The online configurator tool for the 2022 Cadillac XT5 has officially gone live on the luxury automaker’s website, allowing users to customize their own version of the popular compact crossover.
We hopped on Cadillac.com and experimented with the configurator ourselves, creating the well-equipped 2022 Cadillac XT5 seen here. Our example vehicle is based on the Premium Luxury trim and features the available Platinum Package. We also selected the Dark Moon Blue Metallic exterior color and the Maple Sugar semi-aniline leather seats with chevron perforated inserts. We opted for the 20-inch chrome wheels over the gloss black-painted wheels, as well, and added some extras like monochrome Cadillac badges and roof rack cross rails.
General Motors has applied some minor changes and updates to the 2022 Cadillac XT5. The luxury crossover will ditch two previously available exterior colors, Shadow Metallic and Garnet Metallic, which will not be replaced by any new colors. The vehicle will also receive a new Brembo performance brake package, which includes Brembo front brakes and red-painted front and rear brake calipers. The crossover will also have limited availability for the wireless charging pad for the 2022MY due to the ongoing semiconductor shortage.
The Cadillac XT5 is available with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, which produces 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, or the naturally aspirated 3.6L LGX V6, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are paired with GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel-drive is standard across the board, while all-wheel-drive is available for a price premium.
