Cadillac XT5: The New CUV on the Block

2017XT5When you see this CUV, you are going to want to own it…immediately.

Cadillac spared no expense in designing and manufacturing the XT5. It is like entering an exclusive private club, with luxury and comfort everywhere you look from the back support of the front seat to the leg room of the back seats (which also slide and recline), a built-in WiFi system, and a rearview camera with a heads up display on your rearview mirror, and an optional rear-seat DVD entertainment system.

Loading cargo is unbelievably simple. If your hands are full, you can open the rear hatch by waving your foot at the sensor.

The standard power plant is a V6 engine (with over 300 horsepower), coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The EPA rates the XT5 with a gas mileage of 19 mpg/city and 27 mpg highway. It even has a cylinder shutdown system that puts two of the cylinders on standby if the power of all six is not required.

You have the option of trading the front-wheel drive to all-wheel drive – with a twin-clutch system, which allows 100 percent of torque to be transferred to either the front or rear wheels… and you can adjust the suspension to Snow/Ice, Sport Driving, or Touring. Other options include lane keep assist, front pedestrian alert, automatic braking, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and automatic park assist.

The Benefits of the New Cadillac XT5

2017XT5Cadillac is a company with a long track record of proven success. Having been around for generations, they have churned out car after car with quality, safety, affordability, and reliability. The Cadillac XT5 is only the latest model in this lineage. The XT5 has an entirely new platform that completely separates it from the pack. The new chassis leads to a much more space efficient and lighter model. The XT5 is almost 300 pounds lighter than the SRX, the model the XT5 is replacing. The XT5 is also far lighter than the Audi and Mercedes Bens of similar classes. This allows the XT5 to have more agility and be more dynamic on the road. Furthermore, the engine has a transverse structure. This allows the engine to deliver power to either the front wheels or all-wheel drive, depending on the model.

While the model is lighter, the XT5 maintains the qualities that made the SRX one of the best selling cars for years. The XT5 still maintains the space, durability, and safety crash performances of the SRX. The company even said that the XT5 saves weight with “no compromise to body rigidity or crash performance.” The wheelbase is 112.5 inches. This is two inches larger than the SRX and adds 3.2 inches of legroom for passengers in the rear sets. The rear seat even reclines and slides back and forth, a new feature from the SRX.

Without a doubt, this is one of the top crossover options out there. The benefits and features are hallmarks of Cadillac’s commitment to delivering safe cars with the best features available. See for yourself with a visit to Les Stanford Cadillac!
