2016 Cadillac CT6 Review

The long wait is over and the Cadillac CT6 is going to be released soon. The car has been showcased at the 2015 New York Auto Show for the first time and it was the first look that fans have managed to glimpse at the new production model form Cadillac. After years of assumptions, spy photos and various kinds of rumors the car finally became a reality and we give you this review to finally get to know all the specs about it. The new design of the CT6 brings us a car which is closer to the European luxury models. It has revised its dimensions and now holds a wheelbase which is the same as in the BMW 7 Series vehicles. But thanks to the newly incorporated materials the car weighs as much as a smaller CTS car as it mostly uses aluminum. This is a peculiar strategy from the makers from Cadillac and brings us something that could be hard to perceive for the future outcomes.

The car is expected to reach production early in 2016 and it is when the exact release date will be announced. For now the only showcase was at New York and you will be able to find a lot about it through this review. Check out the exclusive pictures that have been released about the Cadillac CT6 so you get a better rendition about the car.

At first it was announced that the car was going to feature a design based on the Elmiraj Concept’s styling, but this was actually not the case. Upon the vehicle’s release many rumors have been shed when the car actually appearing sporting an entirely different look. It actually incorporates an evolutionary progression of the Art and Science styling of the current  CTS and ATS sedans. At first this was something of a disappointment for the fans, but the new look which pronounces dash-to-axle ratio  and has a short front overhang actually emphasizes the  luxury-car proportions that the car now has and its rear-wheel drive  as well.

The front part of the vehicle is very nice looking and actually it appears as if it has been chiseled from a solid block. The vertical headlights frame the new grille design which is similar looking as the ones seen in the CTS and ATS designs. The sides are more generic looking and its new shape will actually provide better comfort on the inside and add some additional spacing. The rear is a typical Cadillac that you can see from many of the vehicles in their production line. The angular style is very clean and there are no additional lines that may disturb this look.

Interior

The inside is where the 2016 Cadillac CT6 makes a more distinguishing mark and uses some lines and characteristics which are going to be trademark for itself. It does not have many similarities to the other cars from the Cadillac lineup and only carries over the CUE infotainment system. The CT6 can boost with perhaps the largest amount of in-class interior storage, as it has 2.2-liter center console storage volume. The center console also uses a 0.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display. There is even a smaller touchpad on the arm rest that you can also use if it is easer for you that way. Also some highly advanced gadgets are put inside with the 360-degree camera view around the vehicle or a night vision system.

Cadillac also announces that the 2016 CT6 uses the industry’s first application of full-display technology, which means that the interior mirror is combined with the rear camera in order to provide us with a look at the rear of the car. The 360-degree camera system can also be used to record the front and back view of the car and provided to you. Worth mentioning is also the quad-zone climate control system and a Bose audio system with 34 speakers placed around the cabin.
