    The Cadillac CT6 Lives On In China And Has Been Updated With Super Cruise

    The Cadillac CT6 Lives On In China And Has Been Updated With Super Cruise

    The last Cadillac CT6 for the U.S. market rolled out of the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant earlier this year, but it’s still being built and sold in China.

    In fact, it’s been updated as the company has introduced two new versions featuring the automaker’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system.

    Both versions are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 233 hp (174 kW / 237 PS) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. It is connected to 10-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels.

    Of course, the big news is Super Cruise which uses LiDAR map data and GPS information to precisely pinpoint the car’s location. On top of that, the vehicle with an assortment of cameras and radar sensors.

    This brings me great sadness. I loved that car.

    Not surprised, supply meet demand. Cadillac sells more in China now than US. I imagine CT6 sales in China dwarf US. US cadillac sales are almost all SUV/CUV.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see the CT6 get imported to the US after the new interior update and once it’s financially possible.

    If it weren't for the trade war with China, GM would just import the CT6.

    Trade war or no trade war...American sentiment towards Chinese products is at probably an all time low. It wouldn't have done well.

    I wish GM would've picked another place to lay their EV roots...D'ham should've been spitting out properly done XT6s and CT6s off Omega, while doing some sort of niche Chevy performance model as well.

    Its like GM is zapping their balls in the microwave in hopes of not impregnating anyone in 2020 with hopes that their sperm returns in 2023 ready to rumble. They're going to find that people were tired of the impotent GM and moved on by the time they get their mojo back.

    There's talk over at the Authority of Lansing going EV starting around 2024:

    gm authority dot com/blog/2020/07/general-motors-may-begin-building-evs-at-lansing-grand-river-plant-by-2024/

    They current make the alpha cars: Camaro/CT4/CT5. Could this mean an EV Camaro is coming at that point? Maybe some sort of Caddy EV sedan to replace CT4/CT5? Or not. Don't know. Maybe an EV CT6 replacement of some kind?

    We know a coupe is in the works. With the 3 series sized sedan coming soon from BMW to go along side the model 3 we can only hope a small or mid sized sedan is coming.

    I would, wasn't the 2L discontinued in the US? And the PHEV 2L US version was always made in China and sales were abysmal. The 2L is all that is being made in China due to displacement taxes.

    Thanks but what does A1XC(2) mean? “SOP” means something like “that’s all folks”? Sorry I’m not in the biz.

    Meanwhile, BMW will apparently sell both EV and ICE 5/7 series, Benz/Audi doing EV stuff too of course, the next few years are going to be interesting.

    Such a classic GM move. They finally make the car pretty much what it should have been in the first place, and then they kill it, at least in North America.
