Cadillac CT6 vs CT6-V

By: Bayway Cadillac of The Woodlands | Published 10/07/2020


Welcome to the world of Cadillacs. If you’re searching for the luxury full-size sedan that you deserve, you’re in good hands with the 2020 CT6 series. But which version to choose? Here are a few key differences and similarities between the CT6 and CT6-V.


The biggest difference between the 2020 Cadillac CT6 and the 2020 Cadillac CT6-V is that the V series come equipped with more powerful engines. The 2020 CT6-V features a twin-turbo 4.2-liter V-8 engine that supplies an amazing 550 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. These are massive power outputs from a full-size sedan. To harness this power, the CT6-V also gives drivers capable Brembo brakes and magnetic ride control

That being said, the standard CT6 is a powerful performer in its own right. The 2020 model gives you a choice between two engines: a 3.6-liter V-6 that delivers 335 horsepower and 285 pound-feet of torque or a turbocharged 4.2-liter V-8 engine that produces 500 horsepower and 574 pound-feet of torque. What’s more, the CT6 also offers features such as an adjustable all-wheel-drive system, selectable drive modes, and electronic precision shifting. For the average luxury sedan driver, the CT6 is more than sufficient when it comes to providing a thrilling driving experience.

Driver-Assist Tech

One desirable CT6 feature missing in the CT6-V is the Super Cruise technology. Cadillac’s advanced smart cruise control system turns the CT6 into a self-driving car on compatible highways. This feature is the first truly hands-free driver-assist system in the world and is a good look at what the future of personal vehicles will offer to drivers.

However, both models offer other advanced driver-assist safety systems that allow drivers to be more ready to react to potential dangers on the road. These systems include automatic pedestrian braking, forward collision alert, a back-up camera, and a lane change alert with side blind-zone alert.

Luxury Interiors

As you move up through the 2020 CT6’s trim levels — the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum — you’ll find more elegant touches and exciting features to enjoy. The Luxury is already decently equipped with heated leather-upholstered seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and active noise cancellation to keep every ride luxuriously comfortable. Moving up to the Premium Luxury model will give you more technology features such as a surround-sound 34-speaker Bose sound system and a rear-row entertainment system. The Platinum’s big change is the upgraded engine, but its interior features are much the same as the Premium Luxury’s.

On the other hand, the CT6-V offers one trim level. This sole model adds to the CT6’s sporty nature with carbon fiber accents and some exterior upgrades, but mainly focuses on performance features. Think of it as the next step up in power from the CT6 Platinum.
