The 2022 XT-5 is getting a big brake upgrade on Sport Models, among other 2022 model year changes that we preview right now.

Details on the changes that Cadillac is making to the 2022 XT-5 are making their way into the public domain. While most of the additions and changes are related to available colors and what the seat fabric is officially called- one new upgrade caught our eye. Standard Brembo Brakes on the XT-4 Sport AWD. This past year we installed Brembo brakes on our 2019 Silverado and it made a significant difference. We expect this upgrade brake package on the XT-5 to be equally impressive.

Every year Cadillac makes small changes to their models. They can include the colors the vehicle can be ordered in or specific features that will be added or subtracted. In this article, we’re going to take a look at the 2022 XT-5 and what’s new for this model year.
