Anything worth doing is worth doing right. That’s especially true when you are talking about a flagship vehicle. It better have all of the latest bells and whistles. The car should give consumers the distinct impression that it so advanced, it might in fact be from another planet. Or maybe that’s just how Cadillac does it.
The new Cadillac CT6 is from Earth, as far as we know, but it’s got a long list of features that are awfully futuristic. Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen said, “For the CT6 we have developed additional new body construction techniques and technologies allowing various types of advanced and lightweight materials to be combined within the manufacturing environment like never before.”
The Detroit Free Press reports that General Motors invested $300 million in the new CT6. The money went to refurbishing the GM tool shed with “205 welding robots.” These new tools and techniques will make the CT6 much lighter, improving fuel economy as well a stronger, longer-lasting body.
