Cadillac will launch its range-topping CT6 sedan next March and it’s getting some seriously cool tech, including the industry’s first high-def video rearview mirror, though we have to say it could use a fancier name.
The first-ever CT6 will get what’s dubbed the “Full Display Mirror” mirror and Cadillac says it offers a much better visibility than traditional optical mirrors, even though it can function as both. It takes an image from a high-def camera mounted at the rear of the car and projects it onto the rearview mirror.
“The CT6 is an entirely new approach to prestige luxury, adding driving dynamics and technology while reducing the bulk of traditional large sedans,” said Johan de Nysschen, president of Cadillac. “With the CT6, Cadillac has a competitive edge: our use of advanced lightweight construction and innovative technology, it is prestige luxury reimagined.”
The CT6 will start rolling off the production lines early next year with the first models marked to go on sale in March. They’ll start at $53,495 and go upwards of $83,465 for the Platinum version.
Cadillac’s all-new 3.0L Twin Turbo V-6 engine is rated at 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. An all-new, 335-horsepower 3.6L V-6 and Cadillac’s award-winning 2.0T four-cylinder engine are also available. All engines are paired with eight-speed automatic transmissions.
- CT6 2.0L Turbo – Starting at $53,495
- CT6 3.6L V6 with AWD – Starting at $55,495
- CT6 3.0L Twin Turbo V6 with AWD – Starting at $64,395
In the cabin, along with the Rear Camera Mirror we mentioned earlier, Cadillac is also offering Enhanced Night Vision technology and a 34-speaker Bose Panaray audio system.
The CT6 will also, at some point, be available with plug-in hybrid electric technology.
