2019 Cadillac CT6: Specs Released for New 2.0-Liter Engine
The 2019 Cadillac CT6 sedan will come with a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and the specs have finally been revealed.
This engine will come standard on rear-wheel drive Luxury and Premium Luxury trims. It’s rated for 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. No EPA fuel economy estimates are available yet.
Compared to the previous four-cylinder engine offered with the CT6, the new one actually offers less horsepower (237 vs. 265) and less torque (258 vs. 295 lb-ft).
However, thanks to more efficient performance, drivers might not notice those slightly lower numbers. The new engine’s maximum torque is achieved at 1,500 rpm, significantly better than the old engine’s 3,000 rpm. The new engine is also paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission instead of an eight-speed.

The new 2.0-liter is one of several engines available on the 2019 Cadillac CT6. The next step up is a 3.6-liter V6 that puts out 335 horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque. It comes standard on all-wheel drive Luxury and Premium Luxury trims.
The Platinum and Sport trims feature a 3.0-liter twin turbo engine that cranks out 404 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The high-performance CT6-V comes with a new 4.2-liter twin turbo V8 that delivers a fearsome 550 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque.
One engine the CT6 will not be offering is a hybrid. Cadillac recently announced that its 2019 lineup won’t include the CT6 Plug-In model.
