The first information about the second-generation 2023 Cadillac XT5 have just came out, and we can expect redesigned SUV to appear next year. The current generation of the Cadillac XT5 is aging fast and the manufacturer is preparing to refreshed it for the following year. Launched for the first time four years ago this model is more and more popular since, but the competition are tougher every year.
GM claims that the next XT5 will not be all-electric, considering that this task has been already left for the Lyriq model. Instead, this SUV will get an updated C1 platform, very appropriately called C1-2. From what we know, the manufacturer will probably carry over base engine, while optional engine will either be the familiar 3.6-liter V6 or the turbocharged 2.7-liter inline-four.
2023 Cadillac XT5 Facelift
The new 2023 Cadillac XT5 is attractive and we like its massive grille. For our opinion, the XT5 is one of the most completed SUV. It comes with roof rails as standard, finished in bright brushed aluminum if you go for Luxury and Premium Luxury trims, while black rails are available on the Sport one. The Sport trim also has body-colored door handles and more attractive 20-inch alloy wheels.
The new Radiant package will be available again with a chrome-finished 20-inch alloy wheels and shinier grille. Onyx package is perhaps the most favorite because it has a gloss black exterior elements and alloy wheels.
What’s New Inside?
Inside, buyers will get a maximum space for their money. The new 2023 Cadillac XT5 has one of the longest wheelbases in its class. Thanks to that it offers plenty of rear legroom/headroom, and also a generous cargo area. For 2023, the manufacturer will make cabin more comfortable and quieter, and it will add some high-quality materials. In general, everything has been put together well. Behind there is an luggage area of 30.2 cubic feet that can expand to 63 cubic feet when the seats are folded down.
In terms of technology, the XT5 will feature an updated 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, natural voice recognition, satellite radio, four USB ports, Wi-Fi, and an 8-speaker Bose audio system.
2023 Cadillac XT5 Engine Specs
Under the hood, the 2023 Cadillac XT5 will likely to come with the same base engine. It uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 237 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft of torque. Alongside, we expect the new model to also offers some optional.
According to the many reports, we can expect either a familiar 3.6-liter V6 or the new turbocharged 2.7-liter inline-four. Probably, both units will come standard with a fuel-saving stop/restart function to save gasoline while idling. We also expect all engines to be connects with a 9-speed automatic transmission.
2023 Cadillac XT5 Price, Release Date
The new 2023 Cadillac XT5 will definitively cost a slightly more than before. The current entry level model begins at $43,995, plus a destination charge. Moreover, if you go for the top Sport trim, with a V6 and all-wheel drive as standard, price will significantly jump to $55,895.
Loaded up with options, this SUV can easily touch $66k. The Volvo XC60 is the closest rival and it starts at about $41k. In the same ballpark are also models such as the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.
