Is the 2023 Cadillac XT5 fuel-efficient? Yes! For a model in the luxury midsize SUV segment, the 2023 Cadillac XT5 gas mileage of 22/29 city/highway is above average. You’ll go the furthest on every gallon of fuel when you configure the XT5 with front-wheel drive and the standard 4-cylinder engine. All models come standard with an automatic 9-speed transmission.

Opting for all-wheel drive or the available V6 engine will cost you a few miles per gallon. So, exactly how many miles per gallon does the 2023 Cadillac XT5 get with AWD, the V6 engine option, or both? Find the fuel efficiency details you’re looking for in the guide below from Sullivan Cadillac.

2023 Cadillac XT5 Gas Mileage By Configuration

You already know that with FWD, you’ll benefit from better 2023 Cadillac XT5 MPG specs and fuel savings over time. Is FWD the right choice, or should you forgo the fuel savings and choose an AWD model?

Front-wheel drive systems use less fuel by limiting power to the front axle, while AWD systems enhance traction by sending power to both axles. For the vast majority of Lady Lake and The Villages-area drivers, front-wheel drive offers plenty of control on a wider range of road surfaces, even in wintry weather. The added capability of all-wheel drive is most useful for off-road circumstances or especially tough driving conditions.

With the standard 4-cylinder engine, the difference in the 2023 Cadillac XT5 MPG with FWD compared to AWD is relatively small. You’ll actually lose more efficiency by equipping the V6 engine, as you can see from the specs below:

Standard 2.0L 4-cylinder Turbocharged Engine

  • 2023 Cadillac XT5 MPG with FWD – 24/22/29 combined/city/highway MPG
  • 2023 Cadillac XT5 MPG with AWD – 23/21/27 combined/city/highway MPG

Available 3.6L V6 Engine

  • 2023 Cadillac XT5 MPG with FWD – 21/19/26 combined/city/highway MPG
  • 2023 Cadillac XT5 MPG with AWD – 21/18/25 combined/city/highway MPG

2023 Cadillac XT5 Engine Options & Specs

Upgrading with the V6 engine makes for a sportier ride and more powerful passing on Gainesville highways, but the standard 4-cylinder still makes a respectable 235 horsepower. Either engine delivers the balanced handling and exceptional control that you’ve come to expect from this time-tested luxury brand.

2.0L 4-cylinder Turbocharged Engine Specs

  • 235 horsepower
  • 258 pound-feet of torque
  • Nine-speed automatic transmission
  • Towing capacity of 1,000 pounds

3.6L V6 Engine Specs

  • 310 horsepower
  • 271 pound-feet of torque
  • Nine-speed automatic transmission
  • Towing capacity of 1,000 pounds

Does the Cadillac XT5 Require Premium Fuel?

Is the 2023 Cadillac XT5 as fuel-efficient as the EPA estimates suggest? It is, but these figures are determined when the vehicle is using the recommended fuel. Here’s which fuel to use for each of the XT5 engine options:

  • To maximize how many gallons the Cadillac XT5 gets when equipped with the base 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, you will need to fill up with premium unleaded gasoline that has an octane rating of 91 or higher.
  • To maximize how many gallons the Cadillac XT5 gets when equipped with the available V6 engine, you will need to fill up with regular unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 87 or higher.
