new york 2015 cadillac ct6 is coming with length

With apologies to commenter CoreyDL, who artfully suggested that the CT6 would be a long wheelbase CT6, we stole your riff on the unfortunate slogan Cadillac uses in China. But nobody can really say that the CT6 doesn’t look like a stretched CTS.

The CT6 is, at least, all new under the skin, riding on GM’s new full-size RWD Omega platform. Along with a 2.0T 4-cylinder and a naturally aspirated 3.6L V6, a new 3.0L twin-turbo V6 debuts with 400 horsepower. While rear and all-wheel drive are available, the sole transmission is an 8-speed automatic.

The Omega architecture is aluminum intensive in its construction, which allows the CT6 to weigh in at around 3,700 lbs, impossibly light for a full size luxury sedan. Despite being 204 inches long, it should weigh in below a BMW 5 Series. Although the much loathed CUE system is in play, a 34 speaker sound system will at least make the music sound good – once you get it to play.

    The real CT6 competitor at half price or less, with far more standard equipment & HP'(make sure to compare interior & exterior):

      @dal20402 Dal,- 1) I've driven the 2015+ Genesis. It's ride composure & suspension refinement is light years ahead of the flawed last gen. 2) It has a roomier back seat than the CTS by far (which I've driven and my uncle owns - 3rd gen). 3) It has better material quality, fit/finish and overall build quality (and especially standard gauges) than the CTS, IMO (YOMV). 4) It has, in base trim ($34,000 real world pricing), a 311 HP V6, versus the CTSs (or CT6s) 2.0T 4 banger. Let's wait and see the real touch/feel, test drives, long term living experiences with the CT6, before falling prey to the "new, glowing, hype."


    As long as the name is CT6 it might as well be a germanwings flight through the alps. Dead on Take-off. . .

      I honestly could care less about the name. The problem for the CT6, and we haven't even sat in it let alone driven it yet, is that unless it has a magical powertrain and ride (doubtful with the engine choices), its real competition will be the 1/2 expensive FWD Impala (check out an LTZ Impala's interior and registration), or a 1/2 expensive 2015 Hyundai Genesis.

  • RICK Once had 78 TOWN COUPE and wish I had never let it go! Ultimate OTT excessive luxury! Have since had RWD FLEETWOODS, RWD Fifth Avenues ,as well as 89 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series and current 2007 TOWN CAR Signature Limited! All great cars, but 77 through 79 was KING 🤴 of the road! So sad to see what is now considered a luxury vehicle 😢. Who wants to drive a glorified truck 🚚?
  • Kwik_Shift There are better cars to drop $80G on.

  • Kwik_Shift If there is no 2WD Access Cab with 6 speed manual, then I'm not interested.
