Default Cadillac is doing a 'second installment' of the CT6-V for $92,790

That's $4,000 more than the pre-order price for the same car

After being all but certain the Cadillac CT6 would begin pushing American daisies June 1, the brand said "the CT6 was never meant to be fully on the chopping block." The same day we got that news, Cadillac began taking pre-orders for the CT6-V. Limited to 275 units and costing $88,790 after destination, orders came in so quickly that order books closed only hours later. Turns out the phrase "275 pre-order slots" was another slight miscommunication. Cadillac has announced continued production of the CT6-V, this time costing $92,790.

In February, Cadillac Society confirmed with the automaker that the 275 figure only applied to pre-orders. It isn't clear how many CT6-Vs will be built in what the brand calls the "second installment," but it is clear that buyers who didn't get in early will pay more. Cars Direct was privy to a letter sent to dealers that said pre-order buyers "were rewarded with a special introductory offer by quickly raising their hand."

Those slow on the draw have hopefully used the extra time to fish another $4,000 from their pockets. The elevated price buys the same car that was $88,790 two months ago - nothing has changed but the bottom line. The new MSRP puts more distance between the hot CT6-V and the $89,290 CTS-V. Conversely, the CT6-V with a Blackwing V8 beating 550 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque is now just $4,000 less than the coming Platinum V8 trim, which costs $96,790. That Platinum version gets a detuned Blacking putting out 500 hp and 553 lb-ft.

The vague phrase "second installment" phrase makes us think Cadillac's not committing to a number so it can cap production at will depending on how this more expensive go-round fares. Still, it's good news for anyone who wanted the sedan new and didn't hit the buzzer quickly enough in January.

As if all that weren't surprising enough, GM Authority reported that there's a second-gen CT6 in development. The outlet's sources say the new sedan will move to GM's VSS-R platform, the modular architecture that will replace both the Alpha and Omega platforms. The platform initialism stands for Vehicle Set Strategy - Rear-wheel drive. The car even has a codename: 7ESL, where 7 represents the architecture, E the segment, S the sedan body style, and L the Cadillac brand. Looks like the CT6 will be nothing but surprises this year.

Another interesting bit from Cadillac this morning is that they are not sharing the Blackwing V-8 with any other GM division. The next gen Escalade is also due to get the Blackwing. The C8 Corvette gets a new V-8 rumored to be a larger displacement of this engine. Maybe the larger engine is considered enough different that it gets a new name so as not to share with Cadillac.

Glad to see Cadillac selling out for the CT6V. There performance vehicles seem to be very well done.

Rumored 5.5L I believe it's also the one that is warping the C8 frame.

No surprise if they rename it. Ford's 5.0, 5.2 flat plane, 5.2 Supercharged are called Coyote, Voodoo, and Predator respectively. All have difference but are relatives so to speak

Is this Blackwing gonna be Northstar 2.0, though?

The last of the 90s DeVilles I ever saw driving around were not Northstar powered as those didn't have nearly the reliability of the 4.9 pushrod.

I'm hopeful but we'll see.

Escalade doesn't even need anything else, the pushrod V8 is part of the appeal.
