Cadillac XT5 sales decreased 10.5 percent to 13,278 units in the first quarter of 2019. The results are rather concerning, given the car buyers’ ongoing fascination with crossovers and the rise in popularity of the CUV body style. So in what could be an effort to flip the first quarter trend in April, a new Cadillac discount takes $2,000 off all models of the 2019 XT5 crossover, making it the largest incentive in recent history on the crossover SUV.
The Cadillac discount on the XT5 for April 2019 is as follows:
- Cash offer (for current lessees): $2,000 cash for current GM lessees
- To qualify, buyer must show proof of current GM lease through Ally, US Bank, or GM Financial. This offer is not available with some other offers.
- Purchase allowance (for everyone): $1,000 purchase allowance
For reference, here are the 2019 XT5 trim levels and their corresponding starting MSRPs:
- Standard – $42,690
- Luxury – $49,490
- Premium Luxury – $55,190
- Platinum – $66,890
Applied to a 2019 XT5 Platinum model with a starting MSRP of $66,890, the $2,000 discount brings the starting price to a slightly more modest $64,890. Meanwhile, the $1,000 discount brings the starting price of the base Standard model to $41,690.
- Must take delivery by April 30, 2019.
- See dealer for details.
- Incentive for the United States of America, unless otherwise specified.
- Some customers may not qualify for this offer.
- Offer not available with special finance, lease, and some other offers.

A longer-wheelbase variant of the same platform underpins the second-gen Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave.

Two sets of 20-inch wheels become available. In addition, the 2019 XT5 receives a new, second-generation wireless smartphone charging system that is higher power is now compatible with Apple iPhones. Finally, Provence leather replaces micro-suede on the mid-panel of the instrument panel.
The 2020 model year will deliver a mid cycle update that includes revised trim level structure (adopting the Cadillac Y trim level strategy), slight revisions to the exterior design, a few small updates to the interior, and the introduction of a 9-speed automatic transmission in place of the 8-speed unit on the 2017-2019 models.
