2018 Cadillac CT6: Never Meant to be What it Is

The conversation and only slight controversy over what the Cadillac CT6 is on the market led us to know that Cadillac never intended for this car to be the flagship sedan of its fleet. This is a car that was built to have the high class and quality that it does, but it’s not much larger than the CTS, which was the previous top model. Whether it’s supposed to be or it’s just the best interpretation of what a Cadillac should be, the CT6 is the flagship for now and it certainly carries the torch with elegance, class, sophistication, technology and style.

The Art and Science design language the Cadillac has developed shows itself in grand fashion with the CT6. This car brings the ability to beat the other luxury models at their own game while providing an American flare for the style and the performance we want to see. This is car that’s more than what it appears to be as a classy, roomy and elegant model that you can experience and show off with pride at every level. You’ll love the ability to drive this car on a daily basis regardless of what you plan to do for the day.

The Cadillac CT6 has only been on the market for a couple of years and last year we were introduced to the plug-in hybrid model for this car.
