The 2021 Lincoln Aviator Versus the 2021 Cadillac XT6

Luxury SUV shopping near Cincinnati can be stressful, especially when you're looking for something that will satisfy not only you, but up to six other people, too. It's important to go into the shopping process with as much information as possible, so we at Beau Townsend Lincoln of Dayton have collected some of the features that set the Lincoln Aviator apart from the Cadillac XT6.

Both the Lincoln Aviator and the Cadillac XT6 allow you to easily sit down and press a button to have the car remember your preferred seating configuration. Unfortunately, the XT6 only has a two-position memory, while the Lincoln Aviator can store up to three configurations, as well as automatically set the side mirrors.

If you plan on having a full SUV packed with up to six or seven people depending on your configuration, you'll probably want the extra cargo space that the Lincoln Aviator offers. With all seats folded down, the Lincoln Aviator and XT6 both offer similar cargo space-77.7 cubic feet and 78.7 cubic feet respectively. However, with all the seats in their upright position, the XT6 only has 12.6 cubic feet of space while the Lincoln Aviator has 18.3 cubic feet.


The rear-wheel-drive platform in the Lincoln Aviator was designed to also accommodate all-wheel drive.* Doing so gives you the option to choose what best meets your needs: the feel of rear-wheel drive,* or the confident grip of available all-wheel drive.

*Rear-wheel and all-wheel drivetrain availability varies by model.


To get the most out of your infotainment system, you need to be able to see at a glance what is on the screen. This is made easy thanks to the Lincoln Aviator's 10.1-inch LCD touchscreen, which has plenty of space for everything without feeling cluttered. In the Cadillac XT6, the eight-inch screen can sometimes feel crowded.

When it comes to music and podcasts, the Lincoln Aviator comes with a Lincoln Premium Audio System standard, giving you ten speakers and a subwoofer. The XT6 has a Bose® premium system with only eight speakers. If you're looking for an even better audio system, the Lincoln Aviator offers the Revel® Audio System on the Lincoln Aviator Reserve and above, which can be upgraded to a 28-speaker Revel Ultima 3D system. The XT6 offers a Bose® Performance system on its higher trims, but the premium system remains standard.

*Don't drive while distracted. Some features may be locked out when the vehicle is in gear. Not all features are compatible with all phones. Lincoln Connect includes complimentary 5-year subscription for remote features, excluding Wi-Fi hotspot, and starts from vehicle sale date (after which, fees apply). Length of complimentary 5-year subscription is subject to compatible network availability. Evolving technology/cellular networks may affect future functionality. Certain restrictions, 3rd-party terms or message/data rates may apply. Lincoln Way™, compatible with select smartphone platforms, is available via a download. Message and data rates may apply.
