The 2019 Chicago Auto Show played host to a new Cadillac XT5 variant. The brand introduced the 2019 Cadillac XT5 Sport Package, a limited-edition model that incorporates cues from other Sport variants in the Cadillac crossover lineup.
“[The package] gives our best-selling XT5 a dark, aggressive appearance and expands customer choices within our successful crossover portfolio,” Cadillac President Steve Carlisle said.
The Sport Package includes a gloss black grille with a Galvano surround, LED headlights with cornering function, and the signature clear taillight lenses we’ve seen on both the XT4 and XT6. The mid-size crossover also gains side-assist steps, 20-inch aluminum wheels finished in Technical Gray, and sport pedals inside. Buyers can choose either a Cirrus/Jet Black interior or full Jet Black. Both come with Diamond Cut aluminum trim.
Buyers will be able to opt for the package on both Luxury and Premium trims. Thus, the crossover gains all of the options for either trim. They include an 8-inch infotainment screen, Bose premium audio system, heated seats (ventilated as well on Premium Luxury trims), heated steering wheel and a power liftgate.
Power remains standard from regular XT5 models with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 310 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic handles shifting duties.
Pricing for the limited-edition package starts at $1,995 on the Premium Luxury trim model and $2,995 on the Luxury trim. Order books for the latest addition to the Cadillac crossover lineup will open this spring.
