2022 Cadillac XT5 Towing Capacity by Engine

Choose from two engine options for your XT5, both of which are paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and Driver Shift Control that delivers smooth, effortless shifts. A V6 upgrade becomes available at the Premium Luxury trim in its AWD configuration and comes standard on the range-topping XT5 Sport AWD. So, how much can a 2022 Cadillac XT5 tow with each engine? Here’s a closer look at the specs:

Standard 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder Engine

  • Max towing capacity of 1,000 lbs
  • 235 hp @ 5000 rpm
  • 258 lb-ft of torque @ 1500-4000 rpm

2022 Cadillac XT5 Smart Towing Features

As we outlined above, how much a 2022 Cadillac XT5 can tow isn’t determined by the engine: both the turbo-4 and the V6 upgrade can handle weights of up to 1,000 pounds. That said, you’ll still need to upgrade to the Premium Luxury AWD or Sport AWD configuration in order to equip the XT5 with the necessary equipment for towing.

Then, opt for the Smart Towing package for a hitch, hitch cover, 7-wire harness, 170-amp alternator, a heavy-duty cooling system to help the engine dissipate heat, and the following advanced towing technologies:

  • Hitch Guidance – Displays guidance lines via the Rear Vision Camera when the vehicle is in Reverse for fast and easy trailer-hitching.
  • Hitch Guidance with Hitch View – Displays guidance lines via the Rear Vision Camera when the vehicle is in Reverse and offers a close-up Hitch View. When Hitch View is in use, it automatically applies the electric parking brake when shifting to Park.

What’s more, the XT5 comes standard with driving mode selection to match the vehicle’s performance with Lady Lake driving conditions in real time. FWD models come with Tour, Sport, and Snow/Ice; AWD models add Tour, AWD, Sport, and Off-Road modes.

What Can a 2022 Cadillac XT5 Tow?

With the maximum 2022 Cadillac XT5 towing capacity of 1,000 pounds, you have enough power at your disposal to hitch up a flatbed trailer and load it with building supplies, sports equipment, and whatever else you want to move.
