General Motors will introduce a new Brembo performance brake package on the 2022 Cadillac XT6 mid-size crossover.
The new Brembo brake package for the 2022 Cadillac XT6 is tagged with RPO code J56 and includes Brembo front performance brake discs and red-painted front and rear calipers. The brake upgrade package is standard on the 2022 Cadillac XT6 Sport trim level only, building on that model’s performance-oriented nature by providing the crossover with some increased stopping power.
The Cadillac XT6 Sport trim level is set apart from the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims by its gloss black exterior accents, unique Sport front and rear fascia elements, 20-inch alloy wheels, body color door handles and tinted neutral-density taillamp lenses. The XT6 Sport also comes standard with Sport Control AWD, Chassis Damping Control, Performance Suspension with driver select modes and performance-inspired interior appointments like carbon trim and metal Sport pedals.
GM has yet to release complete details on the 2022 Cadillac XT6, however the mid-size crossover is expected to continue with only minor changes to its list of available options. The turbocharged 2.0L LSY four-cylinder engine, which is rated at 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, is expected to remain as the base engine. Premium Luxury and Sport models, meanwhile, will stick with the naturally-aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX engine rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel-drive and a GM nine-speed automatic transmission will be standard, with AWD available at cost.
Pricing for the 2022 Cadillac XT6 has not yet been announced. The crossover will enter production at the GM Spring Hill Assembly plant in Tennesse later this year once production of the 2021 model year XT6 has run its course.
