2017 Cadillac XT5 Gets First Video Teaser, Official Photos.
September 10, 2015
By: Dan Mihalascu

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.

The Macan and Evoque are everywhere in Shanghai. Lots of Cayennes, Range Rovers, Touaregs, and X6s too. I see few MB crossovers except for that dinky I-forget-what-it's-called-hopped-up-Outback/AllRoad-style-thingy. There are a decent number of SRXs, but they really are starting to look dated and blend in. I'm even pleasantly surprised to be noticing more and more MKCs and the odd MKX. I hope they have the XT5 on high priority for China, because the market is begging for luxury SUVs.

Oh, and they're not super common yet, but the DS CUVs look fantastic. And they have awesome boutiques, only matched by Lincoln in China right now. Haven't spent much time in the German showrooms, but the few I have seen are nice, but nothing special. And the only two Cadillac showrooms I have been in are pretty low-budget. They've been established here for a while, and I think it's time for a facelift. They just look a bit worn and dated, same as many in the US.

I know you're being sarcastic and all, but a lot of the so-called "hipsters" in San Francisco are techies. And guaranteed, they make at minimum $120-150,000 with stock options upwards of $300-500K.

They can afford it.
All of the other hipsters are working at a coffee shop or used clothing store and certainly can't afford a Cadillac. Or any car. And don't want one. So yeah, there's a subset of that market to target, but lets not get carried away with targeting an audience that specific.
Can it.

I just made a coffee pun.
Did'java good time coming up with that one?

Careful kiddo, I can go all night long...
I had coffee made from beans crapped out by a Civit cat in Indonesia this summer. I think they call it Lowak coffee. Apparently people pay a fortune for it. It tasted like coffee.
It's about $20-40/cup in SF.
Wish I'd brought a thermos of it home, instead of a "I went to Indonesia and all I brought home was this stupid T-shirt" t-shirt...

Oh, I already made a pun thread, do you want to FOLGERS into mine? I see a ray of sunshine here; ARABICA'use I thought I was the only one who liked puns! Just give me a 'Yay Bob' (not a 'NABOB'!), and we can really have some fun!
