What’s the first priority of a luxury crossover? Well, if you consider the 2017 Cadillac XT5, everything.
Driver and passenger experience is the first priority of the 2017 Cadillac XT5. Even the XT5’s base model delivers first-class comfort, technology, and style. It includes Rear Vision Camera and Rear Park Assist. The interior is crafted and stitched by hand, featuring premium materials like Okapi wood accents. The standard audio system is built and optimised by Bose for immersive sound quality in every seating position. Connectivity is also a major strength for the XT5. Wireless device charging, OnStar 4G LTE WiFi, Bluetooth and voice recognition are all standard. Other standard and available premium comfort features include:
- UltraView Sunroof covering both rows of seating
- Bose audio system is upgradable to 14 speakers
- Semi-aniline full leather seats
But the XT5 will also be as comfortable on the road as you are in the seats.
Performance is also the 2017 Cadillac XT5’s first priority. The 2017’s new engine is a 3.6L V6 with direct-injection, 310 horsepower, and 271 lb.-ft. torque. It’s paired with an automatic eight-speed transmission to improve efficiency and keep the engine at peak acceleration. Add All-Wheel Drive and 20”, polished aluminum wheels; and real time suspension damping, and your XT5 is ready to conquer any terrain from rough pavement to ice. You can also monitor all of your performance and diagnostics with Cadillac’s available head-up display. Finally, the elegant HUD can display crucial information like current speed and remaining fuel. As impressive as the new display is, it can’t take the honour of being the XT5’s most exciting innovation.
Finally, safety is the XT5’s first priority. The Luxury trim level includes Front and Rear Park Assist, Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. This technology gives you improved peace-of-mind when driving and decreases the likelihood of collision. But you can still upgrade to the comprehensive suite of safety technology which delivers an almost supernatural level of road awareness. The Driver Awareness Package includes the following:
- Safety Alert Seat
- Forward Collision Alert
- Following Distance Indicator
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
- Front Pedestrian Detection
- Front Automatic Braking Performance Suspension
- Surround Vision
If you need improved road vision, you can add High-Intensity Discharge headlamps with Adaptive Forward Light. Not only will your headlamps project brighter and further, but they’ll also turn corners with you, lighting up the road ahead. The 2017 Cadillac XT5 also has an available Rear Camera Mirror that streams live HD video of what’s behind you without any obstructions. Needless to say, the XT5 is among the safest SUVs in existence.
With a remarkable array of standard features, the 2017 Cadillac XT5 delivers the luxury you expect from Cadillac while offering the crossover flexibility that’s become increasingly popular with Canadian drivers. To experience for yourself, book a test drive today.
