Cadillac has always been known for their large cars. However, the Cadillac CT6 seems that it doesn’t fill the standards anymore. So, there wasn’t any better solution than to launch the 2019 Cadillac CT8.
The 2019 Cadillac CT8 is a premium luxury sedan with a lot of space inside. While German cars tend to be more technologically advanced and more luxurious, the truth is that there is still room for the spacious 2019 Cadillac CT8.
The 2019 Cadillac CT8 is based on the concept of the Escala that was launched at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
So, let’s take a closer look at all the 2019 Cadillac CT8 details.
2019 Cadillac CT8 Release Date
While there is no official date for the release, we believe that the 2019 Cadillac CT8 should be launch between the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019.
2019 Cadillac CT8 Price
Just like the release date, there is no official price just yet. However, taking into account the CT6 price and all the features that we believe the 2019 Cadillac CT8 will include, we are not expecting to see a starting price inferior to $90,000.
2019 Cadillac CT8 Redesign and Changes
We believe that the 2019 Cadillac CT8 exterior will include many hints that were able to be spotted on the Escala concept shown back in 2016. However, which ones it will feature it’s harder to say.
We believe that the 2019 Cadillac CT8 will have a slightly toned-down exterior. On the front, we are hoping to see larger and more efficient LEDs that should probably be taller. However, this will depend on the grille and the fenders design as well. While we are not expecting to see a different grille, the 2019 Cadillac CT8 exterior should be more conventional.
The beltline of the 2019 Cadillac CT8 should be more pronounced as well as the side mirrors should increase their size.

2019 Cadillac CT8 Specs
If Cadillac follows the Escala concept, it should be using the same platform – the Omega.
While this is nothing official yet, we are expecting to see the 2019 Cadillac CT8 coming with a 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, the same that the CT6 uses. However, according to most rumors, this engine should be improved and should be capable of producing, at least, 500 of horsepower.
In terms of the transmission, the 2019 Cadillac CT8 should come equipped with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and both all.wheel and rear-wheel drives should be available.
2019 Cadillac CT8 Interior
Inside the cabin of the 2019 Cadillac CT8, we are expecting to see many differences. After all, we just can’t forget that we are talking about the top of the line Cadillac. SO, it really needs to show a lot of comfort, high-quality materials, and luxury.
According to most rumors, you should get a huge touchscreen display that should be wrapped in genuine wood veneer or in leather. Then, you should also have a smaller display that will serve as an instrument cluster.
The 2019 Cadillac CT8 is comfortable and roomier for up to 4 passengers. All seats should include heated and cooling functions as well as enhanced adjustability. They may even have some massage settings included, especially the front seats.
As standard features, we believe that the 2019 Cadillac CT8 will include a premium sound system, a multi-zone climate control system, compatibility with YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu, among many others.
