The Cadillac XT5 is poised to receive a generational overhaul for the 2025 model year, with the all-new crossover introducing new styling, an updated platform, and a totally overhauled cabin complete with new tech features. To that latter point, the 2025 Cadillac XT5 will feature a new widescreen LED display. To note, the 2025 Cadillac XT5 will be exclusive to the Chinese market.
Recent spy photos of the all new 2025 Cadillac XT5 show a camouflaged prototype out and about for some testing. Critically, our spy photographers managed to capture a shot of the overhauled cabin as well, specifically the dash, revealing a new widescreen LED display.
Looking over the photos, we see a broad screen that stretches from behind the steering wheel all the way to the center of the dash. The top of the screen arcs across the dash in an elegant curve. The design is similar to the screen found in the Cadillac Lyriq and refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4, continuing the luxury marque’s latest design direction with regard to infotainment features, likely incorporating both a digital gauge readout for the driver, as well as the broader infotainment features traditionally handled by a center-mounted touchscreen.
With regard to the exterior styling, the 2025 Cadillac XT5 will adopt a new look, with recent spy photos revealing a set of vertical headlights that bookend both sides of the front fascia. Although the prototype models spied thus far are equipped with placeholder headlight housings, the design and layout look similar to that of the refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4. In addition, the grille of the overhauled XT5 incorporates a new mesh design, once again recalling the design of the refreshed XT4.
As GM Authority covered previously, GM China will be responsible for the development of the next-generation Cadillac XT5. Under the body, the crossover will ride on the GM C1-2 platform, which is essentially the second iteration of the GM C1 platform underpinning the current model. Meanwhile, the current XT5 will carry over unchanged for the 2025 model year here in the U.S.
