The future of the Cadillac CT6 sedan has been under question for several months, but in the meantime one variant of the car appears to have completely died off.
According to Cadillac’s own website, the luxury brand has removed GM’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder from the CT6 lineup. The four-pot was originally the base engine on the car, offering 258 horsepower and 237 pound-feet of torque.
It was never entirely clear why the small engine was being offered in Cadillac’s largest sedan. Nonetheless, it has been pulled, likely stemming from the fact Cadillac has added the 500 horsepower 4.2-liter Blackwing V-8 as an option on the high-end.
In addition to the V-8, Cadillac is still offering a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 with 400 horsepower, while the base engine will now be the 3.6-liter V-6 with 335 horsepower.
Of course, ditching the base engine means the CT6 base price has climbed by a few thousand to $56,490.
