We finally have an idea of how many Cadillac CT6-Vs rolled off the production line.
It's been a long wait for the Cadillac CT6-V amid delays, but customer deliveries of the high-performance luxury sedan finally started in the last quarter of 2019, while 2020 model deliveries are currently underway.
We already knew the Cadillac CT6-V will have a very limited production run, but Cadillac has kept the specific production count a closely guarded secret. However, Cadillac Society has learned that around 1,500 units of Cadillac CT6 models packing GM's 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 Blackwing engine will be produced before the entire CT6 lineup is discontinued this month.
The 1,500 units account for both the CT6 Platinum and CT6-V for the 2019 and 2020 model years. In the CT6 Platinum, the 4.2-liter V8 has an output of 500 horsepower and 574 lb-ft of torque, while the range-topping CT6-V, which is sold exclusively in the US and Canada, increases the output to 550 hp and 640 lb-ft of torque.
Breaking these figures down, production of the 2019 CT6-V started with 275 units, which sold out in just two hours. The second batch of around 600 CT6 models with the Blackwing engine were then made available, most of which were CT6-Vs according to Cadillac spokesperson, Stefan Cross. This means around 875 CT6 units equipped with the Blackwing engine were made for the 2019 model year. 825 of those were for the US market while the remaining 50 were allocated for Canada.
For the 2020 model year, only around 600 CT6 models with the Blackwing engine are being produced, most of which will be CT6-V models. Only around 25 units are being allocated for Canada, while the remaining 575 will be delivered to US customers.
Now that we know roughly how many CT6-V models are being made, the performance sedan will almost certainly become a collectors car in the future since Cadillac is discontinuing the CT6in North America by the end of January 2020. Pricing for the Cadillac CT6-V starts at $91,795, but we expect it to appreciate in value so it could be a very wise investment for those who were lucky enough to snap one up.
