Second-Gen Cadillac CT6 In Black: Real World Photo Gallery

The 2024 Cadillac CT6 made its debut for the Chinese market earlier this year, breathing new life into the luxury nameplate with an all-new second generation. Cadillac Society has kept an eye out for the new CT6 on public roads, and we recently spotted this example finished in black.

To start, the second-generation Cadillac CT6 features an all-new design over its first-generation counterpart. Clearly visible in this vehicle’s striking black livery, the grille features a new design that mimics the shape of the Cadillac crest itself, framed by new vertical LED headlamps. Here, we also have new horizontal daytime running lights (DRLs) extending down either side of the front fascia, drawing the eye to the grille.

The profile shows that the second-gen CT6 has adopted a sleek, fastback-like profile, straying from the prior model’s more traditional three-box sedan-like shape. The new model features a smooth transition from the slope of the rear window to the deck lid and integrated spoiler. There’s also an all-new, unique center high mounted brake light (CHMSL) at the rear that spans the full width of the deck lid, emphasizing its width along with boomerang-shaped taillights, mimicking the shape of the headlights. 

Slightly visible in these photos is the interior of the all-new Cadillac CT6, which is tan in the case of this model. Not seen is the curved 33-inch display that spans the digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel to the center infotainment screen. This unique screen is pulled straight from the Cadillac Lyriq.

At launch, the all-new Cadillac CT6 is offered exclusively with in rear-wheel-drive with fifty-fifty weight distribution, harnessing 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. 

At this time, we know of no plans to bring the revamped CT6 to any markets beyond China, meaning that the all-new model is unlikely to make landfall in the United States, despite there (seemingly) being a market for it.

  1. There is a market for the CT6, but those buyers have to go for the foreign brands to get a luxury sedan. Offer the CT6 as an ordered vehicle and you will see this market grow.

    • I don’t like the power plant though. Give me a nice American XT6 any day.

  2. The Cadillac brand should not have abandoned this larger sedan market in the USA. Big mistake!

  3. If Cadillac wants to sell the next Gen CT6 in the US it will have to market the product. The 1st Gen CT6 was never marketed…I don’t recall ever seeing and print Ad or a TV spot for the CT6. As a result, they collected dust on dealer lots. The 1st Gen was a great car and a good alternative to a BMW, Mercedes or Audi, but Cadillac kept it a secret. ADVERISING WORKS!!! Cadillac needs to hire someone who understands that!.

    • I agree. I lucked up and saw mine at the dealership when I took my other one in for service. Otherwise I never would have known.

  4. Too bad it won’t be available in the US. I am enjoying my 2019 CT6 Sport with 3.0L TT and SuperCruise!

    • Agree. I would get one tomorrow if available in the US and all wheel drive. Why is Cadillac not being market sensitive and responsive?

  5. The side view looks like the 2000 – 2020 Chevy Impala.

  6. We love our 2-CT6’s…a 2017 Premium and a 2020 Premium Luxury. Both with AWD, AWS, Bose Panaray sound system and SuperCruise. Too bad that Cadillac/GM never really marketed the car as they do with all the fugly CUV/SUV’s. Our dealer couldn’t keep a CT6 on the lot when they were available. We special ordered both of ours so we knew we could get them. We waited 6 months for our 2020 and a manufactures rep tried to get the dealership to give it to him as his corporate car. Then he saw it was a bought and paid for car. The CT5 and CT4 are not luxury sedans as they can’t fit 4 adults in any type of comfort. Power is anemic and ride quality is horrible.

    Bring back the CT6 and market the cars. We get asked all the time what kind of car it is and where can they get one. My reply for getting on is to go to the only country Cadillac and Mary want to do business with, China.

    We still have a 2002 Cadillac DHS Northstar with just over 100K miles and a 2001 Corvette C5 convertible under 50K miles, so I put my money where my mouth is. Now if GM, Mary and the marketing departments would only listen.

    • When/If the CT6 was brought back, forget about the anemic turbo 4-cylinder. At minimum a V6 and go up from there with a V-Series as the top dog.

  7. Oh, GM…you sneaky little folks…I have the original “V” version and LOVE it but you click bait me with this stuff….for CHINA….WTF!!!???

  8. I hate to say it, but IMO, the first gen and facelift exteriors were a lot more elegant.

  9. Why is GM only sell this car in awful CHINA. I am on my second CT6 and would love to purchase a third. GM needs to pay attention to the USA customers. They stabbed us large car buyers in the back when they got rid of the CT6. There are people out there who still want them. GM is alienating customers. If they don’t produce a car like the CT6 I am going to Mercedes or Audi or Genesis for their larger car in my next purchase.

  10. I wanted the CT6 but didn’t have room in my garage. I got an ATS. Just traded it for a 2022 G90. Way to blow it, GM
