The 2016 Cadillac CT6 will start at $54,490. That much gets you the 2.0-liter Turbo four-cylinder LTG engine mated to the 8-speed automatic 8L45 transmission. The price jumps to $56,490 should buyers upgrade to the more powerful LGX 3.6-liter V6 with all-wheel drive, and rises to $65,390 for the new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 LGW with all-wheel drive. Each price includes the $995 destination fee. Each engine is paired exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the CT6 PHEV will join the petrol-powered sedan later on in the model year.
Cadillac has not yet provided specific details on specific equipment and features adorning each price point and trim level, but did say that a broad range of high-technology systems and luxury amenities — such as the Rear Camera Mirror, Enhanced Night Vision technology and a 34-speaker Bose Panaray audio system — presents a wide range of options and price points to attract new buyers. The brand did, however, state that the fully-loaded 2016 CT6 Platinum will ring in at a healthy $84,460.
The pricing strategy creates a strategic gap between the 2016 Cadillac CTS, which starts at $46,430, but also represents an absolute bargain compared to many of the CT6’s German-born competitors. And it also seems to leave plenty of room for another Cadillac above the CT6 — be it the CT7 or the CT8 — to show up sooner, rather than later.
The Omega-platformed CT6 will arrive at dealers next March, and order books are now open.
