2021 Cadillac XT6 Engine

 The 2021 Cadillac XT6 handles well for a vehicle of its size, has a large cargo hold, and has plenty of passenger space, even in the third row. It also has a slew of features.

2021 Cadillac XT6 Engine

Buyers of the Cadillac  XT6 in 2021 will have a choice between a 237-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or a 310-hp V-6 engine. Both are equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission and are available with front- or all-wheel drive. 

The XT6 is available in three trim levels: Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport, with the first two emphasising comfort and the Sport emphasising performance-enhancing features like a torque-vectoring rear differential and retuned steering. A Platinum package is available, which includes all of the XT6's features. The XT6 looks good in any trim; 20-inch wheels are standard, but 21-inch wheels are available on the Sport model. The handling is adequate for a three-row crossover, but it is no match for the agile CT5-V sedan.

Cadillac XT6 Ride and Handling

While it's difficult to call any three-row SUV sporty, this Cadillac handles well. Body roll is kept under control, and precise steering and powerful brakes help it maintain its poise around turns. The ride is smooth, but larger bumps and dips in the road can make the XT6 feel uneasy. Consider the XT6 Sport for added athleticism, which includes features such as a torque-vectoring rear differential and a specially tuned all-wheel-drive system.
