We’re sure that CT6 fans have not finished their grief over the death of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in April, this time they have to hear sad news again about the reduced engine options for the big luxury saloon.
AutoVerdict reports that the ordering guide for the 2020 Cadillac CT6 has been released by the American automaker. Based on the information listed there, it seems that the next year’s model will only offer two engine choices, namely a 3.6-liter naturally-aspirated V6 and a 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8; while the available drivetrain is only all-wheel drive, paired with a 10-speed automatic slushbox.
Without counting the V8 powerhouse of the CT6 Platinum, what’s currently available as the top-of-the-line is a 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine. It develops 404 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, which is much higher than the 335-hp and 284 lb-ft of the 3.6-liter naturally-aspirated V6. Both also feature a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
Now that the 3.0-liter twin-turbo is going to be ditched, your best choice in terms of power would be the 4.2-liter V8, although we still don’t know the output figure for the 2020 model as the ordering guide hasn’t revealed it just yet, says AutoVerdict.
It’s only a matter of time until Cadillac actually removes the 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine option from the configurator. As for now, there’s still time if you want to get this variant. We just checked the configurator and it’s still there.
But if you’re reluctant, you can wait for the arrival of the Cadillac CT6 with a Blackwing V8, which will be the most powerful variant for 2020.
