2022 Cadillac XT5: Luxury in a Compact SUV
The 2022 Cadillac XT5 fits Escalade-level luxury and technology into a smaller package.
The 2022 XT5 is Cadillac’s flagship SUV that features handsome and upscale exterior styling and a well-equipped quiet interior cabin. The interior is also spacious with plenty of room for passengers and cargo.
New for 2022, the XT5’s Sport Trim now comes with Brembo brakes with red-painted calipers and a new 20-inch wheel design is available. Other than those small changes, the XT5 receives no updates for the new year.
The XT5 is available in three trim levels; Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport. The Premium Luxury model adequately fulfills the luxury promises with desirable standard features like leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, a hands-free liftgate, wireless charging, and more. A V-6 engine and all-wheel drive are available on all three trim levels.
Front-wheel-drive XT5s with the standard turbocharged four-cylinder earn EPA fuel economy estimates of 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 24 mpg combined. Moving up to the V-6 drops mpg to 19 city, 26 highway, and 21 combined.
Passengers have an adequate amount of space and the materials throughout the interior are deluxe, as to be expected from Cadillac. For 2022, the XT5 received better interior materials, improved ergonomics, and upgraded features such as a new digital cluster. There are plenty of storage spaces throughout the cabin and the easy-to-fold rear seats allow for even more space for cargo.
An 8-inch touchscreen capable of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard and the infotainment system offers intuitive controls including a rotary controller. An updated Bose sound system is now available and there are four USB ports conveniently located throughout the front and rear of the vehicle.
