Cadillac XT5 Buyers Guide

Budds’ Guide to the Cadillac XT5 in Oakville, Ontario

The term versatile is often thrown around quite loosely, especially when it comes to the automotive world. If you were to take the word of most manufacturers, every one of their vehicles offer peerless versatility—combining comfort, space, and excellent performance. However, there are few manufacturers out there that can match Cadillac’s history of unbridled performance and unparalleled luxury. A relatively new model, having debuted in 2015 before releasing to the public in 2016, the Cadillac XT5 (Crossover Touring 5) harnesses the brand’s heritage for a truly exceptional and versatile driving experience.

A compact crossover big on luxury, the Cadillac XT5 offers generous seating for five alongside intelligent design that creates a wealth of reconfigurable cargo options. That same innovative design extends to the exterior of the XT5, creating an undeniably stylish vehicle with the aerodynamics to match. This is as true of the 2020 Cadillac XT5, as it is of the 2017 Cadillac XT5 introduced to consumers around the world. This is a vehicle that, despite its relatively young history so far, is set to stand the test of time. While Budds’ Chev in Oakville, Ontario is your source for the best in Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC, they’re also the premier destination in Ontario to purchase a pre-owned Cadillac XT5. Read on, and learn more about the Cadillac XT5 and how it has evolved over the years!

Impressive Performance

One area in which the Cadillac XT5 has not changed much over the years is its performance—which is as impressive today as it was in 2016. A 3.6L turbocharged V6 gives the XT5 a hefty dose of power, to the tune of 310 horses and 271 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission was found in model years 2017 to 2019, with the 2019 version accelerating from 0-60 mph in as quick as 6.4 seconds (in the front-wheel drive model). For 2020, Cadillac upgraded the XT5 to a 9-speed automatic transmission offering an estimated 9.4 L/100 km on the highway (in the all-wheel drive model). The 2020 version of the XT5 is the first to offer an option in the engine department, with a 237 horsepower 2.0L choice for those looking for a more economical ride.

While the Cadillac XT5 has yet to undergo a full model revamp, it has seen a variety of refinements over the years:
