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 either 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, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist are standard. Blind spot warning and rear cross traffic warning is standard on all but base model.

2019 Cadillac XT5 Ratings & Reliability
Cadillac's XT5 luxury crossover is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Despite decent measured acceleration, the XT5 seems lethargic in everyday driving, and the overall 20 mpg we measured is unimpressive. Cadillac's convoluted Cue infotainment system is a little more manageable, but the unintuitive gear selector is maddening. Top versions get a rear-camera system that displays in the rearview mirror. The XT5 handles soundly, though the ride is too stiff unless buyers 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.
