Although the Cadillac CT6 full-size sedan exited the North American market at the end of the 2020 model year, the full-size sedan continued to be sold in China. In fact, GM released the second-gen Cadillac CT6 in the Chinese market for the 2024 model year, prompting GM Authority to ask our readers if they thought the all-new CT6 should be sold in America as well. The answer was an overwhelming yes. Regardless, CT6 fans shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for the second-gen Cadillac CT6 to arrive stateside, per comments made by Global Cadillac Vice President John Roth.
In a recent interview with GM Authority Executive Editor Alex Luft, Roth was asked, “any chance of us getting the CT6 here [in America]? Like the second-gen that was revealed in China?”
Roth’s reply: “Nothing to announce right now.”
Luft: “So to Cadillac in the U.S., the E sedan segment is dead?”
Roth: “Nothing is ever dead in the automotive business.”
Despite Roth’s “non-answer,” Luft got the impression that GM and Cadillac have no plans to bring the latest second-gen Cadillac CT6 to the Americas. However, just last month, a whopping 94 percent of GM Authority poll-takers voted that they think GM should sell the CT6 in America (roughly 1,300 votes total), while in another GM Authority poll conducted in 2018, 43 percent of poll-takers expressed interest in buying a new Cadillac CT6 if it was imported from China.
GM Authority previously laid out the business case for bringing the second-gen 2024 Cadillac CT6 stateside, arguing that GM was already importing the Buick Envision, a higher-volume vehicle with lower profit margins. In addition, we think the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine would make a great option when it comes to powering a hypothetical U.S.-spec second-gen CT6. Even the pricing, set at 359,700 yuan to 469,700 yuan, or roughly US$50,000 to US$65,000, is on the money here.
Unfortunately, it looks like no such consideration is being made at GM currently.
