A Motor Trend test drive of the 2017 Acadia's cousin the Cadillac XT5. Built on the same chassis and uses the same engine as the Acadia.

Interesting review.   

I have quit trying to talk my wife into the current SRX.   Was trying too get her into the SRX ever since I got my Acadia.   She just will not leave her 2004 DHS.   She says it only has 69,000 miles and she is going to keep it.  Guess she does not want an SUV.

The current Cadillac sedan, the CTS, just has too small a trunk to be useful.

Are you sure the new XT5 is going to be the same size as the new Acadia?  Saw nothing in the article to indicate that.  If so it will certainly be too close in size to the Terraine.

I seriously looked at the SRX before I bought my Acadia.   My son complained thee was not enough headroom in the rear seats so I scrapped the idea.

Still would love to have a CTS-V wagon.

Thanks for the link.

Reads to me that the new Acadia is just too small for my taste.  Or maybe not considering that I will not be hauling as much outsized material as I used to.  However, it would be nice to still have the third row.  But I am betting that row will be like my old Acura MDX.  Too small for anything other than small sized children.

But, we will see.

So how about a real-world XT5 review?

I traded my 2013 SRX in for one... an XT5 Platinum.  And it's superior in every single way.  Drives better, handles better, rides better, lighter, better gas mileage, more fun, more technology, better lighting, better in every single way.

If GM can continue to build vehicles like this, they will have tremendous, tremendous hits on their hands.  We've heard that the Spring Hill TN plant had to add another shift due to high demand on the XT5 & New Acadia...  doesn't surprise me one bit.
