    How is it trolling? It's literally what the article is titled:

    LOL.

    Are you seeing things in XT6 the rest of us are missing?

    Prove to us how, at its current price-point, XT6 at least matches or exceeds the competition in:

    1.) Drivetrain (standard and optional)

    2.) Fuel Economy

    3.) Interior Design

    4.) Interior Materials

    5.) Amenities

    6.) Bespoke/Limited interior/exterior choices and trim levels

    7.) Value for the money

    I won't ask you about looks, as they can be subjective, but let's not kid ourselves; XT6 is pretty damn ugly. I needed bleach for my eyes when I saw one driving around about a week ago. Yuck.

    But anyways since you're at it, let's also hear you try to defend:

    1.) Lack of an up-level motor/hybrid option

    2.) Lack of Magnetic Ride Control

    3.) Lack of Super Cruise.

    4.) Puny 8" infotainment screen with no up-level option

    5.) No customizable TFT cockpit/gauges

    But yeah, keep telling us how awesome mediocre cars like XT6 are, oh ever knowing oracle of luxury.

    The fact that we waited for this long for a large Cadillac CUV and got... "this"... is a slap in the face of every Cadillac enthusiast and person who cares about the brand.

    I mean being real here, why would anybody consider this thing at the price point it occupies when cars like Aviator, X5, GLE, MDX, and XC90 can be had for less, even, or a little more money?

    Per GM's usual modus operandi... bring on the incentives. Ugh.
    XT6 vs Aviator and now XT4 vs Corsair are the perfect examples of why Cadillac is a failure and will continue to fail.

    If you can't see the difference in commitment between the Cadillacs and Lincolns, you're a dolt and should remove yourself from the gene pool.

    2.) The Q7 comes with a beastly 3.0T engine that blows away the corporate 3.6 in drivability (torque) and smoothness.

    The 3.6 has no business in this car, period. The 3.0T in the CT5 should have been the base motor for this car, especially considering where they decided to price it at.

    I tried telling you that a few years back, my guy. I saw it coming with CT6 and Continental, basing it on what each brand had to work with (i.e. a brand new, from the ground up platform designed only for one brand v. a corporate platform used as a stopgap for the brand).

    XT6 v. Aviator? Not even close, I agree. They don't even belong in the same sentence.

    XT4 v. Corsair I can live with, as XT4 is a decent little CUV, and I'm not that big of a fan of Corsair as I am of Aviator and Navigator. I think they're both solid entries, but XT4 needs a more powerful base motor, and a more powerful motor as an option as well.

    Lincoln pulled out all the stops with Navigator, so NG Escalade better not be another **** up like XT6.

    Low MPG is always a sign of too small an engine or too much weight. Caddie needs to pull out that 3.0L Turbo or many XT6's will sit on the lots.

    1) Its a ACURA.. not a CADILLAC.. thus the price difference is justified. ALSO.. THE CADDY is LARGER. Go figure that it would get a WHOLE 1MPG less than the Honda.

    2) 3.0L Audi engine BEASTLY??? WTH have U been driving? I know BEASTLY... and the 3.0L Q7 ain't it. What makes it worse is that not only have I run my '14 Impala 3.6L up against a zealous German loving fool in one.. I whipped that Kraut ass. Funny thing is that the Acadia Denali is damn near as fast as the Q7. Jesus Christ Man. Stop sniffing the European glue. And while U're at it.. turn in that CTS. U don't deserve it

    As someone who drove the piss out of a 3.6 with a manual there is no way it'll come close to the EPA estimate in real life.

    Apparently it's not his headline, but the headline of Carbuzz.

    Basically what Cadillac needs to do is make everything RWD based. Everything. Even the XT4 should be RWD. Then.. And only then will they gain the respect of GMI.. Most of which won't even test drive, let alone buy it or the Aviator despite it being apparently the second coming of the automobile. Lmfao

    Wait wha.. Something is wrong with my vision. Did someone really type that?

    I have it in good authority that U can drain a Volt's gas tank damn quick if U spend the entire time driving it at redline

    Gotta read between the lines. I drove the piss out of it and it excelled at MPG. This wont even come close. All you have to do is look at fuelly and any of the GM 3.6 CUVs to see they offer disappointing MPG.

    Solid effort GM.


    It's sad what you GM Homer's get upset about. Sarcasm is dead on you dolts.

    No one cares much about fuel economy in this segment.

    But the styling and interior need some help. It doesnt look expensive enough to me.

    But I still prefer its looks to the Q5 and Q7.

    Cadillac haters are going to have conniptions over this, but this car is going to be a big hit. I predict great ride and handling balance and very quiet interior with great isolation from the outside world. I never really thought luxury car buyers give many ****s about MPG. Cadillac’s biggest mistakes of the past was in selling out to gas mileage. Does anyone remember the 3rd gen Seville?

    This car is gonna rock the sales charts. And I want to point out to GMIers is that you all already pronounced the law of car judgments is that whichever vehicle tops the sales charts is the best vehicle.
