2020 Cadillac XT5 Ratings & Reliability
Cadillac's XT5 luxury SUV is neither as sporty to drive as its German competitors nor as pampering as a Lexus RX. It's powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine or a new 2.0-liter turbo-four. Both are linked to a nine-speed automatic. With the V6, the XT5 seems lethargic in everyday driving, despite posting decent outright acceleration in our tests. The XT5 handles soundly, though the ride is too stiff for a luxury SUV. The active damping suspension that comes on top-trim versions improves matters a bit. Comfortable front seats, good fit and finish, and a quiet cabin lend the XT5 a luxurious aura. Starting with the 2020 model year, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and lane keeping assistance are standard. Blind spot warning and rear cross traffic warning are standard on all but the base model.

Cadillac XT5 2019
The XT5 is Cadillac's new luxury crossover and replaces the heavy and dated SRX. It's powered by a new 3.6-liter V6 paired with an eight-speed automatic. Despite decent measured acceleration, it feels a bit lethargic in everyday driving. Cadillac's convoluted Cue infotainment system is a little more manageable, but the unintuitive gear selector is maddening. A rear-camera system that displays in the rearview mirror comes on top versions. The XT5 handles soundly, though the ride is too stiff unless you opt for the active damping suspension that comes on top-trim versions. Occupants are treated to a quiet cabin, supportive seats, and impressive cabin fit and finish.
