The granddaddy Caddy that's long overdue.
This is a huge deal for Cadillac. For some time we've been hearing about a large rear-wheel-drive flagship sedan but unfortunately, due to circumstances (like GM's bankruptcy), the project was continuously delayed. That's all about to end on March 31st. Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen has confirmed the new CT6 flagship will have its world debut in just two months' time, just ahead of the New York Auto Show where it'll also go on full display.
The CT6, which we've seen in prototype form thanks to previous spy shots, will ride on GM's new Omega large car platform and will incorporate aluminum and other lightweight building methods to cut down weight. Power will probably come from a longitudinally-mounted twin-turbo V6, with power being sent to the rear wheels. AWD will be optional, as will a plug-in hybrid version. GM's patented Magnetic Ride Control technology will also be fully utilized. Remember, this is the granddaddy Caddy that'll take on the likes of the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. No room for mistakes here. More details on the way soon.
