GM’s luxury brand continues with its lineup expansion and the newest vehicle to come will be called the 2019 Cadillac XT6. According to the latest reports, this crossover will have its premiere already in January, at the Detroit Auto Show. Experts have big expectations from a model that is about to walk on a fine line between mid- and full-size crossover. Besides plenty of interior space, the new model will have to offer an attractive look, based on the brand’s newest design language, as well as on lots of latest tech features and powerful engines. Once we see it on a premiere, sales should start a few months later.
2019 Cadillac XT6 Design
The 2019 Cadillac XT6 will be an all-new model. By looking at the brand’s new designation, you can easily guess it will be slotted above the mid-size XT5. Still, it definitely won’t be as big as models like Mercedes-Benz GLS. Expect proportions similar to Chevy Traverse, which means a mid-size SUV with an extended wheelbase. Overall length will probably go somewhere around 200 inches. Of course, count on a familiar C1XX platform, with FWD layout. Those would be some of the most basic 2019 Cadillac XT6 specs. In terms of space, we count on the brand’s latest design language, based on the Cadillac Escala concept. Although a sedan, this concept bring styling solutions that will characterize pretty much all upcoming SUVs of the brand. This means a shape that is similar to models like XT4 and XT5, just in a bigger package.
One thing we can definitely count on when it comes to the 2019 Cadillac XT6 interior is plenty of space. As we already mentioned, the new model will ride on the GM’s familiar C1 platform. More precisely, it will ride on the extended version of this architecture, the same that characterize models like Chevy Traverse and Buick Enclave. In practice, this means a lot of space. We can count on three spacious rows of seating. Even the last row should feature enough space to accommodate adult passengers.
When it comes to a max seating capacity, it will go up to 8 people. Higher trim could reduce it to 7, due to captain’s chairs in the second row. Besides plenty of space and practicality, we expect to see a pretty upscale cabin, full of top-notch quality materials. This especially refers to the dashboard, which will also come with a long list of latest tech features. Among them, you can expect to see Super Cruise as well.
What is Cadillac Super Cruise?
This feature is already available in some Cadillac models. It is one of the most advanced semi-autonomous driving systems, which allows completely hands-free operation on freeways, at all speeds.
2019 Cadillac XT6 Engines
Two engines should be available in the 2019 Cadillac XT6 SUV. Base models should come with a familiar 3.6-liter V6 unit, which is good for about 310 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Still, the real deal will be the new-generation twin-turbo V6, which already powers several models under Cadillac’s badge. It features a displacement of 3.0 liters and a max power that goes around 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Both engines will come paired with a new 9-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Cadillac XT6 Release Date
When it comes to the 2019 Cadillac XT6 release date, latest reports suggest its premiere at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show in January. Sales should start a few months later.
How much is 2019 Cadillac XT6 going to cost?
In terms of 2019 Cadillac XT6 price, it is still early for some more precise figures. At this point, we can make a rough estimation that goes between 45.000 and 50.000 dollars for base models.
