2017 Cadillac XT5
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 offers a structure in high-strength steel that reduces cornering body roll but does not detract from its impressive overall capacity. It is a spectacular vehicle that makes a superb replacement for the SRX model.
The shape of things to come!
Named "C1XX" the new modular structure of the new Cadillac XT5 will it is believed, be established in future production vehicle models from GMC. It is an innovation that promotes easier and safer road-holding capabilities, particularly when negotiating corners.
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 Platinum boasts steering that is light and driver-friendly, while the chassis fully utilizes its Continuous Damping Control technique. This performs the function of making adjustments to the suspension in real time; supported by 20" tires. This is a car that delights in devouring the highway and provides an exceptional motoring experience for driver and passengers alike! With its digital rear-view mirror innovation, driver visibility is increased by 300 percent, whether driving in daylight or at night. The new Cadillac XT5 Platinum series offer their owners all-wheel drive, in the form of a new AWD system developed by General Motors and supported with a GKN Driveline.
For some owners, one of the most interesting benefits of the 2017 Cadillac XT5 Platinum is a dual-clutch rear differential. It is capable of not only supplying 100 percent of available torque to either the front or rear axle but also to either rear wheel, thereby providing maximum grip when you need it. It also has the effect of an RWD sensation when in "Sports mode" and helps improve fuel economy on the rear axle being disengaged by the driver!
The new Cadillac XT5 Platinum Series rides on a 1" longer wheelbase and 2" wider tracks, with the result being 3.2" of extra rear-seat legroom, plus about 3 percent more cargo room at the back. Compared to the SRX the dashboard design in the XT5 is a positive relief, with a layout of new processors that enable the Cadillac "CUE" infotainment system to make a faster response to respond to input material. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are compatible, with the center stack needing three physical control functions.
With the front seats being very comfortable and supportive, driving is also made easier by the various controls on the steering wheel being clear and convenient to access. The new Cadillac XT5 Platinum presents features, like the 8-speed automatic transmission with a ZF-style gear selector. Then, there is the family shopping to consider and load capacity!
Dealing with loading the shopping bags is also easy, with the hands-free power liftgate that opens when you sweep your feet below the rear bumper. Larger loads are also catered for with a sliding rear bench that folds 40/20/40. The 2017 Cadillac XT5 Platinum designers seem to have put a great deal of effort into making their vehicle an easy, comfortable ride!
