Interview with the Chief Engineer of the XT6


Skip to 1:26 for the beginning of the interview snippets with John Plonka, chief engineer of the Cadillax XT6. He notes that the XT6 shares a platform with the Cadillac XT5 that has been lengthened and widened to provide the necessary size of a three-row crossover.

It was also interesting to hear that the primary competitive benchmarks for the XT6 were the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90.
