SAIC-GM, General Motors’ main joint venture in China, announced the launch of a new special edition of the Cadillac CT6 to commemorate the luxury brand’s 120th Anniversary.
The automaker will unveil the new Cadillac CT6 120th Anniversary Edition on Monday, June 27th, during a special event in Shanghai, as a prelude to the brand’s official anniversary celebration in August. China is currently the only country where the Cadillac CT6 is sold after production ceased in Detroit in 2020.
The Cadillac CT6 120th Anniversary Edition’s first image shows that it will be based on the 2022 Sport trim level, with slight changes. This new special edition uses a V-shaped mesh grille, sporty rocker panels, black window surrounds, a small decklid spoiler, and specific blacked-out wheels.
Production of this new special edition will be limited to 300 units. It will be the last version released based on the current model before the official debut of the next-generation CT6 that GM Authority captured undergoing testing in March. The second-generation Cadillac CT6 is expected to be introduced in China later this year as a 2023 model.
Under the hood, the Cadillac CT6 120th Anniversary Edition maintains the familiar turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY engine that develops 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, matched to the GM ten-speed automatic transmission.
During the official presentation, SAIC-GM will reveal all the design and feature details as well as pricing of the full-size sedan’s commemorative edition that celebrates a new milestone for the brand’s rich and long history.
