The network has a review on the powerful sedan Cadillac CT6-V 2020

Bloggers were able to get one copy of the American news and conduct its test drive. The car has a 4.2-liter V8 engine rated at 550 hp. power. According to the plans of the company’s management, the start of sales of the new items was scheduled for January 2020, but this decision was canceled.

  The CT6-V is the Cadillac flagship sedan that combines the power of the newly developed Twin-Turbo V8 engine with the sophistication of a modern luxury sedan. Due to GM’s new sedan policy, Cadillac, which is part of the group, has decided to cancel the CT6-V, which was previously scheduled for January 2020. The Throttle House team got behind the wheel of this car to see how good the CT6-V is.

 The Cadillac CT6-V has a starting price of $ 92,790 and comes standard with the recently launched 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, dubbed Blackwing.

This all-new V8 was specifically designed for use on the CT6-V, where it produces 550 horsepower and 867 Nm. All this low-frequency torque is created thanks to a design with a v-shaped engine arrangement, which places the turbines between the engine cylinders to improve temperature control and eliminate turbo-delays.

This impressive new Blackwing V8 is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The same transmission is installed in the Ford Mustang sports coupe and the Chevy Silverado full-size pickup truck, but, according to the guys from Throttle House, it still cannot compete on equal terms with the German counterparts that are installed in direct competitors to the American CT6-V. This box is reportedly lacking in responsiveness.

 Cadillac also uses an all-wheel drive system that adjusts the separation of torque according to the selected driving mode. So, for example, choosing Touring, you will get a distribution of 60% of the moment on the rear wheels, in sports mode – 80% goes back, and finally, in Track mode, 95% of the torque goes to the rear axle. These various driving modes also affect gearbox programming, steering and suspension stiffness.
