The upcoming 2024 Cadillac XT5 midsize luxury SUV is an ideal option if you’re looking for a comfortable and luxury ride. This model offers two spacious rows of comfortable seats and enough room for up to five passengers. For the 2024-year model, the manufacturer will make some changes, and we can expect the new model to be more attractive than ever.
Basically, the design language will be updated with sharper lines, a unique light signature, and a prominent front grille. Definitively, the new Cadillac XT5 will stand out in its class. On top of that, it has a very affordable starting price compared to its competitors like the Lexus RX and Lincoln Nautilus.
Is Cadillac Redesigning the XT5?
The 2024 Cadillac XT5 is one of the few SUVs that’s wearing unique American luxury design language. This model offers an attractive design with a sharp line, a unique light signature, and a prominent front grille. However, as with many models, the look of the XT5 changes a bit depending on how you option it.
The Sport model is the favorite because it comes with a sporty appearance package, which adds more dark accents. In terms of size, the XT5 is in line with Lincoln Nautilus, Land Rover Range Rover Velar, and the 2-row version of the Lexus RX.
The new 2024 Cadillac XT5 will be more luxurious than the outgoing model. In general, don’t expect something significant, because this model will be a carryover. As before, the interior of the Cadillac XT5 will be modern, featuring two spacious rows of seats. The interior design is pleasing to the eyes and the touch. The base trim includes heated front seats, brushed-aluminum trim, Wi-Fi hotspot, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
If you go for the Premium Luxury, you will get an UltraView sunroof, semi-aniline leather seats, premium carpeted floor mats, and more. Also, the safety of this SUV is its highlight thanks to automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, Safety Alert Seat with vibration warning, rear seat reminder, and Teen Driver mode.
2024 Cadillac XT5 Engine Specs
As a model before, the new 2024 Cadillac XT5 should continue to use the same two engines under the hood. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that produces 237 horses and 258 lb-ft of torque. Besides, the manufacturer also offers an optional naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6, which is capable of making 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque.
Anyway, like before, the 4-cylinder is more fuel-efficient, but the V6 is more powerful and fuel hungry. Both engines are equipped with a smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive as standard. All-wheel drive is still optional.

All-wheel drive is an additional $2,000 for the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims. The most similarly priced SUV in its class is the Lincoln Nautilus, and the Lexus RX. Otherwise, German rivals that are much costlier are Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class and BMW X5. The sales of the new XT5 should begin later next year.
