Every time I see a Cadillac CT6, I want it to be good. A high-tech super-speed sedan, with some wild engine under the sharp hood. Well, although production is ending in the United States next year, it will not be without a CT6-V, 550 horsepower "Blackwing" V8 and all.

The news comes straight from Cadillac, with a representative writing Jalopnik when asked for comments confirming that production was coming to an end:

The CT6 comes out of production in mid-2019 at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly, which produces vehicles for North America. Important note – our plans to introduce the V-Series and Blackwing V-8 are unaffected by today's news.

That Blackwing is a beast. From 4.2 liters, 550 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque to the CT6-V thanks to twin turbos. Non-V Blackwings will still make 500 HP and 553 lb-ft in other CT6s.

Thus, the CT6 will continue the strong GM traditions of leaving as it should have gone to the world. This is referred to as Fiero Syndrome.

We at Jalopnik wish the CT6 well in Valhalla where he will live his days with the second-generation Corvair, the Chevrolet SS and probably a couple of other Pontiacs that I'm forgetting.
