Although the world had their first look at the 2016 Cadillac CT6 this past April at the 2015 New York Auto Show, the Chinese market has yet to be graced with their locally-produced production car.
In fact, GM-Shanghai decided to unveil the 2016 CT6 plug-in hybrid before the petrol-powered versions showed face. But, Car News China has spotted the production car during setup at the 2015 Chengdu Auto Show.
As expected, it looks identical to the 2016 CT6 for the U.S. market, with the only major difference being the trim and Shanghai-GM badges. Curiously, Cadillac has badged the car “40T,” which has been assumed to refer to the car’s 400 hp from its LGW 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. But, the license plate frame reads “3.0 TT.” Possibly a minor goof in details, but not the best way to unveil the brand’s latest stop-gap flagship.
Cadillac hopes the larger and more charge 2016 CT6 will springboard sales of the brand, which has seen minimal growth in a booming luxury market.
