The new Cadillac CT6 will bring a number of changes to Cadillac, least of which is a new naming structure for all its cars, crossovers and SUV. When it goes on sale in 2015, it will also be the first Cadillac sedan to offer a plug-in hybrid variant.

As Cadillac’s flagship model, the CT6 will go head-to-head against the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 and Lexus LS. The regular model will be powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that will reportedly be the most “powerful six-cylinder gas engine in the segment,” while the aforementioned hybrid is expected to offer “industry-leading fuel economy upwards of 70 mpg equivalent.”

Interestingly, the CT6 will be approximately 53 pounds (69 kg) lighter than the CT6, despite being around eight inches longer. Its body will be mostly composed of a combination of high-strength steel and aluminum.

“We will create with the CT6, the world’s most advanced body structure,” General Motors’ executive vice president Mark Reuss at the company’s 2014 Global Business Conference. “And it’s not aluminum. It’s a stronger, smarter, safer premium luxury vehicle.”

Reuss added that the CT6’s array of technological innovations, including a thru-view mirror that greatly enhances rear visibility, will set it apart from the competition and help make Cadillac the standard of the world once again.

By the looks of things, the new Cadillac CT6 will be a serious contender in the full-size premium car segment, possibly surpassing all of its rivals.

If you need more power, the Premium Luxury variant is powered by the same 2.7-liter turbocharged engine as the CT4-V, but detuned to make 309 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque. Mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, the larger engine generates 325 hp and 380 lb.-ft of torque in the CT4-V.

Cadillac’s SUVs might be getting the V-series treatment, but which one(s)?

Cadillac has plans to expand its lineup of V performance vehicles beyond the CT4-V and CT5-V, according to a new report.

At the press drive event for the new XT6 large crossover, Cadillac boss Steve Carlisle hinted to that the company is considering giving its SUVs some extra oomph!

He is certainly comfortable with the idea, but conceded that they could never replace true sports sedans: “You’re dealing with higher [centers of gravity], weight distributions, everything like that.”

There have been rumors that the next-generation Escalade could arrive with the 6.2L supercharged LT4 V8 that powers the Chevy Camaro ZL1 and Corvette Z06. If true, a 650-hp Escalade will certainly turn some heads.

Other rumors claim a Cadillac is working on a high-performance XT4 crossover, one possibly wearing the V badge. Performance-tuned versions of the XT5 and XT6 seem out of the question, however.
