2022 Cadillac XT6

 If you want a three-row SUV from General Motors' prestige brand, the 2022 Cadillac XT6 is your only option unless you have Escalade money (and space). The XT6 shares many of its mechanical components and underpinnings with the GMC Acadia, but you wouldn't know it by looking at it.

2022 Cadillac XT6

The Cadillac has a distinct exterior and interior design that appears upscale. It is available with either a turbocharged four-cylinder or a naturally aspirated V-6 engine, as well as front- or all-wheel drive. Even though the Sport trim includes a torque-vectoring rear differential, it lacks the athleticism of key competitors such as the Audi Q7 and the BMW X5. The XT6, on the other hand, is better suited for stylish family transport, similar to the Acura MDX and the Lincoln Aviator.

2022 Cadillac XT6 Price

The Cadillac XT6 2022 starts at $48,595. The Cadillac XT6 2022 is a luxury three-row midsize crossover with seating for seven and plenty of cargo space.

2022 Cadillac XT6 Engine

For 2022, XT6 buyers will have a choice between a 237-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and 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. Regardless of trim, the XT6 is a handsome vehicle. Twenty-inch wheels are standard, but the Sport model can be upgraded to 21-inchers. The handling is adequate for a three-row crossover, but it is no match for the agile CT5-V sedan.

2022 Cadillac XT6 Fuel

According to the EPA, the 2022 XT6 with the standard turbo-four will achieve up to 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Models with the V-6 engine can achieve up to 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel-drive XT6 we drove on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route as part of our extensive testing yielded a less rosy 22 mpg. For comparison, the Mercedes-Benz GLE450 we tested on that route received a score of 23.

2022 Cadillac XT6 Interior

Inside, the Cadillac is available in seven- and eight-seat configurations, with either a pair of captain's chairs or a three-seat bench in the second row. All XT6s have a third row that seats three people. When compared to the Audi Q7 or the BMW X5, the XT6's interior trims fall short. Cargo space is also limited, with only three carry-on suitcases allowed. Lowering the back two rows, on the other hand, creates enough space for 31 suitcases. The Q7 has four cases behind its third row but only 25 with the seats folded, so the XT6 is a better choice if you frequently need to transport large and bulky cargo.

Optional features include navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system with a DVD player.
