    2016 Cadillac CT6 "Order & Reference Guide" published.

    GM has posted the online "Order and Reference Guide" for the CT6 Sedan:

    http://www.gmfleetorderguide.com/NAS...page=9&butID=3

    Link is to the "color and trim" section, with other categories clickable. Hopefully, the pricing will be released soon. Enjoy configuring the CT6 of your dreams!!! (What a shame the "CT-__ " naming scheme does not invoke any passion for the product, something all luxury products should do!) Couple the lackluster naming scheme with bland styling, and it will be difficult for this sedan to be wildly successful, even moreso if it is priced inappropriately.

    Thanks for posting this!

    5 interior colors on the CT6? Didn't they say there would be more? Speaking of the interior, I know one member is going to appreciate the "Chevron" perforated seat inserts.

    Now, we wait on pricing...

    I think you're missing "Jet Black" in its skinny column--I think that is another interior color choice. I love the idea of the perforated "Very Light Cashmere" leather interior. In fact, I wish Cadillac would even offer a White Leather, as Mercedes does with its "Designo" series, and Lincoln does with its "Black Label" editions. If done appropriately, it would look really sharp! Of course, critics will say I'm too much of a traditionalist--Cadillac seems to be doing all it can to distance itself from its past--a big mistake, in my opinion! Too much great heritage to ignore!

    Looks like they're ditching the trim levels. Luxury, performance, and premium for level 1, 2, and 3

    Derp, I can't count.

    A few observations:

    1.) 8 speaker Bose system is standard on Base models. That's... adequate?
    2.) Why on Earth is Adaptive Cruise Control restricted to only the top two trims? I don't like that.
    3.) 14 way seats are standard. Nice, I like that.
    4.) BLIS isn't standard. Meh, I would have liked to see that standard.
    5.) LED headlights are standard. Nice, I like that.
    6.) Intellibeam is an option on the base model, but standard on everything else. Same with Rainsense.
    7.) 2.0T makes the same amount of power as ATS and CTS; 272 HP and 295 TQ.
    8.) 2.0T only has one exhaust. 3.6L and 3.0TT have the dual twin exhausts.
    9.) 3.6L makes 335 HP and 285 TQ. Nice.
    10.) 3.0TT makes 400 HP and 400 TQ. Sweet.
    11.) Stop-start is standard on all engines. Nice.

    Yup, I saw that when I switched to the 3.0TT option from the drop down thing.

    A fully loaded CT6 is 4,400 lbs. Not bad, but weight sure does add up quick from the 2.0T RWD Base model. Oh well.

    Level 2 looks like the business. It'll probably be the volume package.I hope they make the 12" cluster available on other trims besides Platinum and Level 3.

    AWD and the V6 engines add a ton of weight. Looks like 100lb weight difference between the LGX and LGW. Does anybody know if the 3.0TT uses the 8L90 or the 8L45 like the other engines.

    I think the volume trims will be 3.6L Level 1 and 3.6L Level 2.

    Yeah, but 3.0TT Level 2 to 3.0TT Platinum adds 300 lbs., 3.0TT Level 3 to 3.0TT Platinum adds 220 lbs. I wonder what makes the Platinum so heavy?

    Probably additional equipment..but it is still light.
    Will be interesing too see how much will V8 TT add..i think Jaguar XJR v8 is lightest luxury sedan with V8 but i'm not sure..might be wrong here.
