Where Is the Cadillac XT5 Built?

October 24th, 2018 by

Buying a car is stressful, no matter what you look for. With so many options available, it can be difficult to know where to start.

How about beginning with where the car is actually made? Say you’ve zeroed in on the Cadillac XT5 – a good choice. But we bet you have no idea where it’s built.

Popularity of the Crossover

The Cadillac XT5 is one of the most highly competitive crossovers in its category. Overall, crossovers are on the rise. They make up 48.5 percent of the U.S retail market.

That means nearly half of the cars driven out there are crossovers.
Why does the crossover conquer all the other cars out there? It’s because it has everything you need.

People are breaking from traditional sedans to choose cars that suit a more active lifestyle.

Want to pack your kids safely into a car? The XT5 has plenty of room for everyone. Take it on a road trip, pack all your stuff in it and there’s still space. And fuel efficiency.

Three times as many crossovers are sold today as SUVs and minivans. You can take them to the mountains and on rougher terrain, but they still function efficiently for your daily runs.

Where Does the XT5 Come From?

Its no surprise the Cadillac XT5 is built in more than one place. Quite a few parts comprise a whole car.

However, there is one place where all those parts come together. That’s General Motors’ Spring Hill Manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee.

The plant is no small deal. It spans 6.9 million square feet or 2,100 acres. That’s a lot of space to work with. It opened in 1990. Before it produced the Cadillac XT5, it was the sole manufacturing site for Saturns. Saturn bit the dust around 2010.

The plant was idle for a short period in 2009, and employees faced early retirement and layoffs.

In 2011, GM announced it would rework the plant to produce the Chevy Equinox and other similarly sized vehicles. Production began again, but the whole facility was not used.

In 2015, all the plant’s facilities re-opened. The plant was awarded the ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry Recognition for Assembly Plant in 2015. So they make cars and do it with the least impact on the planet they can.

A year later, assembly of the XT5 began, and it was a huge success. Later in 2017, GM announced that it would be adding a $294 investment to begin making another Cadillac crossover. That’s right, you’re about to have lots of options.

Demand for XT5 Increases

On April 25th, 2018, GM announced demand for the Cadillac XT5 increased so much a third production shift at Cadillac XT5 Overview

The XT5 is increasingly popular, but why? Because it’s design was improved through the roof.

In this case, literally – its panoramic sunroof makes the cabin feel even more spacious than it already is.

The interior is made of leather, wood and brushed metal. It has been described as “stupendously comfortable.”

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is built with a 3.6-liter V6 engine, which gives it 19 miles per gallon (MPG) in the city and 27 MPG in the highway. For a car this size, such fuel efficiency is worthy of praise.

The entry-level XT5 features four-wheel drive (FWD). But this efficient crossover can also be purchased in all-wheel drive (AWD).

The car is exceptionally smooth. But would you expect anything less from a Cadillac?

When you choose an XT5, it comes with all the latest technology. That’s another thing you’d from a Cadillac. It’s equipped with CUE infotainment, which is compatible with your Android or Smartphone. You also get BOSE audio and Wi-Fi connectivity.
