2019 Cadillac CT6-V Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

By Brian Wong

Competes with: Audi S8, Mercedes-AMG E63, BMW 750

Looks like: A sleeper car to dust all varieties of luxury sedans, with the only giveaway to its performance focus being a small “V” badge on the back

Drivetrain: 550-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 4.2-liter V-8 and 627 pounds-feet of torque; 10-speed automatic transmission; all-wheel drive

Hits dealerships: TBD

Cadillac has taken the wraps off the 2019 CT6 V-Sport, its flagship sedan’s performance variant boasting an exciting new engine under the hood.

The CT6 is the third Cadillac model to offer a V-Sport variant, joining the CTS and XTS sedans. It also serves as a preview for the other changes to come to the 2019 CT6 lineup as a whole. The CT6 will offer Luxury and Sport trims with unique features as well as new headlight and taillight designs.

Exterior

The CT6 V-Sport looks fairly innocuous — without closer inspection, it looks like a normal sedan. But there are a few touches that hint at the monster lurking underneath the hood: The front has a V-inspired mesh grille and new, horizontally oriented LED headlights. The CT6 V-Sport retains the vertical LED signature lighting of last year’s model, with an LED line dripping off the outside of the headlight and down into the lower fascia. There are also unique lower aero trim pieces, gloss-black side window covers and 20-inch V-Sport-specific wheels.

There are also unique lower aero trim pieces, gloss-black side window covers and 20-inch V-Sport-specific wheels.

Interior

The biggest change inside appears to be the shedding of the touchpad interface for the multimedia system; it’s replaced by a circular knob control with dedicated buttons around it for commonly used features like the audio system, phone or navigation (if equipped). The multimedia screen is still 10.2 inches and has 1080-pixel HD resolution.

Under the Hood

Under the hood of the CT6 V-Sport is a brand-new engine that is exclusive to Cadillac, according to Automotive News. Cadillac calls the engine a “clean-sheet design” with a few unique engineering flourishes that allow it to remain compact enough to fit into the CT6’s engine bay, which otherwise holds a four-cylinder or a V-6.

The twin-turbocharged 4.2-liter V-8 makes dizzying power numbers: 550 horsepower and 627 pounds-feet of torque. The turbochargers actually sit in the middle of the “V” formed by the cylinders, which Cadillac says also helps eliminate turbo lag, as they’re mounted closer. A 10-speed automatic transmission and a retuned all-wheel-drive system with a mechanical limited-slip differential in the rear and revised torque split are both standard. There are also tweaks to the steering and magnetic-ride-control shock absorbers for sportier engagement.

The CT6 V-Sport’s 20-inch wheels are wrapped in summer-only performance tires, developed exclusively for Cadillac. There is also a new 19-inch Brembo brake system — also said to be tailor-made for the CT6 — to bring things to a quick halt when needed.

Safety

Interestingly, Cadillac will not offer its superb Super Cruise system on V-Sport versions of the CT6; it will, however, be offered on the other CT6 trim levels. Further available safety features include forward collision alerts, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, blind spot warnings, lane keep assist, night vision in the instrument panel, around-view monitor, automatic parking assists, front pedestrian detection and a surround-vision recorder, which serves as a front and rear dash cam when driving and activates the 360-degree camera system when the security system is activated. There is also one final new feature available on the 2019 CT6 that’s worth noting: rear pedestrian detection.

No word yet on the 2019 CT6 V-Sport’s price or release date, but I’m champing at the bit to get behind the wheel of one.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
