Compare the 2017 Cadillac CT6 Sedan

Loading Comparison...


Cadillac CT6 was an all-new car for 2016, a luxury sedan intended to challenge Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, and Audi A8. The 2017 Cadillac CT6 lineup includes a new plug-in hybrid model. Otherwise, CT6 carries over to 2017 unchanged.

The CT6 is sleek and graced with good handling. It has efficient engineering going for it, enabling it to weigh substantially less than similar Mercedes or BMW models. That means the Cadillac’s silky V6 brings as much speed as the competitors’ throaty and thirsty V8s.

There are three gasoline engines available, all direct injection and mated to an excellent 8-speed automatic transmission. Base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 265 horsepower; then a non-turbo 3.6-liter V6 making 335 hp; and a new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 breaking the 400 barrier with 404 hp. The V6 powertrains are available with all-wheel drive. A 400-horsepower four-wheel-drive Cadillac sounds pretty honkin’, even if it is called a Platinum.

The CT6 is Cadillac’s new flagship sedan.


The 2017 Cadillac CT6 ($53,495) comes with a choice of 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and rear-wheel drive or 3.6-liter V6 and all-wheel drive ($55,495). CT6 can be upgraded to Luxury ($54,891), Premium Luxury ($59,438), and Platinum ($78,040) trim levels. Options include massaging rear seats and 34-speaker sound systems. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charges.)

The CT6 comes with a standard rearview camera. Available safety features include forward-collision warnings with automatic braking, blind-spot monitors, and surround-view cameras. The pioneering rear camera mirror takes some getting used to.


The CT6 and CTS share styling details, from sharp sheetmetal creases to LED blade lenses. But the longer wheelbase of the CT6 gives it a Cadillac-classic long hood and trunk.


The cabin is the finest Cadillac ever made, and it’s rife with high-quality materials that fit as well as anything we’ve ever seen from Cadillac.

But the aesthetics could be warmer; it lacks the flourishes that have made the German sedans evocative and emotionally appealing machines. The CT6 can’t compete with the Mercedes S-Class with its gorgeous arcs of chrome and glowing LED rainbows, or the fantastic sandwiched wood-and-metal trim in the Audi A8. Don’t misunderstand. We think the Cadillac design of spare and pure is a good one. It’s the Barcelona chair of its class, and that’s an exciting direction for Cadillac.

The CT6 has exceptional room, especially rear legroom, although the center rear passenger will be perched high and uncomfortable on the transmission tunnel, while the NBA forwards on either side of him will be fine, even with headroom. An optional Rear Seat Package massages and reclines the seats, and shows entertainment on the 10-inch screens, in your 400-horsepower four-wheel-drive Cadillac.

The rear seats don’t fold flat, while the rear seatbelt receivers are too deep in the seats, and hard to find especially when the armrest is down. There’s a trap door over the armrest to the trunk, to carry long thin things. The trunk holds a big 15.3 cubic feet.

The driver’s seat is very firm and flat. It needs either more bolstering or softer cushions, as well as a wider range of adjustment. There’s a large center console under an armrest. The CUE infotainment system is standard, appearing on a 10.2-inch hi-resolution screen.

It’s quiet inside because the engine has a steel block, says Cadillac. A steel block is quieter than aluminum. That means less interior sound-deadening material is needed. That material weighs more than the difference between a steel block and an aluminum block. That’s the efficient engineering.

Driving Impressions

The 2.0-liter turbocharged model, 428 pounds lighter than the V6 models, is agile and light on its feet, taut and sometimes even too stiff, the closest thing to a sport sedan that CT6 offers. (Mercedes has their AMG and BMW their M, but there’s nothing there for the CT6.) The aluminum-and-steel chassis is rigid, and the electric steering is direct, with a pleasant heft and zesty response. But because the CT6 is long and wide, there’s too much car to feel truly sporty; the V6 with its heavier nose tends to understeer when pushed.

There’s an Active Chassis Package ($3300) including magnetic dampers with a firm grip on body motion, and rear-steer system to help the car turn in better. The rear wheels turn in the opposite direction, up to 3.5 degrees, helping the car rotate in low-speed turns, and providing stability in quick high-speed maneuvers.

However the magnetic dampers don’t offer as much range as the suspensions do on the S-Class and A8. The CT6 rides firm all the time, no matter which mode it’s in, from Tour to Sport. The Mercedes and Audi know when to soften up.

Of course, the Mercedes is about 1000 pounds heavier than the CT6 with the 2.0 engine. The heaviest CT6, the twin-turbo V6 with all-wheel drive, that 400 horsepower four-wheel-drive model, is still 225 pounds lighter than a BMW 7.

The turbocharged four-cylinder can hit sixty miles per hour from a standing start in 6.1 seconds, while the V6 can do it in 5.3 seconds. Power from the V6 is strong and smooth, equal to a V8.


The Cadillac CT6 is big, quiet, roomy and luxurious. It’s sleek and, lighter than the competition, it handles well.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
