The Cadillac has now come in the attention span of the crossover SUV world with new model 2017 Cadillac XT7. There’s no doubt that Cadillac has marked its prominence in the global auto markets with world-class luxury and the makers are now striving for power and efficiency. To do so, the company definitely has to present a game changer crossover as the respective segment is only growing competitive. The debut of an all-new Cadillac XT7 as 2017 Cadillac XT7 would certainly be feasible.
2017 Cadillac XT7 – Fantastic Design:
As far as design and styling are concerned, the Cadillac XT7 is reported to share body profile with XT5. As part of the company’s signature styling, this crossover’s front fascia is doubted to get an upright approach. This also means that the grille is all set to integrate stylistic chrome treatments for a premium styling. New rendered images have come up which show that the headlights will garner much interest with an all-new styling. According to what several reports hold, the 2017 Cadillac XT7 is supposed to underpin its sibling and use the long-wheelbase version of its platform.
The Cadillac XT7 is expected to bring along Independent MacPherson struts on both front and rear suspension. The chassis will incorporate 2-point latch system to maintain flexibility which is just required in the off-road drive.
2017 Cadillac XT7 – Engine Performance:
Performance wise, a 3.6L V6 engine is supposed to breathe life into this Cadillac XT7. This engine is intended to get a DOHC setup for the valvetrain; all but to produce brawny outputs of more than 310 HP. The fuel economy figures might stay close to 22 mpg/25 mpg city/highway.
The platform’s flexibility opens up possibilities to garner versatile driving that eventually makes up for a competitive performance. As a result, segment heavyweights like BMW X7, Chevrolet Traverse, and Nissan Murano should face a stiff challenge. The interior cabin is expected to be just as fascinating with stylistic chrome and wood treatments. The front seats will be of bucket type and are expected to wear perforated leather upholstery as standard.
The Cadillac President, Johan De Nysschen has said that there are several perks tied to borrowing the XT5’s platform. Another advantage of Cadillac borrowing XT5’s platform is that the new XT7 doesn’t need to be built right from the scratch which saves production cost. Experts say that the company might have plans to launch this 2017 Cadillac XT7 during the last quarters of 2017 or probably by the early start of 2018.
