Cadillac XT5


These are the first official pictures of the SRX replacement.
The SRX has been quite a hit for Cadillac. Still selling over 53 000 units last year.
(Although that is still about half of the Lexus RX sales. With over 107 000!)

I think this looks really good. Much nicer than the CT6 sedan. The only thing wrong is the stupid name. CT for sedans and XT for SUVs. I don't know, I just don't like it.
It's time Cadillac realizes they are not German.

I also think this will steal sales from the new Lexus RX. Which definitely looks way too weird for many of its older customers. (And anyone with taste)
This could be a great thing for GM.

I wasn't that impressed with it when the first pics of it hit the internet, but it's starting to grow on me now. If I was in the market for a premium midsize crossover, this new Cadillac XT5 and the 2nd gen Lincoln MKX would probably be the top two choices on my shopping list.

I find it interesting that Cadillac can give this new XT5 enough detailing to give the exterior some visual interest, but couldn't do the same for the rather bland and boring CT6 sedan.
