Cadillac CT6 sales decreased almost 30 percent to 1,714 units in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decrease is not surprising considering the ongoing shift in market dynamics that swings in favor of crossovers, SUVs and pickups over sedans. And now, in what could be a way to boost sales volume in the highly-competitive large luxury sedan segment, a new Cadillac discount reduces the price of select 2018 CT6 models by $4,000 and of select, refreshed 2019 CT6 models by as much as $1,500.
The Cadillac discounts on the CT6 for February 2019 are as follows:
- 2018 CT6 (finance): 0 percent APR for 72 months when financing with GM Financial (only available until February 11)
- 2018 CT6 (purchase): $4,000 purchase allowance
- This offer seems to be limited to select markets. For example, we saw the deal active for Miami, Los Angeles, and New York, but not for Central Pennsylvania, which only offers a $1,000 purchase allowance.
- 2019 CT6 (lease): $2,000 toward the lease of a new model for current GM lessees with Ally, U.S. Bank or GM Financial
- 2019 CT6 (purchase): $1,500 cash when financing with GM Financial (excludes CT6-V)
For reference, here are the 2018 and 2019 CT6 trim levels and their corresponding starting MSRPs:
- Base/CT6 – $55,090
- Luxury – $60,190
- Premium Luxury – $66,290
- Plug-In – $75,095
- Platinum – $85,290
- Luxury – $51,490
- Premium Luxury – $59,090
- Sport – $67,590
- Platinum – $87,790
Applied to a 2018 CT6 Premium Luxury model with a starting MSRP of $66,290, the $4,000 discount brings the starting price to just $62,290, making it almost as affordable as a CT6 base model. Meanwhile, the $1,500 discount brings the starting price of a 2019 CT6 down to $49,990.

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.
