Nevertheless, one fast take a look at the Vistiq makes it clear that this electrical SUV is much like the XT6 in scope and use case. And all Cadillac has to say about its measurement is that it’s “a particular and revolutionary luxurious three-row SUV, designed for the trendy household.”
It appears to be like slightly like a Lyriq that’s been de-flattened with cargo area and third-row consolation given precedence over fashion. That mentioned, the Vistiq nonetheless has loads of fashion because it borrows its lightning parts from the electrical Cadillac household look. Large 22-inch wheels fill the arches, and it seems to be sporting Michelin Pilot Sport All Season tires.
Its rear badging reads “600 E4.” The E4 bit refers to it being all-wheel drive, whereas the quantity 600 refers to approximate torque in newton meters on new Cadillacs. That quantity converts to 443 pound-feet of torque, but when this mannequin makes use of comparable operating gear because the dual-motor Lyriq, then we will anticipate it to match or higher that mannequin’s 500 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque.
