It’s now the entry-level offering.
When the 2021 Cadillac XT6 goes on sale this fall, the crossover’s second model year, it’ll arrive with a new trim called Luxury. It slots below the Premium Luxury and Sport trims Cadillac offered on the 2020 model. It’s cheaper than the other two, too, starting at $48,990 without the destination charge. The lower cost puts the XT6 in a price range that covers 20 percent of the midsize luxury SUV segment.
Cadillac sets the Luxury trim apart with bright exterior trim paired with aluminum interior trim. Power will come from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 237 horsepower (177 kilowatts) that pairs with a nine-speed automatic gearbox. Front-wheel drive is standard with all-wheel-drive offered as an available option.
