Cadillac CT8 Specifications
This grand sedan was planned to be built on the Omega platform, the same platform on released CT6, providing lightest exterior body to drivers. The sedan would be empowered by twin turbo V6 engine for powerful performance, nice top speed, and excellent acceleration rate. The development emphasizes on premium ride, giving the sedan luxurious cabin details, providing performance as well as elegant comfort at once. This grand sedan has everything an ultimate car should have. Many competitors was reported to envy this development as Cadillac seemed to manage to put the best technology on a grand luxury sedan. Unfortunately, buyers will never touch this car.
Cadillac decided to cancel the sedan and its title as the flagship vehicle of the brand. This report came yesterday, Tuesday April 6, 2016 as tweeted by Autoline. The CT6 has been released as luxurious speedy sedan, leading the performance on its class. However, Cadillac will not proceed to release the CT8 this year or during the following years. Despite the regretful situation, Cadillac ensures progress and development in delivering the best vehicle on its range for drivers. There will be 11 new models from the automaker to release from now to 2020. It means drivers should welcome many more surprises from Cadillac.
This terrible news has been broad-casted wide and vast since yesterday, highlighting almost every news on auto market today. However, Cadillac hasn’t issued any official announcement and confirmation on this regard. We should expect them to tell the entire details very soon.
However, many suspects it as marketing refined decision, responding to huge increase on SUV sale numbers recently. Buyers seem to be more interested in buying SUVs instead of any other line of cars. Maybe, Cadillac is making a safe turn to ensure sale numbers for the following years.
Although many interested buyers and drivers will be highly disappointed to this improvement, Cadillac promises the same excellence every year, so we should expect a “cure” from this incident. It appears that the competitors, BMW 7 series and Mercedes-Benz S Class will get better sale number after Cadillac CT8 was canceled.
