Cadillac XT5 sales decreased 23 percent to 13,118 units in the second quarter of 2019. Sales of the XT5 have been declining throughout the first half of 2019, a rather worrisome chain of events given that crossovers in the model’s segment are exhibiting growth in sales volumes. So, in what could be an effort to combat slumping sales or prevent current customers from switching to competing vehicles, a new Cadillac discount takes $2,000 off all models of the 2019 XT5 crossover in July 2019. Disgruntled loyal owners will be pleased to hear that this offer is only available to current Cadillac owners.
The Cadillac discount offers on the XT5 for July 2019 are as follows:
- Retail offer: $1,000 cash for everyone
- Finance offer: $1,000 APR cash + 0 percent APR financing (interest-free) for 72 months when banking through Ally, US Bank, or GM Financial. This offer is not available with some other offers.
- Cash offer (for current Cadillac owners & lessees): $2,000 cash
- To qualify, buyer must show proof of current Cadillac ownership or lease through Ally, US Bank, or GM Financial. This offer is not available with some other offers.
It is currently unclear whether or not the $1,000 and $2,000 Cadillac discount offers can be combined, though we would not count on it.
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 reduces the starting price to a slightly more modest $64,890. Meanwhile, the $1,000 discount reduces the starting price of the Standard (base) model to $41,690.
It’s worth noting that Cadillac’s cross-town rival, Lincoln Motor Company, has boosted its incentive offers for its XT5 fighter – the Lincoln Nautilus, and is offering a similar deal that includes a $1,000 discount and interest-free financing. Hence, it looks like it’s a great time to be in the market for a mid-sized luxury crossover.

About Cadillac XT5
The Cadillac XT5 is a premium luxury crossover that replaced the Cadillac SRX in the Cadillac range. The XT5 slots between the compact Cadillac XT4 and upcoming three-row Cadillac XT6 in the Cadillac lineup.
Currently in its first generation, the XT5 was introduced for the 2017 model year. The vehicle is based on the regular-length wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform shared with the second-generation GMC Acadia and upcoming, future Chevrolet Blazer. A longer-wheelbase variant of the same platform underpins the second-gen Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave.
For the 2019 model year, the XT5 deletes four existing exterior colors to make room for four new ones, while making a couple package-level changes: the Driver Awareness Package becomes standard on the Luxury model while the Driver Assist Package becomes standard on the Platinum model. 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.
The XT5 is produced across the following GM plants globally:
- GM Spring Hill factory in Tennessee operated by GM USA supplying North America, Middle East, Europe, and Russia
