2020 Cadillac CT6 Discontinues Sport Trim Level
When Cadillac refreshed the CT6 lineup for the 2019 model year, it introduced a new Sport trim level in accordance with its latest Y trim strategy. With one branch dedicated to sport/performance and the other dedicated to comfort/luxury, the Cadillac CT6 Sport took up a position along the former branch as a stepping stone to the CT6 V-Sport (later renamed to CT6-V). Now, however, with the 2020 model year changeover, the Cadillac CT6 Sport model is being discontinued.
With the departure of the Cadillac CT6 Sport, the remaining trim levels include the base-level Luxury, followed by Premium Luxury, Platinum, and the high-powered CT6-V.Previously, the Cadillac CT6 Sport offered a unique trim-specific grille with a high-gloss black mesh and bright galvano surround. The front fascia was also equipped with a body-color front splitter, while the profile received black window liners (as compared to the chrome treatment seen on the other trims). Sport-specific 19-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels with an Ultra Bright Machined/Midnight Silver finish were found in the corners. The rear end wrapped it up with a body-color fascia extension.
Under the hood, the Cadillac CT6 Sport cradled the 3.0L Twin-Turbo V6 engine (production code LGW), which delivered 404 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. That engine is also going away for the 2020 CT6.According to Cadillac representative Stefan Cross, the discontinuation of the Cadillac CT6 Sport enables the automaker to add new standard content elsewhere in the lineup.
