Although the Cadillac CT6-V and Cadillac CTS-V share the same general approach of combining top-shelf luxury with high-power engines and impressive driving dynamics, there are also plenty of differences between the two models. For example, sizing, platform, modernity, and technology are just a few of the areas where the two models diverge. Even so, pricing for these two performance luxury sedans on the used car market is surprisingly similar.
Looking over data gathered from AutoTrader.com, prices for used 2019 Cadillac CT6-V models and used 2019 Cadillac CTS-V models averaged out at roughly $80,000 for both vehicles.
All models analyzed were from the 2019 model year and were located in the U.S., with data collected in November of 2020.
As we can see, prices for a used 2019 Cadillac CTS-V range between $75,000 and $90,000, depending on mileage. Meanwhile, prices for a used 2019 Cadillac CT6-V range between $74,000 and $90,000, also depending on mileage.
This should be particularly interesting for anyone considering to purchase one of the two performance luxury sedans. That’s because, despite the similarity in pricing, these two models are also quite different. The primary difference is the way in which both four-doors achieve their impressive performance: the third-gen CTS-V makes use of a supercharged 6.2L Small Block overhead valve / push-rod V8 (production code LT4) good for 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. By comparison, the CT6-V is powered by a much more modern twin-turbo dual overhead cam (DOHC) V8 codenamed Blackwing (production code LTA), making 550 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque.
Shifting duty in the CTS-V is done by an 8-speed automatic driving only the rear wheels, while the CT6-V uses a more advanced ten-speed automatic sending power to all four wheels by way of an all-wheel-drive system.
Another key difference is that the CT6-V is also significantly larger, with a wheelbase measuring in at 122.4 inches on to an overall length of 205.5 inches, as compared to the 114.6-inch wheelbase and 195.5-inch overall length of the CTS-V.
The CT6-V is also significantly newer than the CTS-V, going into production for the 2019 model year compared to the 2015 model year for the third-gen CTS-V. Finally, the CT6 offers cutting-edge technology not available in the CTS, such as Super Cruise, Cadillac’s semi-autonomous drive system.
Nevertheless, Cadillac Society analysis reveals that pricing for these two models is surprisingly close on the used car market – for now, at least.

So even the CT6-V has a steep depreciation curve. The values of the 4 and 6 cylinder cars dropped like large rocks. I’ve seen 2017 premium luxury models with low miles for $35k. The Market apparently prefers the Chevy powered CTS-V to the less powerful Blackwing engine.
Well I hope that doesn’t happen for the ct6v , the 4 and the 6 i can see that happening with the times we are in. The ct6v is special and should hold its value.
It is happening! Just look at the chart.
I don’t believe Super Cruise was available on the CT6-V, only on the Platinum.
Well I have seen a few platinum trim ct6’s with V badges in ads.
Is cadillac ever going to nring back corning lights? I liked these especially livig in a rural area at night..
They already have. Optional on CT4 and CT5. Check the Cadillac website.
I will have a “beta test” of sorts soon….my spanking new CT6-V, t-boned and is sitting in a heap, just shy of a year…Liberty Mutual THINKS it can be fixed (with a damaged frame) and we have been waiting for parts for 4 plus months…word is GM will never have them, but we wait…meanwhile, I LEASED what might have been the last one on earth…identical math to the first purchase…if car #1 does get “fixed” I will be selling it…it will never be the same…so, a year old and damaged but “repaired”…that will be interesting….
OUCH !!!!! Damn that’s hard to read. I’m so sorry for you!
update….they just totaled it today….GM has ZILCH parts for the aluminum frame support…a warning to not only “V” owners but all Caddy folks….between factory closings and shipping problems…parts are a major issue…one CT6 base waited 9 months for a support part…they had to custom make it…9 months…wow…
Interestingly, a good percentage prefer the CT6-V over the CTS-V. So why several on the used-car market at this moment for the CT6-V? This car is more of a keeper same as the CTS-V.
Agree, the CT6-V should be more of a keeper in long run. Folks (re: price column), due to the lack of marketing, have little info i.e. hand built engine, AWD, 4wheel cornering, etc. thus more want. My 2019 has 1850 miles on it, have the letter from Cad. Pres., drawing, never installed window sticker….it will re recognized down the rd.
