With the development of Cadillac’s flagship CT6 sedan for 2017, the American luxury brand makes a comeback to the premium-luxury full-size car world, prepared to challenge heavyweights like the Audi A8, Lexus LS, and BMW 7 Series. The CT6 will borrow styling language that is laid down by the ATS and CTS sedans and will place it on a lower and wider platform. Engineers of Cadillac poured everything they had within the vehicle’s chassis and engine, whereas the interior staff outdid themselves as far as features, materials and styling is concerned. With a sum of 4 trim levels, AWD or RWD and 4 powertrain options, which include a new plug-in hybrid, the brand’s 2017 CT6 sedan is seeking to take on as many challengers as it can and win.

What is New for 2017?
The Cadillac CT6 sedan for 2017 presents its most recent model, a plug-in hybrid, which promises thirty miles of EV-only range, all while still providing a generous sized trunk, and most torque of any CT6 version.
It does not matter what engine you pick; as it’ll come to seat-of-the-pants handling and dynamic cornering, Caddy’s 2017 CT6 luxury sedan knows what it is doing. In spite of its bigger dimensions, this model tips the scales a mere seventeen pounds heavier than the mid-sized CTS, and is almost 1,000 lbs. lighter than the BMW 7 Series or Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The weight-saving benefit, along with an ultra-rigid structure and advanced suspension set-up, permits the CT6 to move with an agility you will have to experience to believe. A few editors even felt that it out-Germans the Germans. Even its base, rear drive CT6 with its turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine is a joy to drive. Throw in all wheel drive, the 404-hp turbo V-6 and Active Chassis Package that has four-wheel steering, and you will receive an automobile equally at home upon the Nurburgring as it is the 405 highway.
Bose Panaray Audio Center
Its Bose Panaray stereo center is unique to this Cadillac CT6 for 2017 and has 34 compact speakers placed strategically throughout its cabin. The center has a Bose processor which uses the best technology from the brand’s home entertainment products, and results in seemingly limitless volume, deep bass, and crisp highs.
Active Chassis Package
Provided on the V-6-powered trims, as well as standard upon the Platinum, Caddy’s Active Chassis Package will merge the on-demand all wheel drive system with General Motor’s multiple mode Magnetic Ride Control, as well as four-wheel steering. This combination will promote superior agility at lower speeds, as well as its improved stability at higher speeds.
Well-appointed, quiet, and roomy even within base form, the roomy cabin of Caddy’s 2017 CT6 luxury sedan will reflect a tasteful combination of real wood, fine leather, as well as distinctive carbon fiber accents which place a contemporary spin on traditional luxury. The 8” configurable instrument cluster was replaced with a 12” unit within the Platinum and Premium Luxury models, yet all CT6s have a more responsive edition of the CUE infotainment center which will include a 10.2” screen and touch pad that is mounted on the console. Supportive, comfortable front buckets are matched with equally accommodating 40/20/40 bench seat in the rear offering an impressive 40.4” of legroom.
Focusing on the classic proportions of an impactful rear drive sedan, the CT6 for 2017 has a long dash-to-axle ratio, as well as will embody the most recent Art and Science visual language that is reflected in crisply tailored body panels and its expressive, bold face.
