This is how big the all-new Cadillac CT6 is

MotorTrend gets right to the point, read on:

Quote:
The CT6 is a full-size RWD luxury sedan. How full-size? Wheelbase is a pretty good indicator of overall carriage. The CT6's wheelbase measures 122.4 inches. How does that compare to other cars? Well, Caddy's own CTS has a 114.6-inch wheelbase, and our 2014 Car of the Year is pretty big to begin with. Cadillac's XTS has a 111.7-inch wheelbase. Going outside the brand and looking at the competition, the Mercedes-Benz S550 has a 124.6-inch wheelbase. But before you go screaming at Cadillac for not being big enough, please note that the S550 we get in the States is actually the long-wheelbase S-Class, the V222. In most of the rest of the world you can purchase the regular W222, which rides on a 119.5-inch wheelbase. The wheelbase is the only exact measurement Cadillac will cop to (who knows why), but we have "preliminary estimates" for the other dimensions: 204-inch length, 74-inch width, and a very specific 57.9 inches tall. The S-Class that we Yanks can buy? 206.5 x 74.8 x 58.9.

the CT6 is in a funny place, going by rival lineups it sits between the 5 and 7 series ( E and S, A6 and A8) and they;re on record saying there is another one coming. I do think the CTS will get resized again as it no longer has to try and pull customers from higher segments...

I'm pretty sure that they are planning to make another CT model that has a longer wheelbase. That could fill in the gaps that you are talking about @Lez.
