The 2016 Cadillac CT6 is the a newcomer in a segment which is currently dominated by the German luxury sedans.

The 2016 Cadillac CT6 is going to come with eight speed automatic transmission and in the future will be offered ten speed automatic transmission as an option.

The manufacturer has decided to build the car on the brand new Omega platform (this means that the car is going to have rear wheel drive) and according to the official statement, they are going to use a combination of lightweight materials, which is something that no other GM model has. Aluminum is going to be the main component of the car.
On the front of the new CT6 new design of the iconic vertical headlights (something that Cadillac has known for), that splits in two parts – one LED daylights and the other are regular headlights. The chrome grille dominates the front and it really accentuates what kind of car CT6 is. The sides look really similar to any larger Audi, but the back of the car is just as unique as the front.
