Cadillac CT6 V-Sport
Having launched the CT6 full-size prestige-sport-luxury sedan for the 2016 model year, it is possible that Cadillac will launch a more sporty variant dubbed CT6 V-Sport.
Following is speculative and unconfirmed information about the Cadillac CT6 V-Sport. This page is a continuous work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis as we await official details from General Motors and Cadillac.
If you notice any inaccuracies about the information provided, have recommendations, or suggestions to share, please let us know here.
Following are possibilities of what a supposed Cadillac CT6 V-Sport would offer:
- More power, more handling prowess, and more overall performance than the non-V-Sport CT6, but not as much as the rumored CT6-V
- Powerful twin-turbo V6 engine making 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque
- Distinguishable and more aggressive body work for a more sporty presence and improved aerodynamics and downforce at high speeds
- Possibly upgraded suspension system, more competent brakes, and larger wheels with high-performance summer-only tires
- More sporty interior for a more sporty feel, while maintaining the luxury amenities of the CT6
- 2017 calendar year debut as a 2017 or 2018 model year vehicle
It’s possible that the Cadillac CT6 V-Sport will be powered by Cadillac’s 3.6-liter Twin-Turbo V6 LF4 engine shared with the 2016 ATS-V. The powerplant makes 464 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque in the ATS-V.
The engine could be mated to GM’s 8-speed 8L90 automatic transmission or a new, as-of-yet unannounced 10-speed automatic transmission. Power will likely be sent to the rear wheels, though an all-wheel drive variant is possible.
The CT6 V-Sport would compete with the following full-size prestige-sport-luxury vehicles:
- BMW 750i
- Mercedes-Benz S600
- Audi S8
