Cadillac will uinveil its 2017 Crossover Touring 5 (XT5) SUV at the Los Angeles Auto Show, as the first of four new SUVs from General Motors' luxury unit to replace the outgoing SRX, Cadillac has announced.

The XT5 will joins Cadillac’s lineup immediately following the new range-topping CT6 sedan.

The luxury SUV will be powered by the new 3.6L V-6 engine fond in the brand’s ATS, CTS, and CT6. The engine has been redesigned and features cylinder deactivation technology that allows the engine to switch to a fuel-saving four-cylinder mode under low or moderate loads.

With an estimated peak output of 310-hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque, the new V-6 uses variable valve timing. Cadillac’s new stop-start technology will automatically stop and start the engine when the vehicle is at rest at traffic stops to save fuel and reduce emissions. 

The XT5 will include a new 8-speed automatic transmission that debuts Electronic Precision Shift – the first electronically controlled transmission shifter for a Cadillac. Electronic Precision Shift reduces noise and vibration, and allows further use of the cabin space with a storage space beneath the center console.

Cadillac’s new rear camera mirror system debuts on the XT5 and CT6 sedan. The system enhances the driver’s rear vision by 300% by using a video display applied over the conventional inside rearview mirror. A high dynamic range camera records wider images behind the car, streams the image to video processing software that “removes” obstacles such as the roof, rear pillars and rear seat passengers, projecting an unobstructed view to a liquid crystal display. 

The XT5 will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show this month, and will begin production in the U.S. and China in spring 2016.
