The Cadillac CT6 has not yet been tested by either the NHTSA or IIHS, let alone the more expensive CT6-V. Who would want to smash up such a work of beauty in any case? We're quite confident that the CT6-V should be one of the safer cars on the road when you consider the number of standard safety features on board. Cadillac has stepped up its safety game in a serious way over the last few years and can now humble-brag over its impressive accomplishments, such as the XT6, which recently scored a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. 2020 also brings with it new standard driver assistance features for added peace of mind.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
It might not be tested, but the 2020 Cadillac CT6-V sure does come packed with safety features. Traditional safety equipment includes a first-aid kit, an eight airbag system with knee airbags for the driver and front passenger, as well as a set of large Brembo front brakes and an advanced traction control system. Over and above those features, Cadillac also throws in enhanced automatic emergency braking, a following distance indicator, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, and HD surround vision. The list of driver assistance features continues with systems such as lane change alert with side blind zone alert, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert as well as rear pedestrian alert, reverse automatic braking, and night vision assistance.

Since 2018 there have been four recalls issued for the Cadillac CT6 range of cars. The first was released in September 2018 for a faulty seat belt coupler. This was followed by issues ranging from turn signals that wouldn't self-cancel, to the incorrect installation of tire pressure sensors. No major issues have been reported on the CT6-V, and new owners can expect miles of trouble-free motoring. Cadillac will back the 2020 CT6-V with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, a four-year/50,000 mile corrosion warranty, a six-year/70,000-mile drivetrain protection warranty, as well as roadside assistance for six years or 70,000 miles, a one-year/one-visit maintenance plan, and a six-year rust-through warranty.
