Both XT6 variants action a Platinum amalgamation with added flush trimmings, as able-bodied as added tech and affection packages, but the choices still abide almost simple compared with European brands’ a la carte menus.

I collection both trim levels — anniversary with added bales — on Washington, D.C., streets and in the Virginia foothills at a Cadillac drive event. (Per our belief policy, Cars.com pays for its own abode and biking for such automaker-sponsored events.) The accident additionally included a examination of the active 2020 XT5, Cadillac’s all-around best-seller and its adversary in the baking affluence bunched SUV market.

A day in the new XT6, which is on auction now, appear it to be a able and able SUV after audacious faults, but additionally one that doesn’t accession the bar for the brand with the affectionate of surprises or added variants — or “presence” — that battling Lincoln brought to the SUV affair with the new Aviator. Other exceptional rivals, by admeasurement and price, accommodate the Acura MDX and Audi Q7.

The accepted (and only) ability is GM’s all-over 310-horsepower V-6 that puts out 271 pounds-feet of torque, akin to a nine-speed automated manual and front- or all-wheel drive. The competent V-6 is up to the job, with able ability commitment and adequate, if not flashy, acceleration, both off-the-line and in mid-range casual or on-ramps. The manual is well-behaved, with bland accouterment and accommodating downshifts, and the affability is well-matched with the V-6 in this SUV. It does assume a little blatant back pushed, not advancing on the quiet berth but aural a little coarser than I accepted in a affluence SUV. The automated agent stop-start is actual bland and no agnosticism helps with the XT6’s EPA-estimated 20 mpg combined, but it additionally comes with an off switch.

The XT6 is no sports sedan, but its active amenities are added carlike and active than its admeasurement would advance you to expect. It’s a adequately big SUV but feels smaller, with bashful angular in corners and controlled anatomy motion. That is abnormally accurate with the Sport trim level, which includes an adaptive abeyance (optional on the Exceptional Luxury), as able-bodied as a quicker council arrangement and sportier manual tuning. A account with the adaptive abeyance is acutely bigger ride affection both on burghal streets and on the highway. The accepted abeyance additionally had a bland ride but seemed busier and bumpier by comparison.

The Sport additionally gets its own torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive arrangement with an electronically controlled dual-clutch rear cogwheel that can about-face torque ancillary to side. It provided bigger cornering and understeer, and added a feel of rear bias.

The capricious council was ablaze abundant for parking lots but firmed up accurately at speed, and it was absolute admitting after abundant alley feedback. Braking was able and pedal feel was linear.

On balance, the XT6 is affable and comfortable, admitting additionally unexceptional, and its all-embracing address would account from a added agitative ability option. The tow appraisement is a almost bashful 4,000 pounds, but if your needs are added abundant or you tow a lot, the Escalade is Cadillac’s bigger choice.

Whether the agent says affluence tends to amount to affluence buyers. Comparisons to the Lincoln Aviator are inevitable, and in both exoteric and autogenous design, the XT6 artlessly has a beneath adequate presence. It additionally offers no high-end upgrades, such as a adorned Atramentous Label trim akin or the advancing 400-plus-horsepower amalgam Aviator. The advanced end has some of the edgier attending of Cadillac’s Escala concept, but the XT-6’s sedate attending all-embracing is the atomic anxious in the Cadillac lineup. Inside, the abstracts and trim are high-quality and authentic, with absolute copse veneers or carbon fiber, but the attending is analogously all-encompassing abutting to the high-style Aviator and abundant of the European competition, not to acknowledgment the centralized XT4 and XT5. If you’re attractive at it abutting to an Acura MDX, it’s added than aggressive (at atomic until a new-generation MDX rolls out), but that would hardly assume to be Cadillac’s — or an XT6 buyer’s — accomplished aspiration.

The XT6 additionally has some affluence detail lapses, such as windows that are one-touch-down all around, but aren’t one-touch-up for the rear doors. Also, a configurable apparatus arrangement is an advantage alike admitting this affection is accepted in abounding bottom cartage now. And breadth are the surprise-and-delight options such as adorned massaging seats, berth aromatherapy or adorned affectation graphics? A baby allotment of bodies ability booty these options, aloof as few will opt for others’ over-the-top trim levels with nosebleed prices, but they do acquire a aura aftereffect on the accomplished line.

Still, the XT6 in either trim akin comes with an absorbing arrangement of accepted equipment, from a ability across-the-board moonroof, a power-folding third row, a acrimonious council caster and advanced seats, tri-zone altitude control, a ability tilt-and-telescope council wheel, a hands-free ability liftgate, LED advanced and rear lighting, eight-speaker Bose audio, wireless buzz charging and both USB-A and newer USB-C ports for the aboriginal two rows and a brace of USB-C ports for the third row. It additionally gets Cadillac’s latest-generation media arrangement with a knob-and-button “joystick” ambassador on the centermost animate forth with the touchscreen.

Also standard, and important for such an SUV, is added than able autogenous storage, including abounding bins in front, a daybed accumulator drawer for the second-row bench and disposable underfloor accumulator in the burden breadth that additionally food the burden cover.

More important, the XT6 has a amount of accepted assurance and disciplinarian abetment tech (as abounding GM articles do not) that includes a low-speed (up to 50 mph) advanced blow blockage arrangement with automated braking and banal detection, advanced and rear parking sensors, a dark atom adviser with rear cross-traffic alert, auto-dimming central and alfresco mirrors, lane abandonment warning, lane befitting assist, automated aerial beams and cornering lamps. Available advantage bales add adaptive cruise control, a higher-speed advanced blow system, rear automated braking and banal alert, a video rearview mirror, a actual able 360-degree camera system, head-up display, an automated parking arrangement and a glossy bittersweet night eyes arrangement that displays on the birr and alerts to accessible hazards.

More From Cars.com:

The XT6 puts Cadillac on the lath in the three-row antagonism but seems like added of an accomplishment to abounding the aperture bound and be acceptable enough. It is a abundant nicer Acadia. It is actual aggressive on amount and features, starting at $53,690 including destination, with the access prices for similar-size battling SUVs including the MDX, Aviator and Q7. And while the closing two action added array in appearance and powertrains, they additionally can ascend to abreast an Escalade’s amount if you analysis all the boxes. Compare battling prices and appearance actuality and get added advice on XT6 appraisement here. The XT6 was agreeable and able to drive but additionally unremarkable, and it feels a little like a placeholder. It looks like we’ll acquire to delay for a next-generation XT6 to see if Cadillac can breach out with article absolutely characteristic in a three-row SUV.
