Overview 2024 Cadillac XT6
Think of the Cadillac XT6 as the SUV that bridges the gap between the compact XT4 and XT5 and the full-sized Escalade. Similar to the Escalade, the XT6 features three rows of seats, but it has a more compact exterior and uses a unibody architecture, resulting in better handling and maneuverability in tight spaces.
The XT6 can seat seven people, although adults in the third row may feel cramped. The XT6 sports the same familial Cadillac SUV styling, making it resemble a lighter and sleeker version of the Escalade. Unfortunately, the interior materials do not live up to the stylish exterior design.
Exterior Design of the 2024 Cadillac XT6
The exterior of the 2024 Cadillac XT6 is a perfect blend of elegance and athleticism. With its bold lines, sculpted body, and signature Cadillac grille, this SUV exudes confidence on the road. The LED headlights and taillights add a touch of modernity to the overall design, while the available 20-inch wheels give it a commanding presence.
Inside the cabin, the XT6 offers a spacious and luxurious environment. Premium materials such as leather upholstery, wood accents, and brushed aluminum trim are used throughout, creating an upscale feel. The available panoramic sunroof floods the interior with natural light, enhancing the overall ambiance.
Never go unnoticed. The XT6 stands out with distinctive lighting, including standard IntelliBeam auto high-beam assist. The XT6 also features sophisticated wheels that add to its dramatic appearance.
The Premium Luxury trim comes with standard 20″ split 6-spoke alloy wheels with a Polished/Android finish, while the Sport trim includes 20″ 12-spoke Diamond Cut alloy wheels with Dark Android Satin finish pockets.
In addition to its stylish design, the XT6 Sport offers responsive performance and expressive styling that is sure to turn heads both on the road and while parked.
Interior Comfort of the 2024 Cadillac XT6
One of the key advantages of the 2024 Cadillac XT6 is its versatile interior and ample cargo space. With three rows of seating, this luxury SUV can accommodate up to seven passengers comfortably. The second-row captain’s chairs provide easy access to the third row, making it convenient for larger families or groups.
In terms of cargo space, the XT6 offers up to 78.7 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded down. This generous cargo capacity ensures that you have plenty of room for luggage, groceries, or any other items you need to transport.
Cadillac has always been known for its emphasis on comfort and convenience, and the XT6 is no exception. The front seats are heated and ventilated, providing optimal comfort in any weather conditions. The available heated steering wheel adds an extra touch of luxury during colder months.
The XT6 also offers a power liftgate with hands-free operation, allowing you to access the cargo area even when your hands are full. Additionally, the SUV features an available adaptive suspension system that adjusts to changing road conditions for a smoother ride.
Experience the XT6’s three rows of stylish seating, providing enough space for seven passengers. Opt for the second-row captain’s chair configuration and accommodate six passengers while still enjoying impressive spaciousness and comfort. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

Safety Features of the 2024 Cadillac XT6
When it comes to safety, the 2024 Cadillac XT6 leaves no stone unturned. It comes equipped with an array of advanced safety features designed to keep you and your passengers protected on the road.
Some of the key safety features include:
- Forward Collision Alert
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
- Automatic Emergency Braking
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Blind Spot Monitoring
Additionally, the XT6 offers an available Night Vision system, which uses infrared technology to detect pedestrians and large animals in low-light conditions. This feature provides an extra layer of safety during nighttime driving.
FRONT PEDESTRIAN BRAKING
Front Pedestrian Braking can help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a pedestrian it detects directly ahead of you. It provides pedestrian alerts and can even automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking. The system works at speeds between 5 and 50 mph during the daytime. It has limited nighttime and low visibility performance.
AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING
At speeds above 5 mph and up to highway speeds, Automatic Emergency Braking can help you avoid or reduce the severity of a collision with a detected vehicle you’re following. Camera technology is used to automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking.
FORWARD COLLISION ALERT
Forward Collision Alert can warn you if it detects a potential front-end collision with a vehicle you’re following, so you can take action. It can also provide a tailgating alert if you’re following a vehicle much too closely.
SAFETY ALERT SEAT
Safety Alert Seat uses left, right or both-side driver seat vibration pulses to help you identify the direction of potential crashes. You can also switch to beeping crash avoidance alerts.
REAR SEAT REMINDER
Rear Seat Reminder can alert you to look in your rear seat before leaving your vehicle under certain conditions. It is activated by the opening and closing of the rear door just before or during vehicle use.
REAR CAMERA MIRROR
Uses a camera to provide you the option of using a wide and less obstructed view behind your vehicle while driving instead of a traditional rearview mirror. The feature also allows brightness, vertical tilt and zoom adjustments.
When selected, this system can help you see beyond your headlamps with a thermal image that highlights detected pedestrians or large animals directly ahead of the vehicle. Helps to instill confidence on night drives.
HD SURROUND VISION
Provides selectable digital camera views of the area around your vehicle to help you park and avoid vehicles and objects. You can also display a guideline to show where your vehicle is heading.
REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT
Can warn you of detected left or right cross traffic behind your vehicle when you’re in Reverse.
LANE CHANGE ALERT WITH SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT
Can provide side-mirror visual alerts when a detected moving vehicle is quickly approaching or is in your side blind zone. Can help you avoid lane change collisions.
REAR PEDESTRIAN ALERT
Can alert you to detected pedestrians directly behind your vehicle when in Reverse. It has limited nighttime and low visibility performance.
LANE KEEP ASSIST WITH LANE DEPARTURE WARNING
Uses a brief steering wheel turn to alert you when you may be unintentionally drifting out of detected lane lines, so you can steer to stay safely in your lane. If needed, you may receive additional Lane Departure Warning alerts. System alerts do not occur if you’re using your turn signal or it detects you may be intentionally leaving your lane.
Fuel Efficiency of the 2024 Cadillac XT6
Despite its powerful performance capabilities, the 2024 Cadillac XT6 manages to deliver respectable fuel efficiency numbers. With the standard V6 engine, it achieves an estimated EPA rating of 20 mpg in city driving and 27 mpg on the highway. These figures make it an efficient choice for daily commuting or long-distance travel.
The EPA rates the four-cylinder XT6’s fuel economy as 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway (dropping to 26 mpg with AWD). The V-6 models are almost as efficient, with city and highway ratings of 19 and 26 mpg, respectively (both figures dropping by one with AWD). However, when we tested an all-wheel-drive XT6 on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, we achieved a less-than-ideal 22 mpg. For comparison, the Mercedes-Benz GLE450 we tested on the same route earned 23 mpg.
Pricing and Trim Levels of the 2024 Cadillac XT6
The 2024 Cadillac XT6 is available in three trim levels: Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport. Each trim level offers a unique set of features and styling options to cater to different preferences.
The starting price for the base Luxury trim is around $48,000, while the higher-end Sport trim starts at approximately $57,000. With various optional packages and accessories available, you can customize your XT6 to suit your budget and desired level of luxury.
Although the Sport trim comes with the V-6 and AWD as standard features, the XT6 is most impressive as a luxury cruiser. Therefore, we believe that the money saved by opting for the Premium Luxury model would be better utilized towards enhancing the luxurious experience. We would suggest adding the Technology package (which includes an 8.0-inch digital gauge display, head-up display, 360-degree exterior camera system, and more) as well as the Driver Assist package (which includes adaptive cruise control and pedestrian detection). By doing so, you would still have some savings.
