    Cadillac CT6 Pricing Changing Drastically For 2020 Model Year

    Its more expensive with fewer choices but makes up for it with additional content.

    Cadillac feels lost. In the last year, the luxury brand has ousted its CEO, said it'd cut the CT6 from its lineup because sedans are bad now, raised CT6-V pricing, announced it'd lead GM's electric vehicle efforts, extended CT6 production by six months because sedans are good again sort of, rejiggered its V-Series brand down market, and announced hotter V-Series CT4 and CT5 sedans in the future. That's a rollercoaster ride Cedar Point would be happy to have. All those ups and downs lead us to today where Cadillac is raising prices for the CT6 for the 2020 model year.

    According to Cars Direct, Cadillac is trimming trims and engines, but not price. The brand will offer three trim choices, down from seven: Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum. Gone are the CT6's turbocharged 2.0- and 3.0-liter turbocharged engines leaving the 3.6-liter V6 and twin-turbocharged 4.2-liter V8 as the only two options. All three trims get a price bump; however, Cadillac is offering more content for the money.

    Full article available at link.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    You'd think they'd use a photo of the latest CT6.

    Cadillac offered 7 trim levels?

    Is the CT6 officially dead or not?

    Wasn't it something like:

    2.0T Luxury
    3.6L Luxury
    3.6L Premium Luxury
    3.6L Platinum
    3.0TT Luxury
    3.0TT Premium Luxury
    3.0TT Platinum

    ???

    The plug-in fit somewhere in there too. Maybe I'm wrong but it did look something similar and a bit much when looking at the build on the website a few years ago.

    This is actually positive.. and the price change? Rightfully so.

    "going from $63,590 for 2019 to $75,490 in 2020. However, Cadillac packs it with a ton of new content that makes it $2,500 cheaper than a similarly-equipped 2019 model... The CT6 Platinum, with the twin-turbo 4.2-liter Blackwing V8, will get a $700 price jump to $97,490. Cadillac makes the once optional $700 20-inch Platinum-grade wheels for 2019 not so optional for 2020."

    Now.. if they add in a more extensive color palette to truly compete with the others.. there is absolutely zero reason why this will not be on par and comparable to them.

    Why are they keeping the 3.6 V6? I was pricing all the Cs yesterday and concluded a version with the 3.0 TT V6 is what I want. I would have considered a CT6 sport with the 3.0 TT V6 due to larger interior volume warranting a higher price. Now, I guess my choice is the CT5. IMO, the best Cadillac should only have the best engines. It is not going to bother me that much, but with others, it might. Are you looking to purchase a Blackwing? Nice ride, if you do.

    Off topic.

    IMO, GM suffers from not rationalizing their powertrains.

    If I ran the company, there would be a plant cranking out turbo I6 engines - one version as the base engine for all of their trucks and another version solely for Cadillac. An I6 is inherently smooth and, because the more humble version goes into hundreds of thousand of units, capital cost due to shared tooling can leveraged maximally. A base Cadillac would be offered with the I6. Want more power? Then some version of the venerable small block would be offered as a "Legacy" edition. In longitudinal RWD platforms, an I6 and V8 work well together as options. I am not saying the Blackwing V8 is a bad engine. No, it probably kicks a lot of ass. But from a capital cost standpoint, I feel a great I6 would have been able to burnish image in many more units sold. The ATS? Offer a 2.5 liter I6 as base. Trucks? Offer a large displacement I6 with a cast iron block. And note that a legacy option for the trucks would be a version of the venerable small block. Not only would tooling be maximally used, engineers would have fewer ICE designs to tweak - and GM has and does a great job tweaking its OHV V8. My rant for the day

    I can see this doing the exact opposite for Cadillac and actually convincing buyers not to buy it. The very Tim Cadillac is trying to encourage buyers, they go do the opposite with exclusive pricing

    It could be perception though as this move simply culling the trim and engine options that weren’t selling well anyway while giving high series buyers more to cheer about

    In your theoretical scenario, you should easily be able to build I4’s on the same line as the I6 just like other manufacturers. Modularity helps here. You could even keep the bore spacing so no need for a small displacement I6.

    Don't know for the life of me why the 3.0TT was discontinued in this car. It's still going to be used for the CT5. 3.0 and Blackwing in CT6 would have further rid the car and its image from GM corporate parts sharing.

    You have to be an old person to spend this much for a car equipped with a NA 3.6L V6. That barely qualifies as a base engine at Lincoln. I guess this is their new XTS.
