2019 Cadillac CT8 Price, Specs and Release Date
It was in 2014, Johan de Nysschen joined Cadillac. After that, they committed to having a massive attack on the premium market by offering a brand-new car in several niches. They promised to have several new, large sedans to deal with all popular models from BMW and Mercedes-Benz. A year later, Cadillac released the CT6. It sounds like no one can stop them. They planned to make a larger sedan which will be the new 2019 Cadillac CT8.
The new Cadillac CT8 2019 is the upcoming flagship, but the company launched the preview in the form of the Escala Concept. It happened at 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. They displayed the new design language that makes it different from the Ciel and Elmiraj. From the concept, it is possible to have a slightly toned-down design with several revisions. The front has larger headlamps with more efficient LED technology in an extended design to the fenders and the grille. It has a more conventional look with the chrome strip touch for between its headlamps. The wide lower grille, as well as the vertical LED lights, completes its style. The sedan has more pronounced beltline on its sides. At the bottom of the doors, there will be no more big recess available.
2019 Cadillac CT8 Interior
The interior will highlight its style to make it different from other lineups from Cadillac. The company will add new luxury features and latest GM’s infotainment technology as well as the safety systems. A big touchscreen display will complete the dashboard with leather cover and original wood veneer. There is also a smaller display for the instrument cluster. It has a high level of comfort with four seats for both driver and passengers. The seats have improved adjustability, massage, heated and cooling features. Nappa leather is the cover for all four seats.
Speaking about the features, it has a multi-zone climate control system, premium sound system, able to connect a video streaming device for the rear seat, smartphone connectivity, Wi-Fi and more. It is different from the CT6 because the 2019 CT8 has the semi-autonomous technology to battle with Mercedes-Benz.
Under the hood, Cadillac revealed the Escala concept with Omega platform in the CT6. We assume the new Cadillac CT8 will use the same way. In another word, it is possible to use the same engine as the 2017 CT6 which is the V8 engine 4.2-liter twin-turbo. The output is still unknown but the twin-turbo V6 unit 3.0 liter can make 400 hp in the CT6. It means the V8 should make close to 500 hp. They will also use the V8 engine for the high-performance model to answer the Mercedes-AMG S63 for 600 hp. It is available in both AWD and RWD with the eight-speed auto gearbox.
