The 2024 Cadillac XT6 - Comprehensive Details!
It’s difficult to think of a vehicle segment more cutthroat than the U.S. SUV market. However, General Motors (GM) has boxed clever with the release of the 2024 Cadillac XT6. This vehicle straddles the gap between the smaller XT4 and XT5 and the mighty Escalade.
When it comes to the Cadillac XT6, GM appears to have stuck with the tried and proven. Those expecting a complete revamp of the previous model are going to be disappointed. In fact, the most notable changes for the 2024 model XT6 are the addition of two new paint options, Emerald Lake Metallic and Midnight Sky Metallic, as well as red, blue, or bronze accent packages.
Infotainment and Technology
Cadillac hasn’t changed a winning formula when it comes to infotainment. The XT6 features the familiar highly responsive 8.0-inch touchscreen, as well as Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay. Drivers and passengers have access to Wi-Fi, and there’s the option to enjoy a three-month trial of hotspot functionality. The XT6 also offers wireless device charging. Real-time navigation functionality is available as a standard feature or an option on the Luxury model.
Interior Comfort and Cargo Space
Cadillac has once again chosen to keep the industry standard winning formula of a six and seven-seat layout. Second-row choices include the ever-popular ‘Captain’s Seat’ configuration or the equally popular bench layout. The third row is marketed as being suitable for two adults, but the truth of the matter is that, like many other SUVs in this class, the third row is more suitable for those with smaller frames/kids.
The boxy shape of the Cadillac XT6 may not be to everyone’s taste, but it has allowed GM engineers the leeway to provide a spacious interior. However, with all seats upright, cargo space is only ‘adequate’ at 356 litres. Folding down the third row will definitely improve matters up to 1,220 litres. With all seats folded, there’s enough room for a weekend's luggage and more, with a maximum capacity of 2,228 litres.
Engine and Performance Features
The Cadillac XT6 retains the powertrains from the previous models. Drivers can choose either the 237-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder or the powerful 310-horsepower V-6 engine. Each of these engines is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Luxury and Premium Luxury models are available in front or all-wheel drive, and the Sport only comes in AWD.
The 2024 Cadillac XT6 features fuel economy figures that are in line with what you’d expect. It does 11.2 L/100 km in the city and 9.0 L/100 km cruising down the highway (the V6 model is about as frugal as the four-cylinder options). But if you opt for any of the AWD models, the car becomes a little more thirsty.
ConclusionThe Cadillac XT6 2024 remains virtually unchanged from its predecessor, but it’s still a whole lot of an SUV. The Luxury model available from Myers Cadillac has a sticker price of $65,230*, with the model lineup topping out with the Sport at $70,630*.
