Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

7.8

Overall Rating


The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is comfortably priced at $48,990 and is offered with a front-wheel-drive configuration as standard. However, the entire line-up of the 2021 Cadillac XT6 can be equipped with an optional all-wheel-drive system. The new XT6 also gets 3 new exterior colors making a total of 8 different choices.

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is smaller and lighter thanks to its light-weight chassis, and it is far more maneuverable than its elder sibling, the Escalade. The 2021 Cadillac XT6, along with its new standard 2.0L engine, and affordable pricing will have to prove its supremacy against German rivals like Mercedes Benz GLB and Audi Q7, and the Hyundai Palisade.

2021 Cadillac XT6 Pricing and Features

8.0/10

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 now starts at $48,990—nearly $5000 less than last year's starting price—thanks to a new Luxury base trim level and a standard turbo four-cylinder engine. The 2021 Cadillac XT6 will also continue its two trim offerings, namely Premium Luxury and Sport. While the Premium Luxury trim comes with both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive setup, the Sport is committed to just all-wheel-drive for enhanced driving capabilities.

Both the Premium Luxury & Sport trims of 2021 Cadillac XT6, are powered by the same 3.6-liter V6 engine which produces 310 hp and 271 lb-ft. As standard, the 2021 Cadillac XT6 comes equipped with a long list of high-tech features like Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, Onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, Tri-zone automatic climate control, and many more, proving it to be a great value for money.

2021 Cadillac XT6 Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

7.5/10

Cadillac reflects its supremacy in the latest technology and premium quality materials in its vehicle lineup. Preferred by Presidents and celebrities all around the world, Cadillac delivers top-notch offerings that attract big names as well. The build quality is trusted with the President's safety as well. The IIHS and NHTSA have designated many titles for the American vehicle lineup of Cadillac.

There was that awkward period in Cadillac's history, between the mid-90s and early 2000s, where the cars they built were overcomplicated and fragile. In recent times, however, this is no longer the case. Modern Cadillacs are built to incredible standards to compete against their foreign competitors and the three-row 2021 Cadillac XT6 stands true to that very fact. Moreover, with the Cadillac XT6's segment-best warranty coverage, and decent-after-sales market, there's all the more encouraging reason for people to opt for it.

Reliability and Ownership cost

Cadillac manufacturer's exceptionally reliable vehicles are furred up with high-quality materials and beefy engine choices. Furthermore, with the 5-star rated build quality, the vehicles are also highly recognized with the latest gadgets and aesthetic appeal. But due to the recency of the new Cadillac XT6 lineup, the J D Power reports have not yet rated the 2021 XT6. However, because the XT6 shares its platform with the GMC Acadia, we can expect similar J D Power Ratings between the two cars for 2021. But for now, we'll have to let do with the 2020 Cadillac XT6 ratings.

The 2020 Cadillac XT6 scores a respectable 79 out of 100, with an astonishing 86 out of 100 in terms of Dealership Experience. It scores above the Volvo XC90 (76/100) but less than the Buick Enclave (85/100) in its segment. According to the NHTSA, the Cadillac XT6 has also had 1 recalls in the previous year pertaining to the Roof Rail Air Bag not being deployed, and moreover, the IIHS has also designated the 2020 XT6 with the most prestigious Top Safety Pick+ award for the year 2020.

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 will retain the sleek and attractive design language and can be owned at an average price tag of $49,000(luxury trim) across the US. The average annual repair cost for a Cadillac offering is $783, which means the Cadillac XT6 should also have average ownership costs. Although, having said that, as the XT6 is a brand-new offering from the marquee brand, so the ownership expenses incurred by the Cadillac XT6 cannot be disclosed as of yet.

2021 Cadillac XT6's Warranty Coverage

Cadillac offers the most comprehensive warranty-package in the segment. The 2021 Cadillac XT6 will come alongside a 4-year/50,000 miles basic bumper-to-bumper warranty, 6-year/70,000 miles powertrain warranty, and complimentary roadside assistance. It also includes a 4-year/50,000 miles corrosion warranty for the luxury SUV.

Criteria

Period

Limited Warranty

4 Years/ 50,000 miles (whichever comes first)

Powertrain Warranty

6 Years/ 70,000 miles (whichever comes first)

Roadside Assistance

Complimentary for the first visit

Both German rivals offer a 4-year basic powertrain warranty, which is quite less than what Cadillac offers, while the Hyundai Palisade comes with 10-year/100,000 miles powertrain warranty and 5-year/unlimited miles roadside assistance, which is by far the best in the SUV business.

