What You Will Like

The CT6 competes with full size luxury cars such as the BMW 7-series, the Audi A8 and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. However, with a base price of around $54,000, the CT6 is actually priced similarly to mid-sized luxury cars like the smaller BMW 5-Series and the Audi A6. In essence, the Cadillac CT6 offers large car amenities at a mid-sized car price. The CT6 though, is every bit as modern and capable as its European competitors, offering a huge suite of technology and innovative luxury features to make getting from place to place as comfortable as possible.

Introduction

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 offers a new option called SuperCruise that allows hands-free driving with the adaptive cruise control. Other, more minor, changes for the 2018 CT6 include new colors and improvements to the Park Assist feature.

With sleek looks and graceful handling, the CT6 was an all-new product for 2016, a luxury flagship sedan that aspired to challenge the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, and Audi A8.

For 2017, the Plug-In hybrid model joined the lineup, primarily for California.

An American V6 propels the CT6 as quickly as the German V8s power the heavy German cars, a benefit of the lighter weight of the CT6. That American V6 is also fuel-efficient and silky smooth. For spirited driving, the CT6 is available as a 400-horsepower four-wheel-drive Cadillac.

Three engines are available in addition to a plug-in hybrid. All use direct injection and are mated to an excellent 8-speed automatic transmission.

A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder comes standard making 265 horsepower and comes with rear-wheel drive. (All-wheel drive is not available with the four-cylinder.)

A 3.6-liter V6 makes 335 hp, while a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 delivers 404 hp. Both V6s come with all-wheel drive (rear-wheel drive is not available with the V6s).

Lineup

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 ($54,095) comes standard with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and rear-wheel drive. Standard equipment includes rearview camera, while available safety features include forward-collision warnings with automatic braking, blind-spot monitors, and surround-view cameras. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge, taxes, cash allowances or discounts.)

Optional is the 3.6-liter V6 with all-wheel drive ($55,090) or the 3.0-liter Twin Turbo engine and all-wheel drive. The CT6 Plug-In ($76,090) features an 18.4-kWh Lithium-ion propulsion battery paired with a 2.0-liter turbo direct injection engine.

Luxury, Premium, and Platinum trim levels are available. Options include massaging rear seats and 34-speaker sound systems.

Walkaround

The lovely CT6 has sharp sheetmetal creases, LED blade lenses, and other similar styling details. But because the CT6 is bigger, it stands out as the flagship, with a classic long Cadillac hood and trunk.

Interior

The CT6 boasts the finest cabin Cadillac has ever made, as it should, being the most modern flagship. The interior is rife with high-quality materials that fit as well as anything we’ve ever seen from Cadillac. Its design is spare and pure, an exciting direction for Cadillac. Yet it’s short on warmth.

It lacks the evocative flourishes of its German competition. It 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.

The driver’s seat is very firm and flat. We think 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. The pioneering rear camera mirror takes some getting used to.

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 tall passengers on either side of him or her will be fine. 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.

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. There appears to be some racing heritage in here. It’s an area where Cadillac has been extremely successful for more than a decade.

Driving Impressions

The 2.0-liter turbocharged model, 428 pounds lighter than the V6 models, is agile and light on its feet, and taut. In fact sometimes it’s too taut; if you want your CT6 to feel like a sport sedan, the four-cylinder is the way to go. But if you want more than that, the CT6 has nothing for the Mercedes AMG or BMW M models.

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 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 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.

Summary

The Cadillac CT6 is a worthy flagship. It’s sleek, light, and handles well. It’s big and roomy, quiet and luxurious, and fast enough for its purpose at three levels. The 8-speed automatic is sharp, and the three engines meet different desires. Overall we like the silky non-turbo V6 the most; but it’s hard to deny that honkin’ twin-turbo 404-horsepower baby.

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.

Options

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.
