The Cadillac CT6’s future has been on again, off again. Nonetheless, there will be at least a short run of the 2020 model year, which is bringing significant changes to the trim levels and pricing.
A new report from CarsDirect finds that the base model of the CT6 has been pulled from the lineup, indicated by the fact Cadillac has killed the base model 2.0-liter engine. Without a base model, this means the Luxury trim is the new entry-level and it has climbed $3,500 over the 2019 Luxury trim to a base price of $59,990. Cadillac says it has made its Driver Awareness and Convenience Packages standard, which was a $3,500 option.
Stepping up from the Luxury trim will bring buyers to the $75,490 Premium Luxury trim. This trim has climbed $11,490, but Cadillac says it has added a host of standard equipment, such as Cadillac Super Cruise, Rear Seat Package and its Bose Panaray Surround Sound system to justify the price-hike.
Both Luxury and Premium Luxury models are equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6, replacing the 400 horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6.
Lastly, The top-end CT6 Platinum will carry a starting price of $97,490, an increase of $700 over the 2019 model. It is worth mentioning this is the CT6 equipped with Cadillac’s Blackwing V-8 engine.
So while the base prices of the 2020 CT6 have climbed–significantly in some cases–it has substantially more standard equipment to justify the hikes. While the price tags are high, perhaps the added gear is enough to make a value proposition.
