The Environmental Protection Agency has released its official estimated fuel economy figures for the 2021 Cadillac XT5 crossover with the standard 2.0L turbocharged LSY four-cylinder engine and available all-wheel drive system.
When equipped with the 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder, standard nine-speed automatic transmission and optional AWD, the 2021 Cadillac XT5 is rated at 21 mpg city, 27 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined. The 2020 Cadillac XT5 with the same powertrain setup was rated at 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined.
The EPA has not yet released its fuel economy estimate for the 2021 Cadillac XT5 with the standard front-wheel-drive setup, though the closely related 2021 GMC Acadia and 2021 Chevrolet Blazer with the same 2.0L engine and FWD are rated at 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined. This should provide a good indication as to what kind of fuel economy figures we can expect for the 2021 Cadillac XT5 with the 2.0L engine and FWD.
The 2.0L turbocharged engine in the 2021 Cadillac XT5 is good for 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The midsize, two-row crossover is offered with an optional 3.6L LGX V6 engine as well, which produces 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. The EPA has not yet released its official fuel economy figures for the 2021 Cadillac XT5 V6, though the 2020 Cadillac XT5 V6 with FWD was rated at 18 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined, while AWD models were rated at 18 mpg city, 25 mpg highway and 20 mpg combined.
Prices for the 2021 Cadillac XT5 will start at $44,990 for the Luxury trim model with the 2.0L turbocharged engine, nine-speed automatic transmission and FWD. The crossover will continue to be built at GM’s Spring Hill Assembly plant in Tennessee, and new 2021 model-year Cadillac XT5 vehicles should begin to arrive at dealerships in the United States in the coming weeks, with Canadian deliveries likely to begin sometime shortly after that.
