The XT6 is the possible name of an upcoming, unconfirmed full-size luxury crossover utility vehicle (CUV) from Cadillac.
Following is speculative and unconfirmed information about the Cadillac XT6. This page is a continuous work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis as we await official details from General Motors and Cadillac.
If you notice any inaccuracies about the information provided, please let us know here.
Currently, it’s unclear the direction in which Cadillac will take the XT6. However, based on Cadillac’s new CT/XT vehicle naming convention, we can deduce that it will be:
- A crossover utility vehicle (CUV)
- Full-size, likely mechanically related to the Cadillac CT6
As such, our best guess at this point is that the Cadillac XT6 will be a full-size crossover with three rows of seating for five, six, or seven passengers, depending on the configuration of the interior.
The XT7 name is the result of a new naming scheme that names:
- All sedans, coupes, and wagons as CT followed by a number designating its order in the lineup
- All crossovers and SUVs as XT followed by a number designating its order in the lineup
General Motors filed a trademark application for the XT6 name with the Untied States Patent and Trademark Office on November 7th, 2014.
Cadillac has yet to announce or confirm an XT4. Even so, it’s possible that vehicle will come to market in the vicinity of calendar year 2018.
We expect the Cadillac XT6 to ride on GM’s Omega platform.
We expect the Cadillac XT6 to be powered by turbo-charged six-and eight-cylinder engines mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
If the XT6 winds up being based on the Omega architecture like we expect, then standard models will be rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive will be an option.
We expect the Cadillac XT6 to be available as a four-door, full-size crossover utility vehicle (CUV).[/tab]
We expect the Cadillac XT6 to offer three rows of seating for six, seven, or eight passengers, depending on the configuration of the interior.
Assuming that the Cadillac XT6 will be a full-size four-door crossover, it will compete with:
- Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class (previously GL-Class)
- BMW X7 (upcoming, not yet announced)
- Audi Q9 (upcoming, not yet announced)
