What's New

Minor tweaks to the 2022 Cadillac XT6 crossover include the introduction of Brembo front brakes and colored brake calipers on Sport models, with 21-inch wheels available. This three-trim range includes two engines familiar from elsewhere in the Cadillac SUV range.

Choosing Your Cadillac XT6

The most affordable route into XT6 ownership involves the Luxury model with a two-liter turbocharged engine that’s exclusive to this trim. It costs $50,415 including destination, and all-wheel drive is a $2,000 upgrade.

Premium Luxury and Sport are only available with a larger 3.6-liter V6 engine, with the former costing $54,740 in FWD mode; AWD-only Sport retails for $60,040.

Engine Choices

The standard XT6 engine is a turbocharged two-liter gas powerplant, generating 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This feeds either the front or all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy stands at an EPA-estimated 21 miles per gallon city, 27 MPG highway, and 22 combined for FWD, versus AWD’s 21/27/23 MPG.

The other XT6 engine is a more powerful 3.6-liter V6 gas unit, which displaces 310 HP and 271 lb-ft of torque. Inevitably, it detracts from the car’s fuel economy of 19/26/21 MPG in two-wheel-drive models, or 18/26/21 MPG as an AWD vehicle.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (City/Highway/Combined)
2.0 turbo235 hp258 lb-ft21/27/22 MPG (FWD), 21/26/23 (AWD)
3.6 V6310 hp271 lb-ft19/26/21 (FWD), 18/25/21 (AWD)

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Cargo capacity for the seven-seater XT6 stands at 12.6 cu ft with the third-row seats in place, and 43.1 cu ft once they’re dropped.

Safety Features

The XT6 protects its occupants with a passenger sensing system and an airbag for each of its seven seats. Driver aids range from automatic emergency braking and forward-collision alerts to front and rear parking sensors, plus an HD rear vision camera. Alerts for rear cross-traffic, lane change, and blind zone feature on every model, as do cruise control and a color driver information center.


Fitted as standard with an eight-speaker Bose sound system and an eight-inch touchscreen system, every XT6 receives satellite radio and 4G WiFi capabilities, plus smartphone mirroring. Premium Luxury buyers receive wireless phone charging, but you’ll have to plunder the options list for a head-up display, a 14-speaker Bose system, or navigation, none of which are available on Luxury models.

XT6 Luxury – MSRP From $50,415

Standard specifications on the most affordable XT6 include six-way power for the front passenger seat and heating elements in both front seats plus memory for the driver.

This complements three-zone climate and automatic lights including intelligent high beam LED headlamps. A leather-wrapped steering wheel complements leatherette seating surfaces, while a power liftgate joins keyless open and remote start on the spec sheet.

There are no packages available on this model.

XT6 Premium Luxury – MSRP From $54,740

Riding on larger 20-inch wheels, Premium Luxury models distinguish themselves externally with a hands-free power liftgate and rain-sensing wipers. The driver gains two-way power lumbar and a heated steering wheel; an alarm and inclination sensor are fitted; the seats benefit from full leather with perforated inserts, and accent lighting quite literally brightens the cabin.

For $2,350, the seven-item Technology Package combines high-end features like a color head-up display, HD surround vision, automatic parking, and a rear camera mirror with an integrated washer. These features also appear in the $5,000 Platinum Pack, alongside semi-aniline leather seating and leather across the cab, navigation, and a 14-speaker Bose audio system, a microfiber suede headliner, and performance suspension with chassis damping control.

XT6 Sport – MSRP From $60,040

Mechanical changes on Sport models include a twin-clutch AWD system, revised performance suspension, heavy-duty cooling, and Brembo front brakes behind diamond-cut 20-inch alloy wheels. Cabin specifications are identical to Premium Luxury.

The Platinum Package’s price drops to $3,850, while the Technology pack remains good value at $2,350.

CarsDirect Tip

Premium Luxury is the sweet spot of the XT6 range, but it’s even more desirable when bundled with the Technology package’s advanced driving aids.

Tale of two Cadillacs. The 2022 Cadillac impresses from the outside with its stunning body that’s sure to grab plenty of stares. Inside, though, things aren’t as gawk-worthy. Add to this a vanilla base four-cylinder engine, and you have a Caddy with some identity issues.

Strong first impression wanes inside. The 2022 Cadillac XT6’s exterior boasts a strong and aggressive look with its upright design, pronounced grille, glaring headlights, and sharp body lines. It truly looks the part of a muscular luxury crossover to rival the BMW X5 or Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class.

Inside, the Cadillac falls relatively flat, failing to make good on its executive exterior. Instead, the interior feels far more middle management with its soft curves, simple color schemes, and basic setup. It’s nice, but a big downgrade from what the body offers.

Plus, the seats, even in their top-of-the-line semi-aniline covering, feel less luxurious than non-luxury rivals like the Hyundai Palisade or Kia Telluride.

V6 is worth the upgrade. The base 2022 Cadillac XT6 has all the features one would expect, including an eight-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, and more. The only downside is it comes standard with the 237-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

It’s well worth the small price to upgrade to the Premium Luxury trim, which includes the 310-hp V6, real leather upholstery, power-folding third-row seats, and more.

The Aviator, X5, and Hyundai Palisade all come with potent V6 engines, leaving the XT6 in their collective dust.

Cadillac XT6

Roomy cabin, sans the third row. The 2022 Cadillac XT6 has a roomy first and second row of seats, but the third row gets very tight with just 29.5 inches of legroom. This falls far behind nearly every competitor other than the Aviator’s 29.2 inches.

Buyers seeking a more functional third row will find 33.5 inches in the Buick Enclave and 31.4 inches in the Hyundai Palisade.

The XT6’s third row also squishes the cargo room to just 12.6 cubic feet. The closest competitor to this is the Hyundai Palisade with 18 cubic feet. Buyers who want a third row with cargo room can get 23.6 cubes in the Enclave and 22.6 cubes in the Aviator.

Fold-down the XT6’s rear seats, and its cargo area grows to a more respectable 43.1 cubes to the second row and 78.7 cubes behind the first row. This is still well behind the Enclave, but it’s about in line with the other competitors.

Final thoughts. Buyers seeking a unique outward appearance from their luxury SUV will find this in the 2022 Cadillac XT6. Sadly, this powerful look is all for show as its interior and base four-cylinder engine leave us desiring a lot.

Buyers seeking a sleeker interior will find this in the GLE-Class or Hyundai Palisade. Plus, these models include much more base power.
