2020 Cadillac CT6 Gets Big Price Bump, But More Standard Content

Cadillac’s large luxury sedan is hanging in there despite slowing sales. And for 2020, it’s about to become a lot pricier, according to a report from CarsDirect.

Dropping the 2.0- and 3.0-liter engines, Cadillac will offer the CT6 with two powerplants: the 3.6-liter V-6 and twin-turbo 4.2-liter Blackwing V-8. This move puts the cheapest CT6, the V-6-powered Luxury model, at $59,990, an increase of $8,500 from the starting price of the 2019 model. The Luxury model gains a Driver Awareness and Convenience package, which adds automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and other features. This package was previously a $3,500 option.

In a statement to MotorTrend, Cadillac said about the price changes, “The important thing to note is the increased standard content for the various trims—it’s not simply a jump in price,” adding that “The new standard content features high penetrating options that are in most demand from customers.”

The mid-level Premium Luxury is $11,900 more expensive than last year’s model that cost $63,590. But for the extra money, it gains Super Cruise; a 34-speaker Bose Panaray sound system; a Rear Seat package, which currently includes a rear-seat infotainment system and quad-zone climate controls; and Comfort and Technology package, which nets heated rear seats and ventilated front seats. The top Platinum model will be priced from $97,490 and will only be available with the Blackwing V-8 making 500 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. It gains special 20-inch wheels that were once optional.

After selling out quickly the first round, the CT6-V will return. But prices will go up $3,100 to $95,890. The 550-hp sedan gains the previously-optional Driver Assist package, which boasts adaptive cruise control, night vision, and front and rear automatic emergency braking.
