2019 Cadillac CT6 Confirmed Changes
- Deletion of the 2.0L turbo I-4 LTG as the base engine: GM’s filings with the NHTSA in December 2017 have shown that the Turbo 2.0L LTG inline four-cylinder engine will be discontinued from the 2019 Cadillac CT6. The filing precedes any official announcements from Cadillac, since the brand has yet to announce any changes associated with the 2019 CT6. The deletion of the engine hints at an overhaul of the powertrain-trim level lineup as Cadillac is widely expected to introduce its new twin-turbo V-8 engine in the 2019 CT6.

We expect the 2019 Cadillac CT6 to include the following updates:

- Introduction of the new Cadillac 4.2L Twin-Turbo V-8 DOHC engine in a potential CT6 V-Sport model
