2021 Cadillac XT6 vs. Its Competition

2021 Cadillac XT6
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Cadillac XT6 appeals to three-row shoppers looking for a luxury brand and perhaps more importantly, are willing to pay for it.

The Lincoln Aviator will oblige and it’s dripping with luxury touches.

The Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade have less impressive badges on the outside, but more impressive insides.

The Telluride was our Best Car To Buy 2020.

The Buick Enclave is related to the XT6 and satisfies all the same needs.

The Volvo XC90 is nearly the opposite of the XT6: it’s a little frumpy on the outside now, but its interior feels special every time.

Quick Specs
The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is a sharp spin on three-row family crossovers, but misses on a few details.
The 2021 Hyundai Palisade builds a bridge to luxury with three rows of seats, big touchscreens, and quilted leather.
The 2021 Kia Telluride earns our Best Car To Buy nod with its excellent features, warranty, space, and style.
The 2021 Lincoln Aviator drops sensational style and space, but the Grand Touring plug-in’s a bit of a misfire.
Low-key luxury lies in the 2021 Volvo XC90’s serene cockpit, in its strong acceleration, and in its gray-wool confines.
The 2020 Buick Enclave is a crossover SUV with a luxurious feel, and a price to match.
