2017 Cadillac XT5 Starts Below $40,000
Price Represents $1,390 Increase Over SRX
The Cadillac XT5 is poised to carry forward its predecessor SRX’s banner as the best-selling Cadillac model. With the announcement of pricing for the redesigned crossover today, we think it will continue to be the brand’s bestselling model. The 2017 XT5, which will go on sale in April 2016, will start at $39,990, including $995 destination. That price represents a $1,390 increase over the starting price of a 2016 SRX. On the top end, the XT5 Platinum, with standard all-wheel drive, is priced from $63,495, including destination. As with all new Cadillac models, the XT5 will feature standard OnStar 4G LTE data capability and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.
All 2017 XT5 models are equipped with a new 3.6L V-6 mated to an eight-speed automatic and cylinder deactivation for improved fuel economy. The XT5 enters an increasingly competitive luxury crossover field, with a redesigned Lexus RX, the new Jaguar F-Pace, and the Mercedes-Benz GLE. With a starting price below $40,000, the XT5 undercuts the Lexus, as well as the Mercedes. The F-Pace starts at $41,985, including destination, with the 2.0L I-4 diesel or 3.0L supercharged gas V-6 priced the same. Production of Cadillac’s best-selling model returns to the U.S., with all U.S.-spec XT5 models built at Spring Hill, Tennessee. The SRX is built in Ramos Azripe, Mexico.
