The only thing constant about the Cadillac vehicle lineup lately is change. Beyond the news that its flagship CT6 is going away after this year, the brand’s crossover lineup is getting a major revamp.
Brand new for 2019 was the XT4, Cadillac’s entry in the hot category of compact crossovers. Then the three-row crossover XT6 (a 2020 model) was just unveiled at NAIAS in January.
Right in the middle is the OG of the crossover lineup, the XT5 (known in its former life as the SRX), a midsize luxury crossover competing against heavy hitters like the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Lexus RX.
I recently spent some time in a 2019 XT5 and I’m back with a full report on how it measures up to the competition.
Some vehicles, I really look forward to driving. Others, not so much.
And then, there are the special ones. The ones that have something the others just don’t. The ones in which you truly enjoy every minute behind the wheel.
The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is one of those special ones, a vehicle aimed squarely at people who love exploring just how much a motor vehicle can do.
Aimed at a very niche market of enthusiasts and taking on tough competitors from the other side of the pond, Cadillac needs to come with its A-game on this performance offering.
