Cadillac XT5

If you want a car that will turn heads no matter where you go, the Cadillac XT5 could be just the car for you.



If you want to make an impression around Chicago, the signature grille and Cadillac crest make a statement with your every arrival. Combine those with the sharp lines and sweeping curves that meet the jewel-like lighting elements, and the XT5 has a style that’s truly moving.

Other attractive features of this beauty include available 20″ aluminum alloy wheels, door handles that illuminate when the car is unlocked and a hands-free liftgate that opens with a simple kicking gesture.

Under the hood

The XT5 is powered by a 3.6L V6 engine that cranks out 310 horsepower and comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Estimated mileage is 19 MPG/city and 26 MPG/highway.


On the inside the XT5 has a rich yet understated feel with its combination of leather and natural wood, accented with elements of aluminum and carbon fiber. The leather-wrapped steering wheel offers both power tilt and telescoping, and heating is also available to enhance your driving experience.

The 40/20/40 folding rear seats can be flattened to give you up to 63 cubic feet of cargo space.


Beauty and comfort in the XT5 cabin are combined with the latest in automotive technology. There’s phone connection with either Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ capability. With these features your XT5 and iPhone are more integrated than ever, allowing you to answer calls or text messages as you drive while listening to your favorite music.


The XT5 comes with an abundance of features to keep you and your passengers safe. These include a Safety Alert Seat that sends a discreet pulse warning the driver of hazards on either side of the vehicle. Also available are Rear Traffic Alert monitors that warn of cross traffic behind you.

Mazda CX-5

On the basic Sport trim, standard features include LED headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, cloth upholstery, the MazdaConnect infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, rearview camera and Bluetooth connectivity.
