A silver Cadillac CT6 on a paver street

The birth of the Cadillac brand is similar to that of the mythical phoenix rising from the ashes, and its subsequent development and evolution could be equated to putting an automobile-industry jigsaw puzzle together. You see, the Cadillac brand arose from Henry Ford’s second failed attempt to establish an automobile company, the Henry Ford Company to be specific. The concept for the first Cadillac was built on a Ford chassis and powered by an Oldsmobile engine. The man behind the brand concept was a Detroit machinist, and the Cadillac name pays homage to the city of Detroit’s founder, Antoine Laumet de La Mothe Cadillac. It doesn’t appear to be a coincidence that the Cadillac brand’s history is so intertwined with various aspects of the automobile industry. The brand continues to incorporate the best the automobile industry has to offer in creating luxury vehicles that few other brands can compete with. It’s a concept that’s evident in the Cadillac CT6, which is available at your local Cadillac dealership near you.

The CT6 made its debut in 2015, when production moved from Detroit to New York. Up until that point, Cadillac referred to their production and development concept as “art and science.” The 2015 production year, not only ushered in a new Cadillac model, but it also ushered in a new production and development phase that the brand deemed “Dare Greatly.”

Tailored to Demand Your Attention

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 is a sculpted masterpiece. It’s available in four trim levels: Standard, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum. Understandably, there’s a price to pay if you want to drive this luxury sedan. For the Standard trim, the starting price is around $54,000. If you’re looking for a more upscale package, the Premium trim level starts at around $60,000. And if you want to reset the standard of luxury on the highway, the Platinum level will take care of that for you. The starting price for this top-of-line trim level is around $84,000.

The front of the CT6 is framed by vertical LED light signatures. Slightly moving the eye inward and you’re gazing into the CT6’s Indirect Fire LED multifunction headlamps. Moving across and over the CT6’s sleek, curved body, you arrive at the perfect complements to the headlamps, signature LED taillamps.

The CT6’s paint palette is just as distinguished as the luxury sedan itself. The latest model comes in two standard colors, Radiant Silver Metallic and Black Raven. For an estimated $625 more, you can select from luxury colors, including Satin Steel Metallic, Bronze Dune Metallic, and Crystal White Tricoat.
And when it comes to high-powered sedans, few sedans, let alone luxury sedans, can compete with the CT6’s available 404-horsepower, 3.0L V6 twin turbo engine. Complementing its powerful engine and accenting the CT6 is a quad exhaust system. Without turning on the ignition, one look at those four exhaust pipes and you already know you’re in for one serious ride.
And speaking of riding, the CT6 comes standard with 18-inch multi-spoke aluminum wheels accented with a Blade Silver finish.

It’s an artistic masterpiece.

Spaciousness and Comfort Come Standard

The interior of the 2018 Cadillac CT6 is just as lavish as the outside. When you open the door of this luxury sedan, you are greeted with seats covered in cut-and-sewn leather and equipped with heating and ventilation. If that doesn’t get you thinking about comfort, the CT6 comes standard with 14-way adjustable seating. Looking around the interior you will notice an array of materials are incorporated into the finishes, including leather, exotic wood, and chrome accents.

To complement this luxurious setting, you can select the available UltraView panoramic power sunroof. This accessory is far from your ordinary sunroof or moonroof. The UltraView provides not only the front-seat passengers but also the rear-seat passengers the pleasure of enjoying the beauty of sky on any and all trips. Whether you’re driving around town or hitting the highway for a road trip, you have the privilege of inviting the outside into the CT6’s cabin.

Safety and Technology Are Taken to New Heights

The CT6 also assists drivers in being constantly aware of there surrounds whether it’s for safety reasons or simply to park. The available Surround Vision feature, as the name implies, gives drivers a complete view of their surroundings via cameras. And if the need to capture the photographic information the camera system provided you with, the available Surround Vision Recorder will do just that.

The CT6 comes standard with the Passenger Sensing System. This feature can automatically detect the presence of a passenger, including determining whether the individual is a child or small-stature adult. As a result of this assessment, the system makes adjustments regarding the passenger airbag system, including turning it on and off and modifying deployment.
