Industry analysts originally pegged the 2017 Cadillac XT5 crossover to debut earlier this year at the 2015 New York International Auto Show. Instead, N-Y-C became all about the full-size C-T-6 sedan.
So with Cadillac’s official statement pegging the 2017 XT5 for an early 2016 release, the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show is the perfect opportunity to officially take the wraps off the Cadillac SRX replacement. Or so we though. But we were wrong again, since Cadillac has announced the 2017 XT5 will actually make its world debut at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show, an important market for Cadillac going forward.
Though we’ve plenty of unconfirmed information on the XT5, little is officially confirmed about the crossover. And, of course, there is also the three photos of the vehicle revealed earlier this month. What we do know is that it will ride on the C1XX platform, that powertrain specifications remain a close-kept secret, and that it will be “a computer on wheels” with the technology tacked up to the CUV.
Although the 2017 XT5 will officially show face at the Dubai show running November 10-14, you bet Cadillac will bring it to Los Angeles shortly after, representing the first look for Americans at the luxury crossover.
