2019 Cadillac CT6: Caddy's flagship sedan bows out in style
Before production of the CT6 ends next June, Cadillac updated its flagship sedan with fresh styling, tech and a new base engine option for the 2019 model year.
To give the CT6 some more visual punch, the exterior receives new bumpers, grille, hood, light housings and trunk styled after the lovely Escala concept.
The interior of the CT6 benefits with a new shifter and trim finishes for 2019.
Bigger changes inside come in the form of a the latest Cue infotainment system with a 10.2-inch touchscreen and new rotary controller that replaces the old touch pad.
Cue runs navigation, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot and is both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capable.
Installed on this test car is an optional Bose Panaray audio system with 34 speakers. The system tacks an additional $3,700 onto the bottom line of the CT6.
For safety, the CT6's cameras have been upgraded to included a high-definition 360-degree camera and second-generation Rear Camera Mirror that now features zoom and tilt adjustments.
A new 2.0-liter engine making 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque powers rear-wheel-drive versions of the CT6. While it is down on power compared to the 265 horses and 295 pound-feet of the previous base engine, the new power plant has a wider peak torque band.
Working with the new four-cylinder is a 10-speed automatic transmission that replaces the previous eight-speed unit.
The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is on sale now and starts at $51,490, which includes $995 for destination.
