Like its GMC Acadia cousin, the brand new 2017 Cadillac XT5 has been on a whirlwind tour impressing crowds at the biggest auto shows all over North America. After debuting at the Montreal International Auto Show in January, a Don Wheaton Blog correspondent was able to catch up with the new XT5 at the Chicago Auto Show, which happens to be the longest running automotive exposition in the world. Crowds stood with rapt attention as the Cadillac product specialist explained what is waiting for potential customers once the brand new Cadillac crossover SUV arrives to dealerships later this year.

It has already been revealed that the 2017 Cadillac XT5 will be larger and a bit more powerful than the existing Cadillac SRX crossover SUV. However, among the facts conveyed at the Chicago presentation was the incredible array of technology that will be available in the new Cadillac XT5.

Naturally, the 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot will be on hand to keep drivers and passengers connected to the internet. It’s likely that the XT5 will follow suit with a three-month/three-gigabyte trial data bucket, like the rest of the vehicles that have the hotspot. Much of the technological capability in the 2017 XT5 begins with the upgraded Cadillac CUE infotainment system.
The CUE system that will be available with the XT5 will be faster thanks to a faster computer processor with will provide quicker response to user inputs as well as better accuracy. Additionally, the car will be more supportive of outside digital devices by including a special tray for wireless charging.
Study after study detailing driving safety keeps coming up with the same conclusion, drivers whose eyes don’t leave the road are safer drivers. To help keep a person’s eyes where they need to be, Cadillac engineers have coopted technology from various high performance General Motors vehicles in the way of the reconfigurable Heads-Up Display (HUD). Projected on the windshield, the Cadillac HUD can display different kinds of information like speed or navigation in the driver’s eye line without being obtrusive or distracting.
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 should be arriving to Don Wheaton toward the end of this year. If you would like to learn more about the vehicle or would like to start the pre-order process, contact a Don Wheaton sales professional today.
