It's a great time to be following luxury cars. Several companies are really hitting their stride: Acura has several great cars, virtually every Lexus is compelling and Infiniti continues to build cars that effortlessly combine luxury and performance.

The two big players in American-style luxury don't seem to be doing as well, however. Lincoln has as few standouts like the MKC (an excellent small luxury SUV), the beautiful MKZ and now, the attention-grabbing Continental Concept. Cadillac has been making really great cars, but the message hasn't been getting out the way we'd hope.

More Luxurious

With the Cadillac CT6, though, the message is pretty clear: Cadillac is looking to crank up the luxury factor by a few notches. In describing the CT6, Cadillac uses terms such as "exquisitely crafted," "prestige," "standard for excellence" and "superb driving experience."

We're also expecting tons of great tech inside the new Cadillac CT6. While Cadillac's CUE information and entertainment system has been criticized, it does offer many compelling features in one package. We're hoping the new CT6 will offer cutting-edge and elegant solutions for connectivity and safety in addition to known features such as a Bose Panaray audio system, a 10.2-inch touchscreen and newly improved night vision.

Under the hood is a 3.6-liter V6 making 355 horsepower, and there's also a twin-turbo 3.0 liter V6 that should make close to 400 hp.

According to Cadillac, production of the full-size 2016 CT6 will begin late this year, so expect the brand's new luxury liner to arrive in dealer showrooms in early 2016.
