    This has front wheel drive proportions. It’s not based on the CT6?

    Nope. It's FWD. Closer to the XT5.

    There is no omega based crossover coming to Cadillac due to Mark Reuss.

    Dimensions look to be very close to current FWD/AWD Explorer which is understandable
    knowing that it's based on the same platform as FWD/AWD XTS....

    Interesting mash up coming between XT6 and Aviator later in the year...

    ..................

    I'm Cadillac's biggest fan. That's all I have in me to say. I don't want these GMI'ers to think I'm GM bashing if I tell the truth.

    You know what? Ef, them and it... THIS IS RIDICULOUS. Cadillac has officially lost it's identity. The Escala design was meant to go SLIGHTLY horizontal in the lighting treatment. They are going so horizontal that it doesn't even look like a Cadillac anymore.

    XT6 almost looks like Acura made it from the front. Rear end indeed is lost - last (D) pillar says Volvo.

    On TOP of all of this, FWD is standard. I thought the Aviator debut would have sent Cadillac's team scrambling back to a huddle and saying WE MUST MAKE AWD STANDARD but nope. Same GM shared 3.6 that can be found in an Impala or ANYTHING big in GM shows up in Cadillac yet again.

    I HOPE GM EXECS ARE READING THIS: STOP PADDING YOUR WALLETS AND YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS. COST CUTTING CAN BE SEEN TO MY 13 YEAR OLD.

    EDIT: This is NOT an ugly vehicle by any means it just doesn't impress. As the press release states, its simply for the CURRENT Escalade buyer that wants something smaller but bigger than XT5. Aviator will bring in new customers from OTHER brands more than this will.

    Lincoln's Aviator and Cadillac XT6 do NOT go in the same sentence. The cement has dried. It's over and done. Nearest competitor is the MDX. As far as XT6 being XTS based, XT6 is a GMC Acadia. It only has two seats in it's 3rd row. Its not even an Enclave or Traverse as many on this site thought.

    I believe it was NEVER designed to be a CUV from day dot

    They wasted billions on Alpha and omega just to make a few cars and now they're canceling most of them

    You seem confused, you should probably go back and research the Escala again, there are MANY cues found on this. Also, AWD is standard on the Sport.

    XTS is Epsilon platform, XT6 is Lambda platform, as is Enclave, Acadia, Traverse, and XT5.

    XTS is Epsilon platform, XT6 is Lambda platform, as is Enclave, Acadia, Traverse, and XT5.
    Acadia is NOT on the same Enclave and Traverse platform as it was in its first gen. Well maybe same but its on a shorter wheelbase version now. XT6 shares a platform with Acadia and NOT Enclave and Traverse.

    Perhaps YOU should go back and research - FWD IS STANDARD

    BTW, I did NOT say they don't share cues. I said Escala's horizontal elements were meant to introduce SOME to Cadillac. Not CHANGE Cadillac's vertical lighting identity as a whole. Go look at the soon to be discontinued CT6 and XTS. THATS where XT6 missed the mark.

    The lighting on the front end of the XT6 reminds me of when the Ford Edge had regular front end head light lighting and had those vertical LED's on its bumper.

    Old age is failing you, they are all on the same platform, they just have different wheelbases.

    No really, there are 2 trims, one is FWD standard AWD optional, the other is AWD only.

    Senior moment, it's ok, happens to everyone your age. The Escala had horizontal headlights with vertical LEDs on the bumper. Seriously. You really need to go google it. You're face, it's got egg running down its entirety.

    They should go back to carpeting the lower door panels so people won't bitch about the hard plastic, which also scratches when you kick the door open.

    I'm betting the light interior ceiling is extra cost. Poo!

    If they were just going to rebadge this why didn’t it come out 10 yrs ago, still dont get it. Side profile looks painfully plain, front looks good, back is decent. Interior looks 5 yrs old, oh wait it is. Only the 3.6 available, sigh. Seems like GM likes being a punchline in the industry. Oh well.
    Bring back Pontiac
