What Is the 2021 Cadillac XT6?

New last year, the Cadillac XT6 is a three-row mid-size luxury SUV that seats six or seven people, depending on the configuration. It’s offered with front- or all-wheel drive, and engine choices include a standard 237-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that’s new this year or an available 310-hp, 3.6-liter V-6. Both engines pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission, and competitors include the Lincoln Aviator and Acura MDX

What’s New on the 2021 Cadillac XT6? 

The XT6 has a few significant changes for 2021. A new Luxury trim level becomes the base model, slotting below the Premium Luxury and Sport models, and it’s powered by the new turbo four-cylinder engine. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is also new.

What Features in the 2021 Cadillac XT6 Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot (data trial included)
  • Remote start
  • Power liftgate

  • Wireless charging
  • Power-folding third row
  • Blind spot warning
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Head-up display

  • 360-degree camera system
  • Night vision

Should I Buy the 2021 Cadillac XT6?

The XT6 has a roomy and quiet interior, and there’s good cargo space when the small third row is folded. The interior is luxurious, but it lacks the style offered by the Aviator.

Love this Car

One of the best cars I've ever owned.... stylish, elegant, comfortable and plenty of room . My only complaints..it doesn't come in red and with gas prices hovering at $5.00 per gallon it's getting a little pricey to operate. And NO all electric cars are not the answer at this time..they are too expensive for most people and the USA does not have the nationwide charging stations needed to operate electric cars!!!!


somewhat overall a slight disappointment

For a modern day car with all the technology we have today in a premium luxery vehicle, it has no cd player, the gps on my phone works better than this and radio doesnt pick up good


This is the best driving car I have owned.

The XT6 is the perfect family vehicle. All passenger have plenty of leg room, drink holders and power outlets. The exterior is very stylish and we get many compliments each day.
