Specs at a Glance

Only two years into production, the XT5 has garnered attention as the best-selling Cadillac model: both in the United States and worldwide. The 2019 model year presents four trims for the luxury midsize crossover. Two of them, the Luxury and the Premium, are considered the mid-range models.

High Performance In the City and On the Highway

Under the hood of the 2019 Cadillac XT5 is a 3.6-liter V6, which generates 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. It includes automatic stop/start technology to cut down engine idling, and it is paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive, which optimizes fuel economy at an estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, is standard. However, if you want to greatly improve all-weather drivability, go with the all-wheel drivetrain.

What are the Differences in the Exteriors?

The front fascia of the 2019 Cadillac XT5 Luxury features automatic on/off halogen headlamps, which come with IntelliBeam technology, which automatically turn its high beams on or off depending on the amount of outdoor light. On top of the vehicle are a power sunroof and bright-brushed aluminum roof rails, and flanking the front doors are body-color heated power-folding mirrors with auto dimming on the driver’s side. A spoiler is placed above the power liftgate for improving aerodynamic performance and sports-like style.

The Luxury rides on 18-inch bright machined-faced aluminum wheels with light argent accents. If you go with the Premium Luxury trim, Cadillac, will replace the halogen bulbs of the headlights with brighter and longer-lasting LEDs, add illumination on the door handles and cornering lights on the front fascia, and replace the 18-inch aluminum wheels with 20-inch Sterling Silver-finished ones.

A Variety of High Tech Features for 2019

The 2019 Cadillac XT5 provides seating for up to five people. Standard cargo space is measured at 30 cubic feet of cargo space, although you can fold down the rear seats to expand it to 63 cubic feet. At the front are 8-way power-adjustable seats with 2-way power lumbar support, heating ability, and a 2-position memory system for the driver’s side, and they both face a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel.

On the Premium Luxury, the front seats can also be cooled. Standard comfort and convenience features on the Luxury include keyless entry, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a garage-door opener, wireless charging ability, a 5.7-inch color driver information display, an eight-speaker Bose audio system, voice recognition technology, four USB ports and an auxiliary input jack for hooking portable media devices, smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a three-month SiriusXM Radio subscription, and the OnStar communications system.

At the Premium Luxury level, the XT5 is upgraded with tri-zone automatic climate control and a 14-speaker Bose surround-sound system. For safety, the 2019 XT5 have seven airbags, StabiliTrak (for electronic vehicle stability control and traction control), all-wheel anti-lock braking, a rearview camera with front and rear park assist, LED daytime running lamps, lane change alert with side blind zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and Teen Driver technology to monitor and take corrective action with teenager driving habits. Also expect a driver’s awareness package, which includes the aforementioned IntelliBeam technology in addition to other features such as a following distance indicator, low-speed forward automatic braking, front pedestrian braking, forward collision alert, safety alert seat technology, and lane keep assist with lane departure warning.
