In an email to Roadshow on Wednesday, the automaker confirmed it will reveal "the latest addition to the Cadillac portfolio" as part of the Detroit Auto Show festivities. When asked if the vehicle in question is, in fact, the XT6, a Cadillac spokesperson said "I can't confirm anything just yet," though given the original email had XT6 in the subject line, well, it's got to be that.
