*Full Article at LinkRemember when American luxury meant stuff like Lincoln Continentals and Towncars, Cadillac Devilles, Sevilles and Fleetwoods, Buick Park Avenues and Roadmasters, and the like? Not anymore! The Cadillac CT6-V, which ironically is cheaper than the "base" 4.2-liter V8 model (which is starting at the Platinum trim level), produces 550 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. Those 640 foot-pounds start at 3,400 rpm, which is comparable to the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat's 650 lb-ft at 4,800 rpm, as well as the BMW M5's 553 lb-ft from 1,800 to 5,700+ rpm. Oh, and the CT6-V comes with all-wheel-drive. The Mercedes-AMG E 63 S produces 627 lb-ft from 2,500 to 4,500 rpm.
The CT6-V is governed to 149 mph, but with the speed limiter lifted it can hit 200 mph (or even more), which beats the M5's 189 mph and the Mercedes-AMG E 63's 186. The Hellcat can hit 204 mph in standard-body form and 196 mph in Widebody form.
