    The CT8 will launch sometime AFTER 2020. It will be bigger, have new, groundbreaking technologies, another V8 choice, and will be much, more expensive than the CT6. The one that may arrive BEFORE 2020 would be the CT7.

    The CT6 WILL BE THE CURRENT FLAGSHIP when it goes on sale. It will be so until the CT7 arrives!

    I remember being told, when I ask about the pricing for the 1st Cadillac to have a V8 that wasn't a "V" series, somewhere below $110,000 for the BASE model, but no pricing had been set.

    Engelman your killing me......not after 2020.......the CT8 will be a sedan and the CT7 will be a coupe...the sedans should arrive first........AFTER 2020 is TOO LATE......you probably think the CT7 would be a lager more stylish sedan above the CT6 and the CT8 being a RR, bluntly competer.....but GM said that the CT8 is going to be a sedan and the CT7 a coupe....so I would see the CT8 arriving before the CT7.

    Makes me think the next CT6 should go with a fast Wraith-style roofline but keep the large size. Well, I'd already have loved that for a CTS replacement, but whatever.

    They need to have something that is a strong alternative to an A7/6GC/CLS type products while doing their own thing. So I think Wraith-rooflined CT6 with a fantastic interior, PHEV powertrains, etc, would be unique but also desirable and modern. Doing a conventional large sedan is somewhat limiting in that Cadillac will continue to have a market for it, but they'll need to keep the concept modern.

    Think MB S600 Pullman when you think of the CT8. It will not arrive before 2020. The XTS will probably be gone by 2019, or definitely after the ATS / CTS replacements land.

    I emagine the CT8 will arrive early 2020 as a 20 modal year......just like the CT6 arriving early 2016 as a 16.

    Sorry, but Cadillac has other segments it desperately needs to fill, and the stockholders want a bigger product portfolio. I have seen 2 variants of what could possibly be the CT7. They were both Coupes, and appeared to be under development. This was last spring, it was not up close, there was no comment (it is forbidden to discuss future product) and absolutely no pics allowed.

    I am not saying anything but what I saw, nothing is for sure , or certain. These vehicles may never see production.

    what kind of BS is this.......the CT6 been in development since 2012 and the Omega platform since 2010.......I figure it takes longer to develop a whole new platform than the develop a car on an existing platform.........for a new platform 6 years.........for a new car 4 years.......if they start development on the CT8 now or next year......it could arrive for 2020.

    2019 Cadillac CTS 3.6

    Re: Cadillac CT6 Really not as Inexpensive as Some May Think

    So basically, they're going to be dicking around until like 2023 when the real flagship arrives, and even before then, both the ATS and CTS MCEs and CTx replacements are delayed, so we're going to be stuck with the current Alpha cars for quite some time, and with no clear Cadillac flagship in sight, only vaporware that's due in the 2020s.

    Great.

    Those CUVs they're talking about can't get here soon enough.
    Current:

    2019 Cadillac CTS 3.6 Luxury AWD

    Well since you bring it up, Cadillac should've by now been in the process of designing a modular platform, but with the costs of Alpha and Omega that's probably not gonna happen anytime soon.

    We'll have an ATS replacement and CTS replacement before 2023. The XTS discontinuation, ATS replacement, and CTS replacements all happen before then based on what's been discussed here.

    Seriously nothing Cadillac has done suggests the is the case. For the sake of arguing... Which Caddy are rollin in right now, or planning on buying.? If the Elmiraj were out right now... Would u have one in your garage, or would u just be happy to see it in the show room?
