This may be after the fact since you posted this a couple of weeks ago. However if you do a web search on "Cadillac CT6-V", there are any number of sites with this information. Additionally on this forum there is an ordering sheet available in the CT6 sub-forum. Here is the link to the ordering sheet, https://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-ct6-1st-generation-forum-2016/1067986-2019-ct6-order-guide-available-now.html

Sorry, but pricing isn't out yet on the V. The order guide doesn't list it at all.

I did not see it but was not sure I looked for it correctly. I called my dealer to let me know when they have more info.

Cadillac can't win with this one. It will probably list ~ 115K. Yes, it undercuts the S63 AMG and Alpina BMW by thousands but if I were looking for a large lux sedan I might sacrifice the 9 inches in overall length and get the M5 which starts ~ 105K. Honestly, no Cadillac should have a MSRP above 80K. I think GM really struggles with Caddy's above 80k.

I am just curious how much $$$ it'll cost me to trade in our 2019 fully-loaded Premium Luxury CT6 with about 2,000 miles on it, for the CT6-V. Can't wait for spring!

You are going to be looking at about a $27,000.00 trade difference. You will take a major hit for such an early trade out of the 2019 as you lost about $15,000 when you drove the car off the lot. The 2019 CT6-V will price out $10,000-$15,000 above the price of your car.
The trade difference may be a couple of thousand less but I can almost assure you that I am in the ball park.
I have been there and done it and I can tell you to trade a new car in the first year is the worse thing that you can do. I only recommend doing so when you have a new car that you absolutely cannot live with and to take the financial hit might save your sanity or such a finacial hit is not going to brake your bank account:wisdom:

This is a great analysis, and pretty much what I thought. I assume your figures are in USD. Converting the prediction of your $27,000 to CAD, that's about $35K. I actually expected to be worse... upwards of $40K CAD.

The best bet would be to wait a year... Buy the 2019 CT6-V next summer (2020), and then sell the 2018 CT6. The spread won't be as bad.

It'll be interesting to see the cards side-by-side... Staring down that aggressive grille... and giving them both a spin... the current TT up against the V8. It will be within minutes that I would make the determination as to how much it's worth it!

The CT6-V may be a disappointment, or it may be a MUST have car! I'm looking forward to checking it out! That - and the 2020 Escalade. The interior is supposed to be something else. Two vehicles that can be quite exciting!!

What strikes me as totally absent in these given pricing computations offered by members so far is the almost absolute certainty of a $ubstantial :drool2: dealer markup for the expected limited production run of the 550hp CT6-V. NA auto dealers have historically demonstrated a special knack to manipulate the "Monroney" price of a particular coveted vehicle.

Patience will be rewarded for the CT6 V. I can guarantee that come winter 2019/2020 there will still be dozens on dealers lots (I'm assuming a production run of ~ 300-400 cars). If you can stand not optioning the car exactly to your specs then this route can easily save you 20% off MSRP (if not more). Cadillac will sell a bunch during the first 2-3 months and then sales will fall off a cliff. Dealer mark-ups on cars < 60K is one thing, marking up a car that is already > 115K will be a non-starter.

Totally agree. Patience shall be rewarded.
At least we're in a position where we have a Premium 2018 CT6, built to our specs (Cinnamon seats; Panaray; 20" active chassis; Super Cruise, etc. etc.), which we love, as opposed to a vehicle on its last legs.
Patience is a virtue!

Checked with the dealer yesterday. They will build only 275 units. No leased cars, just owned. If you want one, you have to order it.

Dealer told me 275 units and they are looking for people to claim them and the rest will be available. I asked how much will it cost and they don’t know but they are happy to take a deposit. Hard to order a car with no price available.

That's about what I thought. They only made 213 ATS-V coupes in 2018 (344 sedans). Several dealers will order them, hoping to sell them quickly but I still think some will sit for long periods.

Got a call from my dealer today. He said that he can get a 2019 CT6 w/V8 for about $95k. Super Cruise is not an option and is not available. 500HP, etc. They are not going to make very many. Thanks, but no. My 18 CT6 Platnum is just fine for these old bones. My old demised 2017 3.0tt was a blast. Trouble free until Atlanta. Oh well.
