Cadillac can build capable, fun-to-drive sedans. But the brand's SUVs lack the same magic. The Cadillac XT5 is a descendant of the SRX but it’s neither here nor there. Battling a field of worthy competitors, the XT5 isn't as rewarding to drive as a German luxury SUV, nor does it pamper owners like a Lexus RX.
With the uplevel 3.6-liter V6 engine we got 20 mpg overall with the older eight-speed automatic. Power is linear and the engine revs smoothly, but it lacks the effortless motivation afforded by competitors' turbocharged engines, such as the Lincoln MKX's available 2.7-liter V6. The XT5 always feels a bit lethargic. For 2020 a new 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder might actually feel more responsive in daily driving.
