Here’s When 2024 Cadillac XT5 Production Is Scheduled To Start

As production of the 2023 Cadillac XT5 is well underway at the Spring Hill plant in Tennessee, and Cadillac Society has now learned when assembly of the 2024 Cadillac XT5 will begin. 

According to sources familiar with the matter, assembly of the 2024 Cadillac XT5 is scheduled to begin in June 2023. It’s worth noting that the 2024 XT5 sold in North America will be completely different from the next-generation model that will be exclusively available in China. In other words, the next-gen model will not be coming to North America, and the 2024 Cadillac XT5 for the U.S. and Canada will soldier on largely unchanged from the 2023 model year.

Initially, the Cadillac XT5 was slated to receive a significant update for the 2023 model year, but it was subsequently delayed due to supplier issues and eventually canceled altogether for the North American market. As such, the first-generation model will continue to be produced without any major updates or changes thru the 2024 and 2025 model years, at which point the luxury crossover will be discontinue.

As a reminder, the Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels of the 2023 Cadillac XT5 continue to be powered by the turbocharged 2.0L I4 engine (production code LSY) as standard, which is rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. These models will be identifiable by the 350T badge on the liftgate.

Meanwhile, the naturally-aspirated 3.6L V6 engine (production code LGX), rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque, will be optional on the Premium Luxury trim and standard on the Sport trim. These models can be identified by the 400 badge on the liftgate.

Both engine options bolt to Cadillac’s nine-speed automatic transmission, and offer front-wheel-drive as standard or all-wheel-drive as an option. The Sport trim, however, features all-wheel-drive as standard.

  1. It bothers me to hear that Cadillac will develop the next generation XT5 and only make it available in China. Cadillac continues to leave its traditional customers in the dust…NOT A GOOD IDEA…I hope they’ll reconsider and bring the next gen XT% and CT6 to the US.

  2. I love my 2017 xt5 and probably would like to update to the next generation xt5.So Cadillac thinks China is a better customer than us USA people.This is why we are loosing to China everything that should be made here and sold here,why allinate your customer base to send this very desirable model to them.We can only hope gm changes their mind.This vehicle is probably the best vehicle I have ever owned and a new updated model would be in my future if gm wakes up to their customers wants and needs

  3. GM does not care about their customers and is also very poorly run. This is why prople are jumping to the competition like Lexus. Who made the decision at this time for Cadillac to only make EV’s? Stupid GM!

  4. Don’t you guys get it the lyric is the next xt5 that’s why Cadillac will not be selling that in the US they want you to buy the lyric which is going to be a better car and it’s very very nice

    • Nah bruh not very very nice, its a quit soulless vehicle wat do you not understand about that

  5. I was disappointed to hear that Cadillac has decided not to bring the updated 2024 XT5 to the USA, instead it will be sold in China?
    Might be time to look elsewhere.

  6. Cadillac is putting all their eggs into the electric basket. It won’t be the first time that bad decisions cost them sales and a bad reputation.

  7. I completely agree with the sentiment that Cadillac needs to think of its American customer base. Why does China get the new XT5 and continues to receive the on-going production of the CT6? I realize that we are losing everything to China, but never anticipated that our own legendary American luxury car maker would be at the forefront of that drive. Shame on you.
