SUV expansion in the lineup of GM’s luxury brand continues. Among several expected models that could come already in the next year, the 2020 Cadillac XT7 seems most likely. Cadillac is finally about to introduce a large three-row crossover. At this point, it’s all about speculations, but latest reports are pretty serious on this matter. Allegedly, the new model will be pretty large and will offer tons of comfort and convenience.
Also, it will come with the company’s latest turbo engines in the offer, so there’s no doubt that the new 2020 Cadillac XT7 will be a strong competitor to, currently, undisputed German rivals. As we’ve just mentioned, the company still keeps details about this model as a secret. Moreover, we are still waiting for the official confirmation, while the unofficial reports are pretty convicted about this crossover. In any case, we will now more about it in the next couple of months.
2020 Cadillac XT7 Redesign
The 2020 Cadillac XT7 will be a brand-new model. That’s the only certain thing about it. Other than that, GM keeps everything as secret, so we must rely on rumors. According to them, the new crossover will ride on a modern unibody architecture. Most likely, it will be a familiar Omega platform, which the company currently uses for a full-size sedan Cadillac CT7. In terms of size, we will see a pretty typical approach from this company.
Just like with XT4 and XT5 models, this one will also walk on a fine line between two segments. In this case, this means between mid-size and full-size crossovers, though latest reports suggest it will be closer to the full-size segment, as the same reports suggest a wheelbase of more than 120 inches. Naturally, rear-wheel-drive will be standard, though AWD should be in the offer as well.
2020 Cadillac XT7 Exterior Design
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind about the 2020 Cadillac XT7 is its look. As we already mentioned, this will be a pretty large vehicle, so we count on a massive and muscular appearance. Of course, many details will be borrowed from smaller XT4 and XT5 models, while we count on a lot of inspiration taken from the new Escalade as well. All in all, the new model won’t be as sharp and edgy, as it was the case with the previous generation of models from this brand. The new one will be sleeker, with slightly rounded edges, in the manner of a real premium car.
Another interesting thing about the 2020 Cadillac XT7 that still bothers us is the body style. While some reports suggest a typical SUV body, there are also reports that claim the new crossover will come in a fancy coupe layout, which is pretty popular these days. With a sloping roof, the new 2020 Cadillac XT7 definitely wouldn’t be as practical as a classic SUV, but such design would definitely make this model even more exclusive.
Details about the 2020 Cadillac XT7 interior are completely unknown. At this point, we can only speculate about the cabin look, though there is no doubt that a lot of design solutions will be borrowed from other models in the brand, including the new Escalade. On the other side, there is no doubt that the new model will be very generous in terms of legroom. With such a long wheelbase, we are pretty sure that all three rows will be very generous in terms of space and even the last row will be adult friendly.
The same thing goes for the cargo area, which should feature a pretty respectable volume. Finally, there is no doubt that the list of standard equipment will be impressive. Count on all kinds of tech goodies and advanced safety features available already in standard models.
2020 Cadillac XT7 Engines
We count on two familiar turbo engines to be offered in the 2020 Cadillac XT7. There is no doubt that the base version will feature a 3.0-liter V6, which is good for about 404 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Higher versions should come with a new 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8, which delivers between 500 and 550 horsepower.
When it comes to transmission, we count on both 8- and 10-speed automatic gearboxes. As we already mentioned, base models will come with RWD layout, while the all-wheel-drive will be in the offer as well. Eventually, the company could introduce a hybrid powertrain option in the future.
2020 Cadillac XT7 Release Date and Price
The 2020 Cadillac XT7 is still just a rumor. The company is still quiet in this manner, but our reliable sources claim that Cadillac is definitely working on a new large crossover, which could come already in the next year. It is still early to talk about things like price, though we presume that base versions would roughly go around 55.000 dollars.
