Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Available on the mid- and upper-level EX and SX Telluride trims, the Nightfall Edition package gives the SUV altogether darker vibe in keeping with the industry's various blacked-out "night edition" models. The Telluride's roof rails, skid plates, front bumper air ducts, and logos have all been painted black. A black-painted grille features an eye-catching pattern unique to the Nightfall Edition, and Kia tops it all off with unique 20-inch black wheels and LED headlamps and fog lamps with black inner bezels.
Even though every Nightfall Edition wears the darkened exterior trim, customers can order it with paint in shades of white, silver, gray, dark red, or dark green.

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.
