Are you looking for a large and luxurious SUV? Well, you've likely come across the 2020 Lincoln Aviator vs. Cadillac XT6 debate. Both of these manufacturers have put all their knowledge and expertise into these family-oriented SUVs-and that means you end up with two great choices for your trips around Richmond, Mechanicsville, and Ashland.

However, you can only choose one. Luckily, our Richmond Lincoln team is here to lend a hand.

When you're shopping for a car, thorough research is important, so we've crafted this review that explores the features and specifications of the Lincoln Aviator and its counterpart, the Cadillac XT6.

Performance Power and Versatility

Bounding around in a large SUV is only enjoyable if it has enough power to get you moving. While track times aren't needed, the sheer size of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator and Cadillac XT6 means that they need ample horsepower and torque to get up to speed. As you'll learn, the Lincoln Aviator proves to be a few steps-or miles-ahead of the comparable Cadillac XT6.

The sole engine of the Cadillac is a 3.6L V6, which churns out 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. Your ride will feel different behind the wheel of the Lincoln Aviator. The Lincoln SUV comes with a standard 3.0L V6 engine, which delivers 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque.

If that's not enough power for you, take it to the next level by selecting the Twin-Turbocharged 3.0L V6 and electric motor on the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring. This hybrid powertrain delivers 494 combined system horsepower along with 630 lb-ft of torque!

Fuel Economy Comparison

The hybrid configuration of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator is more efficient than the Cadillac XT6, but how do the two SUVs compare if you look at the efficiency from their standard engines? While the result is much closer, the Lincoln Aviator surpasses the Cadillac XT6 again.

With the Cadillac, you can expect 18 city MPG/25 highway MPG according to EPA estimates. The standard V6 of the Lincoln Aviator achieves an EPA-estimated 18 city MPG/26 highway MPG.1

Cargo Room in the Trunk

Whether you settle into the 2020 Lincoln Aviator or the 2020 Cadillac XT6, you'll have ample interior space. If you're prepping for a long road trip and have relatives comfortably seated in the rear rows, trunk space becomes even more vital. After all, you need enough room to store luggage, supplies, and other items.

The Cadillac XT6 does what it can to carve out rear cargo space, providing you with 12.6 cubic feet behind the third-row seats.  

The Lincoln Aviator interior has a more practical design, affording you 18.3 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third row!

2020 Lincoln Aviator Beats the Cadillac XT6

When it comes to performance, the Lincoln Aviator and its fuel economy and overall strength surpasses the Cadillac XT6. Still, the Lincoln SUV also has more rear cargo space than its Cadillac competitor.

Ultimately, our team at Richmond Lincoln believes the 2020 Lincoln Aviator is going to be the most well-rounded SUV for your family near Ashland, Richmond, and Mechanicsville. To see for yourself, schedule a personal test drive with us today!
