From what we know so far is that the Cadillac carmaker is working on the all-new three-row crossover SUV. The XT5 model is one of the best-sellers and it belongs to a mid-size SUV class. After that, there is a full-size Escalade SUV, so the newest X6 will stand somewhere between these two models. Therefore, although it is still unsure how it is going to be named officially, next year, sometime in spring, we can expect the brand-new 2019 Cadillac XT6.
The upcoming Cadillac XT6 will share the same underpinnings with the smaller XT5. It is the same platform which is used in the current Chevy Traverse and the Buick Enclave. Unfortunately, there isn’t any official information or photos as well, but we can guess that visually, the new XT6 will share similar design cues with the XT5 and some recognizable brand’s styling tweaks such as the design of the grille and headlamps. Inside the cabin, like we have previously mentioned, it is going to be very spacious with three rows of seats, so it could be a great choice for large families. Of course, the comfort and the quality will be on the high level as expected from this manufacturer. As well, when we add the top-notch infotainment and safety systems, the XT6 will truly be worth to consider.
When it comes to the engine, there isn’t any official data, but based on the speculations, we might see the same engine which is used in the Cadillac XT5. The new Cadillac will find toughest rivals in the Audi Q7, Volvo XC90, and Land Rover Discovery.
What engine might power the new 2019 Cadillac XT6?
Although the upcoming 2019 Cadillac XT6 is still under the development, the automaker hasn’t revealed any official details about the engine which might power it. However, we assume that it could get the same unit which powers the XT5 model. It is a 3.6-liter V-6 engine which in the XT5 is able to generate 310 horses and the torque of 271 lb-ft. This engine works with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The power is sent to either front or all wheels.
Design of exterior and interior
The 2019 Cadillac XT6 will ride on the same platform which also underpins the newest Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse. It is the C1XX architecture also used in the XT5. As for the exterior design, there aren’t any official images but the XT6 should definitively resemble the smaller XT5. As well, we can expect the brand’s well-known design of the grille and headlamps too.
The cabin of the 2019 Cadillac XT6 will feature a three-row seating configuration and will be able to welcome up to seven passengers. We can expect good comfort and premium materials in its design, so as the advanced tech equipment. For now, this all we can say about its interior since there isn’t any more details and info.
Release date and price
The 2019 Cadillac XT6 should appear next year, most likely in the spring. The price is not yet known to the public.
