    If U missed the first 275 Cadillac CT6-Vs, Be Prepared to pay an extra $4000

    he 550 hp CT6-V isn't dead yet but will now cost you a lot more than it did before. Cadillac blew through the car's initial 275 pre-orders so quickly that the automaker is planning a "second installment" in order to meet demand. However, order guides reveal the brand is also increasing pricing by $4,000.

    When Cadillac began taking orders in January, the car had an MSRP of $88,790 including destination. Effective this month, Cadillac has raised sticker pricing to $92,790, which equates to a $4,000 price increase with no changes in standard equipment.

    For most buyers, this likely means Cadillac's Blackwing V8 is moving even further out of reach. As we reported last month, the brand is adding a detuned 500 hp version in the range-topping Platinum grade for the steep price of $96,790.

    Whichever flavor of the brand's new V8 you intend to buy, plan on spending over $90k.

    With the latest change, the difference in price between the V and Platinum grade V8 has been cut in half from $8,000 to $4,000. At the same time, the brand has widened the gap in price with the $87,990 CTS-V to $4,800 (from a mere $800).

    In a communication sent to dealers, the brand says early customers "were rewarded with a special introductory offer by quickly raising their hand." However, some buyers may not appreciate what may be perceived as a $4,000 penalty for being late to the party.

    I'm still getting one... Screw it. I snoozed... well U know the saying. Compared to the Ms and the AMGs still a helluva bargain, and better looking to boot. An M760 costs almost $160K, the 2019 BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive.. $140K.

    That's a cool pic of the CT6!

    I suspect GM's pricing actions will not be popular on GMI, however, Cadillac is creating desirability which is what we've all wanted them to. Why is GM creating desirability? So that they can raise prices to achieve the big profits the Germans do. So by our wishing for Cadillac to create desirability we are also blessing price increases.

    . Screw what GMI'ers think of the price.

    Cadillac needs to price itself accordingly simple and plain The brand is luxury and in no way should be confused with bargain. It just doesn't make sense and I've been saying it since the ct6 debuted that once it had a V-8 there is absolutely no reason why it should not go price for Price up against the 7 Series Audi A8 or even the S-class.

    So...is it dying or is it not dying? Keep reading and hearing "dead yet" leaving me to believe that it is dying soon.

    CT6 production in the U.S. will continue until at least January 2020, and CT6 production in China will continue well past that.

    I think its staying.. but I'm a person who thrives on the positive outlook. The CT6 will inevitably be changing tho.. it is MY 4 so I would expect that the powers that be can always retire the number and call it CT7 or 8.. which would be more befitting of the class. A "6" really should have been a coupe considering the naming scheme was devised to emulate BMW's I thought

    So the first 275 that bought something based on its super-low volume exclusivity, are left with the consolations that, they paid less than all the others?

    I would take it as a consolation that they were rewarded for jumping on board before anyone else. I see what your condescending tone is trying to drum up. Go figure.

    I'll stay here and praise that gorgeous AWD CT6-V which will have 850nm slapped across the back "in spirit" (since its a V)

    and U Eddie... Get back over to the Utility Van tread so U can be among those praising a Ford Transit for getting a new engine and AWD.. Enthusiasts indeed

    That car is awesome indeed! What am I missing from the equation though, the 550HP will be $92.7K and the 500HP will be $96.7K? There must be more to it than that like trim or options right?

    I think so. The 500HP is platinum trim. The 550HP is probably premium lux sport trim. Article said "starting at". I still would rather have a coupe, but the odds are so low I may go with one of these. I also noticed for 2019 on the caddy website, the 2L engine is gone. Only 3.6 and 3.0TT are shown. I've also been watching my local dealer's inventory. They are not selling alot of them with only 2-6 in stock at any one time, but the stock is rotating pretty rapidly. As an example they have two on their site at the moment, with one in transit. They have 150 of XT5's and 34 XTS as a comparison.
