2020 Cadillac XT6 vs. Its Competition

2020 Cadillac XT6
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The 2020 Cadillac XT6 will appeal to families looking for a three-row crossover, but unwilling to take the plunge for the Escalade's trucky appearance and ride.

It's related to the trio of GM three-row crossovers: the Traverse, Enclave, and Acadia, but doesn't offer a turbo-4 nor as much space.

The XT6 fits better among short, three-row rivals from Acura and Volvo.

However, it doesn't offer as much tech as the Volvo or a hybrid version like the Acura.

The new Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade feel much more pedestrian in their base trims, but loaded versions come in below $50,000 and dazzle with high-res wide-screen infotainment, supple leather, and free safety tech that costs extra on the XT6.
