2020 Cadillac CT6 Makes An Appearance At The ESPYs8
The 2019 ESPY Awards (which is short for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Awards) were recently hosted on ABC.
In recent history, Cadillac commercials have a common sight during major awards shows, while the automaker is also often present at pop culture events like fashion shows.
It was no surprise to see General Motors’ luxury brand appear at the 2019 ESPY Awards, then. The automaker brought the updated 2020 Cadillac CT6 sedan to the show, sending out a tweet showing the Crystal White painted car situated outside the show.
“Like the other athletes on the red carpet, the Cadillac CT6 is agile and fierce. From tight cornering to open roads, every ride is one to conquer and remember,” ESPN’s Juan Ocampo said of the full-size four-door.

In addition to presenting the 2020 Cadillac CT6 in physical form at the show, the car also featured in a 60-second advertisement that aired during ABC’s coverage of the ceremony. In addition to the CT6, the ad, dubbed ‘Summer Nights’ also featured the Escalade, XT4, and XT5.
The 2020 Cadillac CT6 has ditched the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged LGY V6 and 2.0-liter turbocharged LSY four-cylinder engines from its lineup, leaving only the 3.6-liter LFX V6. The 2020 Cadillac CT6 Platinum and CT6-V also give buyers a little more choice, offering up the 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V8 Blackwing engine.
Prices for the 2020 Cadillac CT6 start at $59,990 for the base model. It is not yet clear if production of the sedan will continue in the United States beyond the 2020 model year.

How about a coupe version already?!?!?
I would love that. Unfortunately, with all of the advanced materials and tech, I’m not sure they are actually making money on this car and, not willing to expand it into variations that may or, may not make them money.
The smart thing to have done, would be to think beyond only one application of this expensive and leading tech. Apply liberally, yet wisely.
No one can afford a high-tech single application platform in today’s world.
Interesting that this comes from GM. A brand famous for squeezing the lemon for every drop of platform sharing.
Let’s hope this model is not under the big, “snuff it” shoe.
And a Chevy/Buick version as well….
Cadillac CT7 will be a coupe.
I will not quote the whole Billy Madison famous end sequence on this “Zcat”, but OMG. That is nuts.
This looks to be a fairly decent offering from a GM that is attempting to provide real-world luxury and simultaneous value for the customer.
Please drive this and the competition, vote with your dollar, and let GM determine if this has margin enough for stakeholders.
This looks like a product to consider
Nuts? Come on, Billy.
I’m not sure what part of my statement implied the CT6 was not a worthy product.
I merely stated that, it is an advanced and tech-laden platform, that needed to be (from conception) a multi-tier platform to share the cost in offering more than one iteration.
It almost got the axe-here in the US market-even after all of the expense to generate its existence.
Proliferate that platform to achieve economies of scale. Don’t dump it in the waste bin.
BTW- good movie, even though it’s not really good. I love cheesy comedy.
Typical GM , just as they get it right they decide to cancel the car . GM has a ot of money in this platform / car . My caddy salesman told me that they are hearing that the CT6 will live on past 2020 but a Chinese built car for export to the U.S . I would rather see the car killed off than see Cadillacs flagship car built in China . Wonder what Trump would think of that scenario .
It would not bode too well for the upcoming contract talks with the UAW either.
