The 2021 Cadillac XT5 is presenting a lot of changes. All these updates will lead to the new generation of the vehicle. We can see the model for 2020 practically unchanged, which is the calm before a storm. Cadillac is trying to make a breakthrough in the market with new vehicles (XT6) and updates of the existing models. Besides the XT5, Cadillac Escalade is also heading to the new generation.
Details about the 2021 Cadillac XT5 are not available yet. But, we found some clues reporting the new crossover could be an EV. In the matter of fact, this is the priority for General Motors. Well, the company is having problems to catch up with the competition and the new XT5 could help to make the way to the hybrid and electric class.
Hybrid Engine is a Priority
Updates are always welcome. Still, the XT5 is pretty fresh, being launched only a couple of years ago. What makes GM developing the new generation so soon? The competition. The biggest lack of both XT5 and XT6 is any type of an electric source of power. General Motors, as a leader in the market, knows the future brings a lot of questions without hybrid drivetrains.
According to Johan de Nysschen, CEO of Cadillac, the company will develop electric units for 20 vehicles by 2023. Shortly after these words, de Nysschen resigned from the position. But, the plans are still there. Further details from other sources suggest the new XT5 could be an all-electric crossover with the range of 400 miles. Well, this is clear speculation. It is hard to believe that Cadillac is going to deliver the class-leading model in its first attempt.
