Although this is a brand new model from Cadillac, it looks like company already have plans for the future models that will come in next few years. This is a completely new, full-size luxury sedan, a new pride of Cadillac. It was presented last year, at the New York Auto Show. Finally, this new sedan is available since January, as 2016 year model. Although it is a completely new model, it looks like company prepared some specific novelties for next two years. When it is about 2018 Cadillac CT6, there are several reports that it will come in new, performance variant, equipped with powerul V8 engine.
2018 Cadillac CT6 under the hood
At this moment, we have three engines in offer for this luxury sedan, and 2018 Cadillac CT6 will come with one more. Just like on the current model, we will see three familiar units offered. The first one is a 2.0 liters four-cylinder turbocharged engien, which is good for 265 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Also, there are two six-cylinder units in offer. The first one is 3.6 liter V6, which has 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque, while the other one is GM’s new 3.0 liter turbo engine, which has magnificent power of around 400 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque.

For the 2018 Cadillac CT6 model, we will probably see another engine in offer. It will be a hi-performance variant, which will probably come with GM’s new 4.2 liter V8 engine. Exact spects for this engine are still unknown. It is expected that this variant will be available not only with automatic, but also with manual tranmission.
2018 Cadillac CT6 features
Since 2018 Cadillac CT6 will come in third year of production, we doubt that company will offer some bigger changes. We believe that it will come with the pretty much same characteristics as 2016, which came completely new this January. It will stay one of the most competitive models in the class, where are vehicles like BMW 7 Series, Mercedes S-Class, Lexus LS etc. Compared to these models, 2018 Cadillac CT6 will come with a little bit lower price, since it is U.S. productio, compared to these models. However, this doesn’t mean that we will see less eqipment. The 2018 CT6 will come with plenty of luxury features, like 34-speaker premium audio system, for example.
2018 Cadillac CT6 release date and price
The 2018 Cadillac CT6 is expected to come somewhere in the late 2017. Price will be same as for the current model, which starts around 55.000 dollars.
