The 2023 Cadillac XT5 adds three new exterior colors to its palette: Radiant Red Tintcoat, Opulent Blue Metallic, and Argent Silver Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Silver hue.
Assigned production code GXD and touch-up paint code WA-130H, Argent Silver Metallic is one of eight exterior colors offered on the luxury crossover, which include:
- Crystal White Tricoat
- Latte Metallic
- Rosewood Metallic
- Stellar Black Metallic
- Wilder Metallic
- Argent Silver Metallic (new for 2023)
- Opulent Blue Metallic (new for 2023)
- Radiant Red Tintcoat (new for 2023)
The Argent Silver Metallic color is a no-cost item that is available on all trims and can be combined with all five interior colorways:
- Cirrus with Dark Titanium accents
- Cirrus with Jet Black accents
- Kona Brown Sauvage with Jet Black accents
- Maple Sugar with Jet Black accents
- Sedona Sauvage with Jet Black accents
The current first-generation crossover made its debut for the 2017 model year, with a refresh introduced for the 2020 model year.
Cadillac originally planned to give the XT5 a brand-new second generation model for the 2023 model year. However, the generational overhaul was subsequently delayed. What will end up taking place now is that the XT5 will see a next-gen model, but it will be exclusively for the Chinese market.
As a reminder, the Cadillac XT5 rides on the C1 Cadillac platform and is offered with two powertrain options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 gasoline engine (production code LSY), as well as the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 gasoline engine (production code LGX). Output is routed through Cadillac nine-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive standard on Luxury and Premium Luxury trims, with all-wheel drive being an optional extra. On the Sport trim, all-wheel-drive is standard.
XT5 production for North America takes place at the Cadillac Spring Hill plant in Tennessee. The 2023 Cadillac XT5 began rolling off the assembly line on June 10th, 2022.

I guess the first question is, what is the difference between the ‘new’ Argent Silver and the hue that was on the XT4/XT5 previously and why, given the Name Change that will come in 2024-5 at least for the XT5?
