2022 Cadillac XT6 vs. Its Competition

2022 Cadillac XT6
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Lincoln Aviator is a decidedly different take on a luxury SUV than the XT6, and we like its polished handling and step-up interior.

Consider the Buick Enclave, which offers many of the XT6’s virtues in a more affordable price tag.

Hyundai and Kia have a pair of hits on their hands with the Palisade and the Telluride, and it’s easy to see why these stylish, spacious crossovers are so popular.

And if you’re spending big SUV money, make sure to check out the BMW X5—it’s pricier, but perhaps not by as much as you’d expect once you start loading up an XT6.

Quick Specs
The 2022 Cadillac XT6 is a stylish, spacious crossover, but it does little to make a strong impression.
The 2022 Buick Enclave smothers bumps and swaddles passengers in three rows of comfort.
The 2022 Hyundai Palisade melds family-wagon utility with luxury-SUV fittings to vault to the top of our three-row SUV ratings.
The 2022 Kia Telluride still tops our family-SUV shopping list with its handsome looks, great space, plentiful features, and long warranty.
The 2021 X5 is BMW’s best vehicle, one that does nearly everything with grace and ease.
The 2021 Lincoln Aviator drops sensational style and space, but the Grand Touring plug-in’s a bit of a misfire.
