The XT6, which Cadillac introduced in 2020, is a three-row midsize SUV with seating up to 7. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it handles mud, snow, and sand with ease. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Cadillac offers a 4-year, 50,000-mile basic warranty, and a 6-year, 70,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 Cadillac XT6 is above average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Cadillac XT6 has a score of 87, implying a 0.033% chance of driver death (3% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.028%, and the chance of injury falls to 2.5%.

We estimate that the 2022 Cadillac XT6 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0331% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.7795%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0331% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.7795% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Cadillac XT6 is 29% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Cadillac XT6 is 19% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

2022 Cadillac XT6 offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. Active safety systems that are standard on the Cadillac XT6 include: Super Cruise with Forward Collision Alert (FCA), Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Side Blind Zone System.

Safety features can still make a vehicle safer, even if not as flashy as emergency automatic braking. Standard Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps better illuminate the road ahead --- the lights point towards the direction that the vehicle is heading. Standard side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
