    2020 Cadillac XT5 MCE Shown in China Ahead of U.S. Reveal

    Additional interior tech and a new engine for the crossover.

    We spied the lightly refreshed 2020 Cadillac XT5 not too long ago, but now we have official photos via China. Cadillac decided to reveal the mid-cycle refresh of its crossover on that side of the world, so the vehicle you're looking at here is a China-spec XT5. While this may be the case, many of the details unmasked about the vehicle will likely be seen here, too. Cadillac told us it will be able to confirm U.S. specifics in the near future.

    You may be wondering, what's different? Truthfully, there isn't much to the mid-cycle update from a visual perspective. The grille has been swapped for one that better matches all the other grilles in Cadillac's newest crossovers like the XT4 and XT6. Cadillac of China didn't include any photos of the rear for this light reveal. There are significant updates in other places, though.

    At least in China, Cadillac is giving the XT5 its new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine we first saw in the XT4. That engine produces a refined 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. We can't say whether the crossover will or won't keep the 3.6-liter V6 option in the states, but adding the boosted motor won't come as a surprise. Along for the ride is GM's nine-speed automatic transmission that is paired to that four-cylinder.

    The interior looks largely the same, save for the addition of Cadillac's rotary knob to control the infotainment system. This follows suit with other newly-released Cadillacs that allow you to control the system with both the knob and the touchscreen. Another notable interior upgrade is the addition of the rearview mirror camera. Cadillac is clearly set on integrating this technology onto every car it makes, and we certainly don't have any qualms with that. One bit of tech that wouldn't be included for China but may present itself for the U.S. model is Super Cruise. We've been told to expect the driver assistance system to spread throughout the manufacturer's lineup, and the XT5 seems a perfect candidate for the tech.

    Watch out for more details and photos coming soon for the 2020 XT5, as Cadillac will be sharing more specifics on the U.S. version in due time.

    A nice, if barely noticeable update to a decent entry in this class for Cadillac. I'm glad it avoided the dreadful Escala face/cues which would ruin an attractive design.

    Not a fan of the 2.0T in this car, and hopefully it doesn't become the base engine here in the US market. I wish they would add the 3.0TT as an option for it instead.

    They did a decent job with this. I expect it to continue being popular.

    Ok, can someone show me the XT-5's interior and not the XT-6's?

    All teasing aside,what a nice light update.

    Nothing spells young and modern more than that wood on the steering wheel, yikes ! Goes well with the telescope.

    I agree - 3.6L should stay base and 3.0TT should be offered. 2.0T is more suited for XT4 and CT4. Gas mileage will not improve given the size of the XT5.

    Personally I prefer the chrome grill on mine but the refresh is generally ok. I do like the navigation dial for CUE.

    Was talking to my sales lady last week as I just bought out my XT5 lease. She said XT5 is a top 5 vehicle seller for them most months and they sell all 4 GM lines.

    Just curious, were you able to negotiate down the buy-out price of the XT5 lease? Or is it take it or leave it? This is something I've always wondered about leasing (never done it...yet). Thanks for any info.

    It was not negotiable but I did get them to wave a couple of BS fees they initially added.

    Maybe it varies depending on who leases to you. My lease was with the dealer's own leasing company but I remember also back in the day GMAC lease buyouts were not negotiable.

    I bought it out as the new lease offers were not nearly as good and I was happy with the car. Still have 2 more years of warranty anyway.

    Looks much better than the outgoing version and the XT6. My only gripe is no full digital gauge cluster. Should be pretty much standard on all Cadillacs.

    Didn't the XT5 ordering guide come out already showing the 2.0L I4 as the base engine in the US? I'm sure I commented upon it...

    Edit: yep!

    NEW! Engine, 2.0L Turbo, 4-cylinder, SIDI with Automatic Stop/Start (TBD - SAE certification pending)
    1 - Upgradeable to (LGX) 3.6L V6 engine.
