The new 2017 Cadillac XT5 has shown a big indication to come out with the presence of the first spy photos. It is hard to deny that Cadillac has a big plan to refresh all-lineup and after working for the CT6 sedan, they will do all development for this upcoming model. It will be a mid-size crossover to replace the SRX and perhaps it will be revealed at LA Auto Show this year.
Design Spy Photos
With the heavy camouflage in its spy shots, we could find out some hints available. It is quite promising that 2017 Cadillac XT5 is more inspiring than before especially for its body design. The predecessor, SRX has good design and now it will go with more luxurious details. It is more contemporary with the thinner and more upswept headlamps to expect. The grille is more upright and the rear end tailgate is updated with the iconic vertical tail-lights from Cadillac.
Several changes are also added in its cabin. It is possible if this crossover will get some revisions with the all-new materials. Its design is simple but it defines luxurious and spacious feel. There will be natural wood accents instead of Raven Sapele wood trim. For the base model, it has leatherette upholstery while the top trim has full-leather leather seats. The standard feature is eight-inch display and there are some complements including Bluetooth, power outlets, USB ports and navigation will be optional. There is Bose with 8-speaker system or you can choose 10-speaker as the optional. The top trim also has the heated and ventilated front seats, rear seat DVD entertainment with eight-inch screen and Blu-Ray for 2017 Cadillac XT5.
2017 Cadillac XT5 Engine
The standard engine for this mid-size crossover would be the V6 engine and 3.6 liter and therefore the car could be much more different than the previous model. The refreshed engine design and the slightly updated V6 engine would be enough in order to offer the amount of output for up to 308 horsepower and also 265 lb-ft of torque. In addition, buyers could choose another engine in 2017 Cadillac XT5. It could be the smaller V6 turbocharged engine and 2.7 liter. Both of those engines are offered either with front and all-wheel drive. The output will be transmitted via six-speed automatic.
2017 Cadillac XT5 Price and MPG
2017 Cadillac XT5 is supposed to come out with the same fuel economy as the predecessor which could be 17/24 or 16/23 mpg. The price is about $38,000 and the top trim is $50,000 at least. Its strong rivals are Audi Q5 and BMW X3.
