GM Teases Next-Gen 2024 Cadillac CT6 Sedan Prior To Debut38
As GM Authority exclusively reported several weeks ago, General Motors is gearing up for the imminent global debut of the next-gen 2024 Cadillac CT6. To that end, it has shared some teaser images of Cadillac‘s prestige sedan in China.
The automaker has revealed the first official images of the next-gen Cadillac CT6 ahead of the model’s upcoming debut event in China, scheduled for later this month. In fact, the SAIC-GM joint venture has revealed that the all-new 2024 Cadillac CT6 will kick off a major rejuvenation of Cadillac’s internal combustion vehicle portfolio in the Asian country, which will take place concurrently with the luxury brand’s forthcoming onslaught of electric vehicles.
GM’s teasers of the 2024 Cadillac CT6 sedan include a close-up shot of the headlights and grille, along with a silhouette of the side profile. It’s worth noting that we’ve already seen the exterior of the next-gen Cadillac CT6 completely undisguised thanks to some leaked images. Additionally, GM has also released the very first (complete) images of the luxury sedan’s interior.
Aesthetically, the 2024 Cadillac CT6 presents an evolution of the luxury brand’s design language, featuring sleeker lines, a commanding front end, and a new interpretation of Cadillac’s iconic vertical lighting signature. In fact, GM claims that the bodywork of the next-generation CT6 is inspired by the acclaimed Cadillac Escala Concept, complete with athletic proportions, a more planted stance and a steeper, liftback-like D-pillar.
The interior design of the 2024 Cadillac CT6 is much more elegant and tech-laden than that of the outgoing, first-generation model. The new model features the luxury brand’s latest technological advances, headlined by the huge 33-inch OLED 9K curved screen that is quite similar to the debuted by the new Cadillac Lyriq EV. This display, powered by the Qualcom Snapdragon 8155 chip with 5G connectivity, will be standard equipment for the new 2024 CT6.
The next-gen 2024 Cadillac CT6 will make its global debut on May 28 and will officially launch during the second quarter in China, which is expected to remain the only country where GM builds and markets the vehicle. As such, the new iteration of the Cadillac CT6 will continue to be produced at the Cadillac Jinqiao plant in Shanghai to supply the Chinese market.

Bring the CT6 to the Americas. There are many potential customers who want a new Cadillac sedan.
Build it in America
Nah. Don’t need more ICE garbage here. But they could make a CT6 EV in North America.
Perhaps people do not want EV garbage
I believe the only way for this vehicle to be built in America, is to have Mary Buick Envision Made in China-Barra fired.
I’d bet they could import about a thousand at a time and one trim level and a couple of color choices. GM should be able to find buyers between fleet and retail. It’ll really depend on demand in the Chinese market.
I’m honestly trying to look at these pics with an open (or more open than normal??) mind when it comes to the interior and dash/screen. It’s been obvious that I’m not a fan at all of these screens and I just can’t understand the infatuation with them. As I’m going about my daily business, I’ve started to pay closer attention to the vehicles around me and their dashes and screens. What I’m noticing is that the interiors have gone away from attractive designs and are now looking like after-thoughts built around the screens. IMO, Tesla and Toyota have the worst looking dashes and designs (or lack of). Even though I’m trying to find the positive in it all, it’s actually causing me to dislike the automotive industry even more. I just don’t see the reasons for and/or the attraction to these huge screens.
So now going back to the couple pics of the inside/dash/screen of this CT6. If I can sort of blot out the screen, the interior looks quite nice. Everything seems to flow and has an elegant look. But then the screen just kills the entire design overall. Too bad, but then who cares since GM won’t give the US this car anyhow.
Tesla’s screens are just modified tablets tacked onto a bland panel. Gotta be cheaper to make than the artfully shaped units in other similarly-prices vehicles. Elon saved even more money by building the Model 3 with no grille.
Totally agree…Tesla is a master at finding and acting on cost savings. The S/X even ditched the turn signal stalk, they have no park/reverse/drive controller, the button on the steering wheels than controls audio volume also adjusts mirrors and steering wheel position. And not a single control switch or module unit on the dash…no hvac, audio unit, etc. Everything on a single inexpensive screen…and the buyers seem to love what a different and stark expereince it is. It’s pretty impressive how much cost is avoided…I guess those margins gotta come from somewhere.
The screen looks alright to me, but I’m betting it would look a lot nicer without the toyish looking iPhone colors on it. It just doesn’t really match the interior of a car.
