The Cadillac CT6 is General Motors first vehicle to ride on the automaker’s Omega platform, and with the latest platform comes many servicing asterisks. Cadillac dealers in the Middle East now have the tools necessary to ensure work meets Cadillac standards.
Omega utilizes an intricate mixed material strategy of aluminum, high-strength steel and nine other materials, which requires special tools to ensure work can be performed properly. The assembly process features an industry-first application of steel and aluminum bonding that is possible with a GM-patented method. It keeps the CT6 rigid, safe and shaves precious weight.
Dealers across the region have completed the investment in the specialized tools and trained body shop employees on the CT6’s repair process should a sedan roll in for body work.
“Since the launch of the CT6, we have ensured that our aftersales teams have conducted regular visits and trainings to our dealer network to insure the highest quality and standards that our customers have come to know and expect during the complete life cycle of their vehicle.” Mohammed Al Fayyad, Director of Customer Care, said.
Back in the U.S., third-party shops must undergo certification to perform body repairs on the CT6. That’s how intricate the process is.
