Three trim levels comprise the Cadillac CT6 sedan range, with two engines split between the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum models. The two bottom trims boast a 3.6-liter V6 to get their wheels turning, while the Platinum trim hosts a twin-turbocharged 4.2-liter V8. Both engines are mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission.
Standard features from base level include a panoramic sunroof and remote start as well as keyless entry, push-button start, a multifunction leather-clad steering wheel. Dual-zone climate control is also included along with 14-way power-adjustable heated seats. A 10.2-inch touchscreen enables Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth streaming through an eight-speaker sound system. Standard safety features include a rearview camera, ABS, teen driver system and park distance control, with Cadillac’s Super Cruise added from the mid-tier trim.
The most affordable way of entry into the CT6 lineup is the base-level Luxury trim that has an MSRP of $58,995. Its price point is way below that of the BMW 7 Series and the S-Class Sedan's $97,250 asking price. At mid-level, the Premium Luxury has a starting price of $74,495, considerably higher than the base model. The top of the range Platinum trim boasts a twin-turbo V8, but this comes with a much heavier MSRP of $96,495. A $995 destination fee is applicable to your purchase of any CT6 model.
For the Luxury and Premium Luxury, the Exterior Accent Package adds 20-inch wheels and a sporty rear spoiler for $3,995. The Premium Carpet Package adds a carpeted trunk mat and carpeted floor mats for $410.
With the trim lineup slashed to just three models for the new year, our pick of the simplified litter would be the mid-spec Premium Luxury as it adds a significant amount of extra features over the base model, and offers a more luxurious experience, thanks to the addition of a digital instrument cluster and quad-zone climate control. Adaptive cruise control and a head-up display are also added to the trim. We think it's the best CT6 of them all because it offers more convenience over the Luxury models, but avoids the exorbitant asking price and bigger fuel bills that accompany the Platinum model.
