2021 Cadillac XT5: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - January 20, 2020

Model Preview

Cadillac launched the XT5 back in 2017, and with the 2021 Cadillac XT5 being just the fifth model year, we expect it to roll in as a carryover model. If you’ve already grown tired of its looks, we could see a redesigned version of this luxury crossover in the 2022 or 2023 model year.

As a carryover model, we expect few to no changes to the 2021 Cadillac XT5’s outward appearance. Look for it to carry on with the same bold styling it’s had since debuting, which includes windswept headlights and taillights, long vertical LED accent lighting, a large grille with the newest iteration of the Cadillac emblem, a swoopy roofline, and soft body lines.

Inside, we expect the 2021 Cadillac XT5 to carry on with the same design, which includes a clean and tidy dash with loads of premium materials, including woodgrain trim, leather, and tasteful metallic accents. It’ll also carry on with its classy electronic shifter, flush-mounted infotainment screen, and stylish steering wheel.

Cadillac XT5

We also expect the XT5’s standard equipment to carry on unchanged. If this is the case, it’ll remain very well-equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, a power liftgate, leatherette upholstery, OnStar, and more.

Under the 2021 XT5’s hood, we expect everything to remain unchanged. This would leave it with a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’ll deliver 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Optionally, buyers will be able to move up to a 3.6-liter V6 that pipes in 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will continue to pair with a standard nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive will come standard. All-wheel drive will remain an option.

The current Cadillac XT5 has not been through IIHS testing, nor has it been through NHTSA testing. Though it may get high crash-test scores when it’s all said and done, Cadillac buried the all-important automatic emergency braking high in the trim levels, making it a pricey option. It also has equally costly optional blind-spot monitors, lane-keep assist, and automatic high-beam headlights. We expect all the safety features and ratings to remain the same in the 2021 XT5.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date for the 2021 Cadillac XT5 yet, but we expect it to arrive in the summer of 2020 based on past release schedules.

Pricing is also unconfirmed, but it’ll likely carry on with roughly the same MSRP range as the current model: $45,090-$56,090 (destination fees included).

This luxury crossover will compete with the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.
