I presently have a CT6 Premium Luxury model. I am happy with this car. I don’t understand why Cadillac excluded us traditional buyers for a full size car. I think it’s terrible that they are raming down our throats SUV’s. They have forgotten those traditional buyers who want a larger,car. I have bought new Cadillac’s since 1990. I have been loyal to Cadillac. It’s a shame what they did to us. I’m keeping my CT6 for as long as I could. The CT5 does not do it for me. I don’t want to go foreign, I only buy American. I do not like the SUV’s.
