We absolutely love the Cadillac CT6. It provides the perfect balance of top-level luxury in a large sedan package, outstanding performance, and a range of gadgets and gizmos that most have come to expect of vehicles in this category. Well, later this year, spring of 2017 to be exact, Cadillac will start offering the all-new 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid.
The 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid couples a new rear-wheel-drive electric variable transmission to a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine to produce an outstanding 335 horsepower with a maximum torque of 432 lb-ft. That allows the Cadillac CT6 Plug-in Hybrid to go from zero to sixty in just 5.2 seconds, which is very comparable to its V6 competitors. Each motor produced about 100 horsepower and allows for a total 30 miles on electric power alone at a top speed of up to 78 mph. With the engine in and electric motors working in full harmony, the 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid can achieve a top speed of 150 mph.
While we don’t have the full-range figures just yet, Cadillac says that the CT6 Plug-In Hybrid will have an estimated fuel economy of 65 MPGe**.
“The CT6 is a technological showcase throughout, and by far the lightest car in its class, making it an ideal platform for electrification,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “In the CT6, Cadillac presents a new formula for prestige luxury. The advanced Plug-In system is a key addition, providing a combination of exceptional fuel economy, crisp acceleration, and strong electric-driving range.”
The 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-in Hybrid will go on sale in the United States this fall with a price tag starting at $75,095*. It will come with a bunch of standard options that are comparable to the existing Premium Luxury model.
*MSRP excluding tax, license, registration, destination charge and options. Dealer prices may vary.
**Based on 2017 EPA mileage ratings. Your mileage will vary depending specific vehicle trim, how you drive and maintain your vehicle, driving conditions, and other factors.
