Cadillac debuts the all-new XT5 crossover a week before the LA Auto Show (pictures)
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is the automaker's replacement for the outgoing SRX. This all-new midsize crossover includes a whole host of upgrades, from a lightweight chassis to a whole host of newfangled technology.
The XT5 is the first Cadillac crossover to use the brand's new taxonomic structure. All crossovers will start with XT, and its number will denote its size and position relative to other vehicles in the lineup.
The XT5 features several styling cues present on other late-model Cadillacs, including vertically oriented taillights and a headlight design with LED running lamps that nearly connect with the fog lights below.
Opt for the 20-inch alloy wheels, and you'll also pick up Cadillac's continuous damping control, which improves ride quality by monitoring and adjusting the car's suspension to better match road quality.
The XT5 will come with a variety of optional safety features, including blind-spot monitoring (shown here), full-speed adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, automatic parking assistance and forward collision warning with automatic low-speed braking.
