If I were buying one to preserve for its significant role in Cadillac history, it would have to be a Blackwing; preferably a Blackwing V-Series. I think the CT6 was one final last hurrah for the product that made Cadillac famous.
The quintessential BMW is the canyon carving 3 Series. It’s the heart of the brand. For Mercedes, it’s the big resplendent S-Class. Unlike BMW which grew up from their fabulous little 2002, Mercedes started at the top and grew down to smaller cars with the big S-Class still being the flag-bearer for the brand. For Porsche, it’s obviously the 911. A Wrangler is the icon anchor product for Jeep.
As for Cadillac, their recent history is much less linear, much more interrupted but as I see it, the epitome of Cadillac is the big V-8 powered RWD sedans that they built so many of. This is the classic Cadillac design which made the name synonymous with the best of it’s field. The high compliment of being called “The Cadillac of …..” was earned by the excellence of those supremely silent and comfortable big V-8 sedans. They’re the archetypal Cadillac and, for one brief shining moment, they brought it back; the classic formula was finally fully realized with the final Blackwing Cadillac CT6 models. As such, those final cars represent the end of an era. The future for Cadillac looks to be battery powered, skateboard chassis products quite different from Cadillac’s heyday. While they still have a chance to be good and appropriate for modern times, they’ll never be what once was and, thus, the CT6 Blackwing, imperfect though it may have been, is that end of an era product so often prized by collectors.
The better choice would be the 2020 CT6 Platinum….it comes with the Blackwing V8, but has better leather, Super Cruise, and tri zone hvac……it also has 2 leather choices for the interior. I have a 2018 CT6 Platinum with the Light Cashmere leather which I think looks much more luxurious than the Gray-Black interior.
You may be down 50 horsepower from the CT6 V (500-550) but the dealer can compensate for that …..
It’s tragic. The CT6 was a competitive entry that was doing well in its class. Just when GM starts to fully realize the vehicle, they pull the plug.
The Cadillac CT6 is a prime example of what happens when the design team zigged when the general public zagged as the design team presented showcars that did not match what the public were expecting and totally misfired; I still remember Clint Eastwood saying the Cadillac Ciel was a car he would buy.. there’s little doubt that Mr Eastwood did not buy a CT6.
Seeing as how Eastwood is 1000 years old, I guess it was either a Ciel or a casket…..
If any other 90 year old told you that was a cool car would you care?
This car was a victim of bad timing. It needed to come out as an SUV instead of a sedan.
They have plenty of SUVS ,and not everyone wants one . A luxury brand needs a big car .
Soon most luxury brands wont have a “car” at all. Its about making money on products that sell. The numbers show that most people don’t want “a big car”
….And what the hell happens when buying trends change and you have NO cars to sell……NOTHING, NOTHING LASTS FOREVER!
………..And thats the reason why ALL the other brands still make cars………..
All other brands have diminishing car sales also. check the sales numbers. GM just got out first.
Matt who is part of GM you are wrong and GM will go under again due to your stupid decosions
You build new ones.
GM miss management fouled up Cadillac totally in the early 80’s. The decline started in the seventy’s then hit full speed and GM short shortsightedness greed cheapness and incompetence continues to marginalize it to this day. Mid 2000’s when GM finally started to transform Cadillac into what it should be 25 years to late, but finally an effort. Then that effort gets trashed by the cheap clueless bureaucrats that is GM management. Cadillac’s are now cheap common Chevrolet’s in fancy cloths. I am sure the death warrant for CT4 and CT5 have been handed down by the brain trust. There is no room for anything special or unique at GM just the most cheapest homogenized platform available. There will be NO true Cadillac any more, Just a styling punch line, a Chevrolet down to it bones as cheaply made as possible with 600 dollar cheap single piston auto Zone brake calipers painted red to set it apart from its parts bin anatomy. GM is all about Potential ignored, pushed away and cost cut to impotence. Thanks guys!
GM incompetence at it’s finest! They are like a ship with a pin hole leak slowly filling with water and slowly sinking!
It is just COST PROHIBITIVE to run the pumps and fix the hole. GM management would make the BOLD decision to to call the ship a submarine and brag about its bright future on the bottom!
That leak is getting bigger and bigger………….
These photos are old. The trees are bare. It’s been on the lot quite a while.
GM has been a ball of confusion since 1970, when. it was announced that the 1976 Cadillac Eldorado was the last American convertible. By the mid 80’s and since then the Cadillac division has wasted untold billions trying to be a BMW alternative
Nobody at GM can figure out WHAT Cadillac is supposed to be! Only thing that is certain is Cadillac is ALWAYS being transformed into something else…………
……And that is why I stated in a previous thread that Cadillac should take advantage of the Corvette C8 chassis and do a Cadillac Cien.
I know the Allnte and the XLR were disasters but remember they were not thought through. The Allante was designed and built in Europe, a bad idea from the start, and had horrible quality control and a cheap interior…………the XLR much the same as the Allante with that K-Mart interior and a top that poured water into the trunk……horrible quality control.
The current C8 would not only give Cadillac a flagship 2 sea H.T. but a convertible also…..just give it a beautiful Cadillac design, with a top quality interior…
They already had a CS1, CS2, and CS3 planned under De Nysschen. I believe they would sell a whole lot better than a $200,000 electric…..
The Allante’ was a rather interesting vehicle. I’m sure you know this but others may not; it wasn’t truly built in Europe although it kinda was. GM and Pininfarina of Italy built the Allante’ together. The bodies and interiors were crafted in Italy and loaded onto specially outfitted Alitalia 747 jets in Turin and flown across the Atlantic to Detroit. In the Motor City, at the Hamtramck plant, the bodies were married to the Cadillac-built underpinnings and engine. They called the process the Allante’ Air Bridge and it was billed as the longest production line in the world.
It was a novel approach to adding cachet to the Cadillac brand and to justify the Allante’s $70,000 price tag. It might’ve worked but those underpinnings were shorted Eldorado parts with an anemic 4.1 liter V8 which really couldn’t deliver the performance the sexy cabriolet body promised. It was Cadillac’s attempt to take on Mercedes’ vaunted SL but most buyers decided to stick with the original. In true GM form, they added the vastly superior 4.6 liter 32-valve Northstar V8 to the Allante’ and finally gave it the go-power to match its show but only about five minutes before GM brass pulled the plug. In that sense, it’s the same story as CT6 only at least the Northstar lived on. Blackwing lived a truly short sad few moments.
Wow where have I hear this story before. GM gets the product finally right in it’s last model year and then pulls the plug. From the CT6 Blackwing to the Allante to the Fiero to the Riviera and many others. The amount of cash this company has burned through with mistakes, miscalculations, dead end projects and just plain dumb management is epic! And politically correct Mary continues the drama in full force!
The XLR was truly sexy, it was nice.
The way GM sees it, If it wont go on a pickup platform or a run of the mill common cuv platform they [just cant!!!!] build a business case for it, bla bla bla…. Other car builders can, but NOT GM!!!!
GM think…. How can we build a Cadillac at the same cost as a Cavalier???
They need to stop pawning off a mid sized car as full size. and bring back a Fleetwood model with AWD. Time to go back to real names not letters, have some pride man.
