Which flagship-caliber luxury car would YOU rather park in your garage, the totally redesigned Lexus LS 500 or Cadillac’s ever-capable CT6?

Either of these sizable sedans will perform admirably for years to come, offering comfort, style, spaciousness and tons of technology.

The all-new LS 500 features a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that’s rated at a muscular 416 horsepower and 442 foot-pounds of torque. Drivetrain forces are routed to either the rear or all four wheels through a cutting-edge 10-speed automatic transmission.

Parrying the Lexus’ powertrain blow, Cadillac engineers also equipped the CT6 with a force-fed bent-six. With 3.0-liters of displacement and twin turbochargers, their top offering yields an impressive 404 horses and 400 foot-pounds of torque. All-wheel drive is included with this engine, while an eight-ratio Hydra-Matic gearbox is standard across the board.

Providing a rigid and refined foundation, the LS 500 is built on the Lexus brand’s new Global Architecture for Luxury vehicles, GA-L for short. This provides a vehicle that’s longer, lower, wider and better to drive.

Not to be outdone, the CT6’s structure is made of mixed materials including lots of aluminum for a lighter curb with no sacrifice in strength.

Which of these large-and-lovely sedans would YOU rather own? The Cadillac is available right now and the Lexus should go on sale very soon. Compare them right here and make sure to vote in the poll down below!

    One look at that cheap, ugly, disjointed GM interior and it's an easy choice. Lexus. Though the Lexus is sort of a weirdo inside and out, it's easily better quality and refinement. Look at the Cadillac's steering wheel. Right out of a Chevy. GM = Garbage Motors. M
