2016 CADILLAC CT6 FIRST LOOK
2016 CADILLAC CT6 FIRST LOOK BY AUTO CRITIC STEVE HAMMES
Positioning it as the rebirth of the prestige sedan, the first-ever 2016 Cadillac CT6 has been designed with a new approach, crafted to reignite a passion for driving in large luxury vehicles.
It is one of the world’s lightest and most agile full-size luxury performance sedans giving it the exhilaration of a true driver’s car. According to Cadillac, its state-of-the-art architecture is the foundation for its benchmark-establishing agility and vault-like solidity and quietness.
With bold American luxury design, the CT6 is a true rear-wheel drive car offered with 3 engines: a 2.0-liter turbo-4, a 3.6-liter V6 or the 400 horsepower twin turbo 3.0-liter V6. Active-on-demand all-wheel drive is standard with the 6 cylinder engines while active rear steering and Magnetic Ride Control are available as part of the Active Chassis Package.
Its highest fuel economy of 25mpg in combined driving is achieved with the 4-cylinder power plant. An 8-speed automatic is the sole transmission.
Though it’s been designed for passionate drivers, the CT6 doesn’t forget about its passengers with a cabin featuring modern craftsmanship, available massaging seats and reclining rear seats, comprehensive rear seat infotainment, quad zone climate control and a Cadillac first Bose Panaray audio system with 34 strategically placed speakers.
A Rear Camera Mirror, an industry-first surround-view video recording system and enhanced Night Vision lead the tech front.
Pricing starts at $54,490 but if you desire all of the luxury, performance and technology Cadillac offers, a CT6 3.0L Twin Turbo Platinum all-wheel drive comes in at $88,460.
