Verdict 5.6 / 10

We’ve agitated affluence of ink criticizing Cadillac added contempo products, like the CT4 and CT5 sedans in particular, so we accepted to be appropriately aghast jumping abaft the caster of the 2021 Cadillac XT6 crossover. But to our surprise, the XT6 isn’t all that bad. Cadillac absolutely congenital a solid three-row that drives well, is abundantly comfortable, and has some acceptable assurance tech.

But aback comparing it to alternatives from companies like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Volvo, the XT6 feels like it’s bristles years abaft the advancing set. The Cadillac doesn’t attending all that interesting, it has a tiny awning and poor ammunition abridgement comparatively, and costs an cool $72,000 as tested. Cadillac needs to do way added to argue us that the XT6 is account that affectionate of money.

Architecture ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 4/10

The Cadillac XT6 has some adorable details. The three-row gets the aforementioned cone-shaped edges and adamantine angles as added avant-garde Caddies, and wears the brand’s new front-end architecture actual well. The abbreviate headlights, ample five-sided grille, and vertical LED accents allow the XT6 a adventurous attending head-on, and our Sport tester ups the ante with accepted 20-inch auto (21-inchers are optional) and blacked-out trim on the window surrounds and grille. That said, there’s annihilation absolutely adorable about this Cadillac, either.

The contour of the XT6 is all-encompassing and blends into a forgettable rear end. The angular taillights attending like transplants from the crossover’s auto siblings, and a distinct chrome emphasis allotment runs the breadth of the cossack lid. The XT6 artlessly fails to angle out visually in a chic with abundant bolder options.

The aforementioned is accurate of the autogenous – the administration is apple-pie and aggregate is able-bodied laid-out, but it’s unremarkable. There’s a distinct apartment in the centermost animate for the aggregate knob, infotainment controller, and quick-access buttons, which makes abyssal the anchored 8.0-inch touchscreen a cinch. The dash, seats, and council caster abrasion a nice atramentous covering with attenuate emphasis stitching, and our tester has carbon cilia accents on the council caster and throughout the cockpit as allotment of the Sport package.

Comfort ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 7/10

Even with big ol’ 21-inch auto (a $1,000 advantage aloft the Sport trim) and rubber-band attenuate tires, the Cadillac XT6 has a actual nice ride. The continuously adaptive dampers – accepted on our tester – accomplish the crossover feel cottony bland on the artery and tolerable over alike the best amiss pavement. Alive the drive approach selector to Sport does anneal up the abeyance some for bigger handling, but not badly so. Not alone does the XT6 accept a nice ride, but it’s additionally acutely well-insulated – talking to your commuter alone takes a whisper. Alone aback you bang the 3.6-liter V6 does it accomplish its attendance known.

The atramentous covering buckets up avant-garde are bendable to sit on, but action bound bolstering and abridgement support. And while acrimonious functionality comes standard, blast is alone accessible as an advantage on the $750 Comfort and Air Quality package. We aspect those aforementioned qualities to the second-row captain’s chairs, which attending nice but aren’t the best luxurious. The captain’s chairs (as with the bench) don’t accept an cyberbanking sliding action either, which agency you accept to cull a tab on the accept and boost the bench avant-garde for third-row access.

Once in the third row, the XT6 has the best allowance in the chic – a solid 37.2 inches. That beats the next-best Volvo XC90 by about an inch. Unfortunately, legroom leaves article to be desired. The XT6’s 29.5 inches of legroom are amid the affliction abstracts in the class.

Technology & Connectivity ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 6/10

The alone aloft advise adjoin the XT6 in the tech administration is the tiny 8.0-inch touchscreen – which costs an added $1,000 with navigation. Compared to the abundant beyond and abundant nicer 12.3-inch screens offered in the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE, this one feels puny.

Other than that, the XT6 has the latest GM infotainment interface, which is crisp, clear, and almost accessible to use acknowledgment to color-coordinated icons. And things like wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as able-bodied as Wi-Fi connectivity, appear accepted – not alike BMW and Mercedes action all of those out of the box.

By alive the Enhanced Visibility and Technology Amalgamation advantage ($2,350), our tester additionally gets an 8.0-inch awning in the apparatus array – alms readouts for things like audio, ammunition economy, and added – as able-bodied as a configurable head-up affectation and a rearview mirror camera. Admitting it’s not the clearest, the rearview mirror camera does advice with dark spots aback abetment up this big SUV.

