Making its debut tonight, on the eve of the 2015 New York Auto Show, the 2016 Cadillac CT6 has all-wheel-drive, all-wheel-steering, and an all wheel suspension system with Magnetic Ride Control. Those are just some of the technological milestones the new Caddy hits upon along with three engine choices and luxury everywhere you look.
Carrying those powertrains is the new Omega architecture featuring mixed materials with high uses of aluminum with high strength steel used in the dash and floorboard for it’s better NVH properties. The CT6 sedan rides on a 122.4-inch wheelbase and is 204 inches long. That makes the Cadillac about 1.3 inches shorter than the BMW 7-Series, but the Caddy is estimated to weigh less than both the 7 and even the 5-Series too.
As you can see, the overall shape is straight-edged and aggressive, and overall in keeping with what we’ve seen from Cadillac over the last several years. The CT6 marks a true competitor in the luxury sedan segment, one that will take on the BMW 7-Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Audi A8 models. High-tech lighting clusters extend from the fenders all the way down in LED strips toward the lower fascia and rectangular fog lights. A suitably large grille bathed in chrome boasts the new large Cadillac emblem.
Under that sharply creased hood will sit a choice of three engines: the 2.0L 4-cylinder Turbo from the ATS, an all new naturally aspirated 3.6L V6, and a blistering twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine with 400 horsepower. Regardless of engine choice, all are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. If you want even more power, Cadillac will eventually offer a twin-turbocharged V8 in the CT6.
Look for the stunning new CT6 this fall with pricing estimated to start in the $50k range.
