New Cadillac XT6 Features SiriusXM 360L – Here’s What That Means10
When it launches this spring, the new Cadillac XT6 will boast a feature called SiriusXM 360L into its CUE infotainment system. SiriusXM describes 360L as delivering a 360 degree listening” experience via satellite and streaming with new exciting features and functionality along with a highly-personalized listening experience with more more variety, on-demand audio, and smart content recommendations. That sounds incredible… only that it doesn’t tell us what the service actually does.
So we dug into SiriusXM 360L, and what it will bring to XT6 owners.
As it turns out, 360L delivers combined satellite and streaming features. It features the full lineup of over 200 SiriusXM channels, while also enabling a more personalized experience by providing content recommendations on the vehicle’s infotainment screen based on users’ listening preferences. In other words, you still get the wealth of SiriusXM content, but with a recommendations engine that enables subscribers to get more from their subscription. After all, very few (if anyone) actually knows exactly what each of the 200+ SiriusXM channels are all about.
Jim Cady, Executive Vice President of Products, Operations & Connected Vehicle Services at SiriusXM, is confident that 360L will “revolutionize the way [we] listen to audio in the car”… which might be a stretch, but we’ll take it (for now).
According to SiriusXM, 360L benefits offers up the following benefits:
- Access to over 200 available channels
- Access to thousands of hours of recorded on-demand shows, interviews, and events
- Enhanced sports play-by-play and official broadcasts
- Smart content recommendations
- Dynamic user interface that allows for easy navigation
- Individual listener profiles that allow multiple drivers and passengers to customize favorites
- Profiles can be synced with the listener’s mobile phone to seamlessly access content
Ease Of Use
- Drivers and passengers can use voice to search SiriusXM’s extensive library of content
- Subscribers can manage their account, renew their subscription and contact SiriusXM right on the screen
- Over-the-air updates ensure that SiriusXM will always have the latest features at your fingertips

It would be nice if it plays through the PANARY system but I imagine that’s not available…
I have no idea why the Panaray system is not the top offering in all new Cadillacs. The Bose studio system should be the base system. Having the Panaray would just add to the cache of the vehicles like Burmeister and Naim add to other luxury vehicles.
Because GM cheaped out.
And you’ll be correct.
IIRC It’ll come with the “regular” Bose system as standard & the Bose “Performance” system as an option.
“Sirus XM 360L”, not the best of names…Problem is, this will result in a more expensive monthly fee…
SiriusXM 360 L. I think the 360 is the new monthly price. I had XM from 2006 to 2012, it was pretty good. Then they merged with sirius, and raised The price. And took away all the variety of music, it was the same 40 songs over and over. But the worst thing they did was to put it on auto payment from my card. Without my permission. So I called them to cancel it. So they started to offer me the lower and lower prices they went as low as $25 for six months. I still canceled it. Now I use Apple Music And stitcher.
Sounds like a BMW trim. The all new Sirius XM 360Li xDrive M-Sport.
GM needs to stay away for the fee based radio. And stick to selling cars.
Bet it still sounds like a tin can even on the Bose.
And why would you bet on that? The Bose studio system sounds really good, having tried it myself playing all the latest jams on a three hour-long drive recently in the XT6.
You’d have to be a complete moron or troll to “bet” that a modern-day luxury car will have a sound system that sounds “like a tin can.” Which is it in your case – moron or troll?
