A Review of the Cadillac CT6 Plug-in

In the past, luxury cars like Cadillac were synonymous with poor fuel economy. However, with the advances in technology, they have smaller motors with enough horsepower and still have all of the luxuries you come to expect from a luxury model. You can really have the best of both worlds when you test drive a 2017 Cadillac CT6 plug-in at dealerships like SouthTowne Motors.

Borrowed Volt Technology

The new Cadillac CT6 is a full-size sedan and is a plug-in hybrid. The new model was announced at the Shanghai motor show. The new model will make 335 horsepower and 432 pound-feet of torque while doubling the fuel economy of the conventional engine.

The CT6 features an 18.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack behind the rear seat and in front of the trunk. The battery features 192 pouch cells – the same chemistry you’ll find in the new battery that comes with the Chevrolet Volt. You can charge this battery pack at a 120-volt or a 240-volt outlet.

A new rear-wheel electric variable transmission (EVT) will back up the engine, giving the CT6 fast and smooth takeoffs. The EVT system uses two motors and three planetary gears. The gas engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a turbocharger.

The CT6 features three driving modes: normal, sport and hold. Use normal for every day driving; use sport for more aggressive medal mapping and use hold to reserve battery use.

Air Bag Safety And Children

Air bags are designed to open on impact and to protect the driver and passengers in the case of a crash. Although new cars come standard with airbags because of their proven ability to save lives, their have been some concerns about their safety and effectiveness when it comes to children

Airbags are designed to protect large adults from the force and impact of a crash. As such they open with a large amount force, enough to seriously injure and possibly even kill a small child. In reaction to this discover the National Traffic Safety Administration has worked with car manufactures to set laws and guidelines that are designed to help reduce the number of injuries caused by airbags to children.

One of the biggest adaptations that auto manufactures have made to keep young children from being injured and killed by airbags is to put an on/off switch on airbags. If your car’s airbag has on/off switch it is highly recommend that you turn the airbag off anytime anyone under the age of 13 is sitting in the from seat. It may also be a good idea to turn off the airbag if a small adult is sitting in the front passenger seat.

Another precaution to take is to make sure that the person sitting in the seat with the airbag is sitting upright, in a comfortable position with their feet flat on the floor. It is especially important to make sure to teach your children to do this because when deployed the airbag could hit your child at the wrong angle and cause serious injuries. In rare cases, sitting with their feet on the dashboard where the airbag is located could cause them to deploy without there being an accident.

The best thing to do is to have your child sit in the back seat. Most states now have laws about how old a child must be in order to sit in the front seat. This is because of the damage airbags can have on growing bodies. It is important to follow these laws. Even if your child is old enough by law to sit in the front seat, in may be in their best interest to sit in the back anyway. Many children are smaller than their peers and could still be hurt by an airbag being deployed.

While airbags are important safety features that have saved many lives, they are designed to protect adult male bodies from the impact of a collision. This is why it is important to follow all laws and guidelines when children are riding in the car.
