  1. I don't worry about 0 to 60 or raw horsepower that much. As long as the power is smooth, instant, and "sufficient", the rest of the experience matters more.
  2. it started at $51k at the beginning of the '19 model year. Then they canned the base model with the 2.0T.... now they're bringing a base model back, but with V6 and AWD.
  3. I didn't post this story because it's not gonna happen.
  4. Starships were meant to fly! That is no longer true ever since scientists have discovered bacteria that burp hydrogen.
  5. Yeah, sorry, that is a little confusing. The CT6 started 2019 model year with a 2.0T and a $51k starting price. They dropped the 2.0T in the meantime.
  6. The changes are for 2020. They dropped the base model for the rest of 2019. The lowest trim you can get now is Premium Luxury.
  7. The Cadillac CT6 has been in the news a lot lately. First it was potentially canceled as its home factory in the U.S. is slated for closure. Then there was the Cadillac Blackwing V8. Most recently it has dropped both the base 2.0T 4-cylinder and the mid-range (now that there is a V8) 3.0 twin-turbo V6. With all of those changes, there is bound to be some price changes to accompany them. For 2020, the CT6 will see a base price rise of $8,500 over the 2019 model to $59,900. With that rise, the base engine becomes the 3.6 liter V6 and AWD standard. It is also adding about $3,500 worth of active safety equipment as standard. Moving up to the Premium Luxury model will add $12,000 to the price tag but comes with Cadillac's famous Super Cruise automated driving system, the rear seat package, the Comfort and Technology package, and the 34-speaker Panaray sound system. At $75,490, that's actually a $2,500 discount on those packages over the 2019 model. The top model, the CT6 Platinum will come standard with the Blackwing V8, replacing the 3.0 twin-turbo on the spec sheet. It also gains 20-inch wheels that were optional last year. While the future of the CT6 is murky, the fact that GM continues to make improvements to the model gives us hope that it will live on.

  9. I don't mind the engine so much. I'd rather a 301hp V8 that is buuuuuuter smooth than a turbo V6 that I have to wait for the lag before I get my power
  10. Mercedes is staying in the taxi cab market for a long while. It's that volume that keeps the lights on and the only way Mercedes can survive. Cadillac doesn't need to build for the taxi market.... Chevy can do that. (though local taxis seem to have gone Nissan/Hyundai)
  11. With a different face, I could totally be into this vehicle.
