2016 Cadillac CT6 Included In Semi-Autonomous Vehicle Comparison Test2
The rise of autonomous vehicles has been upon us for over a decade. It was small, baby steps at first, but we’ve now approached a time where, theoretically, some vehicles are capable of driving themselves for lengthy periods of time with human supervision.
This meant it was time for Motor Trend to take a few of automakers’ most recent forays into semi-autonomous driving and understand which systems worked best, and how each system differed. It’s relevant here because the publication also included a 2016 Cadillac CT6.
The 2016 CT6 registers as a “1” on the autonomous scale, with a “5” registering as fully autonomous, no human needed. But, it will be a starting point before Super Cruise arrives in the near future for the CT6, which promises a meaningful driving assistant with General Motors’ latest technology.

Got to love the car mags. They will wait until the newest of the new models from BMW and Japanese brands are out, then rush to test them against older GM brands and declare the BMWs and others as the winner, more refined, etc. They will even “comparison test” a BMW that isnt even out for another 6 months or more, and BMW is happy to oblige. They will also do their best to choose the equipment that makes it better for their favorite brands to succeed in tests, and will ignore that the model might be up to $20,000 in some instances…And then declare it “better.”
But they will never wait for the newest generation of GM car or even other American brands. Sometimes even “forgetting” to include cars that are only a month away from launch.
Bias in the media? You bet.
I was a bit surprise the prototype CT6 was in this test when I turned to the page.
