Looking to enter the three-row cross-game with something more agile than the full-sized Escalade, Cadillac has launched the 2019 Cadillac XT6. Based on the same bases as the GMC Acadia and the smaller Cadillac XT5, the medium sized XT6 is spacious and familiar. It features many of Cadillac’s unique styling features, which include a Cadillac-scale-inspired front side, along with luxury details and different lighting elements.
Inside, the Cadillac offers seven-and eight-seat designs, either in the second row, in a three-seat bench or in captain’s chairs; All XT6 come with a third row with space for three runners. The only drawback is that the interior ornaments of the XT6 not impress when compared with competitors such as the Audi Q7 or the BMW X5, the three-row SUV with which the XT6 tries to fight in a very disputed segment. All XT6 models come with infotainment touchscreen, Apple display, Android Auto, Wi-Fi on board and wireless smartphone charging. A large number of driver assistance features will be available: Automated emergency braking, lane maintenance assistance and blind spot monitoring are standard, while the most advanced features such as cruise control Adaptive and night vision will be optional. The three-row crossover Caddy will be released later in 2019 as Model 2020 with an initial price of $53.690.
The 2019 Cadillac XT6 shares its powertrain with the largest crosses of General Motors, the Buick enclave and the Chevrolet Traverse: a V-6 3.6 liters of 310 hp, front or total traction, and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The two versions, Premium Luxury and Sport, make up the XT6 line. The first is more about comfort and the last one receives extras that improve performance, such as the rear axle with torsion vector and the adjusted direction. A Platinum package is available in both and loads the XT6 with all the treats. No matter the fit, the XT6 certainly looks handsome; 20-inch wheels are standard and 21-inch rims are optional in the Sport model.
