If you have been thinking about getting your family a new midsize three-row SUV, then look no further. The 2021 Cadillac XT6 and 2021 Buick Enclave are amongst the most comfortable, reliable, and affordable family SUVs available in the market today. Both vehicles boast unique exterior and interior designs that are appealing to the eye and very functional. They also offer more ample cargo space than most of their competitors in class – which is quite impressive considering that they both feature three rows of seats. General Motors offers the 2021 XT6 in three trim levels, whereas the Buick Enclave is available in four trim levels.

Infotainment and connectivity

Today, most vehicles come equipped with the latest top-range infotainment systems designed to deliver everything you need for a road trip with the family. It is no different from the 2021 Cadillac XT6; the SUV features a CUE infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen. The responsive display delivers sharp, clear visuals and is quite user-friendly – even for first-time users. The system comes pre-installed with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration for seamless and convenient connectivity with your smartphone – so that you can keep your eyes on the road.

Entertainment is essential for any family vehicle. This is why GM fitted a premium 8-speaker BOSE audio system for an immersive listening experience. If 8-speakers don’t cut it, you can always opt for the available entertainment package that features a 14-speaker stereo and rear-seat entertainment with dual displays. The XT6 also features satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and six USB ports – no more fighting over the charging port.

On the other hand, the Enclave doesn’t do badly at all for itself. It comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a 6-speaker stereo system. If you want some extra goodies to fumble with, you can get the available infotainment features for a little more cash. They include a navigation system, wireless device charging, and HD radio.


The Cadillac XT6 is standardly powered by a 2.0L turbo-four that generates 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The two higher trim levels – Premium Luxury and Sports – draw their power from a more potent 3.6L V6 that puts out 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque.

The Enclave is powered by a 3.6L V6 engine that generates 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.

Gas Mileage

With fuel prices going up every day, you must consider the fuel efficiency of your new car for your everyday driving. However, GM has you covered with the 2021 XT6. The luxury midsize SUV with its standard turbo-four powertrain earns 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. In contrast, the larger V6 engine gets 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, which is not bad for the segment.

Like the XT6 V6, the 2021 Buick Enclave earns 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. However, if you opt for the all-wheel-drive setup, the number is slightly reduced to 17 mpg/ 25 mpg city/highway.
