The number crunchers at our sister publication Cadillac Society have uncovered some interesting information about the prices of used Cadillac CTS-V and CT6-V. Although the two cars were at the top of their respective model lines while still in production, several very noteworthy differences set them apart, and the two are now worth almost exactly the same on the used car market.
Price for used 2019 Cadillac CTS-V models average at $82,620 with 9,204 miles, while prices for a used 2019 Cadillac CT6-V average $80,840 with 11,179 miles.
The data was gathered in November 2020 from AutoTrader.com and referred to 2019 model year Cadillac CTS-V and CT6-V located throughout the U.S.
This is noteworthy for several reasons. First, the CT6-V is a significantly younger product, having been launched in the 2019 model year before its sudden discontinuation after the 2020 model year. By comparison, the third-generation CTS-V was nearing the end of its life cycle, having been introduced for the 2015 model year.
The CT6-V is also larger by an entire size class, measuring in at 205.5 inches long on a wheelbase of 122.4 inches. By comparison, the CTS-V comes in at 195.5 inches long on a 114.6-inch wheelbase.
Of the two cars, the CTS-V is more powerful. Its supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 overhead valve Small Block produces 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the smaller twin turbo 4.2L V8 LTA DOHC Blackwing engine in the CT6-V is rated at 550 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque.
However, the CT6-V makes up for this lost ground with its ten-speed GM Hydra-Matic automatic transmission driving all four wheels. The CTS-V has an eight-speed 8L90 M5U automatic sending power only to the rear wheels.
Yet despite all this, the apparently superior 2019 model year Cadillac CT6-V is now worth almost exactly the same as a Cadillac CTS-V of the same age – at least for the time being.
