Cadillac CT6 Named to 2018 WardsAuto 10 Best UX List
Each year, WardsAuto analyzes new and redesigned vehicles to determine which ones offer drivers the most intuitive and interactive experience behind the wheel. For 2018, the Cadillac CT6 was among the editors’ favorites. Cadillac’s flagship luxury sedan offers easy-to-use semi-autonomous control through Super Cruise, along with smoothly designed infotainment and display features.
The CT6 features a 10-inch color touch screen that gives drivers easy-to-use control over music, navigation, smartphone features, and Cadillac apps. The top of the screen offers a quick-access menu, and pairing a smartphone is a swift and simple process. Volume is controlled by a smooth-moving horizontal slider underneath the screen.
If drivers would rather not interact with the touch screen, many of the infotainment system’s features can also be accessed through a touchpad on the CT6’s center console. They can also be easily controlled via voice-activated technology.

The CT6’s climate controls are available in two different formats. The touch screen offers bright, easy-to-read buttons to precisely control the heat and air conditioning. Normal buttons below the screen offer quicker, more intuitive access.
One of the CT6’s most exciting features is Super Cruise, which can be controlled from the left side of the steering wheel. This semi-autonomous technology provides hands-free steering and pedal-free control on interstates and other limited-access highway. It works safely and effectively whether the road is open or jammed.
Super Cruise also features a steering column-mounted sensor that tracks eye movement. If the driver has been lulled into no longer paying attention to the road, the system will issue a warning and then shut off.
The instrument panel on the CT6’s dashboard is a 12-inch display that can be easily reconfigured to show a variety of driving information in different ways. The CT6 also offers a convenient Head-Up Display. This display shows up on the windshield, allowing the driver to quickly note the speedometer, tachometer, and other information without taking eyes off the road.
