I got the opportunity to see the Cadillac CT6 full-size sedan in person today. It was wonderful.
I went to Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach today. Let me tell you – that was amazing. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of posts and photos released in the coming days. Stay tuned for that, but today’s topic of discussion is the all-new Cadillac CT6.
I saw the Cadillac CT6 in person today. It was locked, because it was already sold. It sold for $200,000 for charity, and was located in the Chevrolet booth safely indoors and proudly on display.
If you’ve been reading AutoWaffle for awhile, or if you know me personally, you already know that Chevrolet is my favorite car company. I do not hide this fact, nor will I ever, but let me tell you this:
I immediately skipped over all the Chevrolets on display, including a 2015 Corvette Z06 (with Z07 package) and made a bee line for the Cadillac CT6.
I was not disappointed.
My initial impressions are as follows….
The Cadillac CT6 downright beautiful; stunning, even. If you disagree, you’re probably insane, or blind, or stuck in the 1960s. That’s okay. We still like you, you’re just wrong.
The Cadillac CT6 has got PRESENCE. This thing is huge. Remember – this has a longer wheelbase than the S and 7. No, it’s not longer than a ’94-96 Fleetwood Brougham, often praised as the “last” full-size true Cadillac by many enthusiasts of the brand, but you know what? It’s also not sporting 4 total feet of rear overhang.
The interior of the CT6 is STUNNING. Sadly, as I mentioned above, the car was locked, because it was already sold, but from what I could see, it was amazing. The wood trim looks great. The layout seems wonderful, and everything seems to be proportional and nothing too exaggerated or understated. I can’t wait to get an opportunity to get up close and personal
The details are spot on. I love the crests on the fenders – they add a touch of class. The wheels look awesome, pushed out toward the corners. The greenhouse looks inviting and spacious. What more could you ask for?
Americans have been clamoring for YEARS for Cadillac (or Lincoln, but let’s be realistic here) to build a proper full-size sedan to take on the Germans. With the new Cadillac CT6, I believe that they have succeeded. When the new V8 arrives, this car will be like no other. If they do a long-wheelbase version, it will have no peers.
This, my friends, is a PROPER Cadillac.
