In case it wasn’t already obvious, the crossover and SUV segment is ridiculously popular these days – so much so, some automakers are making new “coupe” versions of popular D- and E-segment crossovers. The Germans have been doing this for a while now, with just a few examples including the Mercedes-AMG GLC43 Coupe, the BMW X6, and the Audi Q3 Sportback. The thing is, Cadillac doesn’t offer anything in this space. As such, we took it upon ourselves to render up a Cadillac XT6 Coupe.
Before we launch into this thing, it bears mentioning that, as far as we know, Caddy currently has no plans on actually producing a Cadillac XT6 Coupe model. Rather, we made this rendering just to see what such a creation might look like.
With that covered, let’s briefly summarize what a crossover coupe actually is. While the word “coupe” is traditionally applied to cars with two-doors, the word is actually French for “cut” or “chopped off.” The automotive origin or the word dates back to horse-drawn carriages, and is used to reference the “cut” of a sloping roofline.
As such, modern automakers have adopted the term and applied it across a multitude of segments, including crossovers as a means of adding additional sporty flavoring to the segment.
Thus, we applied the same formula to the Cadillac XT6. If such a thing did make it off a Caddy assembly line, it would hypothetically rival the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe and BMW X6 in the luxury E-segment.
Critically, our Cadillac XT6 Coupe takes the same approach as other contemporary crossover coupes by adding a sloping roofline to the same platform as the standard Cadillac XT6. A combo like this would invariably lead to sales volume gains and profit, given crossover coupes are typically priced higher than their standard-roof variants.

It looks like a chubby sedan to me.
Cadillac (Read:GM) won’t build it. As per JDN’s interview in 2019, GM put the hammer down on pet projects. This wouldn’t sell in volume to justify the cost to build it.
Interesting how the Germans can build vehicles for multiple niches yet Cadillac keeps chopping away so that it has a very basic lineup.
To start it would need sportier wheels and tires to give it a better stance also not too much slope in the back and more horsepower I would say at least 380 horses and also stagger the wheels
Nice work, but no matter what the Germans think, a four-door vehicle is not a coupe.
This is what the XT6 should had looked like. I think this looks better and more modern to complete with BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Now do the XT5 lol.
Nice! Caddy needs to catch-up in that segment!
BMW sold 4200 X6s last year and 6800 the year before. There’s no “segment”.
Looks like a FANTASTIC idea to me. I bet it would out sell the X6
That’s funnier than Rodney’s comment.
Creó que se debería hacer es utilizar la plataforma del ct5 y ct4 para hacer SUV tracción trasera y así no cerrar las plantas donde se contribuye estos Sedanes al estilo del primer SRX
Not a fan !!!
Totally useless, and a misuse of the word “coupe” if you ask me, in spite of the word’s origins.
It actually looks better than I would have imagined.
Actually like it from behind. The german variants are very ugly but this is pretty clean and sharp.
