4 Important Things To Know About The 2019 Cadillac CT6 V-Sport

The Cadillac CT6 was specifically designed to go against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the BMW 7 Series, and the Audi A8, but that was back in 2015. Fast-forward today, the 2019 Cadillac CT6 V-Sport will be offering a more powerful variant of the vehicle, thanks to its brand-new V-8 engine.

The V-Sport gets all the new and cool features, including some that are borrowed from the Escala, though the main highlight remains to be the V-8 engine it got under the hood.

1. Exterior

The concept design of the 2019 Cadillac CT6 V-Sport is based on the Escala, so needless to say, the new Cadillac looks completely different from the mid-cycle upgrade. In the front, there’s a new grille that’s almost similar to the Escala, thanks to the upper chrome trim. There’s also a sportier mesh with a honeycomb-like design that replaced the regular CT6 grille with horizontal slats.

Other things to take notice of in the new Cadillac’s overall look are the new headlamps and taillights, the black window trim, the decklid spoiler, a revised bumper, and the sportier side skirts.

2. Interior

Cadillac released two photos of the interior of the 2019 Cadillac CT6 V-Sport, and we must say we’re pretty impressed. What we can gleam is that it will have upholstered leather seating and carbon fiber trim on the dashboard. We’re expecting there’ll be the V-Sport badge on the floor mats and the door sills, but we’re still not sure about that.

The V-Sport is using an upgraded infotainment system with smartphone-like features and a more intuitive interface. There’s also a new rotary controller, new rear camera mirror, a 10-inch display screen, and hands-free super cruise.

3. Drivetrain

As mentioned above, the 2019 Cadillac CT6 V-Sport will be packed with the all-new V-8 engine that produces 550 horsepower and a whopping 627 pound-feet of torque. It will come with an AWD as standard or you can opt for a 10-speed automatic transmission. There’s also the Brembo braking system and performance-optimized track mode.

4. Prices

Cadillac has yet to announce the price for the 2019 Cadillac CT6 V-Sport, but it’s safe to assume that it will be the most expensive car in the lineup. The price tag could go as high as $100,000 before options.

Cadillac CT6 With Super Cruise Sells For $71,300

Looking for an autonomous driving car? The top-end Cadillac CT6 that has been fitted with the Super Cruise autonomous driving system will sell for about $71,300, the same price tag that the Tesla Model S with similar technology is gunning for.

Beginning this fall, the Super Cruise autonomous driving system will charge $5,000 for anyone who wants to opt for it in the Cadillac CT6 Premium Luxury trim, Uwe Ellinghaus, Cadillar’s chief marketing officer, said. The price tag will be an add-on to the CT6’s $66,290, shipping included.

Those with $85,290, including shipping, to spare can have the package on the top-end CT6 Platinum model. The Super Cruise will be standard on that trim model, which had a $500 increase from the 2017 model year but the same with the 2018 pricing.

The Super Cruise is part of the mid-model-year addition that Cadillac dubbed as “2018i.” Originally, it was expected to charge $2,500 for two models, but Cadillac has since changed the pricing options. Ellinghaus said that it’s pertinent for Cadillac to make Super Cruise standard on the top-level CT6 because it’s still a new technology. Basically, this is a “trial” for Cadillac owners who may still not know they want what the system has to offer.

He added that the Super Cruise is the kind of system you “will never want to give it up” after trying it. Ellinghaus likened it with the head-up displays.

To make it more accessible to customers, Cadillac is topping its more than 900 dealers to have the Super Cruise-equipped CT6 models in their showrooms.

The Super Cruise includes Driver’s Awareness and Convenience and Enhanced Vision and Comfort packages. Aside from controlling the steering, braking, and acceleration in certain situations, as well as allowing the drivers to take their hands off the steering wheel and feet off the pedals while driving, the system added a safety measure to monitor facial cues and pupils. The system will be able to sense when the driver is either sleeping or not paying attention. It can then send alerts through audio warnings and a light bar on the steering wheel.
