With the 2022 XT5, Cadillac has reduced Escalade-level luxury to a more manageable size, but it has sacrificed a significant amount of its majesty in the process. The XT5’s exterior design is attractive and distinguished; its well-equipped cabin is quiet during driving, and there’s plenty of room for four passengers and their luggage inside. However, the red-hot compact luxury SUV market is limited for mediocrities, so the XT5’s faults only serve to highlight superior competitors such as the BMW X3 and Genesis GV70.

Standard engines are a turbocharged four-cylinder and a V-6, neither of which offers outstanding performance or is particularly refined. The XT5’s ride can be harsh on rough roads, and that stiff-leggedness doesn’t translate to exciting handling as you find in the Mercedes-AMG GLC-class or Porsche Macan. Unfortunately, the XT5 is a misfire from General Motors’ most prestigious name.

The XT5 has a streaming video rear-view mirror, 360° vision backup camera, and the first application of GM’s Electronic Precision Shift, which replaces the conventional hydraulic shifter with an electronic controller. This, combined with a new lightweight chassis, results in a 278-pound weight reduction versus the SRX.

The days of just dumping some off-the-shelf fluid into your car’s gearbox appear to be over. All makes now suggest specifically formulated oils for their moving components, with the exception of Toyota and Dodge. While some people may find it objectionable, I think it’s fantastic that manufacturers are collaborating with lubricant vendors to optimize the performance and life out of their parts.

If the automatic transmission fluid level is too low, the oil pump will draw in air, resulting in lower line pressure. As a result, the clutch slips and causes issues such as a burned clutch.

Excessive/overfilled automatic transmission fluid level will cause the gears in the automatic gearbox to churn the automatic transmission fluid, resulting in bubbling and malfunctions such as failure. If the car is driven with this condition, the automatic transmission fluid level can rise, causing the transmission breather vent hose to blow out.

Initial Fill 5.3 quarts (5 liters)

Your automobile will need to be inspected by a certified Cadillac technician on a regular basis in order to make sure it continues to look good and that its components do not wear out too soon. The ideal service interval for the Cadillac XT5 is 15,000 miles. To ensure that the vehicle’s components are still operating properly and safely to drive, it will be thoroughly inspected on a regular basis at set intervals.

Although the Cadillac XT5’s maintenance requirements are comparable to those of other cars on the road, your owner’s handbook will specify its exact service intervals. For safety and performance reasons, you should always follow the schedule for your particular automobile.
