Posted by

The Cadillac CT6 is an all-new flagship luxury sedan, which Cadillac hopes will position the brand to take on full-size luxury competitors like Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi.

What is It?

The Cadillac CT6 is a full-size, full-luxury automobile that will compete with cars like the BMW 7-Series and the Audi A8.


What is Cadillac Saying?

“The CT6 is nothing less than an entirely new approach to premium luxury – and an approach only Cadillac can offer,” said Johan de Nysschen, president of Cadillac. “It is a bold endeavor with unmatched dynamism that reignites a passion for driving in large luxury vehicles. In short, it is prestige luxury reimagined.”
