    Cadillac CT6-V Deliveries Delayed Over Emissions

    Cadillac CT6-V Deliveries Delayed Over Emissions
    Cadillacsociety
    9/1/2019
    The Cadillac CT6 V-Sport was announced in March of 2018. In September of that year, the model was renamed to Cadillac CT6-V. Order books opened in January of 2019, and all 275 pre-order units were quickly claimed. In response, Cadillac upped production capacity and added $4,000 to the price, but again, the CT6-V quickly sold out. But despite the fanfare and rabid demand, not one unit of the Cadillac CT6-V has been delivered thus far.Cadillac Society has now learned the reason behind the delay.

    Sources familiar with the matter told Cadillac Society that emissions-related setbacks delayed the CT6-V from shipping on schedule.
    In July, Cadillac representatives told Cadillac Society that the CT6-V would begin shipping to dealers “soon.”

    “Earlier in the year, we informed customers who purchased the CT6-V that due to our commitment to quality and fine detail, their vehicle is taking a little longer than expected,” Cadillac spokesperson, Stefan Cross, told Cadillac Society. “We followed up with these customers again recently, providing an update on the progress of their vehicle along with a token of our gratitude for their patience.”

    But, as we write this on the last day of August, not a single unit of the Cadillac CT6-V has been delivered to dealers or customers. The same rings true for other CT6 models the twin-turbo 4.2L V8 Blackwing engine; besides the CT6-V, the engine is also available in the CT6 Platinum. Dealers with orders across the U.S. currently see the CT6-V and CT6 4.2L TT Platinum as being “in transit”.

    It comes as no surprise that Cadillac was reluctant to spill the beans on the delay behind getting the CT6-V into customers’ hands. The vehicle is critical to the luxury automaker’s perception, as it offers the classic Cadillac combination of large-luxury-sedan style stuffed and V8 power.

    The good news is that the Cadillac CT6-V emissions issue has now resolved, and the model is due to arrive at dealers very, very soon. The vehicle will be available in the United States, but will not be available available in China. Availability for Canada, Mexico, the Middle East and Europe has not been announced as of this writing.

    It wouldn't have been delayed if they went with the engine that had the same weight but made more horsepower and torque.

    Unlike with Northstar, there's no demand problem with Blackwing. It's going to be ok.

    Who said anything about a demand problem? the Northstar wasn't taken out of production because of a lack of demand for the engine but because it was an old engine with those limitations built into the engine. Only pointing out that there was another engine that they could have used which makes even more horsepower and torque and the LT4 with twin turbos and slightly less boost then the Blackwing V-8 built by LPE made around 1,100BHP. a CT6V packing 1,100BHP? that would be a really fun and insane car which won't happen anymore as the blackwing engine just can't do that at those boost levels.

    The competition isn't the LT4, we all know it's good.

    The competition is the engines in German luxury cars. It looks to have the power to take 'em on.

    Blackwing 4.2 TTV8 has 550 hp, 627 tq
    BMW 4.4 TTV8 has 600 hp, 553 tq
    Mercedes 5.5 TTV8 has 571 hp, 664 tq

    Pretty impressive... Blackwing nearly matches the much larger Mercedes engine.
    And the CT6 is quite a bit lighter than the German cars.

    There was a few month delay on a brand new engine for a niche luxury sedan. Big deal.

    Similar power in a lighter car. They're all about the same. Under 4 second cars.

    What's the biggest difference? CT6-V is $50K less.

    I thought the CT6 competed with the E/5 Series and not the S/7 series...anyway, if it were my $$$ I'd just get the real deal and lease a S63 over buying a $100k stillborn pretender.
