Cadillac to rename its models, flagship sedan will be called the CT6 image

The North American based automaker Cadillac has officially announced that the new flagship sedan will be called the CT6, once it will be hitting the market.

Cadillac has been pretty quiet on its new flagship sedan and now, all of a sudden, the company has decided to reveal its name – CT6. This is part of a strategy which will eventually change the names of the entire lineup. The new Cadillac CT6 will be rivaling models such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the BMW 7-Series or the Audi A8 and it is believed to go on sale sometimes next year.

“Using the lessons learned from our dynamic ATS and CTS product lines, we have developed an entirely new vehicle architecture for the CT6. It will employ a mixed material philosophy that combines the best and most efficient components optimized for each area of this new top-of-the-range car”, said the executive chief engineer, Travis Hester.

The upcoming Cadillac CT6 will be put together in Detroit as part of a 384 million USD investment which was made in the Detroit-Hamtramck plant. Production of the model will begin in the fourth quarter of 2015. More details on the flagship sedan are limited for the moment and will probably be announced before the production will be kicking in.
