2018 Cadillac CT6 review: Our expert's take

By Brian Normile

Once again, our review of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler sits atop our weekly rankings. Cars.com reviewer Aaron Bragman — himself a proud owner of the previous JK generation of the Wrangler — praises Jeep for doing away with the “yeah, buts” of buying a Wrangler with the new JL model. Second place, however, belongs to a newcomer to our rankings.

It’s a newcomer to our site, as well. Only published Aug. 31, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 review rockets into second place. Calling it a car for those “who want the dessert before the meat and potatoes,” reviewer Fred Meier praises the CX-3 for its styling and handling chops, while noting that the small, low-slung “SUV” is really more of a hatchback with limited backseat and cargo space compared to its rivals.

Ultimately, Meier notes, “The carlike CX-3 carves its own niche, so its value depends on whether its strengths match what you want most for your daily driving.”

Over on the video side of things, our sister site PickupTrucks.com’s recent comparison of two 2018 Toyota trucks, the mid-size Tacoma and full-size Tundra, tops the list of most watched videos. If you’re in the market for a pickup truck and are trying to determine which size of truck is right for you, it’s a must-watch.

Amazing...and American!

Recently bought a used CT6 w/2.0 Turbo (2018 with 39K miles). Have put only about 500 miles on it so far, but, WOW!!! This car is amazing! This car lives up to it's reputation as a builder of premium American luxury vehicles. My las t Cadillac was a 2000 STS...which was mediocre by comparison. It is soooo beautiful inside. I like that the screen is integrated into the dashboard. It's size takes a bit of getting used to, as my last car was a Mercedes E250. I test drove the 2.0 turbo and the 3.0, and found the 2.0 Turbo to be equally responsive but smoother. Exterior styling is simple clean and exudes luxury. I get so many compliments, heads turns and such. I love the Apple Car Play feature that projects what's on my phone to the in-dash screen. Recently did a road trip and got an AVERAGE of 33.4 MPG on the highway. I am getting 25 MPG+ around town. To me, that's pretty impressive for a car his size. In keeping with Cadillac's reputation, this car drives so smooth and quiet. Last time I drove a car this quiet and smooth as a Lexus LS460. At $30K less than the price of an average EV, it will take a lot of gas to make up the cost difference of those overpriced cars.

A Praise-Worthy American Luxuray Automobile

Having had my 2018 Cadillac CT6, equipped in the optional Premium-Luxury trim level, for nearly 3 years, I can honestly boast of its many attributes. It offers wonderful styling inside & out, the availability of virtually every current "high-tech" option conceivable, and has proven to be consistently reliable – and, while some may describe it as a bit “pricey,” it’s actually a relative bargain, when compared to its European competitors. The CT6 harkens back to the classic Cadillac sedans of years gone by, as its size, comfort, and luxury amenities remind owners and admirer’s alike, of many of those all-American classics. Although it's a pleasure to drive, even when equipped with the new and improved, 3.6L V6, the optional 3.0L Twin Turbo engine is recommended for those drivers who like a “little something extra” when depressing the accelerator pedal. With regard to performance, it is somewhat regrettable that an (optional) V8 is unavailable in the company’s “Flagship model.” This absence, I suspect, is a rather obvious "nod” to the so-called green energy movement that seems to have “infected” the entire auto industry, of late. In summary, if you’re looking for a full-sized American luxury car – look no further. The Cadillac CT6 “fits that bill, to a tee.”

5.0

Car is a pleasure to drive.

My vehicle is an excellent car to drive. The CT6 is a great handling, smooth, comfortable driving vehicle. This is my third Cadillac that I am driving and plan on continuing to drive one.
