It’s worth noting that General Motors has not made any changes or revisions to the 2021 Cadillac XT6 to make it more efficient. Instead, the EPA has revised its fuel economy ratings for the crossover, resulting in slightly improved numbers.
The 2021 Cadillac XT6 comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0L LSY I4 engine, however this entry-level engine was not offered on the 2020 model year XT6, so the year-over-year fuel efficiency changes only apply to V6 models. The 2.0L engine produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and comes paired with the GM nine-speed automatic transmission. The turbo four is the more efficient engine option in the crossover, carrying a fuel economy rating of 23 mpg combined with both FWD and AWD.
Pricing for the 2021 Cadillac XT6 starts at $48,990 including destination for the Luxury trim level with the 2.0L LSY engine and FWD. Production takes place at the GM Spring Hill Assembly plant in Tennessee.
