Cadillac XT5 sales decreased 26 percent to 13,582 units in the fourth quarter of 2018, slipping from its typical second place spot in the segment to third. The results are rather concerning, given consumers’ ongoing fascination with crossovers and the growth of the CUV body style. In February, a new Cadillac discount takes $1,500 off all 2019 XT5 models – a rather insignificant incentive given that the brand is taking $8,000 off the Escalade and $4,000 off the CT6 during the same timeframe.
The Cadillac discount on the XT5 for February 2019 is as follows:
- 2019 XT5 (finance): $1,500 cash when financing with GM Financial
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 Standard model with a starting MSRP of $42,690, the $1,500 discount brings the starting price to a slightly more modest $41,190.
- Must take delivery by February 28, 2019.
- See dealer for details.
- Incentive for the United States of America, unless otherwise specified.
- Some customers may not qualify for this offer.
