The 2018 Cadillac CT8 boasts a new approach to design, which takes cues from the Elmiraj concept. As a result, not only will this sedan receive more insulation, it will also see improvements in the shape of beefier brakes, axles, as well as thicker glass. Its body will be built using materials that are lighter in weight like carbon fiber and aluminum or even plastic. Interior-wise, the CT8 comes with a computer system that will help control air suspension as well as the quality of active ride, too. Through this, the car can anticipate a bump and analyze the road ahead.
2018 Cadillac CT8 Engine
The 2018 Cadillac CT8 stores one unit of engine under its hood. The sedan is embedded with a V8 twin-turbocharged unit whose capacity reaches 4.2 liter. This specification will grant the car with a 500lb-ft torque against a 500 horsepower. The engine will be paired with a gearbox of 8-speed automation. However, news also speculates that the CT8 will be offered in another variant that boasts a V6 unit. This variant uses a twin-turbocharged engine, too, but its capacity will only reach 3.6 liter, which will offer a 450 horsepower against 400 pounds feet of torque. Another variant that the company is rumored to put out is one that uses an inline 4 petrol turbocharged engine with 2.0 liter capacity.
Release Date and Prices
The 2018 Cadillac CT8 is expected to be available in the market sometime in 2017. Its price, however, is a subject of much speculation. The model is lauded as being one of the fastest sedans out there as well as the most luxurious. Coupled with the fact that it will be a new product upon its release, be ready to face a price tag that is way higher than that of the previous outings. To illustrate, one must be willing to spend $100,000 to get the car safely parked in one’s garage.
