Replacing the SRX which was discontinued, 2018 Cadillac XT5 comes loaded with a host of new features all targeted to offer a brand new luxury vehicle aimed to compete with the likes of BMW and Audi. With new powertrain options, XT5 is designed to deliver the best.
2018 Cadillac XT5 – Drivetrain Configuration
The Cadillac XT5 2018 is rumored to be fitted with two new variants of powertrain options. First, there will be a 3.6-liter V6 which can produce more than 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. Fitted with 6/8 speed transmission, this variant will be complimented by another optional 2.7-liter turbocharged V6.
All engine variants come with FWD or AWD. Although 2018 XT5 is not meant to be typically an off-roader, its improved suspension capabilities will not disappoint. XT5 is designed to produce about 18 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
2018 Cadillac XT5 – Immaculate Design
The 2018 XT5 is downright gorgeous thanks to its blend with the discontinued SRX model. An improved chassis has been installed in this vehicle. The vehicle is given complete LED lighting both on the front and rear.
New Cadillac XT5 2018 is comfortable and stylish even from its interiors. The cabin is lined with wooden finish and top quality cowhide leather. In terms of innovative features, XT5 manages to keep up with its Mercedes and Audi rivals but fails to deliver top-notch performance like Porsche.
Adequately spaced leather upholstered seats aim to provide more comfort thanks to the infotainment facilities which include a large touch screen. Regular smartphone connectivity options are available and new Cadillac XT5 certainly does not disappoint in terms of overall build quality which is superb, sources claim.
2018 Cadillac XT5 – Price Range and Release Date
Luxury comes at a price which is to the tune of $40,000. Opposing larger threats to BMW X3, 2018 XT5 is available towards the tail end of 2017.
