The first-ever 2017 Cadillac XT5 premieres this month at the Dubai and Los Angeles auto shows

Hello New Cadillac XT5 Crossover. Goodbye SRX. In an ongoing expansion effort, Cadillac today unveiled the first-ever 2017 XT5 – or Crossover Touring 5 – a comprehensively upgraded luxury crossover. The emphasis is on lightweight construction increasing driving performance and efficiency, plus adding a new V6 engine with an advanced all-wheel drive system. And of course, what’s a new luxury vehicle without the latest tech: the XT5 finds technology including a rear camera mirror, apple carplay & android auto compatibility, and a new cue system.

Cadillac has worked hard recently repositioning their brand and striving to gain traction with a new, younger (i.e. not your grandpa) consumer market. The 2017 Cadillac XT5 looks to elevate the brand, joining Cadillac’s lineup immediately following the new range-topping CT6 Sedan, as the brand enters a new phase of product growth.

The first-ever XT5 premieres this month at the Dubai and Los Angeles auto shows and begins production in the U.S. and China in spring 2016.

Stay tuned for more info on the 2017 XT5.
