While it will be some time yet before we have the full details of the coming 2016 Cadillac CT6 sedan, an anonymous insider has confirmed that the car will come equipped with massage chairs like those offered in the 2015 XTS and Escalade.
The inclusion of this feature should go a long way toward solidifying the CT6 as a formidable luxury sedan competitor to the likes of offerings from Jaguar, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz.
The 22-way adjustable seats in the 2015 XTS Premium/Platinum and Escalade Platinum models feature synonymous massage technology. They can operate in the shoulder region, back lumbar area, and/or bottom seat cushion, rolling, kneading, and relieving tension while you occupy either of the front seats.
What’s really appealing about Cadillac’s seat-massage system is that the front seat occupants can activate the system at the flip of a switch, customize settings like intensity, speed and operative regions on the central infotainment screen, and then store those settings to memory just like the seat adjustments. That means that occupants can, at the push of a button, recall their stored favorite massage settings, without having to again set up and tweak the system to their liking.
As GM Engineering Group Manager Elizabeth Hayes remarked in a release, “This feature gives customers another way to improve their drive… It is our goal to always find ways to make getting from point A to point B a little more pleasant.”
