This week The Car Guide is in Los Angeles, California to drive the 2016 Cadillac CT6. This all-new full-size sedan from Detroit's leading luxury brand is intended to take over from the current Cadillac XTS when that model leaves the line-up in the near future - but more importantly, it also showcases Cadillac's new trends in technology and design in a bid to pull even with its European competitors.
There are three engine options available with the CT6, ranging from a 272 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder unit up to a 400 horsepower twin-turbo V6, and like its CTS line-up mate, the CT6 offers rear-wheel drive dynamics. An eight-speed automatic is the only gearbox available with the sedan, and Cadillac engineers have done their best to keep its curb weight low: the CT6's mass matches that of several class-below four-doors. Magnetically adaptive suspension and available rear-steering round out the list of intriguing features packed into the Cadillac, and a plug-in hybrid model is also on the horizon.
Check back with us next week to get our full driving impressions on the Cadillac CT6.
