Eric's Autos: 2020 Cadillac XT6
Cadillac already has a three-row SUV -- so why make another one?
Probably because Cadillac buyers want a different kind of three-row SUV -- one that's almost as big and nearly as roomy as the one Cadillac already has in the lineup.
But not nearly as expensive.
Until now, the Escalade was the only Cadillac that could accommodate more than five people. It's also the most expensive Cadillac, with a base price of $75,195.
That's a price only a few people can afford -- even Cadillac buyers.
The new XT6 gives buyers room for more people at a price more people can handle.
What It Is
Cadillac's newest and almost-biggest SUV.
Technically, the seven-passenger, three-row XT6 is a crossover SUV, meaning it's more carlike than trucklike under its skin.
The Escalade -- which is a cousin of the Chevy Tahoe -- is based on GM's half-ton truck architecture. It has body-on-frame construction and comes standard with a big (6.2-liter) V-8 engine. It has truck-type four-wheel drive with low-range gearing. It can also tow as much as 8,100 pounds.
