2017 Cadillac XT5 Release Date, Price
Cadillac plans on refurbishing its entire lineup in coming years, and after CT6 sedan which was already introduced, next one could possibly be 2017 Cadillac XT5. Mid-size crossover comes as a replacement for SRX.
2017 Cadillac XT5 Exterior and Interior
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is much more dynamic-looking than its name suggests. Just like the SRX it replaces, there are many slashes and creases on the exterior. The XT5 additionally sports a extra conventional grille with Cadillac’s new wreath-less crest badge, and headlights with the same LED daytime running-light jowls previously seen on the CTS sedan.
The interior, the 2017 Cadillac XT5 will get the Rear Camera Mirror system previously shown on the CT6. This permits the driver to stream video from a rear-mounted camera to the rearview mirror, offering a clearer view with fewer obstructions, Cadillac says. The camera view effectively “removes” obstacles, just like the rear pillars, that usually limit the view through a standard mirror. Other tech options include built-in wireless phone charging, the built-in Wi-Fi hotspot that’s standard on most General Motors automobiles (separate data plan required), an optional head-up display, and LED inside ambient lighting. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto should both be available by the point the XT5 goes on sale. Cadillac will even provide a Platinum mannequin with fancier exterior and interior trim, in the vein of the present Escalade Platinum.
2017 Cadillac XT5 Engine Specs
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 will also include a new powertrain, as it would feature Cadillac’s newest 3.6-liter V6 engine that can produce 310 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. This engine may also have Active Fuel Management, which is able to shut down two of the six cylinders when the crossover doesn’t need full power. Dealing with shifting duties will probably be a new eight-speed auto transmission that can deliver power to the front wheels as standard or to all four wheels by means of a new “twin-clutch” all-wheel-drive system that delivers as much as 100 percent of the torque front to rear and side to facet.
2017 Cadillac XT5 Release Date and Price
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 will start hitting showrooms in the spring of 2016, however the release date no set yet. Pricing remains unknown right now, however we suspect an increase over the SRX’s $37,605 base price.
