Premium Cadillac Performance

Powering the Cadillac XT5 forward are a pair of impressive engines, delivering robust and efficient performance every time you get behind the wheel. Standard on both the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims is a 2.0L turbocharged engine that gets you 235 horses and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. For an extra edge on the competition, the 3.0L V6 found standard on Sport models, gets you 310 horsepower and 271 lb.-ft. of torque. Along with two incredible powertrains, the XT5 also has numerous standard and available performance features that make for a compelling drive.

Chassis Damping Control

Reading and responding to road conditions on the fly, chassis damping control ensures that the XT5 is operating with a perfectly calculated suspension. This technology reads the road every 2 milliseconds, adjusting the suspension accordingly.

Electronic Precision Shift

At the helm of the XT5’s advanced 9-speed automatic transmission is Cadillac’s Electronic Precision Shift. This system utilizes buttons that you can push and/or pull to shift gears instead of a traditional mechanical connection. Innovative and efficient, you’ll feel at ease every time you switch gears.

Drive Mode Selector

In Ontario, we experience all four seasons and the resulting inclement road conditions. Available All-Wheel Drive XT5 models have the options of Touring, Off-Road and Sport modes. XT5 models with Front-Wheel-Drive setups feature Snow/Ice, Touring and Sport modes. Adjust your vehicle’s performance settings and be ready for the conditions.

Performance Brakes

With the power under the hood of the 2023 XT5, especially with the available V6, you’ll need premium brakes to reel in the XT5’s raw power. Available Brembo® Performance front brakes give the XT5 a true sport feel. Drivers will also look the part, as the XT5 has available front and rear red calipers.
