There are many official and no-official stories about new Caddy crossover lineup. The XT segment is growing. Based on the XT5, the only existing SUV in this class, we should see soon bigger and smaller models. The favorite to be the first one to appear is 2019 Cadillac XT6. It will take a position in a 3-row mid-size segment. Fans of the Cadillac Escalade don’t need to worry. Caddy will place the new vehicle between this model and XT5.
The brand-new 2019 Cadillac XT6 release date is still unknown. But, the reports are informing of the SUV, which means production and premiere could be near. Fans can listen about the coupe version, and the company still keeps specs safe from the public. However, leaking sources are giving us some signs what to expect, outside and inside the SUV. Interior of the new Cadillac XT6 is not going to be as luxurious as for the Escalade, but occupants won’t lack premium feeling.
New 2019 Cadillac XT6 Engine and Specs
The smaller brother, XT5 is using a 3.6-liter V-6 engine. But, experts believe this mill is not producing enough power. Its outputs of 310 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque need a boost. It can be done by placing the tuned version of the V-6 unit we can find in CT6 sedan. The power heart of this car can deliver 335 horses.
Whatsoever, since both sedan and 2019 Cadillac XT6 are in the same, 6-series, these two vehicles can share a lot in common. The SUV can borrow the more capable unit. A 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine is capable to burst 400 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed auto transmission should send the energy to front wheels by default. Optionally, buyers can pick the AWD version of Cadillac XT6.
It won’t be a surprise if we see 2019 Cadillac XT6 as a plug-in hybrid. Sibling, Caddy CT6 sedan is pairing electric motor with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The similar combination could find the place under the hood of the new SUV. However, we still don’t know if it will be powerful enough for this kind of vehicle. Numbers are saying 335 horses and 430 pound-feet of torque, which would be better than 3.6-liter V-6 can do.

The premium crossover could be one of the surprises for the upcoming season. Among many rumors, we found some stunning info about the coupe version. That will make 2019 Cadillac XT6 a rival to Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class. Furthermore, attractiveness and aggressiveness of this body style would definitely lure more buyers, especially younger customers.
Inside the cabin, the SUV will pick up details and parts from its siblings. However, designers are not going to make the pile of it. Also, the interior of the 2019 Cadillac XT6 will get some unique details and equipment, since there will be more space than in the XT5.
