If you close your eyes and think back, you can remember a time when a vehicle had one task, and that was to drive. That was so 2010. Now, vehicles are fully-loaded technological beasts, helping you drive smarter and stay connected when you’re on the road. Some vehicles stand out in regards to technology and the 2017 XT5 is one of them. From surround vision to Cadillac Cue, you will be fully connected when you take off in this vehicle.
A New Point-of-View
Point-of-view is everything when you’re behind the wheel, and Surround Vision provides you a new point-of-view every time you go for a drive. This system offers a bird’s-eye view of your vehicle and the roadway. That means you don’t have to worry about blind spots causing you to make a mistake when you’re on the road.
If you need another point-of-view, you can stream the rear-mounted camera to your rearview mirror. Then, you can see everything that is going on behind you.
Shifting should be smooth and intuitive, and it finally is with the XT5. This car features Electronic Precision Shift technology. The technology allows you to shift like you’re operating a joystick. That means you can move the shifter from Park to Drive in a single motion. In other words, you can get out of the garage and on the road much faster with this technology.
Mindless Fuel Management
Remember when your dad told you that you need to change the way you drive so you’ll stop burning so much gas? Changing how you drive is a pain, which is why Cadillac came up with the Active Fuel Management system. When you don’t need as much fuel, the system turns off two of your vehicle’s cylinders. Then, it reactivates them when you need them. This allows you to get better fuel economy without changing how you drive.
Entertainment Hub at Your Fingertips
The XT5 doesn’t just use technology to help you drive. It also helps you have fun with Cadillac Cue. Cadillac Cue comes with Pandora Radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. You can also access your contacts and information from the screen. On top of that, it includes enhanced 3D GPS navigation.
If you’re salivating at the thought of all of this technology, it’s time to go to Moore Cadillac in Chantilly, VA and see one of these vehicles in person. The Cadillac XT5 definitely sounds good on paper, but it looks even better when you’re behind the wheel.
