Cadillac stopped building the CT6 at its Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant back in January of this year – spelling the end of the road for the short-lived luxury sedan. Now GM fans have the opportunity to own the last CT6 to roll off the production line at the factory after the vehicle popped up for sale at Fitzgerald Cadillac in Frederick, Maryland.
The last CT6, which has the VIN 1G6KB5RS9LU112140, is painted Satin Steel Metallic (production code G9K) and features a Jet Black interior (production code 4AA) and the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 engine (production code LGX). A Luxury trim model, it is modestly equipped and features the available Driver Awareness Package (production code HS1), which adds the Safety Alert Seat, Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking and other active safety goodies.
Fitzgerald Cadillac was originally asking $60,805 for the privilege of owning the last CT6, but it has since lowered the price to $58,805. The Cadillac CT6 has not been flying off dealer lots since going out of production earlier this year, but perhaps the unique backstory behind this final example will help it attract a buyer sooner rather than later.
The last CT6 may have already rolled off the line at Detroit-Hamtramck, but the sedan remains in production at GM’s Jinqiao plant just outside of Shanghai, where numerous other Cadillac models are also built for local consumption. While sedan sales have largely been supplanted by crossovers and SUVs in North America, full-size four-doors like the CT6 remain popular in China.
For now, North American Cadillac customers who want a big sedan can look ahead to the new Celestiq – an upcoming electric four-door that will be hand-built by Cadillac and is expected to cost $200,000 or more.
