Customers looking to add a little more stopping power to their 2022 Cadillac XT5 crossover can do so with the XT5’s available Brembo brake package.
The package will be offered as standard on the 2022 Cadillac XT5 Sport trim level, and will be unavailable on the rest of the line (Luxury and Premium Luxury).
The same Brembo brake package will be offered with the 2022 Cadillac XT6 mid-size crossover, as GM Authority covered previously. The package includes the same content when equipped on either the 2022 Cadillac XT5 or 2022 XT6.
To note, the Cadillac XT5 Sport trim level is set apart from the rest of the lineup by the inclusion of 20-inch 12-Spoke alloy wheels with a Pearl Nickel finish, Gloss Black exterior accents (grille, roof rails, and side window surrounds), Sport Control All-Wheel Drive System, upgraded chassis damping control, and Performance Suspension system. The standard engine in the XT5 Sport is the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX, which produces 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque.
The other two trims are offered with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY, which is standard on the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims, with the Premium Luxury also offered with the 3.6L V6 LGX. Output from the 2.0L I4 LSY is rated at 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Both engine options mate to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Additionally, the 2022 Cadillac XT5 will also lose two exterior paint colors, with Shadow Metallic and Garnet Metallic both deleted from the list with the introduction of the 2022 model year.
The 2022 Cadillac XT5 will be the last model year of the current first generation, with a second generation expected for the 2023 model year.
