The North American based automaker Cadillac has recently detailed part of the production process of the upcoming CT6 flagship sedan.
The development of a brand new flagship sedan by Cadillac, the so-called CT6, or previously named the LTS, is no longer a surprise as the carmaker has already confirmed such as model, even before the introduction of the new CTS-V performance sedan, but what comes is something new is the detailed manufacturing process, partially at least, of the brand new model. The new Cadillac CT6 will be put together at the Detroit Hamtramck assembly plant in Michigan, which has gone through some significant revisions in order to prepare for the models’ arrival, with a new 138,000 square feet foot shop, 205 robots and new tooling, as part of the 300m USD investment.
The upcoming Cadillac CT6 will be made using aluminum arc welding, structural adhesive, patented aluminum spot welding technology and so on. The flagship sedan which will be put together by Cadillac in the near future will not be rivaling vehicles such as the BMW 7-Series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class or the Audi A8, but it will actually stand in size between a 5-Series and a 7-Series, with a future model, coming in a few years, being similar in size to the popular European sedans mentioned above. The new Cadillac CT6 is expected to be officially presented to the public at the 2015 New York Auto Show, this April, but it will apparently be fully revealed on the 31st of March.
