For better traction, the Ghibli has larger standard tires than the CT6 (F:245/45R19 & R:275/40R19 vs. 235/50R18).

The Ghibli’s standard 245/45R19 front and 275/40R19 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 45 series front and 40 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the CT6’s standard 50 series tires. The Ghibli’s optional 245/35R21 front and 285/30R21 rear tires have a lower 35 series front and 30 series rear profile than the CT6’s optional 40 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Ghibli has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the CT6. The Ghibli’s optional 21-inch wheels are larger than the 20-inch wheels optional on the CT6.

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Ghibli is 1 inch wider in the front and 1.1 inches wider in the rear than on the CT6.

The Ghibli S Q4 handles at .91 G’s, while the CT6 pulls only .81 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The Ghibli S Q4 executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.2 seconds quicker than the CT6 (25.5 seconds @ .8 average G’s vs. 26.7 seconds @ .66 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the Ghibli’s turning circle is 1.6 feet tighter than the CT6’s (38.4 feet vs. 40 feet).

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the Ghibli to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The CT6 doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Ghibli offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The CT6 doesn’t offer headlight washers.

The CT6 Premium Luxury/Platinum/Sport’s cornering lamps activate a lamp on the front corner when the turn signal is activated. The Ghibli’s optional adaptive cornering lights turn the actual headlight unit up to several degrees, depending on steering wheel angle and vehicle speed. This lights a significant distance into corners at any speed.
