Well, with one caveat. “How can the CT6 serve as a flagship while 6 is lesser than both 7 (as-in BMW 7-series) and 8 (as-in Audi A8/S8),” we asked ourselves.
Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen has come along to put our concerns to rest. While the boss had previously stated that the CT6 would serve as the “most agile car among in the class of top-level large luxury sedans,” he recently clarified to our friends at Motor Trend that the Cadillac CT6 is not to be the flagship we’d all thought, and that it will not be positioned against the likes of the BMW 7-series, Audi A8, or even Mercedes-Benz S-class. Wait, what?
Instead, the CT6 will reportedly offer comparable refinement and tech packed into a smaller, more agile sedan shell, making it more of an alternate approach than a direct competitor. Wait, what?
More or less, it goes against our gut instinct, as well as our intel. What we instead expect, is that the CT6 won’t be the ceiling, and that there will be perhaps something even more luxurious beyond the full-size German-luxury-sedan fighter. A Cadillac CT8, perhaps?
