Overview

The 2020 Cadillac XT6 is the brand's latest addition to their crossover lineup. It features three rows and a seven-passenger capacity, but it's different than the Escalade in that it emphasizes efficiency and interior space rather than hauling duties.

What's New for 2020

The Cadillac XT6 is an all-new model for 2020 that offers two distinct trims that cater to either comfort-focused or sport-minded customers.

Choosing Your Cadillac XT6

All Cadillac XT6 models are powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission that develops 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. It features start/stop technology and active fuel management which cuts fuel to specific cylinders. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is available for $2,000 or standard on the Sport model. The AWD system features internal clutches to transfer torque to a specific side as needed.

The XT6 earns an EPA-estimated 18 miles per gallon city, 25 mpg highway, and 20 combined with front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive takes a minimal toll on overall efficiency, dropping the XT6's ratings to a middle-of-the-pack 17/24/20 mpg (city/highway/combined).

The Cadillac XT6 has far fewer configurations available compared to its competition. It's only available in two trims:

Cadillac XT6

Premium Luxury

The XT6 Premium Luxury starts at $53,690 (all prices include the $995 destination fee). Bright chrome trim and 20-inch polished wheels dress up the exterior.

Beyond the chrome, the XT6 includes LED headlights, heated mirrors with integrated turn signals and auto-dimming for the driver’s side, proximity entry, an acoustic-laminated windshield, remote engine start, and a hands-free power tailgate.

The long list of notable standard features extends inside with an eight-speaker Bose audio system, a large dual-pane sunroof, and a new controller design for the latest infotainment system that's displayed on the 8-inch touchscreen. It interfaces with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and has XM capability.

The base trim also includes perforated and heated leather seats, a heated leather steering wheel, wireless charging, and two USB ports for each row. The second-row seats slide and fold forward for easier access to the third row, which can be tucked away with the push of a button. Split captains chairs are available for $800.

The standard active safety features include automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

The Comfort and Air Quality Package ($750) brings ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, and an air ionizer. The Enhanced Visibility and Technology Package ($2,350) bundles a head-up display, an 8-inch driver information display, a surround-view camera system, park assist, rear pedestrian alert, and a rear camera mirror washer.

Ticking the box for the Enhanced Visibility and Technology Package also unlocks the ability to select the Driver Assist Package ($1,300), which includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and automatic seat belt tightening.

With all three of the aforementioned packages selected, buyers can finally check the box for the Platinum Package ($4,900). It adds leather to all rows of seating, the door trim, the instrument panel, and the center console, suede headliner, carpeted floor mats, a performance suspension, chassis damping control, and the choice between two unique interior color schemes.

To protect the inside, the Interior Protection Package ($360) adds all-weather floor mats and a cargo tray, while the Floor Liner Package ($405) brings all-weather floor liner to all rows and a cargo tray.

Cadillac XT6

Sport

The XT6 Sport trim starts at $58,090 and trades the chrome for gloss black on the exterior grille, window trim, and roof rails, while the door handles are painted to match the body. The front and rear lower fascia are unique to the Sport as are the tail lights which have clear lenses.

Inside, carbon fiber garnishes are a sporting touch. New to the options list are bright colored diamond-cut 21-inch wheels for $1,000.

Since several features are already included standard, like the active dampers and sport suspension, the price of the Platinum Package is a hair lower than on the Premium Luxury trim. It now costs $3,700, but selecting it still requires first adding the Enhanced Visibility and Technology Package, the Driver Assist Package, and the Comfort and Air Quality Package, which all cost the same as on the Premium Luxury.

The remaining option packages follow suit in price and features.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2020 Cadillac XT6 fulfills the seven-passenger crossover gap that existed in Cadillac’s lineup. An AWD Premium Luxury trim with the Driver Assist Package, Enhanced Visibility and Technology Package, navigation (which also brings along a 14-speaker Bose audio system) has an out-the-door-price of just over $60,000, which undercuts several European competitors.

Three rows without the bulk. The 2020 model year is when Cadillac finally gets competitive in the three-row luxury crossover movement with the Chevrolet Traverse-derived XT6.

The all-new 2020 Cadillac XT6 finds a nice spot for itself between the compact Cadillac XT4 and the hulking Cadillac Escalade, giving buyers seating for up to seven without moving into a land yacht and tons of premium materials and features to go with it.

Is this enough to set the XT6 apart in a crowded segment? Continue reading to find out.

Smooth powertrain that lacks any “wow” moments. The Cadillac XT6 turns its nose up at the thought of turbocharged four-cylinder base engines with its standard 3.6-liter V6.

As one of General Motors’ most used engines, this V6 offers no performance surprises, but it delivers smooth acceleration thanks to its 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. This output bests the Acura MDX by 20 hp and the Volvo XC90 T5 by 60 hp.

Mated to this smooth V6 engine is a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. While many of these higher-gear-count automatic transmissions have a tendency to hunt for the right gear in city driving, the XT6’s nine-speed unit goes completely unnoticed in the best way possible.

This all adds up to a comfortable ride that offends no one, but the XT6 fails to deliver any real excitement when the pedal hits the carpet.


Cadillac XT6

Spacious, comfy cabin with a forgettable third row. Inside, the Cadillac XT6 must deliver optimal comfort and quietness to separate itself from the crowded luxury crossover segment. It does just that – in its front two rows, at least – with well-padded front seats that offer just enough lateral support and plenty of adjustments for all passenger sizes.

The second-row seats are available as a single bench or a pair of captain’s chairs, and the latter offer just as much comfort as the front thrones. Plus, taller second-row riders won’t feel the squeeze with up to 39.1 inches of leg room, which beats the XC90 by 2.1 inches and the MDX by 0.6 inches. Sadly, we cannot say the same for the third row, which offers just 29.5 inches of leg room, making it a child-only row.

Making the third row even more expendable is the tight 12.6 cubic feet of cargo room it leaves when upright. This is tighter than a trunk in most compact sedans and falls 3.2 cubes short of the XC90 and MDX.

With the third row folded, this expands to a more useful 43.1 cubes, which beats the XC90 by 1.3 cubes. Your best bet is to forget there is a third row, except in emergencies, and leave it folded the majority of the time.

Cadillac threw all the features at the base XT6. When it comes to standard features, Cadillac threw everything, including the kitchen sink, at the base XT6.

Its long list of standard features includes 20-inch wheels, a hands-free power tailgate, 4G LTE wi-fi, eight-way power front seats, an automatic heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, six USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

This matches it up nicely against its two biggest competitors, the MDX and XC90. In fact, it even gets the better of these two with its standard wi-fi, mini-perforated leather seating, wireless charging, and plethora of USB ports, but it rings in at a much higher price of $53,690 (destination fees included) — $4,995 more than the XC90 and $8,295 more than the MDX.

Final thoughts. The 2020 Cadillac XT6 does a great job flying in the face of its key competitors with a potent V6 engine, a massive list of standard features, roomy and comfortable seating, and all the standard safety features a family will need.

However, its price tag is outrageous relative to the MDX and XC90 without offering significantly more features. The smooth ride may be worth the extra cash, but that requires serious test driving before making the commitment.

Buyers who plan to use the third-row seats with some regularity will likely find the XT6’s seats way too tight. These buyers would prefer the 31.9 inches of leg room in the XC90. The XC90 also delivers more inspiring straight-line performance with its 400-hp T8 plug-in hybrid powertrain.
