Cadillac CT6-V Gets Various Changes For 2020 Model Year

Cadillac CT6-V Gets Various Changes For 2020 Model Year

The 2020 Cadillac CT6-V represents the second model year of the V-Series CT6. And for that model year, the large sedan will receive several small but noteworthy changes and updates.

The first is the deletion of the Rear Seat Package (option code Y4Z), which included the following features:

  • Quad-zone climate control
  • Air Ionizer
  • Rear seat infotainment

Hence, the CT6-V can no longer be ordered with these features.

The second change to the 2020 Cadillac CT6-V is the addition of the Driver Assist Package (option code Y66) as standard. The package was optional on the 2019 CT6-V and included:

  • Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Night Vision
  • Forward and Reverse Automatic Braking

As such, all three features become standard for the 2020 Cadillac CT6-V, rounding out the changes and updates for Cadillac’s range-topping sedan.

Initially announced as the CT6 V-Sport before being renamed to CT6-V, the Cadillac CT6-V is the most powerful model of the CT6 sedan range. It features Cadillac’s all-new, hand-built 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 DOHC LTA engine, called Blackwing, rated at 550 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque, paired to a new 10-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels. Other notable features include a special tune to the Magnetic Ride Control suspension system. 

Cadillac previously announced that the CT6 range would be discontinued in North America, but this will not longer take place, as new Cadillac President, Steve Carlisle, along with his boss – GM President Mark Reuss – both announced that the large sedan will remain available, despite plans to shutter the Detroit-Hamtramck plant where the vehicle is currently made. According to Cadillac Society sources, the automaker is currently weighing options of moving production to another North American plant or importing the CT6 from China.

  1. I fail to understand why these items need to be deleted if they are on the 2019, which, by the way, will not land until September. Whywould you even have a 2019 CT6V, if the 2020 CT6’s will be in showrooms a couple of months later…..makes no sense….none of this….

    I, for one, will NEVER, buy a CT6, or any vehicle for that matter, imported from China.

    Everything GM is doing these days makes no sense……from two categories of V’s for Cadillac……to killing the Camaro…….to importing your flagship automobile from China……to producing 3 SUV’s (CT4, CT5, and CT6) with absolutely NO “WOW” factor…….to introducing the C8 in Los Angeles, instead of Detroit……. to adding three options to the 2020 CT6V, that are already standard on my 2018 CT6 Platinum.

    Lets face it, the only thing that separates my 2018 CT6 Platinum from the 2019/2020 CT6V, is the V8 engine…..No, my CT6 is better equipped with Super Cruise, Panaray, Night Vision, Forward and Reverse semi-Aniline leather, and Advance Adaptive Cruise Control….

  2. That was suppose to say…..Forward and Reverse Automatic Breaking….

  3. Did not know GM is killing the Camaro.

  4. I think the CT6 is a beautiful car, but with an $8,500 base price increase and little or no advertising, which is the norm for Cadillac, the 2020 model will be DOA.

    • EXACTLY!……and this will give Mary Barra, and the rest of the “do nothings” who run GM, a legit excuse for killing the CT6…

  5. I’m glad this beautiful automobile is still in production but what bothers me most is the mention “the automaker is currently weighing options of moving production to another North American plant or importing the CT6 from China.” I don’t have a problem as long as the car is mostly Made in the USA . When and if the car is imported from China I will abandon Cadillac as a Brand. If the US is not good enough to build their cars in then, Cadillac will not be the Brand for me.

  6. The website says VERY limited availability. How many will they be building, and who do you have to know to get one?

    • LLK – good question. We tried getting exact production figures and couldn’t even get a ballpark number. They are being kept very much hush-hush.

      • Thanks Alex.

  7. By the way…….how many 2019 CT6’s have you seen on the road, at your local Cadillac dealership and we are 10 months into the 2019 sales year. and those poor bastards that ordered the 2019 CT6V are STILL waiting for them……

  8. They waste time and effort fiddling with the option packages instead of working on an interior (other than “Faded Black”) that looks like it belongs in a $90,000 vehicle. If any of that interior is actually leather, then GM has perfected the art of making leather look like cheap plastic.

  9. Add my name to the list of: “I’m outta here if the CT6V is made in China!”

  10. I would love e the opportunity to reserve a v-class Cadillac
