    Only 235 hp from the new 2.0T???? Hopefully that's a typo and it is really 335. Unless they are going to go the BMW route and start understating the hp. I just scanned through all 40+ pages and only the one engine and 235 hp in multiple places, no other engine offered. WTF. 3,700 lbs in its lightest configuration with 235 hp is going to be kind of slow.... I'm disappointed. I really hope this is not true.

    Good that they haven't abandoned sport for the XT4, which has been left out of the XT5.

    At least they learned about the back seat and will have class leading space.

    I'm sure it's a base detuned version of the new engine and we'll see a lot more powerplants. Ordergude also does not include Platinum and VSport trims.

    So dimension are
    Lenght 4599 mm (181.o6 inch)
    Width 2120mm (83.46inch)
    Wheelbase 2779mm (109.40 inch)
    Passanger volume 2868.8 l (101.3 cu. ft.)

    That is around somewhere between X1 and X3 in size right?

    If it goes against BMW X1, BMW start with even lower HP (basic version here has 185 HP, and i see in USA it has 228 hp). I assume this is a base engine and later there will be more powerful versions.

    It's targeting the NX. It's dead on dimensionally, the motor is a carbon copy, and the weights are slightly better.

    It doesn't look like it's getting much of anything NEW besides new styling.

    Cadillac Connected Access with 10 years of standard
    connectivity which enables services such as, Vehicle
    Diagnostics, Dealer Maintenance Notification, Cadillac
    Smart Driver, Marketplace and more
    Most interesting bit of the release. They also mention mini umbrella holders for front and rear, do they just mean door pockets?

    LEDs are standard.

    Luxury/Premium Luxury/Sport is interesting.

    In the US it's a dead ringer for the other FWD cars in its segment, which "compete" with the X3, Q5, GLC, etc. It's longer than the X1, Q3, and GLA, and substantially.

    Yeah. That's pretty disappointing. It makes the Oscars commercial look like empty hype. They made it sound as if something groundbreaking was coming. Instead, it sounds very -- meh.

    I'm going to do, perhaps, the unpopular thing and reserve judgement on the motor(s). The exterior dimensions are interesting though. If they really are aping Lexus with this thing, it may be a good thing. Remember it has worked out rather well for the SRX and XT5 as they have stayed very close to the Lexus RX formula and have enjoyed very strong sales.

    We should also remember that they have, arguably, been selling better BMWs for years now! I think the CT6V is proof at least of their pursuit of that praise. So, put another way, Cadillac will soon be the place that you can buy a better BMW sedan and better Lexus crossover!

    Boy you guys kill me. Did you really think this was going to have 400hp? Everybody just take a second and take a deep breath. This is not a sports car or sports sedan or sports cuv. What is important is the design both inside and out, the materials used, the quality of the entire package, features features and features. As far as the power output, its competitive with its segment(nx, qx30, xc60, q3,x1).
    Bring back Pontiac