I think true luxury is the thought of how genuine the interior is. I would much rather have beautiful leather and wood with nice dash lines instead of a big screen.
Nothing really special
The exterior looks more like an Impala or Malibu. Has the look of a Chevy or Buick sedan – not a Caddy.
It looks like the same styling cues as any other modern Cadillac to me.

SoSo exterior in my opinion
Who cares if we can’t have it in the states and built here! I own a 2017 CT6 Phantom Gray Premium AWD, AWS, Super Cruise and a 2020 CT6 Shadow Gray Premium Luxury AWD, AWS, Super Cruise and a 2002 Cadillac DHS with 100K miles on the NorthStar engine without issues.
I would consider a 2nd generation CT6 as long as it wasn’t a 4 banger turbo POS, but at least the 6 cylinder or a BlackWing. Build it here and they will come as not everyone wants a CUV, SUV, pick-up or minivan.
Is anyone in GM/Cadillac listening to us? Oh, just China…
The 2024 CT6 is a beautiful car. I’d buy or lease one in a heart beat…IF it were available in the US. Too bad Cadillac is walking away from the customer base that has supported it for the past 100 years.
What I do not understand about the CT6 and supposedly an updated XT5 for the Chinese market is that allegedly ICE sales are very hard to come by in China. I wonder if that is mostly for Cheaper cars and Luxury ICE still sells somewhat?
They might be able to sell a few thousand before the ICE market in China totally collapses.
Nobody wants that EV crap
Millions of people disagree with you.
I ordered a 2024CT4, any updates on changes from 2023 models?
The car is beautiful. But WHY can’t Americans have it ?
Cadillac sales ate WAY down in the US .
What is the logic of trying to sell two smaller Cadillacs , and not this ?
It could be worse…..Cadillac could be Lincoln.
Sales, that’s why. Or more to the point, the lack of them.
CT6 peaked @ 10k in 2017. Less than 8K in 2019. Not enough to support production. The Omega platform was exclusive to the CT6. This adds a lot of cost.
Sounds like poor planning by GM’s management, which should be no surprise to anyone.
And CT – 4 & 5 are huge sellers ?
A myriad a issues involved the sales , which weren’t bad…..the marketing , and dumb name : Nobody knew what it was ; was the problem.
GM could of spread that cost across the company, instead of wasting the effort , by basing one of those ” precious crossovers everyone wants ” ( NOT ) one the platform , and made a big Buick with it to.
Well GM survived the Great Depression , (.made fortunes on wars )., recessions, energy crises, but aren’t going to survive Wall Street Private Equity – Institutional investors , demanding more & more & trying to pinch every dollar , by making less , and less product
Some pedantic people, with no passion cannot see the forest for the trees .
Surface information : The foreign makers , are building , and selling cars .
Cadillac sales are bad , and Buicks nonsense, is getting worse.
Let tazteless , senseless Mary Barra , and those she fronts for , sell off those divisions to someone who cares.
There is a lot of talk of them building EVs and magically this will all change. I don’t see any reason to believe that, when everyone else is also building EVs.
If people would already rather buy an Audi than a Cadillac, then why wouldn’t they just buy an Audi EV? Especially considering that they actually sell those already.
No. The CT4 and CT5 are not big sellers. Certianly more popular than the CT6 was, though. But the CT4 & 5 share a platform and factory with the Camaro. Sales of all 3 combined make production at least a break even if not a little profitable. Also, the Alpha platform is older ( Fall 2012 was the first product. ATS, IIRC) and the costs more fully amortized, even with the update done a few years ago.
GM has to know these things.
1. Nearly 1/3 of the vehicles sold there are plugin and this keeps increasing.
2. 50% or vehicles sold are crossovers with another 5% being MPVs which are nothing but crossovers and this segment keeps increasing.
3. If companies / CCP decides to give fixed money to their executives / party bosses and ask them to buy a vehicles of their choice, most of them will buy an electric crossover at a lower price and pocket the remaining amount for some commitment instead of buying an expensive luxury sedan.
GM is still committed only to ICE vehicles and thats why CT6 sedan will have only ICE version without any hybrid/plugin.
I really dig that wrap screen . Overall looks great . Better save up !
So ICE cars still get CarPlay?
Isn’t that just for future ev cars and not now?
The first gen CT6 was better looking.
This one is too bland and generic looking.
Looks similar to the new Buick Lacrosse and both of them look like warmed over versions of the last Impala.
If I could flip Cadillac off right now I would.
The 2019-2020 was the absolute best looking CT6. Glad they’re not bringing this ugly crap over here.
