In a First Test review of the 2017 Cadillac CT6 , we felt the -liter turbo provided adequate acceleration given the size of the sedan. With less weight up front, this CT6 has an almost even weight distribution that results in stable cornering and good grip. The sedan offers a decent ride quality but the eight-speed automatic is neither smooth nor as responsive as it should be. The CT6 offers a nice interior but the quality lags behind rivals and the rear center seat cannot fit an adult. The CUE infotainment was difficult to use and completely crashed during testing.
The base T/A’s order book opens at $38,490, but you’ll need a sizable $46,090 to step into the 392, about five grand less than the full SRT 392 model. But at $53,995, the final tally on this example surpassed even that mark, thanks to options such as the $1695 Leather Interior group (heated and ventilated front seats, aluminum trim bezels, a power tilting and telescoping steering column with a heated wheel), a $1595 Harman/Kardon premium audio system, the $1195 Technology group (adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beams, forward-collision warning, rain-sensing wipers), and the $1095 Driver Convenience group (HID headlights, remote starting, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection).
