CADIL­LAC CT6-V

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - New 2020 Vehicle Preview -

The CT6 sedan has al­ready wrapped pro­duc­tion and the CT6-V goes away in early 2020 — Gen­eral Mo­tors’ pre­mium divi­sion is in ma­jor-over­haul mode. Three of its sedans — the CTS, XTS and CT6 — have al­ready re­tired, while the new mid­size CT5 and com­pact CT4 sedans are tak­ing their place. Bar­ring a change of heart from the Cadil­lac brass, the CT6 will exit with a bang and its head held high in the form of a per­for­mance CT6-V model. It’s equipped with a hand­built twin-tur­bocharged V-8, called the Black­wing, that pounds out 550 horse­power and 640 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion sends the torque to all four wheels. Along with the go-fast equip­ment, the CT6-V is loaded with a plethora of re­lated hard­ware, in­clud­ing mag­netic-ride sus­pen­sion, rear­wheel steer­ing and Tour, Sport and Track set­tings that vary the trans­mis­sion, sus­pen­sion and steer­ing func­tions ac­cord­ing to driver pref­er­ences.
