Now that former model president Johan de Nysschen has left the job of operating Cadillac to a Canuck, it might be good to see the model take a web page from Lincoln and revamp its naming technique. What you see above is purported to be the upcoming Cadillac
CT6 XT6, a full-size unibody crossover that’s on monitor to plug a serious gap in the model’s lineup.
Slotted above the well-liked XT5 midsize crossover and under the prime-rung Escalade, the XT6 (because it’s tentatively named) guarantees three roomy rows of lux-cellular motoring. This vehicle, together with the compact XT4 launching later this yr, was all a part of de Nysschen plan to deliver residence the bacon in the home market.
The mannequin pictured right here turns into extra Cadillac-esque because it turns its tail in the direction of the digital camera. An extended-wheelbase model of the GM C1 “Chi” platform sits beneath — an structure it shares with the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave. The XT5, in addition to the GMC Acadia, journey atop a regular-size model.
The camouflage is heavy with this one, so it’s arduous to discern the mannequin-particular styling beneath. We’ll probably see a robust resemblance to the smaller XT5, with diagonal slashes virtually a certainty.
As each the Traverse and Enclave carry a 9-velocity automated and three.6-liter V6, it will be anticipated to discover this combo in the XT6. Nevertheless, with status comes the want for extra energy. Cadillac can’t subject a big utility with out providing consumers the probability to step up to a extra prestigious powerplant … can it? An appropriate choice doesn’t spring to thoughts.
Perhaps Cadillac will therapeutic massage the three.6 to give it the slightest statistical edge over its GM stablemates. Then once more, the XT4 makes do with a turbo 2.zero-liter making 237 hp — lower than that of the 2.zero present in the Traverse RS, and nonetheless much less highly effective than the uplevel Chevy Equinox.
It’s anticipated we’ll see the XT6 shed its protecting coverings at this fall’s L.A. Auto Present, with an on-sale date someday in the spring of 2019.
