Notable improvements were made on the safety side, as the upgraded model was equipped with forward-collision warning, low-speed automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assist.
Complementing the rather minor changes to the exterior design, which include a more aggressive engine grille, the facelifted Cadillac XT5 engine lineup now includes a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder paired as standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Using a twin-scroll turbocharged, the engine is rated at 237 horsepower and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The top of the range 3.-6 liter V6 is still rated at 310 horsepower and 367 Nm (272 lb-ft) of torque.
The Cadillac XT5 was offered in four trim levels: base XT5, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum
The base version includes numerous goodies such as automatic headlights, rear parking sensors, keyless go, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, Apple Car Play, Android auto and many others.
The Luxury trims level adds a heated steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, wireless charging, a 14-speaker Bose surround system, blind spot monitoring and the safety features mentioned before.
The Premium Luxury came with 20-inch alloys, adaptive suspension and ventilated front seats.
The Platinum which was sold at around $66,000 included the Driver Assist Package and some unique items – exterior trim, unique interior colors, upgraded leather upholstery. It also included a head-up display and a surround view parking camera.
