2020 Cadillac CT6 Starting Price Jumps Over $8,500

2020 Cadillac CT6 Starting Price Jumps Over $8,500

The 2020 Cadillac CT6 will have a base price of $59,990, or $8,500 higher than the previous 2019 CT6. But the price increase is not for naught, as the large luxury sedan also adds a long list of newly-standardized content to ago along with the not-so-insignificant price increase.

So then, the base Luxury trim level swaps the base engine from the turbo-charged 2.0L LSY I-4 to the naturally-aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX. That change means that the base CT6 now has 98 more horsepower and 26 more pound-feet of torque than the 2019 model.

The base Luxury trim also includes more gear in the cabin, as the Driver Awareness & Convenience Package is now standard equipment, adding in a slew of driver assist features such as blind-spot detection and automatic emergency braking. On its own, the Driver Awareness & Convenience Package represents a $3,500 value.

Higher in the 2020 Cadillac CT6 lineup, we find the Premium Luxury model, which slots in as the mid-range rung in the luxury-oriented CT6 ladder. Pricing for the Premium Luxury is set at $75,490, which is a whopping $12,000 increase over the previous mid-range trim.

However, Cadillac is once again backing the price hike with a number of extra features and value adders, such as the Comfort & Technology Package and the Rear Seat Package, both of which are standard spec for the 2020 model year. The Premium Luxury model also comes standard with the 34-speaker Bose Panaray sound system, as well as the Super Cruise semi-autonomous drive feature.

Adding those features as optional equipment to the previous model year, pricing would jump to just under $78,000, which means the feature standardization for 2020 saves customers a few thousand bucks right up front.

Sitting at the top of the range is the Cadillac CT6 Platinum. Under the hood, the Platinum comes equipped with Cadillac’s twin-turbo 4.2L V8 Blackwing engine, which replaces the previous model year’s twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6. Pricing for the range-topper starts at $97,490, a $700 increase compared to 2019, which is ascribed to the optional, Platinum-exclusive 20-inch wheel option.

Despite Cadillac parent company, General Motors, initially announcing plans to discontinue the CT6 along with closing the Detroit-Hamtramck plant where the car is currently made for North American markets, Cadillac execs have recently back-tracked on those plans. The latest we know is that production of the large sedan will either move to a different facility; alternatively, Cadillac may import the vehicle from China.

  1. Having a normally aspirated V6 engine instead of the turbocharged I4 is much better. The V6 engine will run cooler and quieter (lower RPM), although it may have a lower MPG. The end result is an engine with a longer life.

    • My 2018 “adjusted” CT6 has all road amenities including the quietest V6 I’ve ever heard, driven or owned. G.M.: don’t get rid of your CT6.

  2. A lot of the above noted changes for 2020 make sense. I have a 2019 Platinum CT6 which is a great car.

    However, if had been built in China I would not even considered it. For the 2019 China was the source for 26% of the CT6 car line parts content. Mexico was 22%, US/Canada 38% and the assembly was in Hamtramck, Michigan.

    In 2017 when I purchased a GM crossover I refused to even consider the Buick Envision because it was built in China.

    The cancellation of the CT6 for 2020 never made sense. Then GM came back and said it would be available but the build plant was yet to be determined… All along I felt GM would make it a China built vehicle. The above PR source info is proof.

    I hope I am wrong. The United States bailed out GM not China.

  3. As a long time gm ab and Cadillac owner I will not buy cars if made in china
