Cadillac CT6: A confused large luxury sports sedan

There was a time when Cadillac produced the greatest cars in the world. Those days disappeared but the brand certainly builds and sells some of the greatest sporting luxury cars out there right now. The ATS-V and CTS-V are simply stellar. Additionally, the reworked Escalade is now truly a luxury SUV.

Today we’re talking about the CT6 though, which is a size-straddling luxury sedan that can pack a deceptive punch. It’s larger than a mid-size yet not quite a full-size car. Our tester here is equipped with a 400+horsepower 3.0-liter V6 aided by a pair of turbochargers.

The car is polarizing.

It’s great in some areas. Confused in others. And downright disappointing in some spots.

This isn’t the large luxury Cadillac we need right now.

[Disclaimer: Cadillac tossed us the keys to the CT6 and included a full tank of fuel. We drove it and scowled at the audio system the entire time.]

    Lack of comments pretty much sum up the feelings for this car.

    I’m a Caddy fan and I so want to like this car. Sorry to hear that the Panaray is a disappointment. There always seems to be huge promises in luxury car audio but I’ve yet to experienced truly amazing car audio, and for the price of that Panaray, it’d have to be just as you say, illicit, groping and near pornographic. I hope they follow through with a V8, true, flagship Caddy able to take on the S-Class someday.
    BTW, your video reviews are quite exceptional. You touch on all the important, real-world stuff and avoid all the engineer-wannabe blathering about suspension geometry, gear ratios and useless comparisons that automotive journalists seem to be all about these days. Thanks and well done, sir!
