2023 Cadillac XT5 Recommended By Consumer Reports14
The 2023 Cadillac XT5 stands as the seventh model year of the first-generation luxury crossover. Despite its age, the 2023 XT5 has been given a “recommended” rating by Consumer Reports.
This “recommended” rating comes as the result of a few different scores:
- Road test rating – 75/100
- Owner satisfaction rating – 3/5
- Predicated reliability rating – 3/5
These three sections result in an overall score of 67 points out of a maximum of 100.
In the performance section, CR gave the Cadillac XT5 a 4/5 for acceleration, transmission, and braking, and a 3/5 for emergency handling. CR noted that the luxury crossover’s 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine provides motivation in a linear fashion, but feels slightly lethargic as compared to XT5’s competition.
With regard to Owner Satisfaction, owners rank the driving experience as 85/100, comfort with 88/100, and value at 44/100.
When it comes to reliability, the Caddy was given a score of 48/100. When compared to other vehicles in its size class, this places the XT5 in the middle of the pack, ahead of the likes of the Audi Q5 and Tesla Model Y with scores of 46/100 and 38/100, respectively. Sitting atop the rankings is the Kia EV6 and Lexus NX Hybrid, each with an 84/100.
As a whole, GM performed very well in CR’s latest rankings, with multiple vehicles from Chevy, Cadillac, GMC and Buick receiving a recommended rating.
As a reminder, the 2023 Cadillac XT5 is available with two engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, which produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, and the optional naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, which develops 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. No matter engine choice, the GM nine-speed automatic transmission is equipped as standard, with either FWD or AWD drivetrain configurations available.
Under the skin, the XT5 rides on the GM C1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee, which also produces the Cadillac Lyriq, the Cadillac XT6, and the GMC Acadia.

I don’t mind the exterior look on the XT-5, but the interior dash is so outdated. I hope after this model year, a major update design is announced.
It has been said that’s going to happen. The problem for the U S Cadillac buyers is that the refreshed 2024 model will be going to China.
No stop sending our work overseas…..they make cheap crap their we don’t want our vehicles on our roads made anywhere but here in the USA
So tell the higher ups to take pay cuts!!!
I wholeheartedly agree with you, it’s our American made product, it shouldn’t be built in another country and we definitely don’t want any of their crap.
That’s the problem with American automotive, they give another county our best quality in automotive and we get technical issues.
Yup major redesign for XT5…discontinue the product in USA! Absolutely absurd. Cadillac all electric initiative is peddle to the metal! Why not go hybrid for a few years and then force us to go plug in later like E Ray Vette? Agh!
Figures, XT5 get a good reco from Consumer Reports and the model will soon be discontinued in the USA, but will survive in China…agh!
The MORONS in the GM tower made an outstanding model and now will discontinue without a refresh, worst of all produce it in communist china taking more jobs away from American workers ..
The Caddy XT5 has sold quite well. They are doing a lot right. The build quality and the infotainment system works and sounds fantastic for a factory system well. Why change it? Thumbs up for me !
Correct ,It is a nice vehicle . A dash and some body changes would be great also, but don’t INSULT the American Cadillac drivers by sending the refresh model to CHINA .
I have a 2018 Cadillac XT5 with only 18,000 miles I bought spanking brand new, so far as of 5 years, I haven’t had any technical or mechanical issues, but I don’t care for the AUTO SHUTOFF when idling at a traffic light. I have to use the manual shift mode to override the AUTO SHUTOFF.
Yes,I have the 2020 model and you can turn off the Auto Shutoff on this one.
I have a 2023 model and I don’t see the auto shutoff as a problem. It saves gas and the synthetic oil makes restarting very easy task for the car to manage. I also have 2 Chevys with the same feature. It was never a problem.
I have. 2017 xt5 with a little over 67,000 miles. I love every aspect of this crossover. I am very much disappointed that China will get the 2024 model. I am not ready for an electric vehicle. I would encourage GMC to reconsider doing away with the xt5 in the good old USA,
