2017 Cadillac XT5 To Debut At 2015 Dubai Motor Show: Report

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Following the CT6, Cadillac’s replacement for the SRX will be the next model to adopt the brand’s new naming strategy where sedans and coupes all feature a “CT” in their names and the high-riding models get an “XT”. The names also feature a number corresponding with the positioning in the lineup of whichever vehicle they’re attached to.

We were wrong again.
