Cadillac CT6 sales decreased 13 percent in the third quarter and 10 percent in the first nine months of 2018. The results aren’t too surprising given the ongoing market shift to crossovers from sedans. And in what could be an effort to combat slumping sedan sales, Cadillac has introduced several rather attractive October 2018 incentive offers for the large CT6 sedan.
The nationwide Cadillac incentives on the 2018 CT6 for October 2018 are as follows:
- For GM owners or lessees:
- $3,000 toward the purchase of a new CT6
- For non-GM owners and/or lessees:
- $1,500 purchase allowance for Luxury models
- $4,000 toward the purchase of a new CT6
- $6,000 total cash allowance for Premium Luxury, Plug-in, and Platinum models
- $5,000 total cash allowance + 2.9 percent APR on Standard models
- $5,500 total cash allowance + 2.9 percent APR when financing a Luxury model with GM Financial
- $6,000 total cash allowance + 2.9 percent APR when financing a Standard, Premium Luxury, Plug-In, and Platinum models with GM Financial
The incentives show that Cadillac is focused on conquesting owners of non-Cadillac (and non-GM) vehicles. In fact, most of the aforementioned incentives for non-GM owners and lessees is made possible by a $4,000 conquest purchase allowance, which is included in those figures.

About Cadillac CT6
The Cadillac CT6 is a full-size prestige luxury sedan. It slots above the mid-size Cadillac CTS and compact Cadillac ATS as the largest Cadillac sedan. The vehicle rides on the high-tech and lightweight GM Omega platform that is currently not shared with any other vehicles, though a full-size Cadillac crossover on the architecture has been rumored.
The current model was introduced for the 2016 model year and represents the first model year of the first-generation CT6. The 2017 model year saw a few minor changes, including the addition of two new exterior colors and darker finish taillamps. The 2018 CT6 introduced such features as Super Cruise, Rear Camera Mirror Washer for the Rear Camera Mirror, as well as an updated CUE infotainment system (to version 2.6).
For the 2019 model year, the CT6 receives a refresh, otherwise known as a facelift or mid-cycle enhancement (MCE, that includes revised exterior styling similar to that of the Escala concept, a new high-performance CT6 V-Sport model that was renamed to CT6-V, the new Cadillac 4.2L Twin-Turbo V-8 engine, a new trim level structure, and improvements to in-vehicle technology. In addition, the 2019 Cadillac CT6 gets the new GM 10-speed automatic transmission on all models, while the base model gets a new base engine in the form of the all-new 2.0L Turbo LSY engine, which replaces the last-generation 2.0L Turbo LTG.
The Cadillac CT6 is build at the following plants:
- GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant supplying North America and Middle East, and
- Cadillac China factory called SGM Jinqiao supplying China and Russia
In addition, the CT6 Plug-In model was built at the SGM Jinqiao plant for all markets, including the United States. The CT6 Plug-In was discontinued in the U.S. after the 2018 model year.
In November 2018, GM announced plans to discontinue the CT6 in North America as part of a restructuring plan that will look to shutter various plants, including the Detroit-Hamtramck location. But in January 2019, Cadillac president, Steve Carlisle, and GM president, Mark Reuss, announced that the CT6 will not be discontinued. However, production will be moved from the Detroit-Hamtramck facility to another plant. Another possibility is that the CT6 will be imported from China, where it will continue being offered. However, Carlisle stated that this is the least desirable option.
