    Cadillac Introduces Limited-Edition XT5 Sport Package

    Global best-seller shows its dark side and expands portfolio choices with aggressive style.
    Cadillac
    February 7, 2019


    Chicago – Cadillac introduced the 2019 XT5 Sport package today at the Chicago Auto Show — a new look infused with darkened exterior styling elements that complement Cadillac’s signature front, cornering and LED lighting, adding a personalized flair to Cadillac’s global best-selling crossover.

    The XT5 Sport package joins the XT4, which has soared to the top spot in its segment, the recently introduced XT6 and the iconic Escalade to accelerate the brand’s global growth.

    “The new XT5 Sport package harmonizes styling cues from Cadillac’s new Sport models, first launched on XT4 and all-new XT6,” said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. “It gives our best-selling XT5 a dark, aggressive appearance and expands customer choices within our successful crossover portfolio.”

    The new limited-edition Sport package is offered on the XT5’s Luxury and Premium Luxury trims. Its distinguishing elements include:


    • A gloss black grille with Galvano surround.


    • LED headlamps, signature lighting and cornering lamps.


    • Neutral-density (clear) taillamp lenses.


    • Side-assist steps.


    • 20-inch aluminum wheels with Technical Gray finish.


    • Sport pedals.


    • Two interior color choices: Cirrus/Jet Black with Diamond Cut aluminum trim or Jet Black with Diamond Cut aluminum trim.


    The XT5 Sport package is furnished with all of the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims’ respective content, including Adaptive Remote Start, a Bose® eight-speaker audio system, leather-appointed heated front seats (heated and ventilated on Premium Luxury), automatic heated steering wheel and a programmable memory height power liftgate.

    The XT5 also features the Cadillac user experience system1 with an 8-inch-diagonal color touchscreen and available embedded navigation2 (standard on Premium Luxury). Connectivity features also include Apple CarPlay3 and Android Auto4 capability, Cadillac Connected Apps and an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot (includes 3GB/three-month data trial, whichever comes first)5.

    A 310-hp (231 kW) 3.6-liter V-6 engine drives the XT5 and features cylinder deactivation and stop/start technologies. It is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    The 2019 Cadillac XT5 Sport Edition package is $2,995 on the Luxury trim and $1,995 on the Premium Luxury trim. The Luxury trim’s starting MSRP in the U.S. is $49,490 (including destination) and it will be available for ordering in spring. For more information, please visit Cadillac.com.

    I like this. It's a nice option that's reasonably priced and may provide a reason for current XT5 owners to grab a new one when their lease ends.

    Good job, Cadillac.

    Still waiting for GM to "nut up" and offer a true Sport package beyond wheels/stickers (looking at you, Canyon Denali/Acadia Denali...). I guess I should just stop waiting and look elsewhere.

    I just think it would be cool if a "Sport" package had some sport to it.

    I find it sad that some people wish for GM to fail and can't comprehend any good news. A plausible explanation for this kind of behavior is that you have a miserable life so you wish the same to others. Cory Pham, Autoblog Poster

    GM must return its divisions to being interdependent entities within the corporation. Decentralize and free the different divisions talents to foster brand differentiation and customer loyalty.

    I had to laugh when I saw the taillamp lenses were, “neutral density” (clear).

    I wonder if the windshield will now be classified as neutral density?

    Gotta love those office people that think up stupid names.

    That would be nice indeed! Unfortunately, the superbly sporty chassis tuning that Cadillac became famous for in its Alpha and Omega platform sedans is completely missing in Cadillac's crossovers. Blandness defines the driving experience with XT4 and XT5 (and probably the XT6 too).

    But I doubt most customers for crossover vehicles of any brand care about genuine sportiness. It is what it is.

    It's nice but it needs some substance to back up the sport. Wheels and trim tidbits don't cut it, it needs better handling and power to go with the moniker.

    Re: Cadillac Introduces Limited-Edition XT5 Sport Package

    It's nice, but nothing to get excited over. Good package for the brand, but as noted, where's the actual sport?

    Does anyone know if the chassis has limitations? Meaning it can't fit the TTV6 or isn't strong enough to handle the torque?

    Why is this limited edition?

    When everyone mentioned the TTV6 when talking about the Blazer it made we do some research, and it appears that it could fit in the Blazer, and this. With 420HP, and 430lbs/tq that would make the Blazer, and XT5 get up and go. If GM could make the AWD system in both CUV's deliver power to all the wheels at the same time to the ground would be excellent, a easy win for GM. Add some ground affects, larger and wider wheels then we might have something.

    Does this version come with one of those tweed British driving caps that used to be all the rage many years ago?

    I wish it at least had a handling aspect to it.

    That said - I would probably buy it. Looks great.

    If the Aisin 8spd in the XTS can handle the TT3.6 I don't see why they can't make it work with the new 9spd.
