Status: New for 2020 - Cadillac is adding another utility vehicle to its portfolio, but technically it's not completely new since the XT6's platform originates with the GMC Acadia and Cadillac XT5. The standard 3.6-liter V-6 is commonplaces in the General Motors fleet. It works with a nine-speed automatic transmission that directs torque to the front, or, optionally, all four wheels. The XT6 is skinned in new (and quite attractive) sheetmetal that looks less squared-off than that of many competitors, especially from the front. The CT6 also appears similar to the XT5, albeit on a larger scale. With three rows of seats, the XT6 can accommodate up to seven passengers (six, if the second-row chairs are selected). That's one less passenger than the bigger and bolder Cadillac Escalade can transport, but the base price is also about $20,000 less. The starting-point XT6 Premium Luxury trim comes with tri-zone climate control, leather upholstery, power liftgate, power-folding third-row seats, panoramic sunroof and an eight-speaker Bose audio system. Along with AWD (optional with the Premium Luxury), the XT6 Sport adds active (constantly adjusting) sport-tuned suspension, uniquely designed wheels and premium interior/exterior trim.
