As eluded to previously, the XT6 bundles many of its best features into pricey option packages, even on the highest trim levels. The Sport AWD trim is the most expensive XT6 variant at $57,195. However, it still leaves out features like adaptive cruise control, reverse automatic braking, Bose audio, embedded navigation, heated/ventilated front seats, a surround-view monitor, and a head-up display. Adaptive cruise control comes standard on a Toyota Highlander; it should not be optional on a top-trim Cadillac.
Our XT6 Sport AWD rang in at $72,165 as-tested. Without factoring in GM’s heavy incentives, this is entirely too pricey for what the XT6 offers. Just remember that the Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade offer similar comfort and more features for around $47,000. Even the Buick Enclave, which uses the same engine but provides more passenger and cargo volume, only costs $53,800 in its top Avenir trim. If we had to choose a large, premium crossover from GM, it would be the Enclave over the XT6.
