DC says:

The only two things I would change about this car:

1. Add a third row option. This car is the same size and is on the same platform as the GMC Acadia, which offers a third row. I think it would rake in many more family buyers. (I know Cadillac is coming with a full sized crossover soon)

2. Those halogen headlights. I love GM, but this is just penny pinching. There is absolutely no reason that a luxury car in 2018 should have halogens. HIDs should be standard, if not LED.

Jay Mac says:

I feel like Lexus has kinda given up on their SUVs and crossovers at the worst possible time. Interior quality, technology, and and passenger comfort is far below that of their sedans. Basically all of them need a total, ground up redesign despite the fact that some of them were just refreshed (especially the GX and LX). The Caddy is so fresh and unique that the only worthy competitor in my mind is the new RDX

Johns Corey says:

I don’t know what the reviewer is talking about but the interior looks basic. There’s nothing impressive about it.

Not bad but nothing to brag about.

bassistdc says:

can you disable the start/stop function?

Turf Surf says:

Love the back mount camera which we can see the road and the dash. Sick of watching everyone’s face talking in reviews.

Tyler Fletcher says:

Very nice job on the review as you always do . You should do mercedes benz e class review

LaTasha Ursin says:

Yes, Lord. I claim it in Jesus Name, Amen.

Bennett Vu says:

Nice review 😉

Ed Victory says:

Looking at FEATURES is great. Perhaps ADD reliability facts as well???

C says:

Had a 2017 XT5 Luxury with all options and just moved to a 2018 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring. Not even fair comparison. The CX-9 is soo much nicer, drives better and more sporty without being rough, looks much nicer inside especially, rear ac controls, better mpg, etc. Cadillac couldn’t hold its value either, which made us not look at another GM product.

Alan Reeser says:

How about doing a review of the Platinum. I’m a disabled vet and after seven years I’m getting one. It has the parking assist I need and I can get in and out of it easier.

TJC450 says:

Can’t wait for the XT4


I love the weeping headlight looks on this one ; nice review as always !!

Who is fluffy? says:

One of my favorite cars. I wish I could get one over my 2007 STS

Ed Victory says:

Having auto UP and DOWN on ALL windows should be the case at this price.

Jigsaw Network says:

Nice Car Man

Darrin Steinman says:

The new lincolns look better

Bigtruckseriesreview Motorsports says:

Since all of these econoboxes have damn near the same powertrain and engine specs, I must say the V6 AWD we just leased doesn’t do much to stand above the rest.

The XT5’s strength is elegant appearance and the interior space which is bigger than the SRX.

“The Luxury Trim” lacks Ventilated/cooled Sears.

This car isn’t worth spending more than $50,000 so I wouldn’t buy the Platinum unless we planned on keeping it 10 years.

Dylan’s Car reviews says:

Can you please do more top trims? I know most people will buy the mid Trims, but you guys are very rarely doing high trims now.

Russ Freed says:

Good editing and informative. Try injecting a touch of your own personality into video. Just a touch of fun or funny. But definitely a good review

Noah Allen says:

Nice spec!

vdelrio999 says:

Excellent video. As always.

Tyler Fletcher says:


Subie Guy1 says:
