2017 Cadillac XT5 Review, Specs, Release Date

There is a new release coming from Cadillac soon, and we can tell you it will be a good one. The car in question is new 2017 Cadillac XT5 which was prepared for a while and recently we were able to see first pictures of it. This car is reportedly going to be a replacement for their other model SRX. This XT5 is going to be a SUV and it will have two rows of seats. This car is a representation of their desires to become leading company on this segment of luxury cars, and they have put up a lot of effort and good work into it. We think they have a good chance of becoming one of the leading car producers in this field with this car. They have showed us glimpse of it in New York during the fashion show, and it was also photographed in June so we have pretty good idea how it will look like. What we don’t know exactly are the details of the engine and interior, but we have some good guess about it.

2017 Cadillac XT5 Engine and Specs

As for the powertrain for this car, we said previously that we do not have a lot of info about it. However, we know that it will have similar engines to the CT6 and SRX. That means that it will most likely have 3.6 liter V6 engine that was used in previous models. Also, there is a high possibility of 2.7 liter V6 turbocharged engine that would be a nice addition for this car’s engine lineup. For now, there are no diesel engines that will be a part of this car, but some of the sources from the company claim this car will get diesel engines later on in production life. And you know what; they have to do it to be competitive with BMW and Audi which are its main competitors. Engines will come with FWD or AWD which is not yet determined.
