The 2023 Cadillac XT5 is the seventh model year of the current first-gen nameplate, introducing only a handful of changes and updates as compared to the previous 2022 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned when the start of regular production for the 2023 Cadillac XT5 will begin.
According to GM Authority sources, production of the 2023 Cadillac XT5 will begin on June 10th, 2022. The crossover will once again be produced at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee, the same facility that produces the Cadillac XT6, GMC Acadia, and Cadillac Lyriq EV crossovers.
Per previous GM Authority coverage, the 2023 Cadillac XT5 ushers in a revised exterior paint options list, with three colors previously offered for the 2022 model year no longer available. The deleted exterior paint options include Satin Steel Metallic (paint code G9K) Dark Moon Blue Metallic (paint code GLU), and Infrared Tintcoat (paint code GSK).
These three outgoing colors are replaced with three new colors, including Radiant Red Tintcoat (paint code GNT), Opulent Blue Metallic (paint code GTR), and Argent Silver Metallic (paint code GXD). Argent Silver Metallic will not include an extra charge, whereas Radiant Red Tintcoat and Opulent Blue Metallic will.
The Cadillac XT5 is now once again available to order with heated and ventilated seats. Both features were previously under constraint since March.
The 2023 Cadillac XT5 was originally set to receive a brand-new second generation for the 2023 model year. However, the generational overhaul was subsequently delayed until the 2024 model year. The current first-generation crossover made its debut for the 2017 model year, with a refresh introduced for the 2020 model year.
As a reminder, the Cadillac XT5 is offered with two powertrain options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, as well as the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine. Both engine options mate to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission, while under the skin, the crossover rides on the GM C1 platform.
