Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is a sharp spin on three-row family crossovers, but misses on a few details.

Pros
Comfortable interior
Good V-6 power
Sharp face
Good active safety features
Available all-wheel drive

Cons
Rivals cost less...
…and some have better interiors
Rear is a dud
No Super Cruise

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic.Luxury trim level debuts below Premium Luxury and Sport.New base 237-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine.Wireless compatibility for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Pros
Quiet interior
Third row is roomy enough for most adults
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Minimal cargo space behind third row
Many advanced driver safety aids don't come standard
Jumpy throttle makes it hard to accelerate smoothly
Low towing limits

By:

A turbocharged four-cylinder joins the XT6 lineup for 2021 as part of the new entry-level Luxury trim level. The turbo four is shared with the smaller XT5 SUV, makes 237 horsepower, and comes paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. The 310-hp V-6 is still standard on the Premium Luxury and Sport models.

PROS
Sharply styled façade,
three roomy rows of seats,
high-tech features list.

CONS
Less-than-luxe cabin trimmings,
lackluster V-6 fuel efficiency,
borrows too much from other GM SUVs.

The 2020 GMC Yukon XL comes with four wheel drive, and rear wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 10-speed shiftable automatic, 6-speed shiftable automatic.The Yukon XL carries over essentially unchanged for 2020.

Pros
Seats up to nine passengers
Plenty of cargo capacity, even with all the seats up
High towing ratings

Cons
Size, weight and length make it unwieldy around town
Slow gas pedal response makes base engine feel less powerful than it's rated
Cargo space utility is limited by the high load floor

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2020 GMC Yukon is a business-casual blue-collar SUV with truck-like capability, but many crossovers do it better, and cheaper.

Pros
Strong V-8 engines
Massive towing capacity
High-class interior
Business-class looks
Comfortable ride quality on Denali

Cons
Limited cargo space
High top-end price
Floor height hampers leg room
Most crossovers do people better
