If you want to lease an all-American luxury SUV that further takes you up in the lap of luxury, leasing a Cadillac is the deal.
In the 2022 Cadillac lineup, the XT5 midsize SUV stands out as a solid value. While not coming with any significant changes for the 2022 model year, this popular Caddy crossover still affords capable powertrain options, a well-built cabin with roomy seats, and a swath of standard amenities. If you’re looking for an affordable and decent luxury midsize SUV, you should consider leasing the 2022 Cadillac XT5. However, when stacked against some European and Japanese rivals, this luxury SUV may not be so impressive. But then again, it has a lower price tag than these models.
Cadillac offers the 2022 XT5 in three trim options—the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport. However, the base Luxury and Premium Luxury trims stand out from other trims. These two trim levels are well equipped with many standard niceties and offer different powertrain choices.
The new Cadillac XT5 Luxury model starts at $43,995.
Engine & Performance
Powering the 2022 Cadillac XT5 base model, the Luxury trim is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that churns out 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission to send power to the XT5’s front wheels, but you can also opt for an AWD system.
This powertrain configuration allows the base XT5 to return 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
Although this Caddy may not be the most athletic luxury SUV, it handles well and delivers a decent ride quality.
Caddy packs the XT5 Luxury model with a lot of pleasant features, including synthetic leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and 60/40 split-fold functionality. You also get an 8.0-inch touchscreen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot in this XT5 model.
Next in the lineup after the Luxury trim is the Premium Luxury trim. It starts at $48,795 and sums up all the best you can get from leasing this luxury SUV.
Engine & Performance
While it also comes with the standard 235-hp turbo-four, this XT5’s model offers an optional powertrain—a 3.6-liter V6 engine. This more potent powertrain option delivers 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. It also pairs with a nine-speed auto and FWD and AWD systems.
Like the XT5 Luxury trim, this trim offers a decent ride quality. However, the optional V6 engine makes it a less fuel-efficient option as it earns an EPA estimated 19/26 mpg city/highway.
The interior space and seating configuration are generally the same. However, its equipment is not the same. In addition to all the standard niceties you can get from the Luxury trim, the Premium Luxury model adds a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, wireless charging, hands-free power liftgate, and more. It also packs more standard safety features.
