The future of the Cadillac CT6 has been questionable and somewhat drama-filled recently, but a 2020 model is a for-sure thing. Cadillac has released the order guide for the 2020 CT6, confirming its ditching one of its engine options.
According to the order guide, the 2020 CT6 will drop the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine. Once the flagship engine option in the CT6’s early days, Cadillac has dropped it in favor of the naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter V-6. Those seeking more power need not worry, Cadillac is going to continue offering its hot 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine as the standard engine on the CT6 Platinum.
Power ratings for the new 3.6-liter and detuned 4.2-liter V-8 have not been finalized yet, according to the order guide. That said, both engines will be mated exclusively to a 10 speed automatic transmission.
This marks the second engine the CT6 has ditched in the last few months. Recently Cadillac confirmed it was pulling the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the CT6 lineup as well.
Cadillac also notes the CT6’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving tech will have expanded mileage to include trunk roads. We assume this implies it will work in areas in which interstates converge into one (interchanges).
Lastly, the 2020 CT6 will sport Cadillac’s new, bizarre engine badging. The 3.6-liter model will have a 400 badge, while the 4.2-liter will have an 800T badge.
