Cadillacís CT6 is a Technological Tour de Force
April 2, 2019
*Full Article at LinkThe Platinum edition is plenty hot, though, featuring a new three-liter twin-turbo 400-horsepower V6 coupled to a 10-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted manually. Cadillac says itís the only six-cylinder engine that combines turbocharging and stop-start technology to save fuel. The car is capable of five-second zero-to-60 times, and it handles superblyóon par with anything from Audi, BMW, or Mercedes. The only option on the test car was $700 for 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels.
The car is a technical tour de force for Cadillac, and the test car boasted electronic precision shifting, magnetic ride control, active rear steering, heated and cooled massage seats and heads-up display. A ***** at parking? The Cadillac will help.
Itís also one of the safest cars on the road. Back onto a busy road and the CT6 shakes the seat to warn of coming traffic (if you somehow missed seeing it via the rear-view camera). There are alerts for lane changes, rear cross-traffic, forward collision, and pedestrians. Ignore everything, and thereís automatic braking and automatic seat-belt tensioning.
