A rare 2019 Cadillac CT6 Platinum with the optional Blackwing V8 engine has appeared for sale at a GM dealership in Florida.
This appealing full-size luxury sedan is one of a small number of 2019 model-year Cadillac CT6 Platinum models that left the GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant equipped with the optional twin-turbocharged 4.2L V8 LTA engine. This dual overhead camshaft eight-cylinder was factory rated at 500 horsepower and 574 pound-feet of torque in the CT6 Platinum, sending power to all four wheels via a GM 10-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel drive system. This motor came standard in the 2019 and 2020 model-year Cadillac CT6-V, as well, producing 550 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque in that application.
There’s more to this lightly used luxury sedan than a powerful forced induction V8, however. As some GM Authority readers may already know, the Cadillac CT6 Platinum came standard with GM’s hands-free, semi-autonomous Super Cruise driving assistant. While Super Cruise is now becoming more commonplace (it’s even offered in the fairly inexpensive 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV, remember), it was limited to the high-end CT6 for the 2019 model year.
This particular 2019 Cadillac CT6 was also ordered with Crystal White Tricoat exterior paint and features a Very Light Cashmere interior with Maple Sugar accents. It shows 30,995 miles on the odometer and is listed for a pricy $71,750. While that’s fairly expensive for a second-hand four-door such as this, keen GM fans will know just how uncommon it can be to find a used CT6 for sale with the 4.2L V8 under the hood. In addition to the 4.2L V8 LTA, the Cadillac CT6 was also offered with the turbocharged GM 2.0L I-4 LTG, naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX and twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGW engines.
