Cadillac’s flagship CT6 is an impressive luxury car. Plush, roomy, quick, agile and high-tech, it just might be worthy of Cadillac's old slogan: “Standard of the World.” The CT6’s stellar Road Test score certainly ranks it among the best sedans. Our qualms revolve around a few interior quibbles, and the brand’s less-than-stellar predicted reliability rating.
The CT6 slots in between two defined sedan classes. It’s bigger than the premium midsized sedans with which it’s similar in price -- including the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class -- yet smaller than ultra luxury flagships such as the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series, and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
Pricing starts at $53,495 with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and rear-wheel drive, topping out at $87,495 for the Platinum trim with a twin-turbo V6 and all-wheel drive. The result is that although on paper (and in price) this big Caddy competes most closely with the midsized crowd, in the flesh it comes across as a true flagship. Our typically equipped 3.6 AWD rang in at a relatively competitive $60,395.
