Any suggestions on what camera to move into that would give me better results with the kit lense.

Pretty much any lens will be better than your current kit lens. If you do not have any specific complaints about your A6000, I would strongly suggest switching just the lens and keep using A6000 until it dies or starts limiting you in some way.

I'm looking for sharper photos and more depth.

Do you mean you want less depth? Meaning shallower depth of field and more blurry backgrounds? If so, then an f/2.8 zoom would do the fair job or a prime lens if you want really shallow depth of field. For the zooms, I guess your choices are the excellent but expensive Sony 16-55mm, a fairly compact Sigma 18-50mm and a Tamron with a broader 17-70mm zoom range.
