Crossovers are the current name of the game in the automotive industry. Currently, Cadillac only offers the SRX crossover and the Escalade SUV, but soon, the American carmaker will offer something even better. It is working on a replacement for the SRX, which will be called the XT5.
In June Cadillac confirmed that the upcoming Cadillac XT5 crossover would be arriving in early 2016 as a 2017 model, but now we’re learning even more about this exciting new addition. According to a report from Trunk Trend, the XT5 will come with a trio of engine choices, including a turbocharged four-cylinder as the base, a 3.6-liter V6, and possibly even a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6. Mated to all engine options will be a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. And, it’s possible we may even see a plug-in version of the XT5.
Another exciting possibility for the XT5 is the addition of Cadillac’s SuperCruise. This technology is a semi-autonomous system that controls the adaptive cruise control, lane watching, and emergency braking.
Whatever is in store for the 2017 Cadillac XT5, we should get our first look at it during the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
