2015 ATS Grille

The Ford F-150 won’t be the only new model sporting an aluminum body: the Cadillac CT6 — which won’t look much like the Elmiraj concept, alas — will enter production with the metal, as well.

Automobile reports the body will keep the CT6 — slotted above the CTS but below the Mercedes S-Class in size — around 3,700 to 4,100 pounds in weight. The strategy would put the upcoming sedan in the same weight class as the Mercedes CLS-Class, BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe and Audi A7.

As for power, the CT6 will be motivated by a new overhead-cam family back in development by General Motors, with four- and six-cylinder models expected to join the planned V8 variant that was shelved around the time of the 2009 bankruptcy.

Unfortunately, the future flagship — until the CT9 turns up later down the road, anyway — won’t be attending the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, and will likely take the ramp at Geneva, New York or Frankfurt later in the year. The CT6 is expected in showrooms just after the start of the 2016 model year.
