The American luxury carmaker started a completely new line of crossovers a few years ago and after the last-year launch of XT6, everyone expects to see Cadillac going full-size. This makes perfect sense, especially if we consider that this manufacturer has always been famous for super large cars. The new model would come as the 2021 Cadillac XT7, according to the latest reports. It would be even longer than the XT6 model but would remain a crossover, rather than being a traditional SUV like Escalade.
At this point, we don’t know too much about the 2021 Cadillac XT7. More precisely, this crossover is just a rumor for now and we are still waiting to hear something from the officials. We can only rely on various internet posts for now and speculate about the design of this model. Therefore, stay reserved about the following paragraphs, even though some sources suggest the new model could come already in the next year.
2021 Cadillac XT7 Redesign
The 2021 Cadillac XT7 would be a full-size crossover. Although we still don’t have any kind of official information, it’s quite easy to predict some of the most general things about this potential model. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the platform and we have no doubt that the company would use a stretched version of a familiar C1 architecture. That means the same layout as the one that characterizes Chevy Traverse, which measures nearly 121 inches in wheelbase. For comparison, the XT6 is good for about 112.7 inches.
In terms of styling, we presume that the company would stick to the latest design language. Most of the details would be borrowed from the mid-size sibling, though there is no doubt that the 2021 Cadillac XT7 would come with a couple of distinctive design solutions as well, which would accentuate its flagship character.
One of the biggest complaints about the XT6 model is those in terms of interior quality. So, we have no doubt that Cadillac’s engineers will put special attention to this aspect of the car. We count on much better materials and improved aesthetics, as this model is going to compete with German rivals like BMW X7 or Mercedes-Benz GLS. Besides attractive aesthetics and hi-quality materials, we also count on a full load of tech goodies and other comfort and convenience features.
On the other side, the new 2021 Cadillac XT7 definitely won’t lack space. With nearly 121 inches between the axles, we have no doubt it will offer the same amount of space as Traverse. This means you may count on three very spacious rows of seats, where the third row also accommodates adults with ease. The cargo area should feature similar ratings as well, which would mean nearly 100 cubic feet of the overall cargo volume.
2021 Cadillac XT7 Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, we expect that the 2021 Cadillac XT7 will rely on familiar engine options. Base models should come with a familiar 3.6-liter V6, which puts out around 310 horsepower and comes in pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Some sources also suggest the possibility to see a 2.0-liter turbo-four with 237 horses in the offer. As we are talking about a flagship crossover, we would also expect to see some hi-performance version in the offer. At this point, details aren’t available.
2021 Cadillac XT7 Release Date and Price
At this point, the 2021 Cadillac XT7 is just a speculation. However, there are many unofficial reports that suggest we could see this model already in the next year. When it comes to the price, we presume that base models would go somewhere around 70.000 dollars.
