Cadillac Dropping 2.0 from CT6?

A new report says that if you’re looking to get the smallest engine in the Cadillac CT6, you might already be too late. The 2.0L turbo four seems to be gone from your list of choices from the big sedan.

Cadillac Society says that they haven’t received confirmation from GM about it, but that they have information from dealers. That info shows that the 2.0L turbo four, GM production code LSY, is no longer available for 2019. The smaller engine is gone from the Cadillac website configurator as well, and that’s as good an indication as any that the CT6 is now the CT-V6 only. Ok, fine, except for a handful of Blackwings, but that wrecks our clever wordplay. And it’s the CT6-V, so we’re standing by it.

With the loss of the 237 hp and 258 lb-ft turbo four, the remaining engines for 2019 are the 3.6L V6 that makes 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque and the twin-turbo 3.0 that makes 404 and 400 respectively. And, of course, the 4.2L Blackwing V8 that is rated for 500 hp and 574 lb-ft.

Because the only rear-drive CT6s were the four-pot, that means that the CT6 is all-wheel drive only as of now. All the current engines get a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
