This trim also comes standard with a different engine than you'll find in the first two models. Whether you get the entry-level trim or the top trim, you'll find many features to enjoy with your 2020 XT5. Here is an overview of how they compare in several key categories.

Inside and out, the Luxury and Sport trims have a captivating appearance. You can choose from over nine paint colors to give your Cadillac a specific look. Some colors are only available for certain trim levels. This year's XT5 gets a slightly refreshed appearance, complete with a new face, that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Across the vehicle's exterior, sharp, defined lines, distinguished contours, and sweeping curves combine to create a one-of-a-kind appearance. The headlights and taillights have a jeweled appearance for a dazzling luxury effect and optimal visibility. "Visionary" is how Cadillac describes the SUV's lighting, which includes brand-specific LED lights that can switch between low and high beams. Up to 20-inch alloy wheels are another exterior highlight.


Inside, the 2020 XT5 has several desirable features on both trim levels. The base trim comes equipped with an eight-inch infotainment display screen that has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The base Luxury trim also comes equipped with a Bose system, which is a rarity among vehicles of its kind. Simulated leather upholstery is standard. The front seats are power-adjustable as well.
