Power Ratings Released For 2019 Cadillac CT6 With 2.0L Turbo Engine

When we shared with you the 2019 Cadillac CT6 powertrain lineup earlier this year, we did not have the power ratings for the new 2.0L turbo-charged engine (production code LSY). But now, the numbers are in – and they’re not that impressive.

The Numbers

According to official ratings from Cadillac and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the 2019 CT6 with the new, boosted four-cylinder engine will be make 237  horsepower at 5,000 RPM and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1500-4000 RPM.

Availability

The new 2.0L turbocharged engine on the 2019 Cadillac CT6 is available on the Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels, both of which are rear-wheel-drive.

Comparisons

Notably, that’s 28 horsepower and 37 pound-feet of torque less than the 2.0L turbo engine (production code LTG) used in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 CT6. However, the torque on the new engine is achieved at as low as 1500 RPM, which is half as much as on the outgoing motor.

In addition, the new 2.0 liter is now mated to Cadillac’s new 10-speed automatic transmission, whereas the outgoing unit was paired with an 8-speed gearbox.

The next available engine in the 2019 Cadillac CT6 lineup is the naturally-aspired 3.6L V6 (production code LGX). This motor makes 335 horsepower at 6800 RPM and 284 pound-feet of torque at 5300 rpm.

  1. Would like to see how it compare in performance ,gas mileage and refinement before making judgement. What I am hoping for is a more refined Engine without sacrificing very much or no decrease in performance or gas mileage. If they went to this Engine to just save gas it dosen’t make sense, because most people don’t buy these type of cars for gas saving.

  2. It was hard enough for me when Cadillac the V6 standard equipment, I’m an old school Cadillac V8 guy. Making a 4 cylinder standard in a Cadillac is sacrilege as far as I’m concerned.

    • Completely agree, this was a typical dumb GM move. Now the CT6 appears to be cancelled…. GM is run by incompetants.

  3. I predict that with the LSY 2.0T with full bls. of torque at 1500 RPM with the 10 Speed transmission, performance will be similar to the ’18 models w/ the LTG setup. That might be good or bad to some on here give or take.

    I’m more interested on the base Blackwing that will be available on Platinum and hopefully on the Sport model as well.

    • Unfortunately, this is unknown. We have tried obtaining the data every which way imaginable, but to no avail.
