Cadillac CT6 isn’t axed in the US after all

When GM announced it would end production of the Cadillac CT6 at its Detroit-Hamtramck plant on June 1, 2019, we all assumed it was axed in the US.


It seems like that isn’t necessarily the case.

“From the very beginning, we never said that CT6 was going away, because we’re very keen on launching Blackwing and Super Cruise and all those sort of things,” Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac, said to Automotive News.

Both Mark Reuss, president of GM, and Carlisle stated the company is evaluating ways to keep the CT6 on sale in the US after production ends at Detroit-Hamtramck.

The two most likely options are moving production to another facility, or importing the car from China, although Carlisle said that “would be the least-preferred option”.

The Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Impala and Chevrolet Volt, which were all “deallocated” as part of the company’s massive reorganisation in November 2018 will still be withdrawn from the US market, but may remain on sale through until 2020.
