The online configurator tool for the 2022 Cadillac XT6 has officially gone live on the luxury automaker’s website, allowing users to customize their own version of the mid-size three-row crossover.
We visited Cadillac.com and experimented with the newly launched configurator ourselves, creating the 2022 Cadillac XT6 seen here. Our example car is a Sport trim level, which unfortunately has late availability for the 2022MY. It’s finished in the new Rosewood Metallic exterior color and has the optional Cirrus leather interior upholstery color with mini-perforated inserts. We also enhanced the exterior appearance of the vehicle a bit with the available Onyx Package, which adds various gloss black exterior parts, including a gloss black grille, bodyside moldings, front fascia applique, rear license plate applique and exhaust bezels, along with 20-inch gloss black painted wheels.
Our example vehicle is also equipped with the optional Technology Package, which adds an eight-inch Driver Information Center display, a color Head-Up Display, HD Surround Vision, a Surround Vision Recorder, a Rear Camera Mirror with washer, Rear Pedestrian Alert and Automatic Parking Assist with braking. Completing the package is the Driver Assist Package, which adds Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Seat Belt Tightening, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking and Reverse Automatic Braking. It’s worth pointing out that our example vehicle would not come equipped with wireless phone charging, the configurator indicates, due to the global semiconductor shortage.
The 2022 Cadillac XT6 offers the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine as standard, which is rated at 235 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. The naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine is also offered and is rated at 310 horsepower at 6,700 rpm and 271 pound-feet of torque at 5,000 rpm. Both engines will mate to a GM nine-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive.
