How excited were we to see the new Cadillac CT6 flagship at the Detroit auto show press conference? *Very*
We have been refreshing the Cadillac media website throughout the CTS-V introduction, hoping the new flagship photos would be live momentarily. After all, Cadillac announced months ago that the CT6 would make a Detroit reveal.
But all that might have been before new Caddy President Johan de Nysschen (far right in below photo) took the reins of the brand. Our hunch is that he had some last-minute tweaks to the CT6 that are still being implemented.
We hope one of them is a name change. CT6 is awful. Cadillac flagships should have names – not alphanumeric model codes. We proposed “ElleCiel” or LCL last year, but they did not return our calls and emails. =]
Along with the announced Cadillac Manhattan office, we now predict the CT6 will make an NYC auto show debut in April.
Leaving disappointed by Cadillac!? Far from it.
The CTS-V is a real hero car, with nearly 180 more horsepower than the just-launched Lexus GSF, it is a true all-star super-sedan even 10 months before it hits the streets late in Summer 2015.
