As you may know, Cadillac is currently undergoing a major transformation. Over the past year, the brand has added the compact XT4 crossover and unveiled the XT6 mid-size SUV, which will fit between the XT5 and the Escalade. The CTS, XTS and CT6 are all disappearing and new sedans called CT4 and CT5 will replace them. Moreover, Cadillac plans to launch a new model every six months until 2021 and is currently working to move the teams in its headquarters in New York (the famous "Cadillac House" inaugurated in 2015 ) in Warren, Michigan, to get closer to the designers and engineers teams. Let's not forget that General Motors decided to make Cadillac the spearhead of all of its brands for the development and commercialization of electric vehicles, which should begin around 2021-2022. Another notable change is expected, according to the Detroit Free Press website. Starting with the Cadillac XT6 and other 2020 models, the company will use a new torque-based naming system to help consumers better understand the power differences across the range. While turbocharged engines and electrified systems are spreading more and more, torque is a better indicator of available power than the use of displacement, says Cadillac President Steve Carlisle, adding that the new badges will deliver "the balance between fuel economy and performance." For North Americans like us, adaptation will be a little more difficult. You see, since Cadillac is a global brand and the majority of the world uses the metric system, the torque will be expressed in newton-meter (Nm) rather than in foot-pounds (lb-ft), rounding to the nearest hundred. In the case of the XT6, its 3.6-liter V6 generates 271 lb-ft of torque or 367 Nm, which means it will carry a "400" badge on the tailgate. Cadillac will make an exception for its sporty V Series, but it remains to be seen if and how their names will be changed.
