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.
AboutÂ CadillacÂ XT6
The Cadillac XT6 isÂ aÂ three-row premium luxury crossover.Â The modelÂ represents a new addition to the Cadillac model range as part of the brand'sÂ crossover expansion strategy. ItÂ slotsÂ above theÂ the compactÂ Cadillac XT4Â and midsizeÂ Cadillac XT5Â in theÂ Cadillac crossover SUV lineup. Its sizeÂ classification can be best described as "midsize plus", as it is bigger than midsize but notÂ big enough to be classified asÂ full-size.
The XT6 was announced at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in January 2019 andÂ goes on sale inÂ the spring of the 2019 calendar year as a 2020 model. It is basedÂ on the regular-length variant of theÂ GM C1 platformÂ shared with the XT5, but with more rear overhang than the XT5. That extended rear overhang enables it toÂ accommodate a third row. The rest of the vehicle is very similar to the XT5, including itsÂ engine, transmission, and cockpit.
TheÂ XT5Â is produced atÂ the following GM plants globally:
- GM Spring Hill factoryÂ in Tennessee or GM Lansing DeltaÂ plant operated byÂ GM USAÂ supplying North American markets
- Cadillac China Jinqiao factoryÂ operated byÂ Shanghai-GMÂ supplying the Chinese market
