What You Will Like

The XT5 is a mid-sized crossover vehicle starting at just under $39,000. At this price point it competes with other luxury crossovers such as the BMW X5 and Audi Q5, both of which it handily undercuts in price. The Cadillac XT5 creates a refined driving atmosphere with its swanky interior and smooth revving V6 engine. Looking as expensive as cars costing far more than it, the XT5 is a fantastic value for those needing both space and luxury with a little more ground clearance than what a traditional luxury car can provide.

What's New For 2017

The Cadillac XT5 is a brand new car for 2017, replacing the Cadillac SRX as the midsized crossover in Cadillac's lineup. The automaker went back to the drawing board with the XT5 and as the name would imply, it's a whole new vehicle, sharing virtually nothing with the car it replaces. While designing a new car is a lot of work, starting from step one can yield some pretty serious dividends. Despite being roughly equal in size to the vehicle it replaces, the XT5 is nearly 300 lbs lighter, improving not just acceleration and handling, but fuel economy as well.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles

  • Roadside Assistance: 6 Years / 70,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is a crossover that takes the place of the SRX. Rather than a dramatically different new model, the XT5 is an evolutionary replacement. Following on the heels of the CT6 sedan, it’s one leg of a broader leap forward for the company. The SRX was a sales success, so the XT5 is a crucial replacement for Cadillac.

Roughly identical to the SRX in size, the new five-passenger Cadillac XT5 weighs about 278 pounds less, and performs better. Wheelbase is about two inches longer. Track width has gained an inch, pushing the front wheels a bit outward.

Cadillac XT5 premium midsize crossover can be compared with the Lexus RX, Acura MDX, Lincoln MKX, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, Audi Q5.

As its name suggests, the Cadillac XT5 is packed with technology. Detail work is better than ever. As in the CT6, one prominent goal was use of lighter-weight materials and methods. Aiming at younger shoppers, designers turned to more voluptuous design, as well as developing more extravagant interior appointments.

Beneath the hood, a new 3.6-liter V6 engine develops 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque, delivered to an 8-speed Aisin automatic transmission. Even though the transmission is responsive and yields well-damped shifts, the XT5 never feels like a performance machine. Unlike some of its competitors in the midsize crossover category, the XT5 bears no relationship to any sports sedan.

Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive available on all but the base model. In the new AWD system, dual clutches can send up to 100 percent of torque output to either the front wheels or the rear.

Active-safety features come in two option groups. A Driver Assist package ($2,340) for either the Premium Luxury or Platinum model includes full-speed adaptive cruise control, low-speed automatic braking with pedestrian protection, automatic rear low-speed braking, automatic collision braking, and advanced park assist. Those upper models come standard with a Driver Awareness package that includes forward collision alert, lane keep assist, front pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, and automatic high beams, optional ($770) on the Luxury model.

Like the CT6 sedan, the XT5 offers a new Rear Camera Mirror system. Instead of displaying the view from a rear-mounted camera on a video screen, it appears within the rearview mirrors, in high resolution. Cadillac claims it digitally removes obstacles, improving the view by 300 percent. Not everyone is fond of this feature, but the available surround-view cameras and color head-up display are helpful.


Cadillac XT5 comes in standard, Premium, Premium Luxury, and Platinum trim levels. XT5 ($38,995) comes standard with front-wheel drive, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bose eight-speaker audio, power liftgate, adaptive remote start, OnStar with 4G LTE, and 18-inch wheels. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.

XT5 Luxury ($45,890) includes a double-size sunroof, heated steering wheel and front seats, front/rear park assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. All-wheel drive ($2,495) is available. XT5 Premium Luxury ($52,890) adds Bose 14-speaker Studio Surround Sound and ventilated front seats, and is available with all-wheel drive ($2,495).

XT5 Platinum ($63,495) comes standard with all-wheel drive and includes a hands-free liftgate, head-up display, surround-view camera, Rear Camera Mirror, heated outboard rear seats, tri-zone climate control, and 20-inch wheels.


In contrast to the sharply creased, chiseled look that identified Cadillacs a decade ago, the XT5 has a softer, curvaceously organic appearance. A few elements of the past remain, such as vertical-style lights and a bold grille.

Overall, the look may be considered less assertive, yet more attractive and even somewhat flamboyant. Highlights include crisply-shaped fenders, abundant brightwork, and a front end that stands out with its dramatic LED lighting.


More sophisticated than the SRX, the Cadillac XT5 gives rear passengers three additional inches of leg space. Yet, headroom is seriously tight, resulting from upright seats and an arching roofline, not ideal for adults riding in the rear.

Front seats are excellent: a bit firm, with ample thigh support, helped by extendable cushions. The split back seat folds flat and also slides fore/aft several inches, to allow extra space for either occupants or cargo. A ratcheting fence helps keep grocery bags and small items from sliding around the cargo area.

Cabin details impress, with meticulous detailing and craftsmanship. Cut-and-sewn leather trim contrasts with a choice of woods, aluminum, or carbon fiber. Tasteful and attractive, the interior rivals top luxury models from Japan and Germany. The dashboard has a horizontal aspect, with a central touchscreen.

Cadillac’s CUE interface has been upgraded, using a swifter processor, but it can still frustrate users. Wireless phone charging, wi-fi via a 4G LTE hotspot, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included.

Driving Impressions

Boasting a strong and responsive V6, the XT5 promises fine body control and confident handling, with less body leans than the SRX. Flat spots, which occurred midway through the rev range of the previous engine, are gone completely with the new V6.

The 8-speed automatic has even-spaced ratios and yields precise shifts. Even when traveling up a long grade, the powertrain settles swiftly into an appropriate gear for the occasion. Platinum models include ZF’s continuous damping control, which minimizes harshness and undulations that might enter the cabin.

Rather than a shift lever, the XT5 gets Cadillac’s first shift-by-wire setup, which involves more button-pushing than might be expected. Pauses between each shift could be an issue when parking, especially when in a hurry, or trying to rock the vehicle if it gets mired in snow.

Cadillac’s all-wheel-drive system is intended for rain, snow, or icy roads, but it increases stability even in dry weather. The twin-clutch configuration lets up to 100 percent of power be sent to either front or rear wheels.

Electric power steering feels settled in highway driving, precise and nicely weighted for urban maneuvers. Sport mode affects not only steering feel, but throttle sensitivity and transmission response, but the difference isn’t substantial. Although the ride is quiet and well-controlled, engine sound can be a little too noticeable.

Fuel-efficient for its class, the 2017 Cadillac XT5 is EPA-rated at 19/27 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. With all-wheel drive, the EPA estimate drops to 18/26 mpg City/Highway. Real-world driving should yield similar figures. Active Fuel Management lets the engine run on four cylinders during steady cruising, while a Stop/Start system can shut it off at stoplights.


The all-new 2017 Cadillac XT5 is a superb premium midsize crossover, with a comfortable, nicely detailed cabin, responsive power, quiet, sophisticated ride and handling, and available all-wheel drive.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
