Introduced in 2020, the Cadillac XT6 is the brand’s latest mid-size, three-row crossover model, offering the practicality of seven-passenger seating to shoppers who find the full-size Escalade a bit too unwieldy.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
New this year, the entry-level Luxury trim now includes blind spot monitoring, lane change alert, and rear cross-traffic alert, all of which were only offered in XT6’s upper trims in 2021.
Cadillac sells the XT6 in Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trims. Luxury starts with a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine, while the other two trims get a 3.6L V6. A nine-speed transmission and AWD are standard with both engines.
XT6 Luxury comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors with driver’s auto-dimming, front cornering lights, LED headlights, power tailgate, sunroof, and passive keyless entry.
Inside, you get power front seats, eight-speaker audio, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, wireless phone integration, auto-dimming mirror, and three-zone A/C.
Standard safety items include automatic high beams, forward collision mitigation, pedestrian detection, following distance indicator, and front and rear park assist. New for 2022, Luxury trim gets blind spot monitoring, lane change alert, and rear cross-traffic alert.
Sport and Premium Luxury both build on Luxury trim with 20-inch wheels, ventilated front and heated rear seats, hands-free tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, power steering wheel adjustments, and wireless phone charging. Sport also adds Brembo front brakes, real-time damping performance suspension, and a sport AWD system.
To Sport and Premium Luxury, a driver assist package adds adaptive cruise, enhanced forward emergency braking, and reverse emergency braking; a platinum package brings semi-aniline leather, leather dash trim, sueded headliner, and performance suspension; and a tech pack bundles digital gauges, head-up display, surround vision, digital rearview mirror, rear pedestrian alert, and parking assist.
Cadillac’s fuel consumption estimates are 11.2/9.0 L/100 km (city/highway) with the 2.0L turbo engine, and 13.1/9.5 L/100 km for V6-powered models.
