Test drove a ‘17 CPO CT6 PHEV in Dark Amethyst. Black leather. O...M...G...!!! What a gorgeous car! Fully loaded.

Lots of new bells inside CUE.

Dealer just got it yesterday. After it is certified, I’m taking it for a full day workout to make sure it fits my family’s needs. (ELR does not any more.)

I’ll keep y’all posted.

Sweet. I really want to like the ct6. It just feels huge. Like an estate car. The price follows that too. It has a ton of toys. But it's take it or leave it. They only have a single build with hybrid. I really don't like sunroofs in Fl. Especially pano sunroofs.

The rear seat entertainment and the large cabin are nice. I'd rock one at $30k. Not $80k, or $50k.

Not to be too nosy but how much did it set you back?

Dealer price is listed at $45998. A little high, but, it's only got 13k miles on it and it is pristine. The headphones for the rear infotainment are still in the OEM plastic. Never been used.

Talked to the sales guy yesterday and it needs some work on the night vision to pass their CPO spec. Probably be another week, but, I'm in no hurry.

If they do a swap deal that meets my budget, I'll pull the trigger.

I drove it briefly. It does fire up the ICE differently than ELR if you call for full throttle. Which is a good thing since I usually put ELR in hold if I'm driving 80mph or more. There was only 6mi showing on the GOM.

0-60 is probably faster, but, off the stop signs it seemed a little sluggish.

It's not that big. Not as big as a Chrysler 300 and much narrower. Driving dynamics are firm for a Cadillac. It's very flat in corners and feels much smaller than it is. It's used, so price is not an issue.

I wish the hybrid had some of the better bells and whistles like Super Cruise and AWD and 4-wheel steering and 34-speaker Bose instead of 10-speaker. The Bose is pretty good though. At least as good as ELR. It has all the standard safety features though.

The sunroofs (two of them) have power covers that make it look like a normal headliner. The front one goes all the way over the rear one for open-air feel, plus, it has the normal tilt up in back for ventilation. I like them.

I did the deal!

Had the car for my normal commute and grocery hauling. Some notes:

- Trunk space is better than some have opined.
- Ride is much more smooth and refined vs ELR.
- Was in FMM during test drives. It is running the ICE much less since the tank is full now.
- I didn’t think the rear entertainment system was important. Boy was I wrong. The kids love it!
- The dual moon/sun roofs are awesome!
- Seats have less adjustments than ELR. Better comfort though. Rear seats are heated. Fronts are heated and power ventilated. Rears are limo-like. All the sun shades make the back seat the place to be.
- ACC is better. Less like a teen driver. The ‘near’ gap setting is much tighter. A lot less people diving into the gap.
- Controls are only slightly different vs ELR. CUE is way faster and the screen is bigger. Apple CarPlay is standard on this trim.
- Has 4GLTE WiFi. Don’t know if I need it yet.
- 10- speaker Bose is very good. No complaints. Similar to ELR.

More later.

Good for you.

Wish they’d build something here like this for sale. I would be interested. Love the volt but it is small.

I believe this color is exclusive to the PHEV (2.0e) CT6. The interior is black which is not my preference, but, this is a used car. Not a lot of choice: especially on something this rare.

A 4 door with a hatchback is small?

Why can't you buy a ct6 PHEV? They are sold everywhere. there's 15 on cargurus with several under $40k now with < 5000 miles.

Sorry, won’t buy a Chinese made car (or a Tesla for a variety of reasons). Don’t get me wrong. Love the Volt for 1-2 persons — in fact we have two. With a family of four though would love a larger US made PHEV.

Am I the only one reading this thread that was completely unaware of the CT6 PHEV? Other than then and ELR, are there any other PHEV's in GM's stable? I didn't see it specifically stated, is the CT6PHEV considered to be Voltec?

Yes and that is what I want — until more charging infrastructure is built out— a larger US made Voltec. I think for now the Volt and CT6 are it. The Honda Clarity also almost fits the category as does the Chrysler Pacifica plug in, but I would like a larger US made GM Voltec.

It is basically a US-made car. Just assembled in China. I see why GM did that since the bulk of the market is China.

I haven’t had any problems with other products assembled in China. Just with knockoffs made there like power window parts.

I got a 100k mile warranty, so, no worries.
