A few of us were caught by surprise by Cadillac’s announcement for the 2016 CT6 and how we will get to see a production version in little more than a year. But nothing prepared us for the Tweet by Automotive News showing a comment from the President of General Motors North America, Mark Reuss:
Reuss: #Cadillac #CT6 is 24 kg lighter than CTS, but 8 inches longer.
For you folks less inclined to the metric system, that’s 55 pounds less than the current CTS for a curb weight of 3,561 pounds yet measuring 203.5 inches.
Considering it was only 5 years ago that General Motors was shelving platforms and what-not before declaring Chapter 11, it’s incredible how much they’ve got their mojo back.
