2024 Cadillac CT6.
Last Updated: May 11, 2023

We already know GM has developed a second-generation Cadillac CT6 sedan. Although that new model will not make it to the IUS and will only be sold in China.

As usual with most ICE models these days, it is heavily based on the previous generation. Although exterior and interior designs will be all new.

Seems like a nice update. And once again makes one wish this was still on sale here in the US.

I know that Caddy will be all-EV in the US/Canada moving forward, but that's not necessarily the case in China.

We've obviously seen this updated CT6, but there is also a new ICE-only GT4 (curious name) that's been leaked in multiple spots online; including here on GMI.

Point is that while we have been told that legacy ICE vehicles here in the US will get refreshed and disappear (XT4, XT5, XT6, CT4, CT5 -- and possibly the Escalade in it's current form), the Chinese market is actually adding new ICE-powered vehicles like this bespoke-seeming GT4.

That's curious, speaks to Caddy's appeal in some foreign markets, and simultaneously seems to undercut GM's stated desire to move the Wreath and Crest brand to and EV-only range. After all, this is a global market and the internet makes every markets' products accessible to view, everywhere.

There's no shot that the GT4 will make it to the US, but could the brass be hedging their bets?

My initial reaction to this picture was "not loving it", but on looking closer I think the camera lens is warping the back end - I'll hold off judgement until I see more pictures.

IF we get the updated CT4/5 and importing from China becomes profitable with updated policies I can see this brought back.
Nice looking car.

I guess importing from China would be a non-starter LOL.

It is absolutely the case everywhere. Cadillac will be a BEV only brand.

China's emissions regulations are tougher than California's. The EU's tougher still.

GT4 is a reskinned/refreshed XT4. Not bespoke not all knew.

No hedging. After Europe,US-Canada, and China go full EV Cadillac will not design new ICE Cadillacs for Latin America, Middle East, Non-China Asia and Africa.

China's premium auto market is much bigger than the USA's. So is the low end. America's middle priced car market is still bigger than China's.

It will make sense to keep selling current tech ICE powertrains in luxury sedans and CUVs for another 5-15 years in China. But even in China it is a shrinking market.

I spent a wonderful weekend at the local Cadillac season opening (pictures coming soon) with this beautiful beast and other Cadillacs. The Chinese-only CT6 makes me wanna cry. No more crappy product decisions should go together with no more crappy cars dear Marry!

In a perfect world I’d find a way to get a new CT6 over here stateside and also find a way to “transplant” a Blackwing engine in it too.

They should sell this car in North America, even if they can only realistically export a limited number of them.

I wonder what will happen to those cars (and the Lansing Grand River assembly plant) now that the Camaro is being discontinued by next year.

Since Cadillac is supposed to go all EV by 2030, I assume GM’s current plan is to replace the CT4/CT5 with EVs. However, it’s possible that deadline might have to be delayed, and if that happens, will GM keep the CT4/CT5 in production? are those cars profitable enough to justify getting another generation? sales are increasing, but they still don’t sell too many of them.

It's got hints of a Jaguar XJ, especially the rear side quarter, with a few more angles.

It does, but overall looks odd with an upright windshield & grill and the back so swept - but I think a lot of what looks odd to me is camera related, I'm thinking they'd not make huge changes to the overall profile from the first gen.

Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong (anyone) but I almost want to say I read a while back that an EV is slotting under Celestiq and a single vehicle will replace both the CT4/5 in EV form as well.
Is this China only?

The profile and the DLO remind me of the Impala.

I'm personally not a fan of Cadillac's latest front-ends - busy and generic.

I don’t like the kick up on the opera window. It does remind me of the departed Impala. I don’t see generic though. Cadillac’s lighting and front ends as a whole don’t look like anything else on the road.

@Juche Yes. No other market is getting the new CT6.

Me too.
I got a used CT6 as a loaner when my Caddy dealer had no new cars and really liked it.

Good or bad has nothing to do with it. The car is supposed to be a Cadillac, not an Impala. You are what you aspire to be. If the car is a Cadillac, then it should not invoke Impala styling cues.
