The 6ga wire at the range is good for 60Amps
The wall oven and the cooktop however are likely to need more that 12ga (20Amp)
Check the appliances and the literature.

To answer the question... the new appliances and new locations will need new wire pulled; use wire of the correct size/type and # of conductors.
