“As big as a BMW 7 Series, but lighter than a BMW 5 Series”, which is probably the boldest statement on the new 2016 Cadillac CT6. The sedan takes the luxury sedans of the German premium producer and sets his sights, it is believed Cadillac, new standards in this segment. The BMW 7 Series is slim yet properly and then the Americans come around the corner and suddenly say they knew something lightweight.
5.18 meters is the new luxury sedan in America who wants to set new standards in this segment worldwide. BMW is the new 7 Series in some cases even on materials such as carbon, to push the weight. Cadillac wants to press the extensive use of aluminum on the weight below 1,700 kg. And the Yanks have “even worse” before, at least from the perspective of the BMW engineers. Because it is the dynamics to be better than BMW and Co. offer. Cadillac boasts of statements that enable one in pure amazement.
Looking at the engines, it is difficult to believe that driving dynamics more to go in Cadillac CT6 than about the new BMW 7 Series. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with 269 hp and a 3.6-liter V6 (naturally aspirated) with 340 hp (definitely not in the European market) and a top engine with 405 hp. All engines are coupled to the Hydra Automatic 8-speed automatic transmission. Selling (in the US) will start in early 2016.
Technically want the Cadillac luxury sedan with a CT6 shine “Active chassis system” that includes a rear axle and the Magnetic Ride Control. The driver of the Cadillac CT6 can get a massage while (heating and cooling) the passengers in the back seat only air-conditioned seats to enjoy. There is also a 4-zone air conditioning and a Bose sound system with 34 speakers. If anything Cadillac can score a maximum of the active driving side, the interior cannot really come close to an S-Class.
