Cadillac’s patented and industry-leading Rear Camera Mirror system is available. It enhances the driver’s rear vision by 300 percent, using a video display applied over the conventional inside rearview mirror. A high dynamic range camera records wider images behind the car, streams the image to video processing software which "removes" obstacles such as the roof, rear pillars and rear seat passengers, projecting an unobstructed view to a Liquid Crystal Display.
The XT5 is one of the friendliest mobile-device luxury vehicles on the road with complementing 4G LTE WiFi and USB charging ports in both the front and rear seats.
The second-generation Cadillac user experience system for connectivity and control is standard for the XT5. A fast and powerful processor provides quick response and accuracy. The XT5 features an integrated wireless charger for mobile devices, with a slot designed into the center console. The XT5 is equipped with 4G wireless connectivity, with a standard integrated Wi-Fi hotspot and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for simpler in-car phone integration.
The rear liftgate of the XT5 includes hands-free operation, allowing it to open or close via gesture control beneath the rear bumper.
