New look, engines for 2018 Cadillac CT6

Two years since the launch of Cadillac's flagship sedan, the CT6 is primed for a refresh. It appears that the the F-segment offering will be getting an extensive revamp if one were to base it on the photos our spies have sent us.

Seen testing in Southern Europe, Cadillac engineers putting the CT6 through hot climate testing and likely retuning the suspension system. It is also possible that Cadillac might just offer this large sedan to markets outside the US. As for the new look, our spies told us that it may base its look on the Escala concept from last year's  Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

That means we may see slim headlights on the full-size Caddy, as well as a different front fascia sporting a wider grill and new front bumpers. Judging by the photos, the slim corner daytime running lights will be retained. As for the rest of the car, the body remains untouched with its upright glasshouse and six-window configuration. At the rear, we may see a variation of the Escala's tail lights. It also appears to have a slightly redesigned trunk lid with more emphasis on the shoulder lines. Also present are a set of quad exhaust pipes, just like the current model.

Our spies said that this redesign will bring in a host of new engines to the CT6 range. It will either be a twin-turbo V6, twin-turbo V8 or even a 6.2-liter V8 which is seen in the Corvette Z06. At the moment however, Cadillac has yet to confirm this detail. As for its debut date, it is expected to be revealed at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.
