XT6 advances Cadillac’s contemporary interior aesthetic, with elegant, wide surface lines and simple interfaces. It’s an expression that focuses attention on the quality and authenticity of materials and impeccable craftsmanship. Distinctive trim and interior colors delineate the Premium Luxury and Sport models. Premium Luxury models are trimmed with exotic wood decor, while the Sport features performance-inspired carbon fiber trim.
Available comfort features help ensure all passengers have a luxurious experience in every seating row, including Cadillac’s first Bose® Performance Series sound system with 14 custom-tuned speakers delivering immersive, powerful audio throughout XT6’s cabin. Additional available features include semi-aniline premium leather-appointed seating; Cadillac’s in-vehicle air ionizer; automatic heated/ventilated front seats and heated second-row rear outboard seats, and a standard automatic heated steering wheel.
Cadillac is introducing the 2019 Sport Edition, a bold new look for those who aren’t afraid of the dark. This new black-accented version is the first special edition available for the current generation of the sales- and segment-leading, award-winning SUV. Offered on Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum models, the new Sport Edition is distinguished by gloss black exterior trim, including the front grilles, window moldings, body side moldings and more, as well as a unique Midnight Silver finish on the standard 22-inch wheels. “Two decades after its introduction, the Escalade remains the segment’s benchmark and sales leader,” said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. “The Sport Edition extends that momentum in response to customer and dealer demand for a dark and aggressive look.”
Escalade has led the full-size luxury SUV segment in sales for 15 of its 20 years on the road, driven by a powerful blend of sophisticated style, uncompromising capability, innovative technology and exceptional craftsmanship. Escalade’s list of awards keeps growing. In fact, J.D. Power named the Escalade as having the “Best Initial Quality and Resale Value among Large Premium SUVs,” and Consumer Guide® Automotive named it a Best Buy Award winner for five consecutive years. A powerful 6.2L V-8 engine rated at an SAE-certified 420 hp (313 kW) drives all models. Each model is available in 2WD and 4WD configurations and can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds.
Cadillac’s first-ever XT4 leverages the brand’s legacy of technology leadership to reward drivers and passengers with a responsive and refined driving experience. “The new Cadillac XT4 brings a new vitality to Cadillac, in one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments,” said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. “It pairs the agility of our award-winning sports sedans with a youthful SUV character.”
A new turbocharged propulsion system and an available Active Sport Suspension with Continuous Damping Control and precise, electronically calibrated steering, plus an available twin-clutch AWD system coalesce in the XT4 to offer a dynamic blend of performance and comfort. “The propulsion elements, chassis system and extensive tuning work in harmony to make the XT4 a joy to drive,” said Todd Pawlik, chief engineer. “It offers all the versatility you want in an SUV, while answering the driver’s inputs with both immediacy and comfort.”
