Bruce Nunnally Posted November 4, 2017 Report Share Posted November 4, 2017 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?