Performance & Administration ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 6/10

A turbocharged 2.0-liter agent comes accepted on the XT6, acceptable for 237 application and 258 pound-feet, but our tester gets the peppier 3.6-liter V6, which comes accepted on the Exceptional Affluence and Sport models. This agent produces a bashful 310 hp and 276 lb-ft, baffled through a nine-speed automated to an alternative all-wheel-drive arrangement – front-drive is standard.

The XT6 isn’t what we’d alarm fast; this Caddy does able-bodied dabbling about at a bashful clip with aloof abundant action for artery passes and quick overtaking in the city. If you about-face the drive approach punch to Sport and bang the throttle, the XT6 will move a bit added hurriedly, but not after whining beef from the engine. The V6 doesn’t feel badly able compared to some of the alternatives, but the ample 4,690-pound barrier weight apparently doesn’t advice its cause.

Dynamically, though, we absolutely like the way the XT6 Sport moves. The council has a nice beefy feel, the abeyance reacts able-bodied to advancing inputs, and there’s not anywhere abreast as abundant anatomy cycle as you get on some of the alternatives. This archetypal does accept a few trim-specific engineering tweaks to accomplish it feel added dynamic, like a tighter 15.1:1 council arrangement that replaces the Exceptional Affluence trim’s 16.1:1 gearing, accepted adaptive dampers, and altered burke and manual mapping. The end aftereffect is a crossover that absolutely feels appealing alive – or, as alive as a big three-row can be.

Assurance ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 8/10

The XT6 comes with a cardinal of acceptable assurance appearance out of the box, including automated emergency braking, cruise ascendancy with ambit assist, lane-keep assist, cross-traffic alert, and a few more. But if you appetite things like adaptive cruise ascendancy with braking bottomward to zero, accelerated automated emergency braking, and rear automated emergency braking, that will set you aback an added $1,300 as allotment of the Driver Abetment package.

Our tester did accept that box ticked (plus a chic $2,000 Night Eyes package) and it works actual able-bodied on the highway. The adaptive cruise ascendancy with ambit ascendancy and lane-centering tech is actual intuitive. It keeps the XT6 doesn’t ping-ping in the lane and stays at a abiding clip to the car in avant-garde of it after adamantine braking.

But we can’t advice agitate the actuality that, while yes, the Driver Abetment amalgamation is appealing good, Cadillac does not action its avant-garde Super Cruise alive assurance arrangement on the XT6. On a $70,000-plus affluence crossover, that should at atomic be an option.

Ammunition Abridgement ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 4/10

The abject Cadillac XT6 with a four-cylinder turbo and front-wheel drive gets a solid 23 afar per gallon combined. But abacus all-wheel drive and a artlessly aspirated V6, like on our tester, drops the ammunition abridgement to a less-than-stellar 18 afar per gallon city, 25 highway, and 20 combined. That’s able-bodied beneath boilerplate compared to the advancing set.

Consider this: The anachronous Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60 with all-wheel drive and a six-cylinder agent accomplish 22 mpg combined, as does the BMW X5 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE with the aforementioned setup. All-wheel-drive versions of the Volvo XC90 and the Lexus RX L, meanwhile, get 21 mpg combined. Alone the Audi Q7 is worse than the Cadillac, accomplishing aloof 18 mpg combined.

Pricing ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 4/10

How abundant does it amount to get into this thirsty, mild, faux-lux crossover? While the Cadillac XT6 starts at a actual reasonable $47,995, our tester comes in at $72,165 post-options. Ouch.

From there, all-wheel drive is a $2,000 extra, while opting for the Sport archetypal is a $7,200 exceptional aloft that. Options on our car accommodate the $3,700 Platinum package, the $2,350 Avant-garde Visibility package, $2,000 for night vision, $1,300 for the Driver Abetment package, and a few added appearance that accompany the absolute in account to a whopping $13,975 (not including $995 for destination and administration fees).

So while it may be one of the added affordable players in the chic with a abject amount that undercuts best alternatives, save the QX60 and MDX, the Cadillac XT6 does get acutely cher depending on options and trims.
