    A) these V6 numbers are pretty good. There's at least a 1-2 mpg AWD penalty
    B) your comparisons suck

    Um, how?

    So you want the 3.0TT to go up against the Twin Turbo V8s the Germans offer? You can't because they're more powerful, more expensive, and are TTV8s. Good luck comparing a TTV6 that's already slower than the German TT6s to those monster TTV8 powered cars.

    Here's a comparison between the CT6 3.0TT and the TTV8 German flagships:



    The CT6 4.2TT will go up against those. The CT6 3.0TT is Cadillac's answer to the 740i, A8 3.0T, and XJ 3.0TT.

    From a hp standpoint the 3.0 is more closely aligned with the German v8s

    Great, but you don't drive a car on paper. CT6 3.0TT has 404 HP, yet is basically as fast, or slower in some cases, than the "weaker" turbocharged 6 cylinder competition.

    The A8 4.0T hits 60 MPH from a stop in under four seconds. Under. Four. Seconds. That's ATS-V fast. CT6 3.0TT doesn't come anywhere close to that, and it isn't supposed to. That's why the 4.2TT exists, and that's why the 4.2TT will go up against the TTV8 Germans. That isn't the 3.0TT's role in the lineup.

    Is fuel consumption in luxury car that has 400 hp major factor ? 22,21,24 mpg..the difference is what...1,5 l/100 km max.
    Yes i agree there is some differences but i'm not sure this play major role..or?

    I still don't get it how Ct6 3.0 TT v6 is slower than Jaguar XJ 3.0 l v6SC and Audi A8 3.0 l v6 TFSI (if video is indication of true acceleration numbers)? It is lighter ,has more power...and still. Maybe there was something wrong with car (or have some sort of protection for new car..no full boost or something)

    Have these things even been tested yet? I thought all we've seen so far is the teaser stories with no instrumented testing.

    Unfortunately it seems it is only on paper..if we judge by one video.
    AUDI A8 with 420 hp has 4.6 s acceleration from 0-62 mph (not 60 mph).
    Judging by video CT6 is 1 sec slower...it is slower than 3.0 l TFSI.
    BMW 750 with 440 hp has 4.5 s from 0-60 mph.

    Wow. So if I give up 16hp from my Vsport I can gain 2mpg city and highway, all in a bigger car with AWD? Hmmmm......might need to take a closer look at the CT6.

    I don't think fuel economy will sway a buyer of a $90,000 sedan very much, but better fuel economy is always a good thing.

    I'm thinking the competition is underrated. Low 5s sound about right for an AWD 404 HP, 4,400 lb sedan from 0-60.

    Edmunds says they tested it:

    http://www.edmunds.com/cadillac/ct6/...views-2-anchor

    In Edmunds testing, a CT6 Platinum 3.0TT went from zero to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds, which is similar to that of other V6-powered large luxury sedans but slower than those fitted with turbocharged V8s. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 21 mpg combined (18 city/26 highway). Edmunds achieved 22 mpg on our highway-biased evaluation route.
    Sounds about right.

    CT6 made the CTS obsolete and then some IMHO.

    I find the comparision very interesting. For a person who buys a 4cyl midsized or compact, the MPG numbers are more important. But for someone buying a top of the line engine in a high end car, i really do not think MPG numbers matter as much to them unless they want them to brag about it to their friends.

    From a technical acheivement perspective, i am amazed they were not able to squeeze more out of an all new engine with a very new 8 speed. then get the MPG numbers of the competition who have engines that are a few years older and some larger.
