Mark Phelan Detroit Free Press Published 7:33 AM EST Jan 19, 2019 Cadillac’s new 2019 XT6 family-carrying SUV is a subtle answer to a bold challenge. Possibly too subtle. Built to win luxury buyers who might otherwise choose an Acura MDX, Audi Q7 or Volvo XC90, the new Caddy SUV has its work cut out for it. In extensive talks with the XT6 development team, I’ve yet to hear any meaningful claims that it’s “first,” “most” or “best.” The XT6 appears to be a perfectly nice vehicle, but offers little to win buyers who weren’t already inclined to buy a Cadillac. That’s a lost opportunity in a profitable and growing vehicle segment that was waiting for a disruptive brand to dive in and set a new standard. “Perfectly nice” won’t do.

Those of us who were part of the MTV generation will no doubt recognise the nameplate, but the new 2015 Cadillac Escalade, although still an imposing leviathan, has left its backwards-facing cap and baggy trousers at home to hit the town in a more presentable suit and tie – still with a little bit of bling, of course. For all its 20- or 22-inch alloys, LED head and tail lamps and mammoth chromed grille, Cadillac is keen to highlight the new Escalade’s interior. Cut-and-sewn and wrapped materials, along with expensive-looking wood trim, are sprinkled amidst a waterfall-design centre console that cradles a eight-inch CUE infotainment system. There’s also a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel (configurable with four themes), a head-up display and ambient lighting. The seats have been redesigned to offer more comfort, and noise levels are kept more at bay by a stronger body structure, enhanced acoustic material and Bose Active Noise Cancellation … [Read more...] about Cadillac Escalade SUV
