Next-Gen 2024 Cadillac CT6 Makes Its Debut In China

Next-Gen 2024 Cadillac CT6 Makes Its Debut In China

The all-new, next-generation 2024 Cadillac CT6 has finally made its official debut in China in late May.

The second-generation Cadillac CT6 has been revamped from the ground up, right down to the design of the chevron on the front grille, which mirrors the shape of the Cadillac crest. New vertical LED headlamps are complimented by horizontal daytime running lights (DRLs), while a unique center mount brake light at the rear spans the full width of the luxury sedan’s deck lid to emphasize its width, which measures in at 1,890 mm, or approximately 74.4 inches end-to-end. 

While the vehicle’s exterior is certainly noteworthy, the most significant changes lie within the cockpit of the all-new CT6. An all-new, curved 33-inch screen relays important information to the driver in the digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel. The portion of the screen that stretches into the center stack allows occupants access to infotainment controls, thanks to a redesigned user interface.

Said screen is complemented by dark ash wood and warm metallic accents throughout, and a set of AKG speakers with brushed dark tinted speaker grilles to complete the luxurious look. A 26-color ambient lighting system sets the perfect tone for any drive, coupled with the Jet Black and Whisper Beige interior colorway. 

The second-generation Cadillac CT6 feature Super Cruise, the luxury marque’s semi-autonomous highway driver assist feature, along with a host of other assist technologies such as Hands-On Lane Centering Assist and Automated Parking Assist.

For the time being, the CT6 is offered exclusively with rear-wheel-drive with fifty-fifty weight distribution, and harnesses the luxury marque’s turbocharged 2.0L I4 engine (production code LSY), which is rated at 233 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission. The luxury marque’s vaunted Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) technology, now in its fourth iteration, handles suspension duties.

Upon launch, three trim levels are available, including Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum, while a Sport trim is expected to join the lineup in the future.

Starting prices for all four trims of the 2024 Cadillac CT6 in China:

  • 2024 CT6 Base: 359,700 yuan (approximately $50,860 USD)
  • 2024 CT6 Luxury: 389,700 yuan ($55,090 USD)
  • 2024 CT6 Premium Luxury: 409,700 yuan ($57,900 USD)
  • 2024 CT6 Platinum: 469,700 yuan ($66,400 USD)

As Cadillac Society was first to report over a year ago, the all-new CT6 is not expected to make its way to North America, which is quite unfortunate, in our opinion.

  1. Can anyone recommend the best used CT6 year. A mechanic on YouTube recommended 2016 and up without the 3.6 engine. I’ve been looking however, there seems to be more 3.6 engines available that not. I heard there were problems with the 3.6 engines, also the twin turbo if they breakdown and need repair, it would be costly..

    • I had a 2016 CT6 Platinum with the 3.6 v6, the car was great, it had 95000+ miles when I traded it. I did not have the frist issue with the motor or transmission in this car! Any CT6 you buy, find a good after market warranty. I currently havve a 2019 CT6 Platinum 4.2TT (Blackwing V8) both of the CT6’s have been great cars.

    • I have a 2017 CT6 Premium and a 2020 Premium Luxury with the 3.6. Both are AWD, AWS and Super Cruise. The 2020 has the cut down to a V4 when on the highway. I have never had an issue with either of the car’s powertrain wise or anything else.

      Look for a low mileage, best equipped that you can find from a dealer. Stay away from Carvana.

  2. In China and nothing is exactly the same. This car should be sold elsewhere.

  3. Finally Cadillac is engaged and building great vehicles. Bring the CT6 to US, all Gm is doing is training China in how to copy and beat them with a domestic China startup. There is a demand for an upmarket sedan in US, just look at Mercedes,Genesis, Audi,Lexus, Lucid,etc. Build the right vehicle in the US, invest in the attention to detail and show the committement and your customers will return

  4. Cadillac is missing the local need for a large luxury sedan. Tbe original CT6 was excellent as other posts here describe it. Plus the hybrid CT6 used the Chevy Volt technology. Cadillsc must return the CT6 to us or else buyers will go for importd.

    • I have a 2018 premium luxury with super cruise. My sediments exactly!
      I’m waiting for something better.

  5. I would love to see what the headlights/daytime running lamps look like while on during the day and night.

  6. We have two 2018 CT6. Luxury and Premium Luxury. We are both mechanical engineers and appreciate that this car, having a lot of aluminum parts, handles like our old CTS. I think GM will bring it back as an electric. The V8 has to be an incredible vehicle. Too much $ for us, but if you can get your hands on a V8 you will probably never it go. You can spend much more money on the imports and get a ‘better’ car for sure. But we don’t need that high school ‘mine is bigger than yours’ stuff. The interior of the Chinese 2024 is super nice! When we bought the first one I went deep on researching the manufacturing methods since I have a PhD in that. Some really cool engineering went into the assembly. I know our Cadillac dealer tells us every week people come into to by a new one to find it discontinued. CT5 is not even close. Exterior styling is classy, sporty and definitely not a German or Japanese car. No other big sedan looks like our cars. Got $140K? Go buy a Merc, its a different kind of vehicle than the CT6. We got certified low mileage with warranty for under $40K before the prices went haywire two years ago. Anyway, we really like cars, daily drivers in New England.
