Compare the 2021 Lincoln Aviator to the 2021 Cadillac XT6

2021 Lincoln Aviator vs. 2021 Cadillac XT6

  • The new Aviator keeps things simple with one engine option, a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that delivers 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque - a robust powertrain that doesn't shy away from challenges. Under the hood of the Cadillac XT6, you'll find two engine options, including an available 3.6-liter V6, but neither engine option matches up to the Aviator's lone powertrain.
  • The Aviator lineup also offers a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with Nano electric motor, coming standard with AWD and delivering up to 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. You'll also enjoy an efficient ride with an EPA-estimated 54/58 mpg city/highway. The XT6 offers no hybrid engine setup, limiting your capability and requiring more frequent trips to the gas pump.
  • Passengers in the front-row of the Lincoln SUV will enjoy more legroom and headroom over the Cadillac rival, and those in the second row will find they can sit a bit taller when traveling around in the 2021 Aviator compared to the XT6.
  • Both models offer plenty of cargo room that configures to your needs while on the go. However, if you take advantage of the seven-seat arrangement in both models, you'll get a bit more cargo space to work with in the Lincoln SUV. The Aviator offers a minimum of 18.3 cubic feet of storage area, compared to only 12.6 cubic feet in the Cadillac XT6.
  • Enjoy a seamless connected experience while driving? The Lincoln Aviator is the way to go, with a 10.1-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration, and plenty more to explore! The XT6's Cadillac user experience is also easy-to-navigate, but you'll need to work with only an eight-inch touchscreen on the base model.

As part of the approach feature sequence, the door handle pockets softly glow while a Lincoln logo welcome mat is projected from the sideview mirror, illuminating the ground below the door. These lights help to guide the way while helping you see any debris, unevenness or water, making for more sure-footed entrances.


Placing light where it's needed. The available Adaptive Pixel LED Headlamps apply a number of technologies to appropriately place light both on and off the road. At highway speeds, available speed-dependent lighting is designed to shine light farther into the distance; at slower speeds, the light array widens, helping drivers to detect pedestrians and potential hazards. Light-bending functionality uses camera technology to read road signs and lane markings to pre-illuminate the direction the road is heading.

Experience the sound of sanctuary. The Lincoln Aviator features available Active Noise Control that captures, analyzes and cancels sound within the cabin. An acoustic laminated windshield and front door glass as well as expandable baffles further enhance interior quietness. To reduce sound from the powertrain, the engine compartment is sealed with a dual wall and the exhaust system is dual-valved. These attributes and more were all artfully crafted for your peace of mind.
