The first details of the next-gen 2023 Cadillac XT5 are finally here, and we can anticipate the remodeled SUV to arrive later in 2022. The present edition of the Cadillac XT5 is aging, and the company is planning to revamp it for the next year. This model, which was introduced for the first time four years ago, has grown in popularity since then, but competition has become stronger each year.
The manufacturer says that the future XT5 will not be all-electric, as this responsibility has already been assigned to the Lyriq model. Instead, this SUV will be built on an upgraded C1 platform, suitably dubbed C1-2. According to our information, the manufacturer will most likely keep the standard engine, while a new optional engine will happen for sure.
Cadillac XT5 Redesign
The forthcoming 2023 Cadillac XT5 is appealing, and we like its huge grille. The XT5 is, in our opinion, one of the most well-rounded SUVs. Roof rails are standard on the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims, and are finished in brilliant brushed aluminum on the Sport model. Black rails are available on the Sport model. The Sport trim adds a couple of body-colored exterior features as well as more appealing 20-inch alloy wheels.
The Radiant package will be offered once more, this time with improvements such as chrome-finished 20-inch alloy wheels and a more premium grille. The Onyx package is one of the most popular since it includes gloss black exterior parts and alloy wheels. We are still waiting to hear more details, but the XT5 SUV is getting some significant cosmetic upgrades.
What we like about this SUV is its spacious cabin. The upcoming 2023 Cadillac XT5 sports one of the class’s longest wheelbases. As a result, it has lots of rear legroom as well as a large cargo area. In 2023, the company plans to make the cabin more comfortable and silent, as well as add some high-quality materials. Everything has been put together well in general. Fold the seats flat and you will get around 63 cubic feet of cargo space.
The XT5 will be equipped with an upgraded 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integrations, an improved Bose sound system, and additional USB ports. There is also new voice recognition, along with the Wi-Fi and the latest safety aids.
New Optional Engine
The base engine in the 2023 Cadillac XT5 will most likely be the same. It has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 236 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque. In addition, we anticipate that the new model will include several optional engines.
According to numerous sources, we can expect either a familiar 3.6-liter V6 or a new 2.7-liter turbo-four unit. Both options will almost certainly come standard with a stop/restart function to save gasoline while idling. We also anticipate that all engines will come with a 9-speed automatic transmission.
2023 Cadillac XT5 Release Date, Price
The price of the all-new 2023 Cadillac XT5 will start at around $45,000. The next-gen XT5 will gain new powertrain option and it will also sport a new design. This model will continue to rival luxury SUVs such as BMW X3 and Volvo XC60.