Miles Per Dollar

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is based on the same platform as the GMC Acadia and thus will also have more or less the same Miles Per Dollar figures. As the Acadia can traverse for 3.19 miles for every dollar you spend on it, the 2021 Cadillac XT6 is also expected to deliver more or less close to the 3-miles per dollar figure.

2021 Cadillac XT6 Buying Advice

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is speculated to retain most of the existing features and will add a new, four-cylinder engine choice under the hood. The new engine will add better utility to the luxury SUV, and with SuperCruise being anticipated to be introduced, the 2021 Cadillac XT6 will be a worthy upgrade. The best XT6 for your needs depends on whether you want the Sport's adaptive suspension or prefer the Premium Luxury's chrome styling accents. We say stick with the 2021 Cadillac XT6 Premium Luxury trim, as it's loaded with the latest features and tech and nearly consists of every standard feature on the Sport trim for a lesser price.

Is Buying a used Cadillac XT6 a good idea?

The XT6 was brand new for the 2020 model year, so there are no older models available. We suggest you to go for the 2021 Cadillac XT6, which has already been released and is now available at your nearest Cadillac dealerships. .

2021 Cadillac XT6 Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 retains the same and powerful, naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX engine that pushes out 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of peak torque. As standard, the new XT6 gets a quick 9-speed automatic transmission, that preaches anti-lag characteristics at its best. The power gets conveyed to the front wheels, with optional all-wheel-drive, apart from when you go for the Sport trim, then its the AWD setup all day long.

A new 2.0L turbo-4 headlines the most significant change for the 2021 Cadillac XT6 this year, which is borrowed from the 2021 Cadillac XT4. This new 2.0L Turbocharged powertrain punches out 237-hp, which results in a better economy with the same power proportions. The Cadillac XT6 luxury SUV can tow up to 4,000 pounds, which is not much, but luxury doesn't always promise utility to its best, and that is the exact case with the 2021 XT6.

When it comes to towing capacity, the rivals tow a lot more than the 2021 Cadillac XT6 SUV. The puny Audi Q7 can tow up to a whopping 4,400 pounds, while the Hyundai Palisade does around 4,000 pounds, and the Merc GLB has an amplitude of about 4,400 pounds. Although, when it comes to outright power figures, there is no matching the 2021 Cadillac XT6, as its V6 engine is the most powerful out there.

2021 Cadillac XT6's Acceleration and Braking Performance

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is a mammoth size SUV that weighs around 4,644 lbs, yet the 2.0L I4 engine pushes the 2021 Cadillac XT6 SUV from a standstill to 60 mph in just 7.7 seconds. However, if this feels slow, you will have to opt for the pricier Premium Luxury or Sport trim, and the same beast blasts off to 60 mph in just 7.0 seconds, courtesy of its potent V6 engine.

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is a runner and tops at 132 MPH speed on the tachometer. The braking capabilities make the 2021 XT6 slip to zero from 60 MPH in just about 120 ft. Oddly, the all-wheel-drive system doesn't engage automatically, so you have to switch it manually when you need more traction.

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is one mean machine with its 3.6L V6 engine, yet isn't the fastest luxury SUV pick on the list, as Audi Q7 is a maniac sprinter with a 6.9-second 0-60 MPH sprint. The braking capabilities of the XT6 are impressive, proportioned to heavy gross vehicle weight. In comparison, for the price-point at which it is being offered, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB is a great choice.

How does the 2021 Cadillac XT6 fare on the Ride and Handling front?

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is not just about form and function, it's much more than that. Apart from the new standard 2.0L engine, the other 3.6L V6 engine also provides a hearty acceleration, and it is evident while you have the throttle pressed. The all-wheel-drive system is similar to what the XT4 has, and has to be turned on manually for better traction on surfaces. Taking on corners too at high speeds is a bit troublesome when you are seated in a 2.2 ton SUV.

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 also features four-wheel independent suspension with both the trims, although the adaptive dampers in the Premium Luxury trim seem to try a bit harder to provide you with smooth-riding dynamics, whereas the sports tuned adaptive dampers on the Sports trim provide a much more inspiring handling dynamics. Agility is not one of the more preferred traits of the 2021 Cadillac XT6.

