Europe Spec Cadillac XT5 and CT6 Revealed

Cadillac recently presented XT5 and CT6 at the European Media Drive in Berlin, the first Cadillac models to use the new naming scheme under the companyís president, Johan de Nysschen.

Marketed as a German rival in the full-size sedan segment, the CT6 will be competing with the Mercedes S-Class, the BMW 7-Series and the Audi A8 for customers. Depending on which trim a buyer choses, the starting price can range from Ä73,500 for the entry-level Luxury trim or Ä94,500 for the Platinum trim.

What buyers canít choose is the powertrain as there is only one option. According to CarScoops, the CT6 will come with a 417 horsepower 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 petrol engine with 409 lb-ft or torque thatís paired with an eight-speed, rear wheel drive automatic transmission. That power translates into a 0-62mph time of 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 50mph (240km/h). Also, the CT6 has a C02 emissions rating of 218g/km and a combined fuel economy rating of 29.4mpg UK (9.6lt/100km).

Like the CT6, the XT5 exclusively available with a 309hp 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine with 271lb ft of torque and itís also paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. A bit slower than the sedan, the XT5 has a 0-62mph time of 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 130mph. Its C02 emissions are higher at 229gr/km and the fuel economy is lower with a combined rating of 28.2mpg.

The European pricing for the XT5 starts at Ä48,800 for the Luxury trim, Ä56,800 for Premium and Ä66,800 for Platinum.

Both models are expected to hit German showroom floors starting September 5 and the rest of Europe will see them early September too.

Just seen the new concept. Hopefully some of that will make its way to the CT6 and XT5 but right now if they can get some of that on a true flagship product, it will do a lot for them. But so far cadillac hasn't been pushing that hard on a production level.
