The 2022 Cadillac XT5 has had a few updates for the new year and brings good cargo space, a lush interior and a handful of available upgrades to enhance your vehicle even further. Let’s take a look.
The 2022 Cadillac XT5 comes in three trims:
- Luxury: $45,190
- Premium Luxury: $49,915
- Sport: $57,015
The mid-level trim, the Premium Luxury offers great standard features that stand apart from the others. Leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, hands-free liftgate, wireless charging and more.
The XT5 offers two engines and the choice of FWD or AWD: the turbocharged 4-cylinder that produces 237 horsepower and a V6 engine with 310 horsepower. These engine options stack up against some of the XT5’s competitors like the Lexus RX350 and Volvo XC60. In terms of fuel economy, the 4-cylinder will get you 22 mpg in the city and on the highway. The V6 will give you about 19/26. With AWD used on the highway, those numbers will drop to around 29 mpg on the 4-cylinder and 23 mpg on the V6. You’ll be impressed with how quiet the cabin is with the V6 and the XT5’s composure on twists and turns; also deep-rooted control to protect from rolling.
You’ll be impressed with the interior which is entirely upscale and appears to be high-level luxury across all trims. Cargo space is also a pleasant addition with the capacity to hold 10 carry ons in the back or 24 with the back seats folded down.
