Cadillac is celebrating the launch of their XT5 crossover and CT6 executive saloon in Europe, marking the brand’s expansion in the Old Continent.
Being its halo model, the new CT6 is aiming to lure customers away from the Mercedes S-Class, the BMW 7-Series and the Audi A8.
Cadillac will offer only one engine option to the customers, a twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 petrol producing 411hp (417PS) and 409lb ft (555Nm) of torque. Powered is channeled to the rear via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Performance-wise, the big Caddy deals with the 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds while top speed is rated at 150mph (240km/h). The new Cadillac CT6 returns a combined 29.4mpg UK (9.6lt/100km) with CO2 emissions rated at 218g/km.
Pricing for the new Cadillac CT6 is starting at 73,500 euros (around $82,000 in current exchange rates) in Germany in the entry-level Luxury trim with the range-topping Platinum asking from 94,500 euros ($105,400).
Similarly the new Cadillac XT5 is going to be offered with just one powertrain, a 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine with 309hp (314PS) and 271lb ft (368Nm) of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) sprint takes 7.5 seconds and the top speed is set at 130mph (210km/h). The new XT5 returns a combined 28.2mpg UK (10.0lt/100km) and 229gr/km of CO2 emissions.
Cadillac’s X5 rival is priced from 48,800 euros in Germany ($54,400 in current exchange rates) while both models are expected to arrive in European dealerships in early September.
