The Cadillac CT6 is in for a refresh in the near future, and as expected, it will wear plenty of design inspiration from the Escala concept car. New spy shots captured the car testing in Colorado, though it still wore plenty of camouflage.
However, it’s easy to see the grille is very Escala-like, even with the camo doing its best to distort the real design. The headlights also feature a more horizontal look under the camouflage with LED accents trailing in a vertical fashion—again, very Escala. The look will eventually make its way to all new Cadillacs with the XT4 poised to be the first.
It’s possible Cadillac may introduce its highly anticipated 4.2-liter DOHC twin-turbo V8 engine when the car does eventually bow, potentially for the 2019 model year. We know the brand has been hard at work on a new powertrain, but we don’t have any other details aside from the nugget of information.
Do expect the plug-in hybrid to return as well, possibly with greater range.
