2022 Cadillac Crossover & SUV

absolutely AUTO REVIEW | By Steve Kursar –

Cadillac XT6

The 2022 Cadillac Crossover and SUV lineup is one that has upped the bar for its competitors.  Known as the ultimate in luxury, Cadillac has taken that cue and created a group of four vehicles that will be the envy of all your neighbors.  And, there’s a size to fit all families, from empty nesters to large families that always need more room.

For those who are looking to move up to a luxury brand vehicle, the Cadillac XT4 is the perfect choice.  It’s the entry level model that is also designed for buyers who want the luxury but don’t need a great deal of room behind the front seat.  With a base MSRP of $36,295, this compact crossover is powered by a 235 hp, 2.0 liter turbocharged inline four cylinder engine and delivers impressive fuel economy numbers of 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.  It may be just an entry level crossover, but it’s still a Cadillac through and through.

If you need a roomier interior with a larger back seat, then step up to the Cadillac XT5.  With a base MSRP of $44,195, the XT5 was designed for families and those owners who just need extra cargo space.  The base engine for the XT5 is the same as its smaller sister the XT4, but there’s a larger more powerful engine as an option.  So, if you feel the need for more power, then you choose the 310 hp, 3.6 liter V6 engine that will give you 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

Cadillac Escalade

The largest crossover Cadillac offers is the three-row XT6.  This is the crossover to choose if you have to have a third row but you don’t need all the room the big Escalade can provide.  The XT6 is offered with two powertrains, the same ones that power the smaller XT5.

The Cadillac Escalade is the biggest, roomiest and most powerful Cadillac in this lineup. With a starting MSRP of $79,795, the Escalade comes standard with a massive 420 hp, 6.2 liter V8 that gets 14 mpg city and 19 mpg highway.  There is an alternate powertrain, a 277 hp, 3.0 liter turbo-diesel that delivers much better fuel economy numbers of 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.

Whatever your needs, there’s a luxurious Caddy to fit your needs like a well made suit.
