The 2024 Cadillac XT6 represents the fifth model year of the first generation of Cadillac’s largest crossover, and is scheduled to receive a mid-cycle refresh, with styling revisions and interior updates. Now, GM Authority has exclusively learned when 2024 model-year production of the midsize luxury crossover will kick off.
GM Authority has learned from sources close to the matter that the start of regular production (SORP) of the 2024 Cadillac XT6 is currently scheduled for June 2023.
One of the more recent developments for the Cadillac XT6 was related to the GM Super Cruise (RPO code UKL) expansion. In November 2022, GM Authority reported that GM’s hands-free driving technology was receiving an update that allowed expanded coverage on more than 400,000 miles of roads in North America. Unfortunately, the XT6 was relegated to a much smaller, 20,000-mile update.
For those wondering why the three-row crossover didn’t get the full expansion, the explanation is straightforward. The XT6 wasn’t designed using GM’s Global B software architecture – or Vehicle Intelligence Platform. This means that the mid-size luxury crossover is unable to exploit the full capabilities of the expanded coverage of Super Cruise.
As for powertrain, the 2024 Cadillac XT6 is expected to continue on with the same options as last year. This means two engines are available, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, which is rated at 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, as well as the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. Regardless of engine option, the GM nine-speed automatic transmission is equipped as standard affair, while FWD is standard and AWD is optional.
