    • This is the Cadillac getting the new 4.2 liter twin turbo V8 - All wheel drive 2019 CT6 V-Sport

      Cadillac made headlines with their new twin turbocharged 4.2 liter V8. So what model will get the new 550 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque powerplant? The answer is the all wheel drive 10-speed automatic CT6 V-Sport.


      The CT6 is Cadillac's new flagship. This is more of a 7-Series or S-Class competitor than mid-size sport sedan like the CTS. Although, Cadillac still can't seem to get their naming system straight.

      The CT6 V-Sport is not expected to hit the market until 2019. What it will cost is not revealed either. We also do not know how this will impact the future of the CTS-V as a new CT5 model is expected to come into play.

      With all wheel drive, a 10-speed automatic, and 627 lb-ft of torque it should definitely be fun at stoplights though.

        This thing should be fun, but having sat in a well-optioned CT6 recently, it doesn't begin to approach the luxury of an S-Class or 7 Series. Of course, it's also a lot cheaper.

        The CT6 level 2 autonomous Super Cruise looks legit. You don't have to keep touching the steering wheel like a Telsa.

        Cadillac just can't seem to get interiors on par with the Germans.

        Mercedes in particular is just killing it with their interiors right now.

        Yeah they just don't seem to get it...and building a car that's 80% of the price & 75-80% as nice inside isn't going to cut it this class. Quite obviously people are willing to pay for the better German cars, so I don't know who the hell Cadillac thinks they're selling to by building "entry-level" luxury cars for all the respective classes they compete in. People are not shopping on price in these segments, except for maybe the small engine C/3/A4/ATS...and even then...the Germans are well worth the premium, the ATS interior is tragic.

        Also sat in a CTS-V recently...again...not bad...but my 10 year old M5 has better materials in quite a few places. And feels just as solid even now. That's not acceptable.
