Cadillac may be a byword for luxury, but the company has lacked a large sedan in recent years. At the New York auto show, it filled that gap with the all-new CT6, a high-tech luxury ride.

The CT6 shows muted styling from the Cadillac's earlier, bolder Art and Science design language. The CT6 takes cues from the more recent ATS model.

The CT6 shows simplified styling up front, with only three bars in the grille and no chrome trim for the headlight casings.

Cadillac will offer three engines for the CT6. The top option, shown here, is a 3-liter V-6 with twin turbochargers, making 400 horsepower.

An adaptive suspension using electro-magnetic dampers lets the driver change the ride quality from comfort to stiff.

A four-wheel-steering system angles the rear wheels based on steering input, improving the CT6's turning radius.

A wing window at the rear of the cabin hints at the large seating area inside, with plenty of room for back seat passengers.

Satin finish wood trim is a nice touch in this example. Cadillac moved its seat controls to the door, similar to Mercedes-Benz, making for each access.

Cadillac loads the steering wheel with buttons for driver assistance and cabin tech features. The instrument cluster uses an LCD panel.
