General Motors' luxury brand Cadillac is beginning a full-on assault on brand identification in order to take back America's hearts as a status symbol for opulence.
The look at the brand's first battery-electric vehicle came as part of the 2019 Detroit auto-show debut for the 2020 Cadillac XT6, a three-row crossover utility vehicle powered by a very conventional 3.6-liter V-6 gasoline engine. This will be the first model derived from GM's future EV platform.
That would be an all-new, fully electric vehicle for Cadillac. Those details will be revealed closer to launch, we're told. "It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility". Now it appears GM is reverting to historic practice, and plans to launch new long-range electric vehicles from the top of its brand portfolio. It can also be transformed rapidly, for a "short design and development lead time", allowing the automaker to more quickly respond to changing consumer tastes.
The new platform will be flexible, and adaptable to front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations.
Cadillac's electric crossover is expected to be a mid-size model created to take on the Tesla Model X and offer buyers the choice of two or three rows of seats. Today's announcement is part of Cadillac's aggressive product acceleration announced this week - in addition to revealing the all-new XT6 crossover, the company also hinted at both a future Escalade and an upcoming performance sedan.
The drive units and battery cells are designed for maximum usability throughout GM's vehicle line so don't be surprised to see the drivetrain and packs show up in other EVs down the road.
