Looking to get into the three-row crossover game with something more nimble than the full-size Escalade, Cadillac has launched the XT6. Based on the same underpinnings as the GMC Acadia and the smaller Cadillac XT5, the mid-size XT6 is spacious and family-friendly. It has many of Cadillac's unique styling cues, including a front end that is inspired by the Cadillac Escala concept, along with upscale trim and different lighting elements.
