If on the other hand you are looking for the best handling and most fun large luxury sedan in America, then this Cadillac is for you. Next year should being a new twin turbo V8 which will likely also make the CT6 one of the best performance buys as well. Until then how does it stack up with the BMW, Mercedes and other competition? Let's find out.

      One of the most detailed reviews on the CT6, looks like an all around decent car. 2018 will bring a V8 engine. Cadillac is getting their act together! 👍

      Haven’t even considered purchasing an American car for years because of quality issues. Don’t know what it is but I love this car. I hope they fix the cue system, if so I’m sold.

      Interesting - Car & Driver get a completely different result for cargo space - 6 bags for the CT6 vs only 3(!!) for the 7-series, and they say it's due to the better *shape* of the CT6 trunk. However, they used 22" bags - not 24" like you did. By the way, I can't find any review of the 7-series where you demonstrate cargo capacity with 24" bags - do you have a link?

      Do the 7-series reclining seats eat into trunk space? If so, are they an option, or is it standard?

      This thing is awesome! I would wait for an AWD option though. I would still take this car vs the Germans any day of the week though. Why? Cost of ownership. The cost of ownership for this Cadillac is far lower than the Germans. That and it actually works. The Germans would spend more time in the shop than on the road.

      Lexus is awesome and all but I still have yet to see a Lexus sedan better than what they put out 15 years ago though. 5 seconds to 60? For a car that big? That is a LET DOWN for some people?

      Well the ATS and CTS are both rear-wheel drive sedans, while the XTS is the only front wheel drive sedan in their lineup similar to that of the Continental which is a rebatch Taurus front wheel drive

      Darrell May I can agree with you bro..!! Who wants a gas guzzler drinking luxury car..? People are forgetting Cadillac's are made for cruising not for 🏁 racing..!! If customers want speed buy a motorcycle or corvette stingray or dodge charger

      7:45 - Jesus... look at the disjoint lines on the door between the wood trim, control panel and door panel. American car makers are still long way to go.

      Cadillac's pricing structure is ridiculous.  They price their cars with Mercedes and BMW but then they don't sell and they sit on the lot until they discount the hell out of them.  They should emulate genesis and start with a lower price.

      Potential customers interested in the CT6 need to know that concern has been raised on the potential crash worthiness significance of this vehicle, as Cadillac has been to the present point in time, completely resistant to submitting a vehicle to both the IIHS and NHTSA after almost 2 years of production......Before considering the vehicle and placing yourself and your family members behind the wheel, take the time to further consider this scenario.......

      1:45 size: thanks for giving the SWB A8 version, which is smaller than CT 6, and which is sold domestically in Germany and most part of Europe

      My CT6 test drive was enough to order and buy a 2017. After nine months of ownership, this Cadillac is by far the worse new vehicle experience that I've had. Poor build quality, mechanical issues, design weaknesses and a clunking, jerking, surging transmission that failed at 2,500 miles and needed a replacement. Spends more time on the dealership lift than on the road.

      Sorry to hear about your poor experience. Do you still have the CT6 and did they ever get the bugs out? I had a bad experience with my last new Cadillac in 2005 but I have always been very satisfied with every Lincoln I've owned and they've been reliable, too. I was thinking about giving Cadillac another chance and buying a CT6 but reading your comment tells me that I need to replace my Continental with a new Continental.

      I got mine a month ago, and few things already fell apart, the mirror went wacky at all time, then the cruise control went haywire, and I almost had an accident, I just swapped it with a Benz and lost so much money.

      Not surprised. Wayyyyy too much new technology jammed into one car. They couldn’t even manage to sell me an impala where the rims don’t constantly bend. I think I’ve finally given up on GM. I guess the first bailout from us, the taxpayer, wasn’t enough for them to get their act together.
