The new Cadillac CT6 is finally here, and it was unveiled at this year New York Auto Show. The CT6 is similar in size to European luxury cars, and with its length and wheelbase is basically the same with those of a BMW 7 Series short-wheelbase. But, due to its aluminum-intensive platform, the model weighs less than the BMW 5 Series. Will the Cadillac’s strategy show good results in long terms, remains to be seen, but the 2016 Cadillac CT6 seems to be a promising vehicle.
The new Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan comes with a well pronounced dash-to-axle ratio and a short front overhang, which underlines the car’s RWD and classic luxury-vehicle proportions. The front end looks like it has been carved out of one piece, while the characteristic grille is fitted in between the upright boomerang shaped LED headlights. When taking a look at the sides of the vehicle, you can notice that they are more common-looking, the greenhouse especially. Also, the back end is characteristic contemporary Cadillac style, while no extra lines break the otherwise clean and square design.
As far as the 2016 Cadillac CT6 interior is concerned, this is where the new Cadillaci at its best. The center console comes with a 10.2 inch touchscreen display, while a smaller one is found in the instrument cluster’s space. Furthermore, there is also a smaller touch-pad on the arm rest. Modern features like a 360-degree camera view around the vehicle and a night vision system that can detect people and large animals are there as well, but the new Cadillac CT6 2016 has given them quite an upgrade. There is also a quad-zone climate control system available, and the audio system from Bose, which comes equipped with 34 speakers placed around the cabin. Now that is a real surround system!
Engine, 2016 Cadillac CT6 0-60
Under the hood of the new Cadillac CT6 2016, you will find a “weak” V-6, but it more than makes up for it, with its technology and power. The featured, 3.0 l twin-turbocharged V-6, is capable of pumping out around 400 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, quite enough to move the new sedan in a sporty manner. There are no official information regarding the fuel economy, but it is expected to be pretty impressive, having in mind that engine is equipped with the cylinder deactivation technology and the small weight of the car. The V-6 comes paired up with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Furthermore, a 2.0 turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a 3.6 l V-6 will also be part a of the engine lineup when the car goes on sale next year. An intelligent AWD system will come with the twin-turbo V-6 as standard, and it will feature a continuously variable clutch that gives power to the front wheels only when necessary. An also interesting information, is that the next generation Cadillac CT6 will feature a Magnetic Ride Control and, a first timer in a Cadillac, Active Rear Steer. It accelerate from 0-60 mph for 6.5 sec. (Est.) with Cadillac CT6 2016 top speed 155 mph (Est.).
