Cadillac don’t have to hide it any more. At least, they are not trying – the 2020 Cadillac XT6 is coming. If they ever try to deny it, there are a lot of spy shots confirming the arrival. Well, it was a logical move after the success of XT5. The flagship model, alongside Escalade, made a strong impact in last few years. The company decided to boost its presence in the SUV class, and they made it with XT5. Now, the lineup is expanding, with new models coming in next couple of years.
The 2020 Cadillac XT6 will be larger than its sibling. The spot under the XT5 is reserved for XT4. But, soon we will see more from Cadillac. Hybrid models, coupe SUV, performance-oriented crossovers… This class is the most popular in the automotive industry. So, not having the model in each segment would be loss for every carmaker. That is why Cadillac is pushing so strong to complete its XT lineup.
2020 Cadillac XT6 Release Date
With the vehicle being spotted more occasionally, we believe the release date of 2020 Cadillac XT6 is approaching very fast. The first appearance the SUV could have early next year. However, we will have to wait to see the complete image with all specs. Later in 2019 fans can expect the full review with all official details. For now, we are still relying on rumors and spy photos.
Again, we can compare 2020 Cadillac XT6 only with its existing sibling. Bigger, newer crossover will be more expensive than Cadillac XT5, which starts from $41,000. Of course, in two years, with the facelift scheduled for 2019, the flagship model will come with a new price, higher than now. The Cadillac XT6 2020 is going to flirt with $50,000 price sticker.
Navigation, bigger wheels, premium package, and other upgrades will raise the cost above $80,000. Also, if 2020 Cadillac XT6 gets a hybrid engine, that will be another factor to boost the cost of the SUV.
2020 Cadillac XT6 Design
The 2020 Cadillac XT6 is definitely under the camo of spied vehicle. For some while, many enthusiasts believed this is facelifted XT5. The mid-size premium crossover will be different from next season. But, spy shots are showing a bigger SUV. Longer and wider, it takes a new name and position above the existing crossover.
As both luxury SUVs in Cadillac lineup, the XT6 is going to get a premium treatment. Everything is elegant and luxurious. Seats and steering wheel are wrapped in leather. Front buckets will get heating. Ventilated seats are available on higher trims. Infotainment system, CUE, is heading into the new generation. It will be simpler to use. At the same time, the Cadillac User Experience is getting new features and services.
2020 Cadillac XT6 Engine and Specs
The 2020 Cadillac XT6 is not going to use the same powertrain as its bigger or smaller sibling. Engineers are developing the new mill that will settle the SUV between these two. Also, the new engine could be used by future models, especially larger ones.
Spy photos are not unveiling details about the powertrain. However, we can confirm that conventional unit is under the hood. There are gossips telling that Cadillac is creating a hybrid drivertrain. Well, the plug-in version would need special openings for charging. These are not visible on spy photos, so the PHEV is not being tested yet.
On the other hand, mild-hybrid could pair small electric motor with the existing drivetrain from XT5. This would create an interesting system which can boost the mileage of the mid-size crossover and add more versatility to the lineup. Outputs will be similar to XT5.
