    Being the ‘dyed in the wool’ Ford/Lincoln fan that I am (and a former owner of a Continental), it isn’t a hard choice for me….. the Continental is the one.

    But to be honest, I like what Cadillac is doing with the CT6. Not a fan of the front end design, but pretty much everything else is very interesting. It also seems as if Caddy is working hard to give CT6 buyers a lot to choose from in drivetrains etc.

    But, give me the Black Label Continental with AWD, those 30 way seats and all the intricate styling details with a the idea of driving a traditional American luxury sedan again, and I am there.

    In all honesty I have to go with the Lincoln. At first I didn’t like it, but now that I keep looking at it I like it more and more and I really have no idea as to why.

    The Continental is the best looking American sedan right now, inside out. That dark wood is crazy beautiful, and so are the speaker vents. Seats in blue are unparalleled, and headlights and grill one of the most beautiful on any car.

    I’m not too enamored with the Lincoln Continental’s styling, as I find it too similar to Bentley’s Continental, and anyone who knows me knows I do not like FWD proportions(particularly dash-to-axle), especially on larger cars, in which there’s no excuse to sticking to a drivetrain layout created for a microcar with packaging constraints.  This is why I generally applaud FWD cars that try to minimize the appearance of FWD, like the Audi A4/5, the Mazda6, and especially that Volvo concept coupe that solved the problem by doing what I’ve been saying since about when I first showed up at MT all those years back, and flipped the FWD drivetrain around so that the motor is BEHIND the front axle(like they used to be before the ’59 Mini…)…

     

    Or, just do what is more befitting a large luxury sedan, and be RWD, like the CT6(and S-class, 7-series, Mulsanne, Phantom…)…

    Cadillac, imo, nailed this one.

    The price of the Platinum, along with all its amenities is priced dead on with the Lexus LS460 F AWD

    $83,325 vs CT6 Platinum model starting at $83,465. These are most comparable too.. as the HP rating of the Lexus V8 are 386 hp/367 ft-lbs. versus the Cadillac TTV6 at 400HP/400 ft-lbs.

    The CT6 took mandatory luxury features and space the Europeans and Lexus, then.. encroached and clobbered the ideals put forth by the upcoming Ford.. er.. Mercury.. er Lincoln Continental. The Price point the Continental will have to come in will have to be in the high $30Ks… the Germans all come in in the high $70ks. Their starting point is where CT6’s end point is. The CT7/CT8 picks up from where CT6 leaves off. This is like a one two punch of massive proportions because it redefines the ideas of luxury without even having to call it “niche.” Bottom line is that Cadillac  split the this  tier of Luxury Sedans.. the segment into two.
