Cadillac XT6 2021

Cadillac XT6 2021

Cadillac Although it shares components with the GMC Acadia, the 2021 Cadillac XT6 manages to hide its roots in the market with a convincingly upscale design and feature-rich list of options. Two engines are offered — a turbocharged four-cylinder and a V-6 — and there’s also a sporty model with a torque-guided rear differential.

Despite its performance parts, the XT6 lacks the driving dynamism of sporty rivals such as the Audi Q7 and BMW X5. Instead, it appears to be better suited to take on its crosstown rival, the Lincoln Aviator. Cadillac offers plenty of coveted equipment in the XT6, including a suite of driver-assist features, three rows of seats, and a power liftgate.



A turbocharged four-cylinder engine is joining the 2021 XT6 lineup as part of the new entry-level design level. Shared with the smaller XT5 SUV, the turbocharged engine generates 237 horsepower and is mated to a nine -speed automatic transmission and either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive . A 310-horsepower V-6 is still standard on Premium Luxury and Sport models. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration is now standard across the range, and the top-of-the-line Sport model receives a new design with 20-inch wheels.

In our experience, the Sport chassis upgrades don’t provide a noticeable improvement in performance, so we stick with the mid-range Premium Luxury trim. To that, we’re adding a Comfort and Air Quality package (heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, and air ionizer) as well as second-row captain’s chairs, an interior navigation system, and a Bose Premium 14-speaker stereo system.

Engine, Transmission & Performance Cadillac


For 2021, XT6 buyers can choose between a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 237 horsepower or a 310-horsepower V-6. Both come with a nine-speed automatic and can be front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Three trim levels – Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport – make up the XT6 package, with the first two focusing on comfort and the Sport receiving performance-enhancing additions such as a torque-steered rear differential and re-tuned steering .

A platinum package is available and gives the XT6 all the good stuff. Regardless of the design, the XT6 certainly looks handsome; 20-inch wheels come standard, but you can get 21-inch wheels on the Sport model. Handling is reasonably sporty for a three-row crossover, but one wouldn’t mistake it for a nimble CT5-V.

Cadillac fuel economy

The EPA hasn’t released fuel economy estimates for the four-turbo engine yet, but the V-6-powered XT6’s ratings are on par with those of other six-cylinder competitors like the Acura MDX and Mercedes-Benz GLE450. Front-wheel drive V-6 models should manage 18 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined; in comparison ,

The four-wheel drive models, however, do a little worse in town and highway but see the same combined average of 20 mpg. The XT6’s result in our 200-mile highway fuel economy test was less rosy, with our all-wheel drive vehicle delivering just 22 mpg. For reference, the MDX runs 25 mpg on this road, and the GLE450, 23.

Interior, comfort and cargo Cadillac

Inside, Cadillac offers seven- and eight-seater designs, featuring either a pair of captain’s chairs or a three-seater in the second row. All XT6 cars come in a third row that seats three passengers. The XT6’s interior trim is unimpressive when compared to that of the Audi Q7 or BMW X5. Cargo space is also limited, with only three hand luggage. But lowering the two back rows makes enough room for 31 bags. The Q7 accommodates four bags behind its third row but only seats 25 down, making the XT6 the best choice if you need to carry large, bulky payloads regularly.

Information, entertainment and contact Cadillac


All XT6 models come with a touchscreen infotainment screen, wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Wi-Fi and wireless smartphone charging. The latest Cadillac version of CUE software (Cadillac User Experience) is clearly displayed on the 8.0-inch screen and responds quickly to commands. Navigation is an optional feature, as is the rear seat entertainment system with DVD player.

Cadillac Safety and Driver Assistance Features

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the XT6 a five-star rating, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named it a Top Safety Pick+, the agency’s highest honor. A suite of driver assistance features (automatic emergency braking, lane assist, and blind spot monitoring) are standard, while more advanced features (adaptive cruise control, night vision) are available as options. Key safety features include:

 Standard Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

 Standard Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist

 Adaptive cruise control and night vision are available

Warranty and maintenance coverage

All Cadillac models, including the XT6, come with the same standard warranty package. It entails bumper-to-bumper coverage for four years or 50,000 miles and a powertrain warranty of six years or 70,000 miles. Most of the XT6’s European competitors offer a four-year/50,000-only package for both warranties.

 The limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles

 The powertrain warranty covers six years or 70,000 miles

 Free maintenance is covered for the first visit
