Cadillac officially unveiled the 2016 Cadillac CT6 earlier this month at the 2015 New York Auto Show and now rumors are circulating about how GM could use the CT6’s Omega platform for other vehicles. GM product chief Mark Reuss has revealed that GM may use the Omega platform for a new rear-wheel-drive Buick flagship sedan.
GM is currently trying to decide if an Omega-based Buick is in the future and when asked at the show, he stated “We’re working on that.” There has been speculation for a years that Buick could get a new RWD sedan when it was announced that GM was working on a new RWD Cadillac. The rumors also continued earlier this year when GM unveiled the Buick Avenir concept at the Detroit Auto Show.

A RWD Buick would do well in China where Buick outsells Cadillac nearly 13-to-1, but Reuss hinted that the future Buick flagship for China may not borrow the exact same underpinnings as the new CT6, since the Cadillac flagship uses “a mixed-material architecture and is very flexible.”
