Cadillac XT6

The Cadillac XT6 is a luxury crossover utility vehicle (CUV) that represents a new model entry.

Overview

  • What: an all-new midsize-plus luxury crossover utility vehicle with three rows of seating that slots above the XT5
  • When: a launch in the spring of 2019 as a 2020 model year vehicle
  • Why: the Cadillac lineup was missing a three-row crossover SUV, a need that the XT6 fills
  • Where: sold in all current markets where Cadillac has a business presence, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, South Korea, the Middle East, Russia, and Europe. The XT6 could be also sold in more countries if the Cadillac brand enters new markets.

Price

Pricing for the Cadillac XT6 has not yet been announced. We expect the midsize plus crossover to start in the $45,000 range.

Release date

The Cadillac XT6 goes on sale in the spring of 2019.

Name

The XT6 name is the result of Cadillac’s new naming scheme, wherein the brand labels cars like sedans, coupes, and wagons with the CT moniker, followed by a number designating its “sequence” in the lineup. Similarly, Cadillac crossovers and SUVS are named XT followed by a number identifying its sequence in the vehicle hierarchy.

The XT6 nameplate indicates that the vehicle in question is a crossover that slots above the XT5 in the lineup.

Platform

The Cadillac XT6 rides on the extended-length version of the C1 platform (pronounced “Chi”). The short-wheelbase version of the same architecture is shared with the Cadillac XT5.

Due to its platform, the XT6 features a transverse powertrain configuration.

Powertrain

The Cadillac XT6 features the 3.6L V-6 LGX with automatic engine stop/start functionality making 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.

Front-wheel-drive is standard, while all-wheel-drive is optional.

Body Styles

The Cadillac XT6 is available as a midsize-plus crossover utility vehicle (CUV).

The XT6 isn’t a midsize CUV but it isn’t a full-size model either. Instead, it straddles both spaces.

Competition

The Cadillac XT6 competes with other midsize plus crossover utility vehicles, including:

  • Volvo XC90
  • Audi Q7
  • Infiniti Q60
  • Lexus RX350L
  • Lincoln Aviator
