The all-new Cadillac XT6 is continuing to its global reveal cadence in the brand’s primary global markets. Now, one month after the new crossover made its global debut at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and after its coincidental reveal in China, the 2020 Cadillac XT6 is being presented for the first time in Canada at the 2019 Canadian International Auto Show.
The largest automotive event in Canada opened its doors to the public this Friday, February 15th at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, in the city of Toronto. Those interested in checking out Cadillac’s new three-row crossover SUV before its arrival at dealers will have until February 24th to attend the auto show.
“The first-ever Cadillac XT6 drives into a fast-growing segment with class-leading spaciousness, safety and convenience,” said James Nava, national marketing manager, Cadillac Canada. “The XT6 is an elegant and spacious three-row luxury crossover positioned between XT5 and Escalade and offers room for new possibilities.”
Created for families in mind, the new Cadillac XT6 offers a luxurious and connected cabin to make the most of their time on the road for either six or seven passengers, depending on seating configuration. In addition, Cadillac promises responsive handling and a high level of safety for occupants thanks to a slew of standard and available accident prevention technologies.
Cadillac says that pricing information will be announced at a date closer to the model’s launch.
About Cadillac XT6
The Cadillac XT6 is a three-row premium luxury crossover. The model represents a new addition to the Cadillac model range as part of the brand's crossover expansion strategy. It slots above the the compact Cadillac XT4 and midsize Cadillac XT5 in the Cadillac crossover SUV lineup. Its size classification can be best described as "midsize plus", as it is bigger than midsize but not big enough to be classified as full-size.
The XT6 was announced at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in January 2019 and goes on sale in the spring of the 2019 calendar year as a 2020 model. It is based on the regular-length variant of the GM C1 platform shared with the XT5, but with more rear overhang than the XT5. That extended rear overhang enables it to accommodate a third row. The rest of the vehicle is very similar to the XT5, including its engine, transmission, and cockpit.
The XT5 is produced at the following GM plants globally:
- GM Spring Hill factory in Tennessee or GM Lansing Delta plant operated by GM USA supplying North American markets
- Cadillac China Jinqiao factory operated by Shanghai-GM supplying the Chinese market
