Last week, Cadillac announced that the 2019 CT6-V will have a starting price of $88,790, and that pre-orderes will be capped at 275 units for the United States market.
Well, those 275 allocations were spoken for within minutes of the pre-order system coming online for dealers.
In case it’s slipped your mind, the 2019 Cadillac CT6-V is powered by 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 starting price excludes tax, title, license, delivery, dealer fees, and optional equipment, but includes 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. Contrary to prior announcements, Cadillac will not discontinue the CT6 in North America.
