General Motors’ luxury brand Cadillac has finally delivered a new flagship sedan worthy of its name and heritage – the all new CT6, which has officially been tipped for the production start early next year, in January.

When selecting the base trim level and the entry-level engine combo you get the 2016 Cadillac CT6 at $53, 495 – which earns you the rear-wheel drive option mated to the 2.0 turbocharged LTG, which churns out 272 hp and 295 pound-feet (400 Nm) of torque. If that doesn’t sound too much or too elegant since you have a four-banger under the hood, you can always go forwards to the V6 option that gets you the known 3.6-liter naturally aspirated taken from the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro that goes exclusively with all-wheel drive – you get 335 HP but the reality is the older V6 gets you less torque (10 pound-feet) compared to the base, turbocharged engine. The option will go from $55,495, but then you could actually deliver a “few” more bucks and go for the top of the line, which brings the 3.0-liter LGX V6. Thanks to twin-turbocharging, you’ll get 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque, exclusively mated to an all-wheel drive transmission system – and you’ll need to shell out $64,395.

By the way, for the eco-conscious luxury dwellers, the CT6 will also be offered in the near future in a more environmentally friendly guise – the plug-in hybrid version. The 2016 Cadillac Ct6 production will be handled by the General Motors Detroit-Hamtramck assembly facility and the model will be available in four variants: base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum. Order books have already been opened and first deliveries have been scheduled for the final part of March.
