Finally, things are starting to change for Cadillac. GM said that the brand will charge into the electric future. Cadillac has been an island for the automaker, needing a new direction. Cadillac will be GM’s lead electric vehicle (EV) brand with an all-new battery electric vehicle architecture. The EV platform will offer front-wheel, rear-wheel and all-wheel options. No official news on what model will be the first Cadillac EV.
The XT6 was Cadillac’s big debut at the Detroit Auto Show. It joins the Cadillac crossover lineup with the XT4 and XT5. The brand is offering more options in this category after suffering significant sale losses because of hesitation to move on from the sedan models. Consumers are no longer in the market for sedans, and several automakers are making big transitions to limit the number of production options. The XT6 is 198.8 inches long, comparable to the Lexus RX350L, and other large three-row crossovers. It has a 3.6-liter, V6 engine with 310 horsepower. The Cadillac XT6 is offering both front- and all-wheel drive options. It is built on the same platform as the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave, with added luxury and safety technology included. Options include adaptive cruise control, automatic parking assist, and night vision. No official pricing has been announced.
