We glad to hear big report about the first spy photos of 2017 Cadillac XT5 is finally available with the refreshments around its body. As we know that the company presented the CT6 sedan already and we think that they will go with this new car as their next project. It will be a mid-size crossover that will replace the SRX and it might be revealed at LA Auto Show in this year as 2017 XT5.
2017 Cadillac XT5 Engine
It is quite possible to see the standard engine which is V6 and 3.6 liter to be used in this mid-size crossover so that the performance for this future car would be much more different than the current model. The predecessor, SRX will go with the same engine but the powertrain should be refreshed and it is expected to get slight update with the V6 engine to offer more output compared to the current 308 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque for 2017 Cadillac XT5. With the smaller version of V6 and 2.7 liter, it will be presented as the alternative. Buyers could choose whether they will go with the front or all-wheel drive. The output will be transmitted to the six-speed auto transmission that is expected to not be replaced with other transmission.
