I have had a new CT6 on order for some time.  I just received notice it will be built on May 9.  One of the largest Cadillac dealers in S. Florida, Auto Nation of West Palm Beach received its first unit over the weekend.  The salesmen told me it is the same car sent to every eligible  dealer.  It is a basic model, around $57,000.  Dark grey metallic, black charcoal grey interior.  Even though I told the salesperson I had one ordered up North, he gave me a wonderful product presentation and insisted I drive the car.  Outside of a new Rolls-Royce Phantom that a friend of mine had, I don't think I have ever driven a nicer car.  In my opinion, the color, and trim were ugly, but I guess I don't know what young people want.  I am very much anticipating the arrival of my new Platinum version, in the Opalescent white color.

Tony, your CT6 Platinum sounds like a beauty! Here is another item I came across on the web that shows a CT6 Platinum being delivered in Passion Red Tintcoat and Very Light Cashmere Leather, and it looks great--just too bad they do not show enough of the car:

By the looks of the wheels and interior, I don't think it is Platinum model.  That maroon is an optional color though.

Sorry, I thought it was the Platinum version since it appears to have the Very Light Cashmere color of leather? I thought that was only available with the Platinum trim? To me, it looks very nice, and probably better in-person.

The Cadillac website lists inventories of in stock and incoming Cadillac models.  I don't know how up to date it is but in your region, for example, they show two CT6s for AutoNation Cadillac West Palm Beach.  A Moonstone one (MSRP $57,935), presumably the one you drove, and a Crystal White one (MSRP $64,485).    Coral Cadillac shows three including a Platinum model in Red Passion with near $89K sticker.

Hi Tony,
Congrats on the CT6...I've been eyeballing it too, and looking forward to seeing one in the flesh.  Looks very nice.

Keep us posted on how you like it.
