The XT6 is a luxury three-row SUV that’s positioned to rival premium models such as the Audi Q7 and Lexus RX L. But this inviting vehicle comes up a bit short. The XT6 lacks some features that buyers might expect in a luxury SUV, and it has disappointing fuel economy. Cadillac’s poor brand reliability also hurts the vehicle’s Overall Score. We found it to be a pleasant companion for commuting and road trips.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.

We include a prediction for a model that is new or has been redesigned, based on its reliability history or the manufacturer’s track record.
