Cadillac Launches First-Ever XT5 Luxury Crossover At Middle East Dealerships

The first-ever Cadillac XT5 will arrive to Cadillac dealerships in the Middle East at the end of June, continuing the brand’s product-driven growth. XT5 was unveiled in Dubai last November, and enters the strongest category in the luxury automotive space, the midsize luxury crossover segment, where Cadillac has consistently been a consumer favorite.

“The arrival of this sophisticated new crossover positions Cadillac well, as XT5 enters on of the most popular segment in the regional luxury market,” said Cadillac Middle East managing director, Felix Weller. “It’s pivotal to our ongoing growth, which is why we’ve developed XT5 from the inside out to provide customers more space, more technology, more luxury and more efficiency.”

XT5 pricing begins at $45,405*; the highest level XT5 Platinum is priced from $65,743*. All-wheel drive is standard on all trims in the region.

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 will be powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine. With peak output of 310-horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. (366Nm) of torque, the new V6 uses variable valve timing for strong response and smooth power delivery, maintaining optimum efficiency regardless of power demand. This engine has been completely redesigned and features Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation technology, which allows the engine to seamlessly and automatically switch to a fuel-saving 4-cylinder mode under low or moderate loads.

A new 8-speed automatic transmission is standard for the XT5, which also debuts Electronic Precision Shift – the first electronically controlled transmission shifter application in a Cadillac. The XT5 also features Stop/Start technology, which automatically stops and starts the engine when the vehicle is at rest in traffic stops, saving fuel and reducing emissions, while contributing to the serene character and tranquil cabin environment expected of a Cadillac.

The AWD system is driver-controlled, and includes a new “disconnect” feature that disables the rear drive unit for improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

The 2017 XT5 is built at the Spring Hill, Tenn. assembly facility outside of Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
