2018 Cadillac XT5 review: Our expert's take

What it is: One of the hottest segments in the automotive industry is the luxury crossover category, with every major automaker having a player in this lucrative field. The five-seat XT5 is Cadillac’s entry in this popular class. It's powered by a standard 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive models are available.

A new base trim level with all-wheel drive is now offered.

Car listed has 90,000 plus miles..over fned priced

Great mileage plus luxury. Minus the start/stop for engine (kills life of starter). Comfortable seats with heating elements for cold winter start up. I love the service from the dealership the caddy app is pretty cool


Truly a fantastic and stylish vehicle

We have drove Cadillacs for years. This was our first SUV. We leased it in 2018. We loved it so much we decided to purchase in 2022 at the end of the lease


Love the car but...

We bought this vehicle because the front seats have a lot of room and comfort and also because the back seats fold down flat and the cargo area is larger than competitors. Bonus was the Bose sound system and the attractive styling of the vehicle inside and out. Cons would include: The electronic and GPS systems which are not as good as competitors. The rear window, which gets dirty very easily and has a small wiper. The tire need replacing and we have just over 30,000 miles on the vehicle. The back up lines on the rear view camera (which I love) often don’t appear, but do appear when I put the vehicle in drive. And for me personally, the car dealers I have had to deal with leave a lot to be desired.
