The current, first-generation Cadillac XT5 made its debut for the 2017 model year, with a refresh launched for the 2020 model year. The luxury crossover was set to receive a heavy update for the 2023 model year, but the refresh was subsequently delayed, and it’s currently unclear if it will ever see the light of day.
As a reminder, the Cadillac XT5 continues to ride on the GM C1 platform and is offered with two powertrain options. The turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, is standard on Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels. Models with this engine wear the 350T on the liftgate. Meanwhile, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque, is optional on the Premium Luxury trim level and standard on the Sport trim. These models can be identified by the 400 badge on the liftgate. No matter the engine, output is routed through the GM nine-speed automatic transmission.
On Luxury and Premium Luxury, front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel-drive is optional. Sport models feature all-wheel-drive as standard.
Not to be confused with the next-gen, Chinese-market XT5. The NHTSA believes the recall will fix the issue.
