Super Cruise Isn’t Coming To Cadillac XT5 In North America

The Cadillac XT5 has remained largely unchanged since its introduction for the 2017 model year. What’s a bit surprising about this crossover, however, is the fact that it’s now one of only two Cadillac nameplates currently in production by the luxury marque that does not offer Super Cruise – the advanced semi-autonomous driver assist feature. Now, Cadillac Society has learned that the XT5 will never receive the technology in North America.

As a reminder, Super Cruise allows drivers of vehicles outfitted with the technology to take their hands off the wheel (and feet off the pedals) under certain conditions on compatible North American highways. The technology was first introduced on the Cadillac CT6, though this sedan has since been discontinued for North America. As for the current lineup, Super Cruise can be found in the CT4 and CT5 luxury sedans, the XT6, the full-size Escalade luxury SUV and the Lyriq electric vehicle. And though Super Cruise is currently not offered on the the XT4, we fully expect that to change a few months into the 2024 model year refresh.

The first-generation Cadillac XT5 was never outfitted with the feature, and we are aware of now plans to offer it. In fact, the XT5 is expected to exit the North American market upon the conclusion of the 2024 model year, as it is indirectly replaced by the electric Lyriq crossover. The Chinese market, meanwhile, will get a the second-generation XT5, but this model is not expected to be offered in the Americas. 

As for the current-gen Cadillac XT5, the crossover features two engine options. The turbocharged 2.0L (production code LSY) engine is standard on the (base) Luxury and Premium Luxury models, where it makes 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. These models wear the 350T badge on the liftgate.

Meanwhile, the naturally-aspirated 3.6L V6 (production code LGX) is optional on the Premium Luxury trim while being standard on the Sport model. The atmospheric six is rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. These models feature the 400 badge out back. Both engines mate to Cadillac’s nine-speed automatic transmission.

  1. Each successive news item about Cadillac reinforces the theme that the United States is a secondary market, as far as GM is concerned. That’s sad.

    • Couldn’t agree more. Abandoning the XT5 is a bad move.

  2. They are making a big mistake. Keep the upgraded XT5 in this country as well as China, along with Supercruise. Stop with the thinking that ,if you stop making the XT5 available in this country for Cadillac drivers of this model ,they will jump on the bandwagon and get a Lyriq. Wrong it will not happen. Instead you will drive them away .

    • I 100 percent agree with you. Xt5 owners are not interested in the Lyriq. GM will be giving away sales to the competition and losing more market share but it would seem that is alright with them.

  3. I am sorry I did purchase a 2021 X5 to now find out it will be manufactured in China and sold only in China.
    Before everything will be manufactured outside of the USA.
    it is sad.
