      Neither sighting aligned with opportunity away from traffic.   One would suppose they get that all the time too.

  16. Cadillac CT6 and My Favorite Murder https://t.co/bKUJimlLod @MyFavMurder

  17. One of my Wife’s birthday presents in August was a trip to see Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstack from the My Favorite Murder podcast live when they were to be in Dallas. The PodCast live performance was this November weekend, and what better weekend for us to have a 2018 Cadillac CT6 in the driveway for the ride downtown? The CT6 is the largest Cadillac sedan, with a huge 122.4″ wheelbase — the space between the front and rear axles. That’s almost a foot longer than the other large Cadillac sedan, the XTS. I had driven a CT6 Platinum with the 3L TT but had not tried the ‘standard’ CT6 with 2L Turbo or 3.6L V6. In a way this weekend’s test drive was a delight to find just how much Cadillac one can get for a least expensive CT6, around ~$50K. The test CT6 had the LGX 3.6L autostop, variable displacement V6 engine for 345 hp. The all wheel drive (AWD) system requires no attention, but gives you the benefit of four wheel propulsion if the weather or conditions demand. A lot of our CaddyInfo fans have expressed concerns about start/stop, but I am getting quite used to it. Start/stop technology is when the car automatically turns the engine off when stopped, then turns it back on when or before you need to proceed. There is a button on the dash to turn this feature off, but I think the more time we spend with it the more we will trust the Cadillac will handle it and let it do so. The real treasure of the CT6 design is it is a full size car with the svelte shape of a midsize For our drive down to the historic Majestic Theater in downtown Dallas, I hooked up a USB cable and my iPhone so we could use the huge 10″ center infotainment display for navigation. The route was pretty easy, except we knew one of the bridges on the way was under construction and impassable. Also, once I get downtown in Dallas I find careful planning and route management are the order of the day. Parking in a local public parking garage was uneventful — we bypassed the ‘compact car’ sections for an open area higher up where the CT6 could have some room. We arrived early for the Podcast show, and walked over to Dallas Chop House for coffee and dessert in the lounge area. That worked out very well for enjoying our wait, but we footnoted it for a return trip for a full steak dinner another trip. The My Favorite Murder Live! 10:30 pm show started late, but was engaging and funny. Our seats in the theater were front-row after the orchestra pit, and we laughed throughout the two woman show about every but murders, and murders. My Wife is a big fan of the podcast. We had VIP tickets and we stayed after the show for my Wife to meet and have a picture taken with the Stars. Ann (center) with the Podcast stars, Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstack The drive home went very well, with the CT6 happy cruising at the speedlimit and limited traffic due to the very late hour. Overall I enjoyed the weekend test drive. My favorite features of the CT6: Wonderful seating and view out the front, huge leg room and space in the rear seats Variable displacement V4/V6 feature — I like the power of the LGX V6 but I would like to explore the ability to go into V4 mode and get much better fuel economy more. Selectable Dash display — although limited to 2 selections in this model. My nits about the CT6: Cadillac should have gone even more dramatic with the styling I would make a Heads Up Display a standard feature; this model did not have it The 3.6L V6 and 3L TT V6 are only available in AWD, not RWD. Crest Cadillac in Frisco, Facebook, provided the car for this test drive. I am also a Crest Cadillac customer — I bought my ATS-V there, and recommend them to others. View the full article
  18. CT6 - 4 Ways to Enjoy it

    I am enjoying it. Terrific view out; hard to describe but the greenhouse visibility is quite good. The v6 has start/stop AND is a v4/v6. I watch to see how to ease it in to v4 mode steady state for max mpg.
  19. CT6 - 4 Ways to Enjoy it

    Cadillac's large sedan, the CT6, came to market in a time of low gas prices when people wanted to move to SUVs and Trucks. Available with the 265hp 2L Turbo, 335 hp V6 LGX, or 404 hp TT V6 LGW or a 31 mile hybrid system plus the 2L turbo. The LGW has start/stop technology, where the 464 hp 3.6L TT LF4 in the ATS-V does not. For max mpg the 2L TT four seems the answer, rated at 22/30 mpg. The Hybrid offers commuters full electric operation, at a cost of extra weight for the battery which offsets the CT6 design -- a full size sedan at a small sedan weight. However, because I use my sedan principally for commuting, doing so in electric mode both ways could lead to almost no gas usage in normal use. Only airport transits would exceed the 31 mile range. Is the Hybrid a better 2L Turbo setup? It does boost power from 265 hp to 325 combined hp. However, the hybrid weight pushed the 2L+Hybrid sedan to 4567 lbs from the straight 2L weight of 3657 lbs, adding 910 lbs. I think I could enjoy either, but it would be for different reasons. The 2L 2L as a low weight large car -- the CT6 design hallmark. The Hybrid as an all-electric commuter with a gas tank for longer trips. I am drawn to the 404 hp 3L TT variant as well of course. If you were buying a CT6 which variant would you prefer?

  21. CT6 - 4 Ways to Enjoy it

    The review example ended up being a CT6 V6 AWD so very close to your plan!

Do you suppose this engine could run with the EFI injectors running on the input side of the super charger? I am not trying to achieve greater HP. I am wanting the Super Charger to act upon the A/F mixture to increase vaporization. A penny for your thoughts. Thanks! Gene
