Ahead of the New York International Auto Show media days, which begin tomorrow morning, we received our first look at the 2016 Cadillac CT6 sedan tonight at an event in Brooklyn.
And, trust us, you're going to want a look, too.
The CT6 is the first new Cadillac that will be part of a new naming structure intended to make the marque's product offerings simpler to understand. The new name tells only part of the story, as the CT6 is basically brand-new inside and out. The exterior design cautiously blends elements of CTS and XTS, but is executed to leave a bold footprint. The CT6's interior styling is a departure from any current model's, imbuing elements like the CUE infotainment system, but widening its shape with swaths of wood and soft-touch materials.
There's space for six-footers up front and in back, and—perhaps best of all—Night Vision by Autoliv will reportedly be available across all trim levels, with in-dash integration. Overall, we like how this Cadillac feels.
We're also excited about the CT6's engine trio, ranging from a familiar 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit to two six-cylinders: one biturbo and the other naturally aspirated.
Cadillac tells us that, although the CT6 is as large as a BMW 7-series, it will behave like a vehicle several size classes smaller—and weigh even less than a Mercedes-Benz C-class.
We'll have more from the show floor, as well as interviews with company executives, over the next several days. Until then, feast your eyes on this pearl-white beauty, and check out our Facebook page for more.
