From Car and Driver
Who could accountability General Motors for alternate the Cadillac CT6 in the U.S.? Afterwards all, Cadillac sells added than four times as abounding SUVs these canicule as acceptable commuter cars. But if Cadillac still agency “big sedans” to you, and you were still acquisitive to get your easily on a CT6, there’s a acceptable cardinal of them still available.
The appetite for crossovers and SUVs is allotment of the acumen the CT6 is no more; addition accessible acumen is that it fell abbreviate of abundance compared with rivals including the Mercedes-Benz S-class (12,503 awash in 2019), BMW 7-series (found 8823 U.S. buyers in 2019), and Audi A8 and Genesis G90 (each with 2019 sales in the low 2000s). The CT6 awash 7951 units aftermost year.
GM started bearing the CT6 at its Detroit-Hamtramck accumulation bulb aboriginal in 2016, animating the archetypal Caddy formula: a full-size affluence auto with rear-wheel drive, a bit of a improvement for its affectionate (notwithstanding the front-drive XTS), which was not apparent back the old Fleetwood was discontinued in the backward 1990s.
Unfortunately, sales of the CT6 lagged far abaft those of its taller stablemates. In 2016, Cadillac awash 9169 examples of the CT6 in the United States. In 2017 (its aboriginal abounding year on the market), 10,542. In 2018, that cardinal fell hardly to 9669. And aftermost year, it awash aloof 7952 of the CT6, while affective added than 35,000 Escalades and about 50,000 XT5 crossovers.
With sales falling off, GM appear in November 2018 that the afterward July, it would cease bearing the CT6 at Hamtramck, which is now actuality retooled to body electric vehicles. Cadillac agent Stefan Cross accepted to Car and Driver that, afterwards alternating stays of execution, “CT6 accumulation did end in February as scheduled.”
Some captivated out achievement that, abbreviate of affective CT6 accumulation to addition North American facility, the automaker ability acceptation them instead from China. Through its collective adventure there with SAIC, GM produces the CT6 (among added models) in Jinqiao, Shanghai—but alone with the aboriginal engine, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and alone for bounded consumption. Accumulation was apoplectic there, but alone briefly, because of the pandemic; as China agent for Cadillac David Ni told Car and Driver, “Manufacturing [at] the Cadillac bulb was afflicted by COVID-19 but had been recovered by end of March.”
Unfortunately, Cross said, “There are currently no affairs to accompany added CT6s from China” to the United States, but Cadillac does “still accept some CT6s and CT6-Vs at accessible dealerships.”
Searching GM’s online account database, we begin 694 aboriginal 2020 CT6s sitting on banker lots beyond the United States—including 130 units of the high-performance CT6-V (with the 550-hp Blackwing V-8), and a dozen of the CT6 Platinum (with a detuned 500-hp adaptation of the same). And there are added still-new examples from antecedent archetypal years as well, including 156 from 2019, 23 from 2018, 13 from 2017, and one from 2016. All told, that comes to 887 cartage of assorted archetypal years, trims, and specifications.
At the amount at which CT6s were airtight up aftermost year, that wouldn’t be abundant to aftermost for six weeks of abiding sales, abbreviating admitting they may be. So anybody sitting on the fence over acrimonious up what could be the aftermost acceptable Cadillac auto had bigger get moving.
