Yesterday Cadillac revealed its new full-size sedan will be called CT6 and will introduce the brand’s new naming convention when it goes on sale late next year. Whether you’re a fan of the CT6 name or not (it’s arguably better than the original LTS name), you’ll probably like the car it’s attached to, a prototype version of which was recently spotted by a Jalopnik reader undergoing high altitude testing.
The photos don’t show us too much on the CT6 that we didn’t already know, but are taken closer up than some of the other spy shots of the car we’ve seen. The basic outline of the grille can be made out and if you look closely, the waterfall-style LED lights up front can also be seen peeking through the camo. Jalopnik notes there is a large step on the hood, too, which rakes back downwards towards the windshield.
As we know, this car will ride on GM’s new Omega full-size rear-wheel drive platform. There is no word on powertrain options, however the twin turbocharged LF3 V6 from the Cadillac CTS Vsport has already been heard on video in the car and seems like the most likely candidate. Expect a V8 to compete with competitors like the Mercedes-Benz S500 and maybe even an eco-friendly hybrid model as well.
Check out the photos here and let us know how you think the CT6 is shaping up in the comments.
