Cadillac CT6 Car Review: Wow Factor & Charisma

Cadillac CT6 Car Review: Wow Factor & Charisma
Posted: May 18, 2017

Taking your seat behind the wheel of the 2017 Cadillac CT6, the message hits you right in the face: this isn’t your father’s boxy Cadillac any more. 

You may have read the stories – the re-think General Motors has made with regards to its flagship Cadillac brand, over the past decade; the re-designs, drivetrain redevelopments, infotainment re-launches.

 


GM has made it clear they want to target younger, more affluent people to the brand, away from German competitors. 

We spent a week behind the wheel of the CT6 – on the highway, navigating the city, in sunny conditions and during torrid rain showers. We’ve driven a entire range of luxury vehicles over the past year, but what we noticed with the CT6 above all others was something you can’s design or engineer, something you can’t plan for: charisma. The car has it in spades. Bold, confident, low stance on the road, refined craftsmanship, precise handling – go down the list, the car has it all. 





Magnetic ride control auto adjusts the suspension to road quality and weather conditions, reading the road up to 1,000 times a second to react accordingly. All-wheel drive means better control, especially in the rain. 

“Elegance” is a word that encapsulates the interior of the CT6. In terms of technology inside the car, there’s a long list of options. Cadillac CUE (Cadillac User Experience) puts a whole array of information and entertainment options at your fingertips – climate, audio, OnStar, as well as apps you choose to install. CUE Phone Integration allows you to access your contact list, your music, and other information, from your iPhone. A built-in WIFI hotspot allows you to connect up to seven devices at the same time – check your email, while passengers check for phone messages.

The available Bose Panaray sound system is a difference-maker as well – that includes 34 strategically placed speakers. Designers meshed together the vehicle and audio design for a premium listening experience. Sound system is a huge selling point for buyers – but so is seat comfort. The front seats offer 20-way adjustability, and are both heated and ventilated, and offer 15 unique massage setting for those long drives. 



But back to charisma. Maybe it was the bold-faced grille, the sleek, long exterior lines, the signature vertical lights (housing LED-powered, multi-functional headlamps), the 20-inch wheels, the car’s dark Adriatic blue metallic paint. Over the week the car generated its share of looks and comments. Are you ever someplace and you feel another set of eyes on you? One morning I stopped at the lights on Lakeshore Blvd. W. in Toronto, right in the mix of the burgeoning South Core office building jungle, next to the ACC. I turned my head right and there were two young people in the car next to me, fixated on the CT6, in conversation.
 


Then a few days later, I walked out of the Metro in Liberty Village, where I had parked a car in an isolated area of the parking lot. There stood a middle-aged man, standing on the driver’s side, staring at the car. He told me he was a real estate developer and was in the market for a new luxury car. The conversation we had about it had me thinking the Cadillac had fast superceded the German cars he was looking at on his priority list for a new purchase.

“That’s a Cadillac?” he asked, when I walked up. 

However “charisma” only wins ones attention. In the end, you have to deliver the goods, and the CT6 certainly does that.
