The all-new 2024 Cadillac XT5 is coming out soon. General Motors is in the electrification process, but the company didn’t forget about the flagship models. The crossover SUV started a new chapter in the carmaker’s history and the XT lineup is growing. The pioneer in the squad hits the second generation after one big redesign in 2020.
The latest model of the XT5 only got a few new colors. The paint palette will be revisited before the new generation hits the market. The biggest question is if the hybrid engine is going to become available. We doubt it since the GM is going all-electric in all classes. The 2024 Cadillac XT5 EV could be based on the new Lyriq or Celestiq concepts. Both of the platforms are suitable for the crossover SUV.
Under the Hood
The new model is going to keep the same pair of drivetrains. A turbo-four is the base configuration with 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The front-wheel drive system is standard and returns 22/29 mpg. Optionally, you can upgrade it with an all-wheel drive. The fuel consumption is a bit higher with 21/27 mpg on highways and the city. A nine-speed transmission works smoothly.
Another option is a reliable V6. A 3.6-liter displacement is good for 310 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. The gas mileage is cut a bit, but nothing special. A V6 can do 19/26 mpg, or 18/26 mpg with an AWD. The same transmission is a power router. A V6 makes the XT5 more capable of towing. Still, the crossover SUV is not a leader with 3,500 pounds of hauling potential.
2024 Cadillac XT5 EV
Sooner or later, the entire fleet will get an electric drivetrain. Some models are already out, such as Hummer truck and SUV, or Chevy Bolt EUV. General Motors also has many future concepts, and the Cadillac Lyriq is one of the first we can see out. Also, this SUV might serve as the base for the XT5 electric. Still, it is early to talk about the final version and when it will be available. We can’t exclude a debut in 2024, especially if the vehicle starts the new generation.
Redesign and Interior Changes
The second-gen vehicle will deliver huge changes on the body as well. the new look is hard to predict, but the 2024 Cadillac XT5 can be inspired by Lyriq or Celestiq electric vehicles. The company is also thinking about the new XT6 and Escalade. Interesting, the full-size SUV got the V-Series package with a high-performance engine. It is still a far-fetched story, but the XT5 might get a similar upgrade. The Sport model is not enhancing the drive, but only the styling.
Designers are going to revisit the grades of the 2024 Cadillac XT5. We’ll see what kinds of special editions will be out. Currently, we have Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport models. The new trim levels are definitely going to refresh the offer.
2024 Cadillac XT5 Release Date and Price
Fans of the premium SUV are ready for the new generation. But, the company is not releasing details about the vehicle yet. Something is going on, that is for sure. More details will be available as we are approaching the release date. The 2024 Cadillac XT5 should be out in the final quarter of this year.
All these changes will lead to a price increase. Such vehicles now cost around $50,000 in the base form. With all the upgrades, the price will be somewhere between $65,000 and $70,000. The price of the performance model will be even higher and depends on all the upgrades it will bring.
Best Features Cadillac can Offer
The premium SUV is loaded with plenty of advanced options, even the entry-level version. For example, seats are heated and power-adjustable, wrapped in faux leather. Drive modes are there, 18-inch wheels, a power liftgate that can be turned into a hands-free feature. Infotainment is also at the highest level. All the leading services are there – Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (which can become wireless), Amazon Alexa, Wi-Fi hotspot…
Higher trim levels will make the 2024 Cadillac XT5 even more interesting. Seats can be ventilated, and in some cases, even massage is available. A V6 engine makes the ride more fun. Blind-spot improves safety. One of the best possible upgrades is the panoramic sunroof. The best one is definitely the Super Cruise autonomous drive, which can reach the next level and become Ultra Cruise.
