Cadillac is currently in the process of revamping their car roster and so far the results appear rather impressive. With these cars the American car company hopes to get head on producers like Mercedes, Jaguar or Audi.While they up to now managed to do perfect, they don’t really have a high conclusion offering. The CT6 sedan can be optioned to as much as $90,000 which is still much less outstanding than some of its rivals. On top of that they don’t really have a high performance luxury offering or any other type of luxury car except the sedans and crossovers. That immediate us to think that the rumors about 2017 Cadillac Ciel can arrived at fruition.
ANY PLANS FOR THE FUTURE?
Straight back in 2011 they were releasing the Ciel concept car, a stunning two door convertible which would definitely set the design trend for all the future Cadillac cars. Quickly forward five years and there is still number Ciel on the market. There are still some interesting rumors about a future 2017 Cadillac Ciel but at this time nothing is certain. Cadillac stated that they don’t desire to undergo with developing the production model because it could be too expensive. But, contemplating where the market is heading, a Ciel would make ideal sense. They’d manage to contend with a lot of interesting cars and it’d truly lift their company acceptance to a new level. If it will actually be launched, expect the Ciel to price in excess of $100,000. Some of its rivals would include the Maserati GranTurismo or the new Lexus LC.
WHAT IF IT GETS RELEASED?
Then the 2017 Cadillac Ciel would become the best seeking, and likely most desired, car in its class. The concept was using a bespoke rear wheel travel frame but currently Cadillac has the means to make the production of the car a ton simpler. To begin with, the highly modular Alpha platform would make perfect sense here. The platform is light, rear wheel travel, very firm and it is very versatile. It will allow them to offer the comfort desired by persons considering a car at this price. On top of that, with the help of an flexible suspension program, the Ciel would manage to be both comfortable and good to drive. The car would likely manage to use rear or all wheel travel and it’d get new engines in purchase to match the high price tag.
2017 Cadillac Ciel IT REAL?
The original concept of the rumored 2017 Cadillac Ciel used a twin-turbocharged 3.6 liter V6 which preceded the ongoing 3.6 liter unit. Later down the road the Elmiraj was published sporting a 4.5 liter twin-turbo V8. If the Ciel is actually going to be produced then we are quite sure so it would use derivatives of both engines.
The base car would likely receive a 3 or 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 with as much as 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. This might likely be the model with rear and all wheel travel available. The top conclusion edition, which is expected to be directed at the big American producers, may use a new twin-turbo V8. It still is unclear what displacement the engine will be but there are rumors about either a 4.2 or a 4.8 liter unit.
Regardless, the output is apparently higher than 500 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. Some even proposed that 700 horsepower is more than achievable with this unit. That particular engine would likely be offered with rear wheel travel only. To be able to match a luxury convertible like the Ciel, an automatic is the only choice. Because of that, GM’s 10 speed automatic is the only possible contender here making feeling contemplating its smoothness.
