The 2018 Cadillac CT6 is a prestige sedan that is secure, comfortable and powerful! Last week, I had the chance to do more than just test drive this brand new Twin Turbo 3.0, I was able to spend a week with it and integrate it into my lifestyle. While this blog post is not about the 404 hp twin-turbocharged 3.0 V6 specs that makes this car one of the fastest car from Cadillac, this article is about my 7 favourite features from the CT6 that makes it one of the most secure on the market as well as one of the most advanced when it comes to technology.
(Please note that the order has no importance)
The 2018 Cadillac CT6 has seven exterior cameras that are a great assets when it comes to parking and night vision. This car also has the rear camera mirror, when turned on, your rear view mirrors streams HD video of what lies behind you. This less obstructed view offers significantly more vision than a traditional mirror.
While the 2018 Cadillac CT6 is longer than the usual berline, this car is not the easiest car to park. As mentioned previously, the 7 camera around the car does help when you are doing a back-up parking but when it comes to parallel parking, I didn’t pass that test at all, failing 5 time out of 8 (sigh… I know!) and that’s when the self parking came handy!
In addition, the self parking is easy to use, while you drive next to your desired parking spots, you decide the side that you want and if you want to do a back-up parking or parallel. The car finds the parking and all you have to worry about is to put the car on Drive & Parking and brake if you feel like you need to.
However, I have to admit that sometimes the car didn’t find the open parking , I had to drive back around to have the car find it.
3. SuperCruise Control
The new 2018 Cadillac CT6 has THE feature from the future and it is the Super Cruise feature! This feature is different from what is currently available on the market, in fact, you don’t have to keep a hand on the wheel or retake control of the car after a few seconds. Super Cruise takes over the car and make drives itself on highways for hours without driver intervention. I am still not used to it but this is great!
Here’s more information about the Super Cruise!
4. Media Environment
I am a big fan of music and the quality of the sound is important to me. The 2018 Cadillac CT6 is equipped with 34-speaker Bose Panaray sound system. The car also has rear seat entertainment system, including: 9″ screen player (Blu-Ray capable) with remote control; two 2-channel, wireless, infrared headphones; Aux on rear of centre console; sound compression; CD-R and CD-R/W; LED backlighting display; MP3!
The car has massage chair! Do I need to say more? The driver sest, the passenger seat and the 2 seats in the back can have a massage during the ride! ( As well as seat warmer)
6. Apple Car Play (as well as Android Auto)
CarPlay is iOS for your dashboard. This feature mirrors your Iphone and you can answer your text message by voice, use SIRI and use other most popular iPhone functions!
Only available for General Motors cars, I was first initiated to Onstar System when I did the RoadTrip with Chevrolet. From having a 4G hotspot in the car to be able to use it for navigation, OnStar makes the car “smarter” and it becomes more like an assistant. It is SIRI for your car.
7. Night Vision
While I had the 2018 Cadillac CT6 for a week, I had it during Halloween Night! Halloween night could be a nightmare for a driver because of the number of kids walking around and crossing the streets, you definitely don’t want an accident to happen. Night vision works only at night and detects when there’s a pedestrian in front of you! The car alert also makes the driver seat vibrates when there’s a pedestrian walking around your driving lane.
I will be honest, I didn’t wanted to give the car back! For a little prince like me, this car had pretty much all I needed! Cadillac didn’t mess around with this one and for more information about it, head over their website!
