New Cadillac CT6 Transmission Offers Dynamic Performance and Efficiency

The new Cadillac CT6 option comes in the form of a Hydra-Matic 8L45 paddle-shift eight speed automatic transmission that takes performance and power to a whole other level. The new 8L45 transmission draws inspiration from the renowned engine that was designed for the Corvette Stingray.

Bill Goodrich, assistant chief engineer for eight-speed automatic transmissions, said, “The 8L45 was designed to enhance the CT6’s driving experience, offering a strong balance between performance and efficiency.”

Shifting is nearly undetectable, making the CT6’s driving experience super smooth. The 8 speed automatic also incorporates parts that support Cadillac’s start/stop technology.

The 8L45 eight speed will be paired with new 3.6-liter V6 engine as well. An 8L90 option will be available with the CT6’s 3.0-liter twin turbo V6 engine.

We here at Crest Cadillac are more than excited for the new Cadillac CT6 to arrive and we hope you are too!
