The 2020 Cadillac XT6 has been carefully curated to offer a refined ride and comfortable interior that elevate every drive.
“The interior environment is about simplicity, with the execution of premium materials,” said Andrew Smith, executive director, Cadillac Design.
Some of the design details in the XT6 are front and centre, such as the exotic wood decor on the Premium Luxury model and the precision weave in the carbon fibre trim on the XT6 Sport model. Premium French seaming appears throughout the cabin, and perforations in the available ventilated front seats echo the shape of the Cadillac crest.
“The XT6’s thoughtful details reveal themselves the longer you live with the car,” said John Plonka, XT6 chief engineer.
The XT6 Premium Luxury model stands up to tough road conditions with a bright grille finish created with a premium hot foil stamping process. The dimensional, foil-based finish is treated with a protective coating to make it more durable and easier to clean.
Form and function blend in the XT6’s rear spoiler. Its primary role is enhancing aerodynamic efficiency, but it also houses the rear window wiper and washer, as well as the available rearview mirror camera and wash. All are hidden beneath the spoiler’s trailing edge for a cleaner, and an unobstructed rearview.
A hydrophobic coating on the XT6’s rear camera lenses helps resist mud, snow and spotting, a detail drivers will appreciate every time it rains or snows.
The XT6 offers technologies to help support a clear, unobstructed view. The available Surround Vision camera system provides a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle, making tight manoeuvres and obstacles easier to manage. The available Rear Camera Mirror provides a digital display that removes objects that could obstruct a traditional rear mirror view, such as passengers, headrests or the vehicle structure itself.
The available Night Vision system is designed to provide the driver with an infrared night vision image of the area beyond the headlamps that highlights and provides alerts when it detects pedestrians or large animals. The system provides additional alerts if the XT6 is approaching an identified pedestrian too quickly, potentially giving drivers more time to react.
The XT6’s first-row centre console offers a convenient, lined and lit storage area with a dedicated phone compartment and standard wireless charging, a flocked change holder and cup holders with retractable lids. In the second row, the rear console drawer glides on metal rails for smooth operation and offers convenient storage space. Third-row storage includes individual cup holders and phone storage for both passengers.
The rear cargo area features underfloor storage with a clever cover that stays open in any position or at any angle for additional carrying capacity and easy loading — an elegant and thoughtful detail with immeasurable functionality. The covered compartment in the floor of the XT6’s cargo area is perfect for stowing things out of sight.
The available, next-generation air ionizer is designed to clean the XT6’s air by reducing airborne contaminants such as pollen and fine particulate matter. Cleaner air can make the drive more comfortable, particularly for those who suffer seasonal allergies.
The Cadillac XT6 comes standard with seven airbags, including a roof rail-mounted head-curtain airbags for outboard positions of all three seating rows. It also gets an HD Rear Vision Camera with Remote Wash for impeccable visibility while reversing.
Other safety features include Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Front and Rear Park Assist, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Safety Alert Seat and Rear Seat Reminder.
