The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is nearly ready to replace the aged Cadillac SRX, and hopefully do good things for the brand’s growth in the crossover segment. As it prepares to enter the North American market, the brand has also announced an official launch date for China.
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 will arrive in China on April 12, according to the brand, which will follow up the launch of the 2016 Cadillac CT6.
Unlike the North American Cadillac XT5, the 2017 Cadillac XT5 in China will arrive exclusively with a 2.0-liter LTG turbocharged four-cylinder, foregoing the 3.6-liter LGX V6 option. Cadillac is rumored to be mulling over a U.S. introduction for the 2.0-liter turbo later in the vehicle’s lifecycle.
Power is still delivered through an electronic precision shift unit, eight-speed automatic transmission, and is sent through front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
Following the introduction of the XT5, Cadillac will execute a hiatus of new product, as the brand continues to develop its crossover portfolio.
