August 2nd, 2021 by


The 2018 Cadillac XT5 is considered the best of the best in its class, and surprisingly enough, it’s pretty adept in maintaining fuel efficiency. This luxury SUV is filled with plenty of amenities like Apple CarPlay, along with Android Auto and safety technologies like forward automatic braking. All of these positives only scratch the surface as to why it’s been selected as Driver’s Auto Mart’s Used of The Week!

Engine and Drive

The 2018 XT5 is powered by a hefty naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6 engine. This motor has an output of 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. It also includes impressive features like variable-valve timing, Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation, direct injection, and automatic stop/start technology. One of the benefits of this compact is that it runs on regular gasoline instead of expensive premium fuel. Additionally, the V6 engine is supported by an 8-speed automatic transmission, which is electronically controlled. This transmission aids in providing optimal fuel economy despite its power output. It is also available either as a front-wheel-drive (FWD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD).

Driving behind the wheel of the XT5 may hardly feel like you’re driving at all given how comfortable and snuggly it is, you’ll also appreciate the excellent level of visibility. The automatic stop/start function is helpful for increasing fuel efficiency, but in case you find that the engine frequently turning on and off is too much for you, the system can be disabled. There is also much confidence in the SUV when making twists and turns, especially since the power steering provides great feed.


The outside of the 2018 XT5 compact triumphs in a sea of other SUVs thanks to its defined and crisp lines, opulent detailing, and intense grille. Its large and aggressive shape ensures that it will get more than enough attention. While there is some similarity with other models of the brand, this particular Cadillac has highlighting characteristics like ornate headlights and stronger contours. The most attractive trim is the top-tier Platinum with the adding of its distinctive exhaust and 20-inch wheels.
