Your First Look At The 2017 Cadillac XT5 Interior12
Cadillac surprised those attending the New York Fashion Week kickoff last night with a surprise unveiling of the 2017 Cadillac XT5, flying the brand’s latest crossover via helicopter in Manhattan, as spotlights highlighted SRX replacement’s design.
While Cadillac followed that up with a few teaser photos of 2017 XT5’s exterior, a new video was published this morning to Cadillac’s official Facebook page. During the video, a rapid fire of frames towards the end breezes through features of the 2017 XT5.
But, with some careful clicking, we were able to stop the video at just the right time to snag the shot you see above. Here, we see the 2017 XT5’s interior for the first time, albeit dark for a reason, it still shows some interesting things.
We see the gear selector is lit up in a certain iDrive-like fashion, and CUE looks to be following the necessary updates debuted on the 2016 Cadillac CT6. It’s unknown if the 2017 XT5 will sport the same touch-pad style selector as the 2016 CT6, but it’s quite possible. After all, the best description of the 2017 XT5 has been a “computer on wheels.”
Thankfully, it looks like the gauges have received some much needed redesigning, and haven’t followed trend with the ho-hum cluster found in the Cadillac ATS. They also seem to look decidedly analog, with four small gauges possibly detailed digitally in a driver’s information screen.
We’ll soon see the 2017 Cadillac XT5 in the sheetmetal, as the luxury crossover gears up for its official debut at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show.

The gauge cluster looks to be similar to that found in the Stingray, 2016 Camaro, and Yukon Denali – an 8″ reconfigurable digital display with analog speedometer and tachometer on each side. The gear selector is interesting, why is it not similar to that found on the upcoming CT6? The XT5 gear selector looks to be more in line with offerings from BMW. With the CT6 being the company’s flagship, it too should have featured such a system yet it does not. Can’t wait to see more of the XT5.
Huge improvement over the current cadillac interiors other then the CT6. That gauge cluster needs to be standard on all Cadillacs.
Looks like it’s going to have an electronic gear shifter. I’m really liking this vehicle
Looks good so far. I notice that CUE looks like the 8 inch version found on Cadillac’s current offerings and not the bigger 10.2 inch updated version found on the CT6. Which makes sense since the CT6 is the top level model.
Looks like there is a Heads-Up display . Check out the base of the windshield , just above the top of the steering wheel . I wouldn’t put it past GM to try and hide it with all the city lights you see thru the windshield . I like what I’ve seen so far , the front end looks like the family Cadillac .
Found these pics of the exterior of the XT5 a full set ( 360 ) at http;//www.motorauthority.com/news/1041930_2017-cadillac-xt5-revealed-in-first-official-photos#src=10062. Best pics to date .
Niice looks like they got rid of the old Cue and there is actual knobs.
i hope that the interior build is at the level.
Looks similar to 2015 Yukon in the interior……………
My initial impressions of the XT5 were “meh”, but after seeing these photos, I say it’s less “meh” and more like a “not bad”. The styling looks improved in the front fascia: the lower portion of the grill looks better integrated than the metallic strip the earlier leaked photos has. And as usual, Cadillac’s signature lighting is still handsome. However, while the side bulge extending to the rear fender is a nice touch, the overall side profile just doesn’t do enough to set the XT5 apart from the segment. From the side in general, it resembles a Buick Enclave. I’m dying to see the interior layout; from what was snapped in that helicopter vid, it looks decent. Hopefully there’ll be a return to regular buttons and knobs.
All in all, the XT5 looks to be a breath of fresh air for Cadillac’s severely lacking crossover offerings! Can’t wait to see more!
the CT6 is not a flagship…. the CT8 will be.
Now I know GMI is for us GM fanboys, but seriously, whats with all the praise for what is in effect the same recipe as the last SRX. Nothing ground breaking and certainly not a break out car in anyway. I hope it sells well. But frankly this is little more than a Cadillac RX350…Snooze.
Have you seen the new RX350…it makes the Pontiac Aztek look good…no it makes the Aztek look GREAT !!!
