic transmission, the one offered also on the 2015 Corvette Stingray, as well as a stop-start system.

The lightweight structure of the upcoming CT6 will also help improve fuel economy and according to Reuss, the new car will be 8 inches longer than the current CTS but 53 pounds lighter.

Last week, Cadillac announced its plans to built a new top-end vehicle at GM's Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. Today, we found out that the new flagship sedan will be called the CT6 and will mark the overhaul of company’s naming scheme. The new vehicle will be positioned above the CTS as well as XTS sedans and according to Cadillac’s chief marketing officer Uwe Ellinghaus it will constitute a new approach to the prestige sedan.

Codenamed LTS, the rear-wheel-drive sedan will be launched in late 2015 and will be revealed in summer of 2015. Regarding the new name, the CT6 is derived from the CTS and according to the press release, “CT” will be used for car models, while name will reflect the size and place in the lineup.

Apparently, this new naming scheme will help buyers to understand each vehicle’s position in the Cadillac lineup. Still, Cadillac will only change the name of the vehicles only when it will redesign them, which means that we will probably see the ATS, CTS and XTS badges for several years.
