Just like almost every established automaker in the world, Cadillac is also expanding its crossover lineup. The upcoming 2020 Cadillac XT7 will be one such a model that will arrive by the end of the year. XT7 model will ride on the GM’s Omega platform. The new model will surely represent an interesting model in the full-size coupe-like crossover segment.
However, not all of the details are available yet. The XT7 will arrive as a four-door model. It will offer attractive design and very modern interior. Under the hood, we expect two powertrain options. Probably six and eight-cylinder engines.
2020 Cadillac XT7 Design and Platform Review
Design of the all-new 2020 Cadillac XT7 won’t introduce many surprises. Just like the rest of the XT models, XT7 will wear the same design language. Design is clean and attractive. The full-size coupe-like crossover will ride on the GM’s Omega platform. On top of that, XT7 will surely arrive as a four-door model.
The front fascia is similar to the XT6 model. Also, some cues are borrowed from the XT5 SUV. However, XT7 crossover will offer larger front grille and coupe-like roofline. The front is dominated with chrome accents and LED headlights will be standard.
Interior Offers Comfort and Techy Cabin
When it comes to the interior, the 2020 Cadillac XT7 will be very luxurious. On top of that, the cabin will be practical and functional. We can bet on the premium materials and plenty of soft-touch surfaces. Interior layout is not available yet, along with the seating layout. However, XT7 will surely arrive with three rows of seats.
That means there will be room for six, seven or possibly eight passengers. Some reports are suggesting a very customizable interior in terms of numbers of seats. Higher trim levels are offering a captain’s chairs so a reduced number of seats is logical. Whatsoever, legroom will be ample, especially up front. The spacious cargo area is another thing that is very certain. The dashboard is all-new and very unique. The large touchscreen will dominate the dash department. Also, XT7 crossover will offer numerous driver-assistance features as standard.
2020 Cadillac XT7 Engine Output and Performance
The base model will ride on a powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 335 hp. However, Cadillac will surely offer at least one more engine option. A speculated 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 should arrive as an option. This unit will deliver around 400 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque.
Also, we can expect a 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 that will generate around 500 horses. However, this is just speculation for now. Speaking of speculations, the gearbox is another interesting theme. While some reports are suggesting a 10-speed transmission, the company’s 8-speed automatic transmission seems like a probable outcome. If the 2020 Cadillac XT7 arrives with the Omega platform, rear-wheel-drive setup will be standard.
Price and Release Date
It is perhaps too early to discuss the price of the all-new 2020 Cadillac XT7. Pricing is not available yet, but we expect the price between $40,000 and $50,000 for the base model. This coupe-like crossover will look to rival the newest models from Audi, BMW, and Mercedes. XT7 model will become available by the end of 2019.
