Here at Jim Ellis Cadillac, we’re dedicated to providing you with luxurious vehicles that have it all: eye-catching style, thrilling performance, cutting-edge safety tech, and all kinds of comfort and convenience features. If you want all that and more in the body of a compact SUV, then the 2024 Cadillac XT5 should be at the top of your list. This model has all the features you need to have a pleasant drive every time, no matter how far you travel. And there are plenty of ways to configure it so that you can get exactly what you’re looking for in an SUV.
The XT5 has three different trim levels to choose from. Luxury provides all the basics and plenty of extra touches that will elevate your driving experience. Premium luxury goes even further, with more tech features, a wide range of options for interior style, and standard goodies like a heated steering wheel and sunroof. The Sport model has all of the comforts of Premium Luxury while also providing optimal performance with a more powerful base engine and extra equipment designed to give you ultimate control behind the wheel.
Whichever version you choose, you’ll be getting a versatile vehicle that can handle all of your driving needs. The compact body is easy to maneuver on the streets and in crowded parking lots, while the interior is sure to please all kinds of drivers and passengers, with plenty of room left over for cargo. From road trips to errand runs and everything in between, the XT5 is ready to handle any type of drive in style.
When you step inside the XT5, you’ll find a well-appointed interior that’s immediately inviting. The layout of the infotainment setup is intuitive, with controls that are placed to be within easy reach of the driver and plenty of tactile buttons and knobs that let you adjust settings without taking your eyes off the road. The sleek interior looks great on all models but can be elevated further with available premium materials, including genuine leather seats, natural wood trim, and carbon-fiber accents.
Up front, the XT5 features standard heated seats for the driver and front passenger so that you can warm up quickly on a cold day. An eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and six-way power-adjustable front passenger seat are also standard so that you can get your position up front just right. Even more comfort features are available, including a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats to help you cool down, and two-way power lumbar control to prevent back pain on long drives. And don’t think Cadillac has forgotten about the passengers in the back. The second row has available heated seats, independent climate control settings, and plenty of space to stretch out and get comfortable.
If you’ve got cargo in the back instead of people, you can fold the rear seats flat to unlock 63 cu.ft. of cargo volume, making it easy to transport bulky items like furniture. You can also mix and match, thanks to a 60/40 split in the second-row seating. And accessing the back is easy thanks to a hands-free power liftgate that will open automatically in response to a kicking motion, so you don’t have to put your things down on the sidewalk.
The climate control system features an air ionizer that filters contaminants so you can breathe easily. No matter what’s happening outside the vehicle, you won’t have to worry about pollen, dust, or unpleasant odors creeping into the cabin. Dual-Zone Climate control comes standard, and tri-zone is an available option, allowing individual passengers to pick a temperature that works for them instead of making everyone compromise on a single setting. Tech features inside the XT5 help you enjoy every drive, even if it’s just a trip to the grocery store. Bose speakers let your music shine with a rich, deep sound quality. The eight-speaker system provides great audio, and the fourteen-speaker version enhances the sound quality even further for a truly immersive experience.
The XT5’s interior features four USB ports, two 12V power outlets, and an available wireless charging pad, so you can keep all your devices charged while driving. You can use Bluetooth connectivity to pair up to two devices to the vehicle’s system at once. Control your apps using the 8-inch color touchscreen display, controls built into the steering wheel, or voice recognition technology. Thanks to available Amazon Alexa functionality, you can also use voice commands to control your digital assistant on the go.
Staying safe while on the road is a priority for every driver. The XT5 uses a suite of modern driver assistance features to help you stay aware of your surroundings and avoid danger. Many of these come standard across all trim levels, including Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, an HD Rear Vision Camera, Intellibeam Automatic High Beam Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and a Following Distance Indicator.
There are also standard cornering lamps, which let you see better around turns at night. Rear Park Assist detects objects behind you while parking and alerts you if you’re getting too close. There are also features that are designed for families, like Rear Seat Reminder, which helps you remember to check the back before you leave the vehicle, and Teen Driver, which gives you extra tools to help you teach your newly licensed teen how to drive responsibly.
On top of that, there are several other available features that can give you an even more comprehensive view of the environment around you. For instance, the available Rear Camera Mirror lets you switch between the traditional rearview mirror and a camera view that gives you a live feed of what’s behind you. This can come in handy if you have a tall passenger or lots of cargo in the back, obstructing your view out the rear window.
Automatic Parking Assist with Braking takes the stress out of parking in tight spaces. The system can automatically steer in order to get you into a perpendicular or parallel parking space. Rear Pedestrian Alert can also be a helpful tool when parking since it alerts you to people behind you while you’re in reverse. And, of course, the HD Rear View Camera with Guide Lines is also there to give you full visibility and help you park safely wherever you are. For driving at night, there’s an available Night Vision view that uses thermal imaging to detect pedestrians or wildlife that may be lurking outside the reach of your headlights and alert you so you can take action in time.
Getting there can be even more than half the fun, thanks to the XT5’s exceptional performance. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder that delivers 235 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, so you can accelerate with ease and have a thrilling ride. If you want to go even further, you can opt for the 3.6L V6, which is available on the Premium Luxury model and standard on the Sport model. This powertrain can produce 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque, putting even more power at your disposal. Both engines feature a smooth nine-speed automatic transmission with gear range selection and use active fuel management for improved fuel economy.
Not every drive is the same. Road conditions, weather, and more can affect your priorities as a driver, and while you may want thrilling performance at times, you may not require it for simple errand runs. The XT5’s Drive Mode Selector lets you get your settings just right and switch things up as your needs change. Models with front-wheel drive let you choose between Tour mode for everyday driving, Sport mode for improved performance, and Snow/Ice mode for better traction on slippery roads. With available all-wheel drive, you also get an Off-Road mode optimized for uneven surfaces.
If performance is your top priority, then you should certainly consider the XT5 Sport. This model comes standard with the powerful V6 engine, as well as front Brembo brakes, front and rear red brake calipers that improve both performance and style and twin-clutch Sport Control AWD for ultimate control. The vehicle’s systems are tuned to provide faster steering response and a more responsive feel overall. Chassis damping control adjusts your suspension damping up to every five milliseconds as driving conditions change, letting you stay comfortable and enjoy the ride. On top of all that, the Sport model also has exclusive styling touches that project its prowess, like high-gloss black exterior accents and 20-inch 12-spoke wheels with a shiny Pearl Nickel finish.
