The 2018 Cadillac XT5 is back and better-than-ever for 2018. With a handful of new innovations and improvements, you’re bound to be impressed.
The biggest change for the 2018 model year is the XT5’s heated steering wheel. This is included on most trim levels and gives you the ideal combination of luxury and comfort.
The XT5 comes in four different trim levels: Base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum. All trim levels feature plenty of power, especially the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers 310 horsepower. All-wheel drive comes standard on the Platinum trim level while an advanced front-wheel drive system welcomes you on other trim levels.
Style is unbeatable in the 2018 XT5, starting with features like swept-back headlights and bold LED running lights. On the inside, wood accents can be found throughout your cabin, making for a stylish interior.
Something else that’s new for the 2018 XT5 is a lighter body. The new XT5 has lost a few pounds, which gives it a sporty feel and more agility on the road than before. A fully independent suspension gives you extra help on the road, too.

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 officially replaced the Cadillac SRX, currently standing as the only crossover in the revered luxury brand’s lineup. While more crossovers are slated for release in the coming years, the Cadillac XT5 arrives with more features and a better design than the model it replaced. Here’s a closer look at how the Cadillac XT5 compares to the Cadillac SRX.
Like the Cadillac SRX, the Cadillac XT5 features seating for up to five passengers in a spacious cabin designed for the modern passenger. It’s also available in front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations.
However, many of the changes come down to what lies under the hood.
The Cadillac XT5 carries an upgraded version of the SRX’s standard engine. The new 3.6-liter V6 engine offers 310 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. That’s two more horsepower and five more lb-ft of torque than the Cadillac SRX offered.
The Cadillac XT5 also comes equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission with Electronic Precision Shift. The now-discontinued Cadillac SRX featured a standard six-speed automatic transmission.
The Cadillac XT5 features a lightweight architecture that drops 165 lb. when compared to the weight of the Cadillac SRX.
