Cadillac XT5 Crossover Outsells Company's Entire Sedan Lineup

  Cadillac XT5 Crossover Outsells Company's Entire Sedan Lineup <p>Will sedans become obsolete?</p>It's no secret that crossovers are taking the market, but this is certainly eye opening. Cadillac's popularity in America only furthers the strength of this claim. The luxury sedan segment for the brand consists of ATS, CT6, CTS, and CT6, all of which are successful in the manufacturer's home country. It isn't until you see it on paper that you recognize how many XT-5s are on the road today, and that's not even counting the rest of Cadillac's utility lineup.

Overview: Your momma may have called it the crook of your arm, and the Urban Dictionary offers a crude slang alternative, but we can tell you authoritatively that the soft place on the inside of your elbow is really called the cubital fossa. We’re far less certain about what to call the Cadillac CT6, because its maker assures us that this—the biggest, most luxurious, and most technologically advanced sedan in its showroom right now—is absolutely not the brand’s flagship.

Introduced for the 2016 model year and built on General Motors’ new aluminum-intensive rear-wheel-drive Omega architecture, the CT6 is close to the size of the standard BMW 7-series (the one we don’t see in America anymore, because we only get the stretched-wheelbase version). Prices start in the mid-$50K range and can run well past $90,000. What’s least flagship-like about it is the range of powertrain offerings. Starting with a 265-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four driving the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic, the CT6 offers a pair of optional V-6s, both with all-wheel drive. The naturally aspirated 335-hp 3.6-liter occupies the middle ground, while the performance option is a twin-turbo 3.0-liter generating 404 horsepower. Other luxury marques offer similar turbo fours and sixes in their top sedans, but they also tend to offer V-8 or even V-12 engines.

Cadillac has a turbocharged 4.2-liter V-8 coming, but even when the CT6 gets it, probably in 2019 models, we’re told that car won’t be the Cadillac flagship, either. Watch for something bigger and more flashily styled, like the Escala concept but still using a version of the Omega platform, to play that role. If Cadillac has a flagship today, then, it must be the Escalade SUV.

For this review, we drove a 2017 Cadillac CT6 Platinum equipped with the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 and all-wheel drive. This one had premium paint ($500 worth of Crystal White tricoat), a $495 spoiler, and optional 20-inch wheels ($2095), for a window sticker of $91,580. We took it to the track to get a fresh reading on its performance abilities. It accelerated slightly better than the previous model we tested and suffered only a little in braking and skidpad grip on all-weather rather than summer tires.

2017 Cadillac Escalade

  2017 Cadillac Escalade Curbside presence, sold in bulk.Still, like that ’66 Caddy, the Escalade makes a big statement, whether we’re talking about the standard-length version or the 20.4-inch-longer Escalade ESV, which rides on a wheelbase stretched an additional 14.0 inches. The ESV provides an expansive 39 cubic feet of space behind its third row, while the stubbier Escalade offers a mere 15 cubes behind its rearmost row—four fewer than what you’ll find beneath the trunklid of the Chevrolet Impala. The ESV’s long wheelbase also allows passengers in its standard third row to sit more comfortably, as there’s 34.5 inches of rear legroom, 9.

Motor Trend reviews the 2017 Cadillac CT 6 where consumers can find detailed information on specs, fuel economy, transmission and safety.

The 2017 Cadillac CT 6 has a spare, light appeal that runs counter to its German rivals; with a starting price in the ,000s, it's a great value, too.

What’s New: While we look forward to the boosted V-8, the one powertrain Cadillac offers on the CT6 right now that we haven’t tested yet is a plug-in hybrid edition, built in China, that arrived late in the 2017 model year. It uses the turbocharged 2.0-liter and a pair of 100-hp electric motors and can go up to a claimed 30 miles on electricity alone. The CT6 plug-in (it’s treated as a separate model) claims a 62-MPGe combined rating from the EPA and has a base price of $76,090. Touted for late 2017 introduction but now delayed until the 2018 model year is Super Cruise, a hands-off semi-autonomous feature that should rival those offered by other high-end luxury sedans. Otherwise, the CT6 that arrived for 2016 is largely unaltered this year.

What We Like: We especially enjoy driving the CT6, which delivers sports-sedan-grade handling, steering, and braking responses that are among the best in the full-size luxury-sedan class. It drives like a smaller car, a feat few of these behemoths have mastered. The CT6 needs more power to measure up against performance models from Audi, BMW, Jaguar, and Mercedes-Benz, but it has the moves to play in that league.

Cadillac CTS Development Mules Can Communicate With Traffic Lights

  Cadillac CTS Development Mules Can Communicate With Traffic Lights <p>New tech undergoes testing on public streets in Michigan</p>During tests on public roads in Michigan, the development vehicles were able to receive information from traffic signals via Dedicated Short-Range Communications technology. This data alerts vehicles if they are about to run a red light at their current speed. Armed with this knowledge, drivers can hopefully avoid having to make the decision to either brake abruptly or accelerate through the intersection at the last second.

It’s also pioneering with some distinctively digital-age technological comforts, including in-car streaming video displayed on 10.0-inch screens, a 34-speaker audio system engineered with Bose, and a 360-degree video-surveillance system. Oh, and there’s the interior rearview mirror that’s really a wide-angle high-def video generated by a rear-mounted camera.

What We Don’t Like: The Cadillac User Experience, more commonly known as the CUE system, for managing nearly everything inside the cabin continues to be irritatingly obtuse, although the CT6 benefits from updated software and a reconfigured button field for the climate control. And while the interior materials are properly luxurious and well fitted, there are too many of them, with multiple colors and surface textures of leather and wood, sometimes with a scrap of carbon fiber or aluminum slapped in just because. It seems less like an elegant room than one showcasing an expensive quilt.

Before we deal with the 2017 Cadillac CT 6 ’s perks and peculiarities, understanding the CT 6 we’re testing is vital.

Twenty-inch wheels are standard on the top Platinum trim level we tested (the option on this car was just for a different color/design), but 19s with a little more sidewall would be preferable for those of us who regularly traverse cratered roadways.

Verdict: Maybe it’s not the flagship, but the CT6 is a terrific driver’s car.

Cadillac CPO Buying Guide .
Basically, any Cadillac built since 2010 is eligible to be certified as a pre-owned vehicle, even if it isn’t being manufactured anymore. So if you’ve always wanted a Cadillac Escalade EXT, the transforming SUV-pickup, it is possible to find one that has been certified by the Cadillac dealership, as long as it’s a 2010 or newer model. But the Cadillac XLR, which was only built in 2008 and 2009, is not eligible. Inspection Process All Cadillac certified pre-owned vehicles are chosen by franchised Cadillac dealerships for the program. The dealers select the vehicles to participate in the program based on the history of each vehicle, which usually involves a verified history of service with factory dealers. By the same token, every certified Cadillac can be serviced at any Cadillac dealership in the United States. The inspection covers 172 points and includes everything you would assume it should: an under-hood inspection, an under-vehicle inspection, an interior and exterior inspection, and a road test. And the dealership will perform all scheduled maintenance before offering the vehicle for sale. If any safety recalls were issued for a particular model, all repairs and replacements regarding that recall must be performed before the vehicle can be sold as a certified pre-owned Cadillac. Warranty A certified pre-owned Cadillac comes with a six-year/100,000-mile limited warranty.
