We’re spending the week with the 2020 Cadillac XT6, a new three-row crossover positioned between the XT5 and the Escalade in the brand’s product lineup. The XT6 rides on the GM C1 platform and is powered by the 3.6L LGX V6 engine rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. This engine is mated to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission, driving either the front or all four wheels.
Following Cadillac’s Y trim level strategy, The XT6 is available in one of two different trim levels, Premium Luxury and Sport. Our test unit is equipped with the Sport trim, which includes all-wheel drive. It costs $2,400 more than the Premium Luxury AWD variant and features the following items:
- Gloss Black exterior accents (grille, roof rails, side window surrounds)
- Sport Control AWD System
- Unique front and rear fascia elements
- Trim-specific 20-inch 12-spoke alloy wheels
- Carbon fiber interior trim
- Sport pedals and tap-up/-down paddle shifters
- Chassis Damping Control
- Tinted taillights
- Body-color door handles
Our 2020 Cadillac XT6 is covered in the optional Crystal White Tricoat paint ($1,225) and fitted with the Jet Black leather interior. It also includes the Platinum package ($3,700) which adds Semi-Aniline leather seating for all rows, leather-wrapped instrument panel, console and door trim, a microfiber sueded headliner, and Bronze Carbon Fibre trim with Ombre finish.
The Platinum package requires choosing the Enhanced Visibility and Technology package ($2,350) that rounds up a Rear Camera Mirror with lens washer, an eight-inch infotainment screen, and automatic parking assist with braking, head-up display, HD Surround Vision and Rear Pedestrian Alert. It also imposes the Driver Assist Package ($1,300) which includes adaptive cruise control, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking and Reverse Automatic Braking, along with the Comfort and Air Quality Package ($750) that adds heated rear seats and ventilated front seats as well as an air ionizer, and a 14-speaker Bose Performance Series sound system ($1,000).
This is essentially the most expensive and complete package that’s available for this vehicle, bringing the XT6 Sport’s sticker price from the base MSRP of $58,090 up to $69,190.
