2020 Cadillac XT6 Launches In China With 237 HP 2.0L Turbo-Four

Almost four months after going on sale in the United States, the 2020 XT6 launched in China, which will probably be its biggest market worldwide.

Cadillac’s three-row midsize SUV is available locally in five variants, with five exterior colors and four interior color and trim options. It also adopts the dual-exterior product strategy, offering Luxury and Sport models.

While in the States the XT6 is powered by a 3.6-liter gasoline V6 that delivers 310 HP and 373 Nm (271 lb-ft) of torque, Chinese buyers get it exclusively with GM’s eighth-generation Ecotec 2.0T four-cylinder — the same engine adopted by China’s facelifted XT5.

The 2.0-liter turbo for makes 240 PS (237 hp / 177 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque between 1,500 and 4,000 rpm and is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission with optional paddle shifters. Cadillac says the engine features “multiple efficiency-enhancing technologies, including the tripower variable valve management system with three distinct operating modes and a high-pressure direct injection fuel system.”

As with the U.S. model, China’s Cadillac XT6 promises class-leading headroom for each of the three rows of seats. It comes in six- or seven-seat configurations, with the six-seat version being the only one in the segment to come with two captain’s chairs in the second row. Addidionally, passengers have no less than twenty-five storage spaces for their personal belongings.

The XT6 also comes with a comprehensive technology package, offering features such as Active Noise Control, standard adaptive LED matrix headlights with cornering functionality, up to 20 standard driver assistance systems, and the new-generation Cadillac User Experience (CUE) infotainment system with an 8-inch screen and over-the-air update capability.

Luxury-wise, passengers will be pampered by cut-and-sewn Opus leather seats, a choice of exotic wood or carbon fiber finishes, 14-speaker Bose Performance sound system, a next-generation air ionizer, UltraView power sunroof with a power sunshade, and more.

Cadillac has priced the 2020 XT6 in the People’s Republic between RMB419,700 and RMB549,700 ($61,000-$78,000 at current exchange rates).

    I saw this on the road yesterday for the very first time and thought it looked kind of interesting if it were any other car other than a Cadillac.

      I didn’t see one yet. But you are absolutely correct, it doesn’t look very engaging. It’s kinda boring tbh imo.

    It’s like someone at Cadillac asked; “what else can we do to make them hate the car?”

    This car doesn’t even look like a Cadillac. XT6 Luxury doesn’t look luxurious and XT6 Sporty doesn’t look sporty. Both should called XT6 Boring.
