Cadillac’s hotly-anticipated 2019 CT6-V, which was initially introduced as the CT6 V-Sport, will have a starting price of $88,790 in the United States.
That figure, which excludes tax, title, license, delivery, dealer fees, and optional equipment, gets you a 2019 CT6-V with the all-new Blackwing V-8 engine making an estimated 550 horsepower (410 kW) and 627 pound-feet of torque (850 Nm). The hand-built engine is mated to an all-new, 10-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels. The CT6-V also gets a unique calibration of the Magnetic Ride Control suspension.
The $88,790 also includes tuition and luxury accommodation at the two-day Cadillac V-Performance Academy at Spring Mountain. The offer is valid for one year and is reserved for the original owner of each new, unused model.
The 2019 CT6-V arrives in mid-2019. Only 275 will be available for pre-order in the United States, as Cadillac will discontinue the CT6 in the market thereafter. Update: the CT6 is not being discontinued after all.
