The second-generation Cadillac XT5 is just over the horizon, and while GM currently plans to offer it exclusively for the Chinese market, The General is considering a possible business opportunity to offer the next-gen crossover in North America as well. Either way, photos of the next-gen XT5’s exterior recently leaked online, giving us a clear look at the overhauled exterior. Which leads to ask – is the 2025 Cadillac XT5 hot, or not?
While the upcoming 2025 Cadillac XT5 will introduce an overhauled cabin in addition to a new exterior, we’re focusing on the new exterior for the moment. The overhaul starts up front, where we see a broad, reshaped grille section flanked by revised headlights, the latter of which incorporate a thin upper lighting signature and rectangular lower lights set vertically on either side of the fascia. The two lighting sections are separated by a thin body-colored strip. The lower air intake stretches across the nose, flaring outward at the edges towards the wheels.
Speaking of the rollers, the latest 2025 Cadillac XT5 photos reveal a few different wheel sets and finishes, while between the wheels, we see some black cladding running around the perimeter of the entire vehicle. The window trim is underlined in bright trim work with black upper trim, while both body-colored and black sideview mirror housings are offered. The roof rails are available in both silver and black as well
Viewed from the rear, the 2025 Cadillac XT5 shows us revised taillight housings, with flat, straight lines similar to those seen in the headlight housings up front. A broad piece of trim run across the width of the hatch, while lower in the body, we see a reworked lower fascia and integrated exhaust treatment.
