Overview

The Cadillac XT6 is a seven-seat luxury mid-size crossover SUV manufactured by General Motors. The vehicle was introduced on January 12, 2019 at the North American International Auto Show. The vehicle went on sale in June 2019 as a 2020 model, with early orders commencing prior to the launch. The XT6 (short for Crossover Touring 6) is Cadillac's third crossover SUV, and the largest in the XT series, slotted between the XT5 and the standard full size SUV Escalade. The XT6 is produced at GM's Spring Hill, Tennessee plant, while the Chinese-market XT6 is scheduled to be manufactured in Shanghai by SAIC-GM. The XT6 will also be sold in Russia during the fourth quarter of 2019. While it serves as the luxury counterpart to the full-size Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave in the crossover SUV segment, the XT6 shares its wheelbase with the mid-size GMC Acadia, Cadillac XT5, and Chevrolet Blazer. Cadillac describes the XT6 as a "mid-size plus" vehicle as they see the XT5 as their primary mid-size CUV. The seating configurations was intended to feature 6 seats, as Cadillac had announced that a possible full-size larger crossover SUV could be in the works, but instead made the XT6 a standard seven-seat vehicle, with the six-seat configuration an optional feature. The XT6 comes with a 3.6L V6 LGX engine, making 310 hp (231 kW) mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission with next-generation Electronic Precision Shift. A choice of AWD and FWD are offered. A 2.0L I4 gasoline turbo engine will be offered in the Chinese version, producing 237 hp (177 kW) and 258 lb ft (350 Nm) torque. Trim levels on the XT6 include "Premium Luxury", and "Sport". The XT6 received mixed reviews, with XT6's styling and features being particularly criticized as reviewers believed both pale in comparison to the concurrently launched Lincoln Aviator. Reviewers also criticized the lack of an optional hybrid powertrain, which is available on a number of the XT6's competitors.
