The new segment of coupe-like crossover is getting more and more popular and even Cadillac is about to enter this game with the all-new 2019 Cadillac XT7. The famous luxury carmaker recently started with the new naming policy. Sedans and other passengers cars feature CT, while crossover comes with an XT lettering. We have already a new XT5 model, which is a mid-size crossover. This time, we will see something more stylish but less practical. It will be the first crossover from Cadillac that features sloping roof design and it will be very big if we can rely on insider’s information.
2019 Cadillac XT7 Design
When it comes to 2019 Cadillac XT7 specs, we have no doubt that the new crossover will rely on the company’s familiar Omega platform. This architecture will be used for pretty much all Cadillac models, no matter the vehicle type. It is highly modular and can be used for vehicles of different sizes as well. This one is about to be a full-size crossover, according to the latest reports. It will feature a similar size to the Escalade, but with a completely different design approach. Instead of a heavy and rugged body-on-frame SUV design, it will be a modern crossover, which promises much better driving dynamics.
2019 Cadillac XT7 Styling
We are still waiting to see some 2019 Cadillac XT7 photos to leak. At the moment, we can only speculate. According to the latest reports, as well as to our reliable insider, this will be a coupe-like crossover. Expect that sloping roof design, which characterized several models from other manufacturers on the market. However, other models usually belong to the segment of mid-size cars. This will be the first time to see a coupe-like full-size crossover and rivals are yet to come. Those should be models like BMW X8, Mercedes-Benz GLS Coupe etc. The front, on the other side, should look pretty familiar. It will feature the brand’s newest design language, the same that characterizes new XT5. These two models should share lots of styling solutions, despite the new 2019 Cadillac XT7 will be bigger.
How many seats will 2019 Cadillac XT7 feature?
This is one of the mysteries about the 2019 Cadillac XT7. Although three rows of seating became pretty much a standard even for mid-size SUVs, coupe-like derivates stuck to two rows so far. However, this will be a full-size vehicle, so three rows could come as a part of standard equipment. In that case, you should expect a pretty tight rear bench and not so generous cargo space.
2019 Cadillac XT7 Engines
When it comes to powertrain, we expect to see familiar units that power most of Cadillac’s models. Base models will most likely feature a familiar 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. This efficient engine delivers amazing 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Higher-grade models will probably use a bigger 4.2-liter V8 twin-turbo engine, which comes in a few output variants. In this case, expect around 500 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque.
When will 2019 Cadillac XT7 arrive?
At the moment, we are still waiting for the official confirmation of this model. Still, many reliable sources claim that the all-new coupe-like crossover will come very soon, already in the next year.
