The XT6 may not have been around for very long but it’s already established itself as one of the best and most desirable three-row crossover SUVs in the market. As well as its sharp styling, luxurious interior and loads of the latest tech, the 2021 Cadillac XT6 also boasts almost faultless safety credentials. The recipe for the success of the XT6 is fairly straightforward. Take the increasingly popular midsize crossover SUV format and just give buyers everything they want and more.
When we get to this level in any segment of the auto market we expect a lot and the Cadillac XT6 more than delivers. Because a luxury vehicle like this has to come with an extensive list of standard features and equipment to be competitive there’s no need for a vast number of different trim levels. That’s why there are just three trim levels in the 2021 XT6 lineup, but they do still manage to present a trio of distinct choices for buyers.
The entry-level model in the family is the XT6 is the appropriately named Luxury trim level, the mid-range offering is the Premium Luxury, and the range-topping version of this three-row luxury SUV is the XT6 Sport. Whichever trim level you go for, however, you’re always getting a big helping of that unmistakable Cadillac styling that sets the company’s models apart from anything else on the road.
One of the biggest changes to the XT6 for the new model year is the introduction of a new turbo-four engine option which has been borrowed from other crossovers in the current Cadillac lineup. This 2.0-liter turbo-four produces 237 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque which is sent to the rear wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission. There is no AWD option for this engine and it’s the standard unit in the entry-level Luxury model.
Go beyond the base model and your XT6 will then be upgraded to the 3.6-liter V-6 which then puts 310 horsepower and 271 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal. This engine also uses a nine-speed automatic transmission but it can also be upgraded to AWD in Premium Luxury trim.
The range-topping XT6 Sport also comes with the 3.6-liter V-6 engine but in this case it’s standard all-wheel-drive so there’s no front-drive XT6 Sport variant.
Because the XT6 sticks with six or seven-seats instead of going for eight-seat capacity like some related GM models there’s an impressive amount of room inside for both passengers and cargo.
Base versions of the XT6 make a good case for themselves and could attract new buyers to the brand with an impressive roster of standard equipment as well as attractive starting prices. Standard features include an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 18-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable heated front seats, six USB ports, a sunroof, wireless smartphone compatibility, a power liftgate, HD rear vision camera and synthetic leather upholstery.
As well as an upgrade to real leather upholstery, 20-inch alloys and a power-folding third-row seat, the mid-range Premium Luxury also offers buyers more options to tailor the XT6 to their specific needs.
Sport models are a similar standard specification to the Premium Luxury but live up to their name with the addition of features like standard all-wheel drive, a sport suspension and adaptive dampers.
It’s hard to find fault with the 2021 Cadillac XT6 in any of its three trim levels, especially as it excels in the area of safety to such an extent that it now boasts coveted IIHS Top Safety Pick+ status that not too many rivals can match.
