Upcoming Cadillac XT5 Crossover Spied Once Again

It isn’t confirmed, but we there is talk that the 2016 Cadillac XT5 will be present during the upcoming auto show in New York. An SRX replacement is currently in the works with Cadillac. While wrapped in distorting camouflage and body cladding, the XT5 was spotted while it was undergoing testing raising anticipation for its debut.

The Cadillac XT5 will be riding on General Motors’ new C1XX platform (pronounced Chi), with a new front-wheel drive, transverse-engined platform is offered in regular and long wheelbase configurations – replacing the Lambda and Theta Premium platforms. An excellent feature that will make many happy is the new platform being able to cradle a variety of GM engines including four and six-cylinder motors.

What does all of this mean for the XT5? We’re glad you asked. The XT5 will ride on the “regular” wheelbase of the C1 platform, itself a derivative of the upcoming E2XX architecture that will succeed GM’s ubiquitous Epsilon platform. We expect the SRX’s atmospheric 3.6-liter V6 LFX to carry over to the XT5, with a turbo-charged V6 as well as a plug-in hybrid powertrain to be a possibility.

Shifting duties in the XT5 will be performed by the upcoming nine-speed automatic transmission being co-developed by GM and Ford. GM is responsible for the nine-speed gearbox for front-drive applications, while Ford is taking the lead on the ten-speed unit for rear-drive applications. The XT5 will also offer all-wheel drive as an option.

Stay tuned as we provide you the latest details on the upcoming Cadillac XT5 as we find out more, and check out the spy pics here.
