These impressive ratings come thanks in part to the Cadillac XT6’s comprehensive suite of driver-assist safety technologies, many of which are standard features. These include the following:
- Forward collision alert
- Front pedestrian and automatic emergency braking
- Blind-spot detection with rear-cross traffic alert
- HD rear vision camera
- Parking Assist
You can also opt for add-on safety features such as adaptive cruise control, rear pedestrian alert, a rearview camera mirror, and reverse automatic braking. While the XT6 doesn’t offer Cadillac’s prestigious Super Cruise technology, it’s still packed with what you need to keep you safe behind the wheel.

The 2020 Cadillac XT6 is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain generates 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque.
The standard hands-free power liftgate helps make grocery trips easier when it comes to loading and unloading your purchases. Heated driver and front passenger seats offer comfort and warmth on a cold day, while the standard UltraView power sunroof allows you to take advantage of beautiful weather.
The 2020 Cadillac XT6 also boasts a Bose premium audio system with eight speakers and a user-friendly Cadillac user experience system that boasts smartphone integration and an 8-inch color touch screen.
Greener Future: Cadillac launches electric vehicle push
The XT6 slots in between the two-row XT5 and the behemoth Escalade in Cadillac’s lineup, which makes it an ideal choice for larger families who don’t need the Escalade’s heft. This new accolade shows that it’s also a smart choice when it comes to you and your family’s safety on the road.
