Cadillac CT6 Changes for 2018

Cadillac has published changes coming to the 2018 CT6 to their dealers.

As is typical of these sort of changes, we have colors being retired:

Red Passion Tintcoat
Phantom Gray Metallic
Moonstone Metallic
Dark Emerald Metallic

…as well as new colors to take their place:

Satin Steel Metallic
Stone Gray Metallic
Red Horizon Tintcoat

The 2018 model also brings the latest version of the Cadillac user experience (2.6) but also includes the ability to be updated over-the air (OTA) which does not yet appear to be coming to other models in the line.  Another new feature is a power washer nozzle for the rear camera (which should make the view out the Rear Camera Mirror clearer in inclement weather.  Other changes are relatively minor and are listed below:
