    C'mon, let Lincoln have this one guys, they actually did a great job on the Aviator (and the big Navi) after many years of utterly miserably disappointing products. I'm not biased either and unlike many posters/members here you'll see me thanking both pro GM and anti GM posts. Looks the boys at Cadillac look like they had a really small budget to work with on the XT6 which is a shame.

    I won't buy one though till I know they're better than what Ford passes off for quality on the current Explorers. We're still bouncing between a sedan or SUV to replace our Q7, if it's going to be a SUV the Aviator is high on the list if its proved to be well constructed.

    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.

    It doesn't photograph well, I'll go even farther and say this new version of A&S does not photograph well as a lot of the interesting detail and surfacing doesn't show up in pictures. I was pleased when I saw the XT6 and CT5 at the NY Auto Show. Is the XT6 groundbreaking? No, absolutely not. But it is a strong entry into a segment that doesn't ask for excitement.

    I've sat in all of them and driven most and the only one that's worth a crap is the RLX, a dated car with very nice interior materials that no one wants.
    I'd take a non-sport RLX over the lower two trim levels of XTS but it doesn't compare to a Platinum.
    It's priced accordingly, a nice car for what it is. They're great deals as used cars.

    The other ones are noisy and lacking in ride quality with so-so interiors.
    The TLX in particular was a huge disappointment. I'd choose an MKZ over it every time.

    To try and belittle Cadillac, I wouldn't be surprised if the guy literally got his CTS in hopes of finding something wrong.. Only he couldn't.. And that pissed him off so much he had to resort to dogging out its key fob. So the comparison between the completely boring and bland faded Acura and the XT6 was the ultimate go to.

    BTW.. I'm tired of hearing that the pricing in the vehicle is too high. It's not. It's exactly where it should be over the XT5, which has proven to be very successful. The only issue I have with the XT6 is that it absolutely needs an optional engine above the regular 3.6L

    This is the problem with this site, we have mod's that will go out of their way to post a trashing article so it shows up in the news ticker. Yet articles like this waste away in the suggested section https://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/...1500-a-293391/

    The irony with XT6 is that Lincoln fans have been calling for a D3 based Aviator for years to replace the poor selling MKT. Anyone familiar with the FWD/AWD Explorer will quickly recognize similarities between it and the Cadillac XT6. External dimensions are near on identical but shifting to the interior and the Explorer has about 3" more shoulder room.

    So given the above and the efficiency and power available from the 3.6 and 9-speed auto, the 3.6 XT6 should sell reasonably well even at the price premiumm in spite of RWD Aviator.

    3.6L has more than enough power and I won't buy a car with a premium fuel requirement.

    I truly wonder how cannibalistic the XT6 is going to be on the Escalade at this point.


    And to all you that say that MPG doesn't matter in this class, you bet it does. If rich people can not stop at the gas station they wont.

    From a car guy standpoint, Lincoln seems to have the better product, from a Business standpoint, Cadillac already did the Lincoln thing with the SRX.
    From a Chassis tuning, no one has driven either, Remember Cadillac is debuting a new Suspension technology with XT6, if you drove the Saab’s and Mazda’s of the early to mid 2000; you know for sure FWD does not necessarily take away from the commuter driving experience.


    But hey, Lincoln has a good product

    CMI!! It's been way too long, so glad to see you back on a forum. I agree that this needs an optional engine, like the TTV6. For those think this is an Aviator competitor clearly don't know who Cadillac is targeting with this. The XT6 is really more like a spiritual successor to the first gen SRX with a more wagon like profile and feel.

    You're right, Caddy did a RWD crossover first w/ the SRX, but don't you think that it's failure had nothing to do w/ it being RWD and more w/ it looking like this:

    I really don't think the fuel economy numbers are that bad. Are they great? No, but they are right where anyone would expect them to be for this powertrain.

    Wow, talk about ignorant. You just can't accept that someone, who not only owns a CTS but has owned other Cadillacs, isn't impressed with the direction they are going or on tangible quality issues. Further, you were the one that brought Acura into the discussion not him.

    I guess when the mark of a vehicle's powertrain excellence is unknowingly getting out accelerated by an Impala on the street, then I guess I shouldn't expect much substance in any of your posts.

    In the words of dslay04, grow up.
