Cruising in style shouldn't mean you have to compromise power! While there are many luxury SUVs out there these days, there are few that can stand the tests of time. One proud and strong among them is the 2019 Cadillac XT5. Strength doesn't skimp out in any way as you're cruising down Ogden Avenue. To prove its merit, we at Heritage Cadillac are putting it up against the 2019 Lexus RX 350. For more information, you can speak to a sales representative at 844-841-5685.

Performance Differences

Get to your destination in record time with the 2019 XT5! The instant you step on the accelerator, you'll be flying down the freeway with an effortless 310 horsepower and 271 lb.-ft. of torque, thanks to the standard 3.6L V6 engine. Putting your money into something that can't deliver on quality horsepower isn't worth it if it can't get you to wherever you're going in a timely manner. Any Lexus RX 350 on the road won't be able to keep up with you, as their standard 3.5L V6 engine can only get you up to 295 horsepower and 268 lb.-ft. of torque.

Commodious Cabin

On top of a stellar horsepower, the 2019 Cadillac XT5 continues to amaze with its roomy interior. Listening to complaining passengers and getting kneed in the back are things of the past when you decide to ride in the XT5. Those sitting in the rear seats can stretch their legs out further with the XT5's 39.5 inches of legroom. While they're comfortable in the back, you and your copilot will be just as happy because of the 58.3 inches of front shoulder room. You won't be able to say the same thing about the Lexus RX 350 and its 38.0 inches of legroom and 57.8 inches of front shoulder space. Then, when you've got a big trip coming up, you can plan accordingly and fill up your XT5 with more thanks to the 63.0 cubic ft. of cargo space1! You won't get this same luxury with the RX 350 as it only musters up 56.5 cubic ft. of cargo room.

Does the XT5 Have Parking Assistance?

Safety comes standard on the Cadillac XT5. It can sometimes be difficult backing out of tight spots, which is why the XT5 comes equipped with Rear Park Assist2. This feature allows you to be able to see a live view of what is behind you so you can avoid nearby objects or other drivers. You can get this feature on the Lexus RX 350, but only as an available feature. One wrong move could be all of the difference between a safe stop and a detrimental mishap. Is opting out of this feature worth the risk?
