Cadillac’s current flagship

After years of leaks, spy shots, and endless rumors about its feasibility, the Cadillac CT6 became reality at the 2015 New York Auto Show. A replacement to the XTS, the CT6 arrived to compete against Germany’s luxury trio, which includes the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, and Audi A8. However, Cadillac also wants the CT6 to go against midsize European sedans.

The odd positioning strategy makes the CT6 similar in size to any European luxury car, as its length and wheelbase are on par with those of a BMW 7 Series short-wheelbase. On the other hand, thanks to an aluminum-intensive platform, the model weighs about as much as the smaller CTS, which is lighter than a 5 Series. Whether Cadillac’s strategy will work in the long run remains to be seen, but the CT6 seems to tick a lot of right boxes.
