Cadillac is preparing to unveil its Omega-based CT6 full-size flagship sometime next year, which means the luxury sedan’s development is now in full swing. It seems spy photographers have been seeing CT6 prototypes everywhere as of late, with the most recent car being spotted somewhere in the Midwest by Carscoops reader Brett Borgard.
These photos, like others we’ve seen, show a heavily camouflaged CT6 with black cladding covering the front, rear and sides of the car. This car has a pair of model-exclusive Cadillac wheels and quad exhaust tips, two elements which have also been spotted on other CT6s. We’ve been waiting patiently for the CT6 to shed some of its camo, but so far, we’ve had no luck.
General Motors has been fairly transparent about the CT6. They’ve said the sedan will use the company’s new mixed material body structure build process, which combines high and regular strength steel, aluminium and steel stampings to build a frame with 20 fewer parts that is much lighter. As a result, the CT6 will weigh 53 lbs less than the mid-size CTS on the road today.
In addition to being extremely light, the CT6 will also utilize an all-new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that will be the most powerful in the segment. In some applications, this motor will be combined with a hybrid system, allowing the big full-sizer to return around 70 MPGe. It will also be the first car to introduce GM’s ‘Super Cruise’ technology, which will allow the car to keep a lane, brake and control its speed autonomously in highway driving situations.
