The forthcoming 2025 model year is set to introduce an all-new generation for the Cadillac XT5 crossover, complete with new styling, an overhauled interior, an updated platform, and more. The next-gen 2025 Cadillac XT5 will also be exclusive to the Chinese market. Now, GM Authority spy photographers have once again caught the new 2025 Cadillac XT5 testing as a camo-clad prototype.
As was the case with the prototypes seen previously, this next-generation 2025 Cadillac XT5 prototype is covered in heavy camouflage, including black vinyl on top of a swirling black-and-white wrap. Standard features include a set of placeholder headlights, which are arranged in a vertical layout around the sides of the front facia. Between the placeholder headlights we see a new mesh design for the grille. Both elements seem to recall similar styling introduced with the recently refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4. As covered previously, GM China will be responsible for vehicle development.
Notably, this particular 2025 Cadillac XT5 prototype is wearing a new set of wheels compared to the prototypes seen previously. These particular rollers incorporate larger, thicker spokes versus to the thin multi-spoke design seen on earlier prototypes. The spokes end in a stylized geometric design around the outer rim. The finish, however, is a familiar silver color.
With regard to exterior siding, the 2025 Cadillac XT5 will be about the same size as the current model. That said, the cabin space will be completely overhauled, incorporating a new digital display stretched across the dash into the center stack. The interior design will once again draw inspiration from the refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4, but with a few unique tweaks to the screen layout to differentiate the two models.
Back in the U.S., the current XT5 will carryover unchanged for the 2024 model year.
