The XT6 is Cadillac's belated three-row luxury midsized SUV.
It's powered by a robust 310-hp, 3.6-liter V6 that is mated to a smooth nine-speed automatic transmission.
Front-wheel drive comes standard; all-wheel drive is optional.
Handling is responsive for a three-row SUV, and the ride is comfortable.
The cabin is quiet and nicely finished and the seats are comfortable.
But the XT6 lacks some luxury features, such as a four-way lumbar support adjustment for the driver's seat and auto-up rear windows.
The infotainment system is relatively easy to use.
The XT6 comes with standard advanced safety technologies, including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and blind spot warning.
Optional features include rear pedestrian warning, reverse automatic emergency braking, and a rear camera mirror. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity is new, and a 2.0-liter turbo engine is the base engine for 2021. For 2022, blind spot warning and rear cross traffic warning are standard on all trims.
