    XT5 prototype spotted near GM test center

    It could be a while before your next red carpet event, but there could be a new limousine waiting when you do.

    A prototype of a stretched Cadillac XT5 SUV has been spotted on the roads outside General Motor’s Milford Proving Ground in Michigan by an automotive paparazzo.

    Why use the XT5 to make the limo? I'd think the XT6 or Escalade would be a better candidate due to their wider proportions.

    Just doing a quick dimensions check for vehicle height, whether that matters or not, and the XT6 is 3" taller than the XT5 along with that extra width, which is also 3".

    This is what happens when you eliminate large sedans. Almost as bad as the stretched Lincoln MKT.

    Someone saw XT5 and thought it said XTS.



    (Honestly, when I saw the thread title, I thought it said XTS and was like "yeah? you haven't seen one of these before?"

    This looks ugly. But i guess limos doesn't have to look nice.

    It's such a mule because they'll have to figure out a way to make that bodyside character line join with the added length in the center.

    Middle Eastern dictators are certainly not getting a Cadillac any time soon. Every time I see the XT5 it looks like a bird waiting to be fed.
