2017 Cadillac XT5 Gets First Video Teaser, Official Photos.

Here’s another quick look at the all-new 2017 Cadillac XT5, the successor to today's SRX, which will debut at the Dubai and Los Angeles auto shows in November.

Cadillac has released a teaser video called “Parallels: Public School,” in which we can see designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne from New York City’s Public School fashion label as they check out the 2017 XT5. Cadillac has a new fashion partnership with Public School, which will use the car as inspiration for a new clothing line. The partnership will also see the luxury crossover debut at venues around the world with the NYC-based fashion designers.

During a private kickoff event, Public School announced it would debut its Pre-Fall collection on the runway in Dubai, in collaboration with the launch of the 2017 Cadillac XT5. The designers will also create an XT5-inspired capsule collection for the special invited guests at the Dubai show in November.

“This is a new way for two American brands to join forces, share a passion for design and grow globally. For Cadillac, it gives new meaning to being a patron of the arts,” said Andrew Smith, Cadillac executive director of Global Design.

Unfortunately, the video doesn’t show too much: we only get to see close-ups of a seat, a steering wheel and materials used for the new crossover, before the front end of the XT5 surfaces in the final scene. Fortunately, Cadillac has also released some press shots which reveal the shape of the car.

The XT5 is reportedly based on GM’s new Chi platform that is expected to underpin a number of the company’s future crossovers, including the three-row Cadillac crossover to sit under the big, truck-based Escalade.

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 should be available with some of the engines destined for the CT6 sedan and other future models, including the updated version of GM’s 3.6-liter V6.

I really like the direct front and rear. The front is aggressive and the rear has just a smidge of wings to it. Both modern yet references the past. It looks like the only real issue is the sides, where the stubby hood and FWD proportions limit its sheer style. Not that it'll affect sales of course. The rear also looks wide in that picture.

Really want to see the interior.
If you pause the video of the Manhattan flyover @1:04 you can get a glimpse of the dash.
