    GMI Preview: What We Know About the 2017 Cadillac XT5



    The second-generation Cadillac SRX has been on the market since the 2010 model year, but the FWD/AWD crossover is slated to be replaced by the 2017 XT5 early in 2016. This will be the first Cadillac to receive the new naming structure, with all SUV and crossovers aside of the Escalade receiving the XT prefix.

    Recently the XT5 was caught in the flesh for the first time while being professionally photographed on the streets of SoHo in Manhattan. Now we know what the production XT5 will look like, but what about its measurements, features, and other vitals?

    Platform
    The XT5 will use the all-new monocoque C1XX “Chi” platform, which itself is a variation of the equally new E2XX platform that will underpin the next-generation Chevrolet Malibu. General Motors has designed C1XX as a modular platform capable of supporting the XT5 and a stretched version. In fact, rumor suggests we’ll see a long-wheelbase XT5 with three-row seating but, if true, it could be the future XT6. Of course, other platform features include transverse-mounted engine, four-wheel independent suspension, and FWD and AWD configurations.

    Driveline
    There’s been plenty of speculation on what will motivate the XT5. In the running for standard motor is Cadillac’s tried-and-true 2.0T four-cylinder, but the upcoming CT6’s “LGX” 3.6L V-6 – putting out 335 horsepower for the 2016 Camaro – is rumored to eventually appear on the XT5’s option list after it makes its debut in the big sedan. The new V-6 is said to feature a 9-percent gain in fuel economy with regular fuel and should be a natural when paired with GM’s gee-whiz nine-speed automatic. Unconfirmed but sounding properly globally-minded are diesel and hybrid versions. Also unconfirmed is a turbo V-6 – one source says GM has been developing a turbo 2.7L, although a 400-horse turbo 3.0L is slated to debut in the CT6.

    CUE
    The XT5 will be the first recipient of Cadillac’s CUE update, which will feature an improved processor (read: more responsive reactions, voice recognition, navigation, and media play), 8-inch multi-touch screen that will be compatible with Apple CarPlay and, later, Android Auto. Another new convenience that will be appreciated is one-touch control for commonly used features like route cancellation and muting voiced navigations. Says Executive Chief Engineer David Leone, “Cadillac’s product transformation includes continuing upgrades to connectivity and in-car technology. In 2015 Cadillac became the first luxury brand to feature broad use of wireless charging and 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, and now in 2016 we’re moving quickly to enhance phone integration and overall system performance.”

    Super Cruise
    No word when this will appear on the XT5, but Super Cruise should make its debut shortly on one of Cadillac’s upcoming new models. Cadillac claims this semi-automated driving system “is capable of semi-automated driving including hands-off lane following, braking and speed control under certain driving conditions. The system is designed to ease the driver’s workload on freeways only, in bumper-to-bumper traffic and on long road trips; however, the driver’s attention is still required.” Additionally, a new vehicle-to-vehicle communication system is expected to allow similarly-equipped vehicles to exchange information such as velocity, location, and direction to reduce the chance of an accident.

    Assembly
    Once General Motors curtails SRX production in Mexico, production for the XT5 will make a move to GM’s assembly plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee.

    Pricing
    The current SRX starts out at $37,605 with FWD. There have been no hints on pricing as of yet, but at least one source has suggested the XT5 will straddle the $40,000 price point.

    The first official debut of the Cadillac XT5 will take place at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show in November.

    In other words we don't know more than we knew yesterday as far as actual facts. Maybe revise thread to "What we speculate about XT5"

    The new CT6 has the new CUE. That's coming sooner than the XT5.

    Over/Under on how many poor souls perish due to the first Super Cruise accident. I say 5.

    And I think you all know by now that I'm usually all for early adoption. Fascistly so at times... but this just sounds like a terrible idea. On the other hand, all the blue-hairs that will be buying this can't drive anyway. wocka wocka!

    I once drove an old Chevrolet. The radio in that car could be turned on and off with a simple twist and the volume was adjusted by the same knob. Stations were changed by another knob and a choice could be made aurally; eyes stayed looking at the road and surroundings through the windshield and side windows with an occasional glance at the rear view mirror.
    The Chevy was a 1951 model, although I have been informed that this technology had been available even earlier.
    Now we have CUE.

    Texting and driving is extremely dangerous - to the point that it is illegal in many states. Yet now we have tablets for stereo/HVAC/phone controls... Logic FTW...

    The RX 350 was long in the tooth 5 years ago but, like Cadillac, the brand has been able to milk sales.

    What we know, entry level price won't be cheap. Let's hope the interior isn't either.

    I don't understand. The SRX has been out for 5 years so it's not like this is where the hole in Caddy's SUV lineup has been.

    Here is a strange thought Caddy offer the stretch version as standard and the other two brands get the shorter platform.

    How is it that a bunch of foreign-speaking Germans seem to be able to discern what vehicles are desperately desired in a marketplace 7,000 miles away while local, criminally overpaid (Rick Wagoner? Over $100 million in 9 years? Really?) execufools stumble from crisis to crisis? In ten years Audi has introduced 3 new CUVs. Cadillac? None.

    This is criminal incompetence. There isn't adequate punishment available for these passengers on the good ship GM (outside of an Arnold Schwarzenegger moofie):
