Thereís a new luxury flagship sedan on the scene and itís going for the throat of rival cars like the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. No, itís not a Jaguar, Audi or something from Lexus, but a Cadillac, born, bred and built in the Motor City.
Given its pedigree, the all-new 2016 CT6 may sound like a hulking chunk of Detroit iron, but this is one notion that really puts the ass
in assumption. Undercutting competing vehicles, this Caddyís platform is rife with advanced engineering.
The CT6 is similar in size to a 7 Series
or an S-Class,
with a wheelbase stretching 122.4 inches. Overall length is 204 inches with a width of 74 inches. The aforementioned BMW, for comparisonís sake, features a hub-to-hub span of just less than 121 inches. Its overall length is an even 200 inches and its width measures 74.9 inches.
Thanks to intelligent engineering, the CT6 weighs much less than its primary rivals. A base model tips the scales at about 3,700 pounds. In comparison, a 2015 BMW 740i Ė the lightest of the range Ė clocks in at more than 4,300, while an S550 is heftier by half a ton!
