SKF Hub Bearings Boost Driving Experience on New Cadillac CT6

Source: 12/8/2016, Location: Europe

SKF is supplying General Motors with front and rear wheel hub bearing units for the new 2016 Cadillac CT6 prestige luxury sedan, launched at the New York International Auto Show in April last year.

The new hub bearing units, which were developed in partnership with GM, use an asymmetric raceway based on SKFs X-Tracker technology. Their unique geometry contributes to higher corner stiffness, an agile suspension and a smoother ride purposeful innovations that are essential attributes for a high performance vehicle, which combines luxury and advanced technology with lightweight construction to deliver a dynamic and safe driving experience.

An improved seal design reduces the probability of failure due to contamination, while simultaneously cutting friction, noise and vibration. For owners that translates into higher reliability, a quieter ride, lower fuel consumption and fewer emissions. The seal has now become GMs benchmark design for hub bearing units.

Jason Stocker, Vice President Corporate Account, Automotive Market says, SKF has a clear and dedicated focus to support GMs vision to earn customers for life. As a strategic partner with GM, we are proud to contribute to this highest level of engineering and performance in the advanced chassis of the Cadillac CT6.

Production of the Cadillac CT6 started in autumn 2015 at GMs Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. SKFs unique front and rear wheel hub bearing units are supplied from its factory in Puebla, Mexico.
