Cadillac CT6 Gets Two New Colors For 2017 Model Year17
The 2016 Cadillac CT6 has just launched, but the 2017 model is not that far away, as we expect it to launch by the end of 2016. When that does happen, the 2017 CT6 will feature the following three changes:
- Graphite Metallic exterior color is deleted

Guess we gotta wait til next year to get the 4.2L TTV8! 🙁 Oh well…..
You’ll have to wait a bit for the new engine. After all, they’re not making pizzas 😉
Hey Alex, the new V8 will be available in the new CT8 er.. I mean CT9 um. I mean wait I mean the CT6.. Lol All joking aside, what do you think the likelihood is that we will see the V8 in a future flagship first. A interesting theory I heard is that the CT8 and 9 were morphed into one vehical, as the CT9.. But not with a 300K pricetag, more like a $110k to $130k price tag and still on track to come out in 2020. This info came from a dealer owner I spoke to today but not going to mention his name or dealer name. Have you heard anything on this?
That’s a possibility… but we haven’t heard anything about it yet.
What has me puzzled is that the CT6 already is a flagship and is a really good car. They need to keep things simple and make an extended length version of it , and call it a day. Much like everyone else in the segment already does with L variants of their full-size sedans.
So given all that, I think that we will see the TT V8 in the CT6 first, and then see it propagate across the lineup from there.
I agree that the CT6 is a super nice car. I really think though they should of just named it a CT7 or 8 to begin with. Ct6 just sounds mid leval in my opinion and not flagship material. The one person that the media needs to get a hold of is Mark Ruess, he was the one that was saying that Cadillac had a larger car in the works and he said it few times.. It would be interesting to hear what he would say now when asked.
Flagship? CT6, Reallly? You can call it that for the lack of having anything else to offer but Cadillac comes out with a car equal to or better than the last version of the DTS, they really don’t have a big luxury car to sell. The last flagship that replaced the DTS was nothing but a Chevy Impala with Cadillac badges and a complete failure. The CT6 is bigger than the XTS but not enough to make a real difference.
where is pictures new colors. who cares this words we need pictures
Sometimes, we get this information so far in advance that pictures aren’t available. Patience my friend, patience 🙂
Why is Graphite Metallic being deleted for ’17? The CT6 is arriving at dealerships slowing and we have not receive one shipment in Nashville, TN yet.
Is the decision based on pre-orders?
Maybe the 2nd generation CT6 will go upmarket and be in the $100k- range and Caddy will build a higher volume $200k- range car above the 2nd generation CT6 in 2025 and a $300k car in 2029.
Never mind the silly colours: What’s the status on Cadillac getting a real, honest-to-goodness flagship sedan at some point? We’ve heard that the CT8 is probably dead, but that doesn’t mean Cadillac doesn’t need a sedan above the current CT6…even if it’s only an extended-wheelbase version of the CT6. From what I’ve heard, the CT6 is a fine car in a lot of ways, but where it really lets the side down is under the hood: A base four-cylinder engine…seriously? I don’t care if it’s turbocharged and makes 275 horsepower (and something like 295 lb-ft of torque). Buyers of a certain stratum will never take the CT6 seriously as a flagship car as long as it has a base four-cylinder engine. Yes, I know the the four-cylinder CT6 is said to drive quite well, and I’m sure it does…for a four-cylinder car, that is. Stretch the CT6, make it exclusively six- and eight-cylinders plus, and watch the Cadillac brand’s prestige increase along with its price point. We do not need a Volvo clone, thank you.
The CT8 is currently along in development but more emphasis on CUVs and SUVs. Cadillac is not doing a LWB version of the CT6 so the current model with just one standard wheelbase is it.
There are other engine choices and the hybrid and V-sport is on its way.
Chris, I hear you about the turbo 4, the hp and torque are all good, but at this level a 4-cyl base is almost taboo to most consumers. Many Buyers in this range see that as a weakness!
The Camaro/Mustang crowd is even more open to a 4-cyl turbo than these buyers.
Plus I hope they get around to improving the interior fit and finish! I’ve seen firsthand, and have been reading several reviews of the CT6, and one of car’s weakest aspects is that of the interior quality and materials! Why is there so much exposed plastic paneling on the doors and parts of the center stack on all trim levels below the premium model? UNACCEPTABLE!!!!! ???And the Bose Panaray system is mediocre at best! But the updated CUE system is pretty good! So at least they got that part right!
Overall, the CT6 is a mixed bag of great handling and a dissapointing interior! I guess you can tell where GM spent the money on this car! Unfortunately, the interior quality ain’t it!!!
Bronze Dune sounds like it could be an interesting color until you realize that the RPO code reveals that it’s the same as “pepperdust”
I drove the new CT6 last weekend and it drives beautifully. The car I drove was a 3.6 Luxury AWD with an MSRP of $64,000 and I was very impressed. It drives like my CTS but better, its big, but doesn’t drive big. It is comfortable and roomy and everything a Cadillac should be. I believe Cadillac has a winning in the new CT6, that is if Mr. Ellinghaus can and his Ad Agency can come up with a decent Ad Campaign. Maybe he should call Harlan Charles, from the Corvette Team, for some advice.
the CT8 is dead and Im afraid the CT6 is the flagship for the next 8-9 years.
