It has been quite some time the buzzes about the 2021 Cadillac XT7 circulating among car enthusiasts around the world. Unfortunately, it has to be another period of waiting until at least next year for it to hit the road for real.
So far, the buzzes are just there that build the hype of a lot of sport utility vehicle fans out there. Even the official website of Cadillac has not been releasing factual information regarding this long-awaited SUV to continue the XT line from Cadillac.
In the official website of Cadillac, the latest version of XT remains the XT6 labeled as the 2020 model version. The XT6 for 2020 is the current segment-leading standard third-row headroom with 37.2-inch of space there. This car is offered by Cadillac, starting at S57,095 so far, with three different trims to choose from. The trims include Premium Luxury AWD, Premium Luxury FWD, and Sport AWD. All things about the XT6 of 2020 will be the basic ideas to expect from the XT7.
2021 Cadillac XT-7 Updates
So, what about the XT7? Well, a lot of rumors and expectations have been posted all over the places within the online world of car enthusiasts. The car will most likely be a coupe-like full-size luxury crossover utility vehicle.
It looks like an SUV but brings some differences. The idea of XT7 is pretty much similar to CT7 to continue its predecessors under the same name. Nevertheless, it is highly expected that Cadillac will release the car in 2021 in which remains unclear for now.
2021 Cadillac XT7 Engine Specs
The new XT7 will most likely be given a starting price at over $42,000 for the base model. In terms of the performance aspect, under the hood of the car may well be either a V6 or V8 turbocharged units to power its entire build.
The possibility of a hybrid version is there as well, although that remains relatively small in chance. The use of a V4 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is also possible for other markets like China and Asian countries that demand more at an affordable price.
Another possibility of a power unit for the 2021 Cadillac XT7 is a 3.6-liter V6 with approximately 310 horsepower of its peak power. All of those possible engines paired with a 9-speed or a 10-speed automatic type of transmission.
Hopefully, all of those different options of the power unit and transmission will be available to choose freely in regards to the different trim levels of the car itself. That will be like the other trims of the 2020 Cadillac XT6 to meet different preferences.
2021 Cadillac XT7 Design Exterior & Interior
The 2021 XT7 will have a decent look in terms of its exterior, just like the current 2020 model of XT6. Some aspects of the CT6 sedan could be incorporated by Cadillac to enhance the XT7 further.
Looking at the fact that the 2020 XT6 offers the space for seven passengers, the 2021 XT7 will most likely be having at least the same capacity. Yet, it remains a possibility for it to only have the interior space for six passengers though despite its full-size build of the exterior.
Inside the New XT7
Few inspirations from the CT6 could well be there on the front and rear fascia of the XT7 for the 2021 model. The interior, on the other hand, could be incorporating high-quality leather upholstery.
That will boost both the appeal of the interior cabin and the comfort as well. Expect a lot of advanced tech features to be inside the car, such as Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports, a rearview camera, a high-quality audio system, and some more. The center console will be in a touchscreen with at least 8-inch of size.
Well, those are some of the things that have been circulating in terms of the XT7 from Cadillac for the year 2021. Assuming that the car will be a coupe-like full-size crossover, it will have some fierce competitors from other car manufacturers.
Some possible cars to have a decent fight with the 2021 XT7 include BMW X8, Audi Q7, and Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class Coupe. For now, let all of the buzzes about the 2021 Cadillac XT7 remain circulating in the vast scope of car enthusiast communities.
