The 2018 Cadillac CT6 has the style and performance to match its German rivals, but is the brand there yet?

Pros
Handsome design
Inexpensive base model
Spacious rear compartment
Capable handling
31-mile plug-in hybrid range

Cons
Firm ride, all the time
Missing a few luxury amenities
Driver's seat won't suit some
No V-8, but who will want a 2.0-liter four?
Can Cadillac market a plug-in hybrid?

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 ranked #4 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the Cadillac CT6 has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 21 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Three powerful engine options
Good fuel economy with base engine
Two rows of spacious seats

Cons
Undersized trunk
Finicky touch screen

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 can best be described as a full-size luxury sedan, but it's priced like a midsize. If you like the idea of a spacious and upscale luxury sedan with a little Detroit attitude, this Cadillac fits the bill.

PROS
Plenty of rear passenger space for adults
Engaging driving experience for a large luxury sedan
Priced less than many competing sedans

CONS
Lacks the cosseting ride quality offered by competitors
Virtually no unique customizability compared to rivals
No V8 engine offered
