Great Cadillac CT6, CT6-V production ends next month in North America

The Cadillac CT6 received an execution visit earlier this year, but it looks like the luxury sedan will not get another chance. Speed ​​Twitch announces that production for the luxury flagship sedan will be definitively discontinued in January. Shortly thereafter, 814 hourly and wage laborers associated with CT6 production are to receive running papers. We've contacted Cadillac to confirm this information and update the article if something changes.

The CT6 was originally scheduled to die in June 2019, but GM decided to enforce the production of CT6 and Chevrolet Impala by the end of the year. It was believed that the January 2020 was the cutoff, but this report gives the decision a touch of security. It also highlights the future of the affected employees, the vast majority of whom are part of the United Autoworkers Union (UAW). The union members will be offered removal offers for other Michigan or Ohio plants or a buyout. The rest will apparently be unemployed.

Cadillac's CT6 saga is one that many people find rather confusing. The sedan set the stage for the 2016 model year and made some waves with its handsome design, though its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine was out of place in this category as a base model. Just two years later, Cadillac announced a small facelift, followed by the introduction of the CT6-V, which packs the company's 4.2-liter Blackwing twin-turbo V8. Everything seemed good for the future of the CT6, until Cadillac pulled the plug not just on the CT6, but on the entire high-performance V-line as we knew it. The decision to literally kill the CT6 came before the new CT6-V was even up for sale, causing many people to ask what was going on in Cadillac's halls.

But the car will live on in China, where luxury sedans are still in demand.
