The Cadillac luxury brand made a lot of headlines in July, thanks to a 1984 Cadillac DeVille hearse being featured in the new Ghostbusters film, as well as the rumor that next year’s Escalade could be getting a 10-speed automatic transmission. However, when it all boils down to it, the brand’s success depends on vehicle sales and Cadillac experienced a 13.8% sales increase during the month of June, with most of that success being attributed to the recently launched CT6 sedan and XT5 crossover.

Now, just months after launching its new flagship sedan, Cadillac has already announced updates for the upcoming 2017 version. For starters, the ‘17 Cadillac CT6 will be available in two new exterior color options, which are Bronze Dune Metallic and Phantom Gray Metallic. Those two color options are available at an extra charge. In addition, the Graphite Black exterior color option has been eliminated for the 2017 model year.

As for the sedan’s interior, the new CT6 will come with an updated version of the CUE infotainment system, which will feature apps like The Weather Channel, Pandora, and iHeart Radio. Moreover, a modified “wash” feature has been added to improve the efficiency of the CT6’s award-winning rear camera technology.

The only changes made to the exterior of the CT6 sedan are new taillights with a darker finish. Furthermore, the 2017 Cadillac CT6 Luxury models that are equipped with the optional Driver Assist Package will get unspecified “front fascia changes.”

The 2017 Cadillac CT6 will be offered with the same engine options as the 2016 version, which means the rumored 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 will not be available for the 2017 model year. However, Cadillac did announce that a more efficient Plug-In Hybrid version of the CT6 will be released later in 2017.
