Cadillac has confirmed that the next XT6 Edition will release soon in early 2020. The next 2020 XT6 will bring a lot of brand new stuff, in the cabin area there will have more control tools for the driver, and also Cadillac will give a new touch for the engine. So below are the full preview of the 2020 Cadillac XT6.
Cadillac will offer the XT6 in two primary trim levels: Premium Luxury and Sport. They share the same engine and transmission, although the Premium Luxury model is available with front-wheel drive or a regular on-demand all-wheel-drive system that can mechanically decouple the rear wheels from the driveline to save fuel. The Sport comes standard with all-wheel drive and adds the same torque-vectoring rear axle offered in the GMC Acadia. Cadillac says the extra yaw control the rear drive unit affords better lives up to the Sport mantle than the non-torque-vectoring rear end, not to mention the Sport model’s quicker-ratio steering.
The 2020 XT6 is handsome yet somewhat plain. Its styling pushes no new boundaries for Cadillac. The interior looks like a scaled-up version of the compact XT4’s—itself notable only for seeming stripped down and basic compared to the mediocre-quality yet bombastically overwrought innards found in the rest of Cadillac’s products. Given more real estate to occupy in the larger XT6, the cheaply detailed, minimalist look doesn’t improve.
On the flip side, the XT6’s inoffensive, rectilinear styling is probably a net plus to most luxury consumers, and we really like the way the crossover sits on its wheels. The designers are not hyperbolic in the least when they croon over the XT6’s wide-track look. Best of all, although assembled from blasé materials, the Cadillac’s interior is cleverly packaged to afford a generous room in the second- and third-row seats—the entire point of a vehicle such as this. The way-way back third row, in particular, is a triumph. This average-height author fit easily back there, with plenty of headroom and knee room; the seat cushion is slightly too low, but not nearly as floorboard as the vast majority of the kid-only third-row seats in the XT6’s competitive segment.
Cabin & Tech
Standard equipment includes two USB ports for each row of seating, power releases for folding the second- and third-row seatbacks (with controls in the trunk and in the passenger-side rear door area), and a hands-free power-opening liftgate. Fold the second- and third-row seats flat, and they create a consistent load floor from the rear bumper to the front seats and a useful 79 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold only the third row, and cargo space shrinks to 43 cubic feet; leave all the rear seatbacks up, and there are a mere 13 cubic feet of storage space left over. That volume sounds small—and it is—but it’s the same as the Acadia and just 2 cubes shy of the vastly larger Cadillac Escalade’s figure—and it’s accessible at a much lower height.

How Much To Get one?
The 2020 XT6 will be priced between the XT5 and the damn near $100,000 Escalade, a $50,000 chasm that we hope the XT6 falls near the bottom of. Based on the two-sizes-down XT4’s ambitious pricing, which peaks dangerously close to $60,000(!), and the XT5’s pricing, which tops $70,000, the outlook for the XT6’s making up for its shortcomings with value isn’t promising.
