One of Cadillac`s luxurious and good-looking four-door sedans in ready to make its debut. It is the 2018 Cadillac CT6. This long awaited model will appear with great improvements considering its powertrain, design and especially tech features. The new CT6 will be very handsome, safe and excellent to handle. So, we believe that it is going to be very popular among sedan lovers.
With this 2018 model, the Automaker has decided to introduce the brand new semi-autonomous driving system named Super Cruise. The Company has called it “the first hands-free driving system for the highway”. This Super Cruise system uses two modern systems: the driver attention system, as to say cameras and radar sensors and precision map data. So we can conclude that, this time, the 2018 CT6 is really worth waiting. It will appear in several trim levels. Those are base, luxury, premium luxury and platinum.
2018 Cadillac CT6 engine and performance
2018 Cadillac CT6 will be powered with three types of engines. The standard is a 2.0-liter turbo engine which comes with rear-wheel drive and the output of 265 horses. The next option is a 3.0-liter twin turbocharged engine. This one will be able to produce 404 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. And the last one is a 3.6-liter V6 engine which will deliver 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque. This unit will appear with all-wheel drive configuration. And it will give better traction and control.
The engines will be coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission. As we have said earlier there will be a choice between AWD and RWD configurations. Some sources say that it will appear with a hybrid version too.
Design of exterior and interior
Looking from the outside, the brand new 2018 Cadillac CT6 looks sophisticated and bold. The whole body is perfectly sculpted and proportioned. The elegancy and luxury are the main principles in its design. The front fascia is very attractive and features nicely designed multi functional LED headlamps. The chrome grille with Cadillac `s insignia in the middle of it, will be slightly revised too. Furthermore, the Platinum trim level will receive new attractive grille and slightly different exterior lines. It will ride on larger 20-inch alloy wheels as well. The Company has removed four exterior colors and introduced the three new ones. Those are: Satin Metallic, Stone Gray Metallic and Red Horizon Tintcoat.
