Spy Shots Show Cadillac XT6 Interior For The First Time

A few days ago, an exclusive Cadillac Society report stated that the Cadillac XT6 will have a cabin identical to that of the Cadillac XT5. Now, our spy photographer managed to capture the Cadillac XT6 interior with minimal camouflage, thereby confirming what we reported.

The center stack on the Cadillac XT6 begins with two horizontally-placed air vents that, in these photos, are covered by cloth camouflage. The vents are followed by an 8-inch screen running the latest version of the Cadillac User Experience infotainment system.

The touch-based volume control slider that usually resides immediately below the screen is gone from the XT6. We explain why down below. The screen is followed by a row of HVAC controls and then an open, cover-less storage space completes the center stack.

The center console is the only part of the new Cadillac XT6 interior that is different from the XT5: two rotary controls for the infotainment system are positioned immediately aft of the Electronic Precision Shifter. Initially introduced on the all-new 2019 Cadillac XT4 and on the (soon-to-be-discontinued) 2019 CT6 refresh, the smaller control is for adjusting volume (and, hence, the reason for the removal of the volume slider), while the larger control behind it drives the screen.

The introduction of the tactile, rotary controls address the biggest complaint about the CUE infotainment system, which relies on touchscreen and slider inputs. To note, we expect the refreshed 2020 Cadillac XT5 to adopt these rotary infotainment controls.

  2. How disappointing. The XT5 was presented in 2015. And now, after more than 3 years, the Cadillac chiefs come finally along to show a new car, cloned from an outdated sister model.
    Every one talks about digitization. But former so called Standard of the World is ignoring what really makes a luxury car modern and digital.
    Bad bad luck, almost like a stillborn child.

  4. And some notsobright idiot cancels the ct6 which is one of the most comfortable car o have ever owned. GM is again disappointing their customers. Time to switch over to Lincoln

    • The problem with the CT6 is that it isn’t selling well. I think part of the reason is that people are swithing over to crossovers. And GM doesn’t seem to advertise the CT6 that much.

  5. I have a 2014 SRX and the touch screen doesn’t work anymore. I think the modifications
    in the new Cadillacs (such as knobs) are probably an improvement. They may seem old fashioned, but it woks better.

  7. And i think it will be offered with the same boaring interior colors. Epic fail

    • Maybe it will be offered with the same colors. But even if it is, that hasn’t prevented the XT5 from selling extremely well.

    • “What does ‘boring interior colors’ even mean? A car interior needs to be durable, attractive and functional. Who cares how ‘exciting’ the interior colors are?

      • Brian – your comment does not align with reality. You describe what a basic car interior should be like, while today’s car buyers are looking for more then basics… especially in the luxury space.

        I’ll put it this way: if you were running an automaker, your firm would have been relegated into irrelevant oblivion and then bankruptcy decades ago.

  8. Boring, again! Maybe they should concentrate on selling buses, exclusively. It seems they want to sell what no one wants, except the Escalade, maybe.
