2025 Cadillac XT5 Production To Start Sooner Than Originally Scheduled

2025 Cadillac XT5 Production To Start Sooner Than Originally Scheduled

Back in March 2024, Cadillac Society reported that the start of regular production (SORP) of the 2025 Cadillac XT5 would commence in early July. However, we’ve now learned that the 2025 XT5 will begin rolling off the assembly line a few weeks sooner than that.

According to sources familiar with the matter, production of the 2025 Cadillac XT5 at the Cadillac Spring Hill plant in Tennessee has been bumped up from early July and will now start in late June. Specifically, production of the luxury crossover will begin on June 24th, 2024, almost two weeks earlier than initially planned. 

As a reminder, the 2025 Cadillac XT5 for North America will be a continuation of the luxury crossover’s first generation and will not introduce any major changes or updates compared to its outgoing 2024 model year counterpart. The all-new second-generation model is not being released in North America and will be offered exclusively in China.

Interestingly, the future of the XT5 beyond the 2024 model year seemed murky until Cadillac Society learned that the luxury crossover would indeed be offered as a 2025 model year vehicle just a few months ago. Even so, as the first-generation XT5 soldiers on in North America, plans for the luxury crossover’s more distant future are still up in the air, although Cadillac was evaluating interest in bringing the second-gen model stateside.

For now, the 2025 Cadillac XT5 retains same exterior and interior designs along with the same powertrain lineup as its predecessor. The Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels will continue to harness the turbocharged 2.0L I4 engine (production code LSY) as standard, which is rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. 

Meanwhile, the naturally-aspirated 3.6L V6 engine (production code LGX), rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque, will once again be optional on the Premium Luxury trim and standard on the Sport trim. 

Both engine options bolt to Cadillac’s nine-speed automatic transmission. On the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims, front-wheel-drive is standard and all-wheel-drive as optional. The Sport trim, meanwhile, features all-wheel-drive as standard.

  1. Continuation of the XT5 as a 2025 should included the Platinum trim level as an option which offers a better competitive package for the luxury segment. I have had two Platinum XT5’s, 2017 and 2020 with a desire to order a 2025 with the V6 and Platinum for the level of luxury I desire. Without the Platinum, consideration toward the Blazer has acceptable attributes.
