Report: The new 2016 Cadillac CT6 may get an aluminum body

Automobile received some interesting news recently, hearing that the new 2016 Cadillac CT6 could receive an all-aluminum body to help keep weight down. The magazine reported once before in the past of similar rumors about the CT6, hinting the use of a combination of metals, like “high-strength steel, aluminum, and steel stampings.”

However, there’s contradicting reports from The Detroit News, who spoke to GM’s Mark Reuss, where he said the CT6s is destined to get the “world’s most advanced body structure,” also disclosing “it’s not aluminum.”

In another contradicting report, The Wall Street Journal also ran a headline, “GM Won’t Follow Aluminum Strategy in Future Cars,” where Reuss also said GM won’t be doing anything involving carbon fiber, all-aluminum or all-magnesium. But altogether, the CT6 should still maintain a diet of 220lbs when compared to its competition.
