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.
