Cadillac’s new 3-row crossover SUV, the XT6 will be showing up in showrooms this summer. However, we didn’t know yet what it would cost. That changes now.
For a front-drive Premium Luxury model, the SUV will carry a $53,690 price tag (including destination).
Decide you want the sport trim, which brings all-wheel drive, and you’ll be starting at $58,090. Sport is also differentiated with gloss black exterior accents in place of the Luxury trim’s “Bright Galvano” trim.
All trims come with a significant number of safety and security features, such as forward collision alert, emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, Cadillac’s Safety Alert Seat, and front and rear parking assist.
Other features include Cadillac’s new over-the-air software updates (allowing improvements to interior electronics to be applied without a visit to the dealer). Additionally, an XT6 owner will get 10 years of Cadillac’s Connected Access.
The XT6 appears to offer many features that luxury buyers are looking for in a package and price that buyers will appreciate. We’ll be watching to see how well this works in Cadillac’s push to increase sales later this year.

Cadillac’s first-ever XT6 will offer one of the segment’s strongest rosters of standard features and safety and driver assistance technologies, with a starting price of $53,690 (including destination charge)1, for the Premium Luxury FWD model.
The lineup also includes the XT6 Sport, with standard Sport Control AWD, which starts at $58,090 (including destination charge).1
“The XT6 is designed to make every seat the best seat in the house, with every inch carefully considered to offer refinement, comfort, connectivity and safety,” said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. “With its host of standard features and two expressions of the signature Cadillac experience, XT6 will offer customers a high level of content with choices for style and driving character.”
Bright Galvano exterior accents distinguish the Premium Luxury model, while the XT6 Sport is defined by gloss black accents and more aggressive, performance-inspired details. Both models feature advanced lighting technology, including vertically emphasized LED signatures.
The XT6’s rewarding balance of responsiveness and driving refinement is uniquely reflected in each of the models. A greater emphasis on road isolation is placed on the Premium Luxury, while a greater feeling of agility is dialed into the Sport’s chassis tuning.
