2020 Cadillac XT5

2020 XT5 Photos
The 2020 Cadillac XT5 is the brand's midsize crossover, positioned squarely between the compact XT4 and large XT6. Despite a somewhat indistinct personality, this five-passenger luxury vehicle has been Cadillac's top-selling crossover since its 2017 introduction, in part thanks to its smooth and quiet ride.

Updating for the 2020 model year gives the XT5 a pair of engine choices, as well as a bolder appearance and a more refined cabin. Standard in Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels, a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine joins the original V-6. A new Sport trim level joins the lineup and comes with V-6 power, while the previous Platinum trim level has been downgraded to a costly option package.

A rotary controller within the console has been installed, to complement the 8.0-inch touchscreen and redundant steering wheel controls. Cadillac also has expanded the list of standard active safety technology, adding automatic emergency braking.

The new 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, working with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive adds $2,000 to the price.

Sport models come standard with all-wheel drive and get a 3.6-liter V-6, which develops 410 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. In addition to an adaptive suspension, Sport versions feature a quicker steering ratio for a sportier feel. The V-6 is also available on Premium Luxury trim as a $1,000 option. Models with the V-6 use the same 9-speed automatic as the turbo-4 editions.

Adding the turbo-4 engine gives the XT5 better fuel-efficiency figures. With front-wheel drive, the XT5 is EPA-rated at 21 mpg city, 28 highway, and 24 combined. All-wheel drive reduces fuel economy to 21/26/23 mpg. The V-6 achieves 18/26/21 mpg with FWD, or 18/25/20 mpg with AWD. Both engines use cylinder deactivation at cruising speeds and run on regular gasoline.

Crash-test results have been admirable, from both the federal government and independent testing agencies. The NHTSA has given the XT5 a five-star overall safety rating, while it received the top rating of 'Good'? on all five of the IIHS' crash tests. However, it failed to earn a Top Safety Pick designation due to its 'Marginal'? headlights.

Standard active safety features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward-collision warnings, active lane control, lane-departure warnings, front and rear parking sensors, and automatic high-beam headlights. A Teen Driver and rear-seat reminder feature also are standard.

The top two trims add blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-change assist. They can also be enhanced by two active safety packages, which add features such as a head-up display, a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, and enhanced automatic emergency braking, which can bring the XT5 to a halt at speeds below 50 mph.
