The Sleuth’s sources are hearing that General Motors’ premium brand will add second powerplant choice to its midsize five-passenger utility model for the 2020 model year. The current V-6 rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque will be joined by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out 237 horses and 258 pound-feet. This also happens to be the same engine that’s standard in the smaller XT4. Other changes to the XT5 include a redesigned front end (grille and standard LED headlights), a rear pedestrian alert and a newly available night-vision camera. Updates to the XT5’s interior are also expected. The Spy Guy believes the 2020 XT5’s base price with the four-cylinder could be a bit lower than the current $42,700 (with destination charges), although that’s just a hunch at this point.
The Cadillac XT5 has a standard 3.6-liter V-6, but not for much longer as a turbocharged four-cylinder will be added for the 2020 model year. Will it be available with all-wheel-drive? There are also some visual and content updates coming. PHOTO: CADILLAC