2021 Cadillac XT6 Fuel Economy

7.0/10

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is a luxury SUV that chugs down fuel like a heavy drinker at a bar, but 2021 might change the scenario with a new 2.0L turbocharged engine under the block, that should save a lot of fuel. With the 2.0L turbocharged engine, the 2021 Cadillac XT6 can deliver 21 miles to the gallon in the city and about 27 miles to the gallon out on the highway. But the Cadillac buyers don't often try to save on fuel. Hence a 22 mpg combined average by the 2021 XT6 SUV's V6 engine is enough to bring glee on their faces, and a 19-gallon fuel tank might save them frequent trips to the gas station too.

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 hosts a big 19-gallon fuel tank, which ties its low fuel economy figures to other rivals when on the long stretched range. Audi Q7, on the other hand, even with a lower combined MPG, has a huge 19.8-gallon fuel tank which makes up for all its shortcomings.

2021 Cadillac XT6 Interior

9.0/10

The Cadillacs are quite famous for their extravagant cabin design, and the spacious 2021 Cadillac XT6 is one at the top of the list. Advertised as "obsessively crafted," the cabin can comfortably fill up a 7-passenger squad, with space well divided on all three rows. The second row of the new XT6 can be switched with an optional three-seat bench, which increases the passenger counts. The 2021 Cadillac XT6 seats are very comfortable and come with leather upholstery. The XT6 also features power-adjustable and heated front seat options with the heated steering wheel. While the rear seat heating is optional.

The dashboard of the 2021 Cadillac XT6 is crafted out of authentic wood, carbon-fiber, metals, and semi-aniline leather along with contrast stitching for top-tier luxe appeal. The cabin filters and delivers fresh air with a three-zone climate control system. Other than hauling the crowd, the 2021 Cadillac XT6 SUV can fit 12.6 cu-ft of cargo behind the third row, and once all the seats are folded, the cabin is flat enough to fit 78.7 cu-ft of luggage.

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is one premium runner that fits-in a spacious cabin and appreciates its passengers even in the third row, yet it shows cheaper upholstery fittings when compared to the German rivals like Mercedes and Audi. When it comes to pushing luggage inside, the  Mercedes-Benz GLB is the most generous SUV, with Cadillac being at last.

How’s the 2021 Cadillac XT6's Infotainment System?

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 fits in top-notch gadgets for the occupants. The offerings begin with an 8-inch touchscreen display that pictures high-quality imaging, that supports both Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and SiriusXM. The front touchscreen is supplemented with rotary control for easy access. The rear seats can be engaged with dual 8-inch screens with the same crispier graphics as optional, along with built-in navigation and a DVD player. Six USB ports for charging are hosted for each row, along with a wireless charging pad in the front.

The audiophiles get the standard 8-speaker Bose audio system as standard, which can be upgraded to a 14-speaker Bose setup in the top-tier trims. Other infotainment features include Satellite Radio, Electrochromatic inside rearview mirror, 360-degree camera, a rearview camera, 4.5-inch drivers display, Navigation, and Onboard WiFi. The 2021 Cadillac XT6 might finally introduce the SuperCruise assistance feature in the luxury XT6 SUV which will advance the driver assistance systems.

2021 Cadillac XT6 Exterior

8.0/10

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 gets a crossover skeleton, which is borrowed from Chevy and Buick. The design of the new 2021 XT6 is bold and aggressive and reflects the royal appeal well, which is all the more expected from an expensive top-tier brand. The stance is also intimidating yet luxe and turns heads with the roaring, vicious sound of the V6 and sleek body lines that travel far to the rear end.

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 borrows a lot of cues from other siblings, such as the Escalade and the XT4. The front fascia carries the sleek and slim, aggressive headlights and the signature crest grille that holds the company's emblem. The fake air vents on the sides and below do make the SUV look more stylish. The rear end is clean and minimalistic, the taillights are more towards the corners, and the boxy rear end also gets chrome tip dual exhausts, which adds to its sumptuous appeal.

There are better luxury SUVs available.

There is no easy way to say it but there are far better luxury SUVs available. It lacks in everything be it performance, comfort, or even the technology when compared to its better rivals like Lincoln Aviator. Once Cadillac stood at the pinnacle of American luxury but it has since fallen. GM needs to make some big changes if they want Cadillac to reach the heights and status it once had.
