Current ride: 2015 Chevy Sonic 1.8L 5sp manual sedan
Previous ride: 1998 Subaru Legacy Wagon AWD 2.2L 5sp manual
Next ride: Maybe a 2020 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD
I cannot make a case suggesting that the Ford brand is superior to the Chevy brand and thus Mustang sales are stronger because of that. I can make the case that the Cadillac brand is held in higher regard by the general public and will make it easier to move product, even if the Lincoln is widely considered the superior luxury crossover.
None of that is to say that the public will not find the XT6 to be the better vehicle in head to head comparison and speak with their money. It's a great looking crossover from a brand people still value, it'll sell, for the same reason Lexus RX/NX crossovers sell, brand equity.

I mean there isn't a 7th gen Camaro headed down the pipeline is there?
Being an icon doesn't necessarily mean that you last forever. Sears was the iconic American retailer and is all but gone. The Camaro may be on the way out, but it's had a hell of a run.
Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.
In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.
Mustang is the "Kleenex" product of the segment At least Dodge did something different with their product, they've made the Challenger the wet wipe of the segment...meanwhile the Carmaro has rendered itself as just a copy of the Mustang.
I guess therin lies the problem with GM as of late, as I said a while back...coining the term "me too product" that is all GM is doing right now, just a bunch of rehashes in saturated segments, outside the C8 of course. They offer absolutely nothing over what is already there and nothing innovative. Name one feature in the XT6 that you cant get anywhere else?
Some of you here are the problem "coupes dont have 4 doors" or "x6 is fugly", since apparently GM management thinks like you they've missed out on 2 booming niche segments while you sit here and cheer about a $74,000 Acadia. More CUVs you want, then GM will be happy to oblige....they'll give us the most basic CUV if we dont raise our standards.
I am on the border of genius and crazy. I keep trying to cross over into genius, but ICE keeps sending me back to the crazy side of the border.

I recently saw a review for the Aviator on Motorweek.
I'm really impressed. I'd even consider switching-teams for it.
XT6 review from same organization...note the lack of superlatives used in comparison to the above...almost comes off as a first drive review:
It may not be right but it's the way things are.
After driving the two, I've come to the conclusion that the Mustang is the easier of the two to live with from day to day and I suspect the Challenger would be even more so. For a lot of folks, that takes priority over pin sharp handling and road holding.
