New seven-seat crossover bridges gap between XT5 and Escalade.
The new Cadillac XT6 crossover has been unveiled ahead of its in-the-flesh debut at the 2019 Detroit motor show.
Design-wise the new seven-seat SUV has front and rear ends largely inspired by the 2016 Escala concept, although it misses out on that vehicle's slinky proportions and silhouette.
Available features include an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, autonomous emergency braking, lane keeping assistance, night vision, wireless phone charging, LED headlights, 21-inch wheels, six USB ports, a head-up display, surround view camera system, adaptive cruise control, and a 14-speaker Bose sound system.
At launch the XT6 will only be available with one engine option, a naturally-aspirated 3.6-litre V6 cranking out 231kW of power and 367Nm of torque.
A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard, while all-wheel drive is available.
While the company has yet to release the XT6's dimensions, they shouldn't too different the Acadia, which is 4917mm long, 1915mm wide, 1745mm tall, and has a 2857mm wheelbase.
This makes the new car half-a-size bigger than the five-seat XT5, which is 4815mm long, but has the same 2857mm wheelbase the Acadia.
The range-topping Escalade is significantly larger, measuring 5144mm long, 2045mm wide, 1890mm tall and riding on a 2946mm wheelbase in short wheelbase form. The ESV variant is a dimension-gobbling 5697mm long.
The Aviator is powered by either a 298kW/542Nm 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6, or a 335kW/815Nm plug-in hybrid drivetrain employing the same V6 motor.
The new Cadillac XT6 goes on sale in the US from the second quarter of 2019.
