Cadillac’s Mark Reuss is also GM’s executive vice president for global product development and he recently sat down with AutoBlog, where Reuss hinted that the new CT6 could be sent to the V finishing school to make a high-performance variant.
In the interview, Reuss said the CT6’s Omega platform, which is loosely based off of the CTS’s and ATS’s Alpha platform, is more than capable of handling extra power and grunt. Though similar to BMW’s position with the idea of an M7, Cadillac’s not sure if there’s a market for a CT6-V.
And this is despite the fact that the Jaguar XJR, Mercedes-Benz S-Class AMG, Audi S8, and Maserati Quattroporte exist to fill this niche in the full-size market.
Regardless, the CT6 is expected to come with Caddy’s all-new 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 good for 400hp and 400 lb-ft of torque while a V8 version is expected to surface later on.
