The CT6-V rolled out in 2019 with a few bumps along the way. Cadillac initially launched the car as the CT6 V-Sport, but later changed the name to CT6-V. The confusion didn’t stop the car from selling like crazy, though, as the company sold every one it made.
Now in its second year, the car will retain the Blackwing twin-turbo V8 that resided under the hood of the original model. The 4.2-liter powerplant creates 550 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. Each engine is hand-made at the GM factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Like other Cadillac V Cars, the CT6-V will receive a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The CT6-V is visually different than its standard CT6 counterpart, in that it has larger wheels, a black mesh sport grille, and a more aggressive stance. Inside, we’ll see plenty of carbon fiber trim, soft leather over sport seats, and Cadillac’s fancy driver-assist system. Called Super Cruise, it allows drivers to remove hands from the steering wheel while the car pilots itself for periods of time on select highways in the United States.
The CT6-V will compete against the BMW M3/M4 and Alfa Romeo Giulia. We don’t have pricing details for the new car yet but should know more as we get closer to the early-2020 release date.
