Cadillac XT5 (2016) Photo & Video
The successor of the crossover Cadillac SRX, called XT5, has celebrated its world debut November 9, 2015 at the auto show in Dubai, but its pre-premiere screening took place another several months before in New York Fashion Public School building.
Externally Cadillac XT5 looks beautiful and vigorous: massive shield grille with double chrome struts, sports bumper and stylish headlamps with vertical stripes of LED running lights and a raised bumper with two exhaust “trapezoids”.

Stylish multifunction steering wheel with four spokes and a wooden plate on the hub hides the uncluttered instrument cluster with analogue digitization with a color “display”, and the elegant central “tide” of the front panel flaunts with a large screen of infotainment system and handsome block of “climate” with touch control.
Decoration materials in the interior of Cadillac XT5 fully comply with its premium spirit – expensive plastics, upscale leather inserts of natural wood and aluminum. For the convenience of front seat passengers there are comfortable heated seats with strong profile and electric adjustments. In the second row of seats installed a triple sofa with adjustable angle of backrest and the ability to move along the interior.
For Cadillac XT5 is available with two petrol engines: the basic unit is an aspirated V6, combining aluminum cylinder block, a system of “start / stop”, mounted in the cylinder head intake manifold and the function of two cylinders’ deactivating. With the working volume of 3.6 liters it generates a maximum of 310 horsepower and 366 Nm of torque.
The alternative to the “big” motor is a 2.0-liter “turbo-six” unit with direct fuel supply producing 270 “horses” and 353 Nm rotational rod. Both power units are combined exclusively with the 8-band automatic transmission electronically controlled broadcasting entire torque to the front axle.
