The CT6 is a full-size luxury sedan manufactured by Cadillac, and was introduced for the 2016 model year as a RWD-based flagship sedan for Cadillac.
The 2016 Cadillac CT6 large luxury sedan is available in four main trim levels: base, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum; and it is priced to compete against the luxury midsize crowd. Prices will range from $40,000 to $60,000 depending on the year and model. The interior is luxurious and roomy, but cabin storage is a bit small.. At 15.3 cubic feet, the CT6’s trunk is undersized for its class. It seats five people, with available massaging and power-reclining heated rear seats. The front seats are spacious and comfortable and the rear seats have plenty of space.
The CT6 includes:
- 18-inch wheels (19 inch with all-wheel drive)
- front and rear parking sensors
- LED headlights and taillights
- heated mirrors
- a power-tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel
- auto-dimming mirror
- leather upholstery
- eight-way power front seats, with a two-way power lumbar
- driver memory settings

It was initially available with a choice of three engines: a four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbo, and two V6 engines – a 3.6-liter and a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged, offering 404 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Four-wheel drive is standard on four-cylinder models and all-wheel drive is standard on six-cylinder models.
For 2017, Cadillac added a plug-in hybrid model to the lineup, and in 2018, it introduced the available Super Cruise semiautonomous driving system.
A refreshed exterior and a standard four-cylinder engine, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission came for the 2019 model year. Midyear, Cadillac discontinued the four-cylinder engine. Cadillac also introduced the performance-oriented CT6-V model and discontinued the plug-in hybrid. A 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that makes 500 hp in the Platinum trim and 550 hp in the CT6-V model is available.
The CT6 is on its way out; therefore, it is simplified for this model year. The Turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines have been discontinued. There are just two engines to choose from – the 3.6-liter V6 or turbocharged 4.2-liter V8. There are also just three trim levels. Features such as Super Cruise, a semi-automated driver assistance system, is now standard on all but the base trim. The CT6 delivers an estimated 18/27 mpg city/highway.
