3 Things To Know About The Cadillac XT5 Sport Package

If you want your Cadillac XT5 to stand out, you may want to check out the XT5 Sport Package that Cadillac made available for the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims of the SUV. Priced at $1,995 and $2,995, respectively, the package will bring in a lot of cosmetics updates for what is already an aesthetically imposing SUV.

Darker Exterior

Look, you don’t have to buy the Sport Package unless you want your XT5 to be looked at under a different light. It brings nothing to the engine and there’s no exclusive body paint to speak of. What it does bring is a darker exterior packaging, which means LED headlights (that’s optional for the Luxury trim), taillights with clear lenses, a front grille with gloss black treatment, and a pair of side steps that should make climbing up and down the SUV a breeze. What stands out most in the package is the set of 20-inch aluminum wheels that feature a sleek Technical Grey finish.

Aluminum-Trimmed Interior

The XT5’s interior benefits from the package, too. The cabin is now dressed in aluminum trim no matter if you choose the entirely black upholstery or the one that combines Jet Black and Cirrus (a warm shade of blue, kinda like the shade of cirrus clouds). There are sport pedals, of course, but Cadillac forgot to upgrade its floor mats so you should look at your local car accessory shop for something that will complement the rest of the cabin.

No Engine Upgrade

It’s worth mentioning, of course, that you cannot expect the Sport Package to come with an upgrade for the Cadillac XT5’s engine. It’s still fitted with the same 3.6-liter V-6 engine that makes 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. That power goes through an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends the signal to two front wheels. There’s an option for an all-wheel drive.

Range-Topping Tesla Model 3 Is Now Standard With Performance Package

For Tesla, if you want the Performance Package, you would have to pay about $5,000 more. The fee will get you some really cool features such as a carbon-fiber spoiler, a 310-mile estimated range, and 20-inch alloys on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. But the electric-vehicle producer is now offering the $5,000 Performance Package as standard to the range-topping Tesla Model 3 without any increase in the base price.

Tesla has been known to change, mostly increase, its prices from time to time. This time though, the change is good because the Performance Upgrade option will now be added to the most expensive trim in the Model 3 lineup—the Dual Motor Performance. The package comes with an all-wheel-drive system and has a 310-mile estimated range. The starting price for the top-range trim is $65,200 even after the $5,000 upgrade.

It also includes a carbon-fiber spoiler, aluminum pedals, lowered suspension, new 20-inch alloys on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, upgraded brakes, and a 10-mph increase in its top speed. This boost will allow the range-topping Tesla Model 3 to hit 155 mph.

However, many Tesla Model 3 owners have already paid the $5,000 fee so this news doesn’t really sit well with them. After they complained to Elon Musk on Twitter, the controversial Tesla CEO agreed to refund the $5,000 fee or the disgruntled customers can choose for free Supercharging for the entirety of the ownership. It’s a pretty sweet deal so all you Tesla Model 3 owners who shelled out $5,000 for the package can now proceed to dealerships and get more value for your money.

A couple of months ago, Tesla offered free “unlimited” Supercharging to current Model 3 Performance owners. They can also gift new buyers the same benefit under the company’s referral scheme. The program ended in September so the Model 3 is no longer being offered with the free Supercharging.

2019 Infiniti QX50 Gets Fancy Autograph Package For Interior

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 has wowed industry experts and automobile fans because of its variable combustion engine that changes the compression ratio to maximize power and fuel efficiency. The engine could also change between Atkinson and regular combustion cycles, use either a multi-point or direct injection, and features an electric motor that controls the variable compression ratio.

If you’re not a fan of engines and grease and fuel efficiency, then maybe you might want to know how the QX50 will look inside? You won’t be disappointed as Infiniti just announced its newest Autograph Package that will transform the cabin of the QX50 into something akin to a luxury beach resort, thanks to a mixture of the latest Pantone color trends.

According to Infiniti, the interior will start with warmer color tones as the rich chocolate brown replicates wood applications in a beach resort and the surrounding trees. The creamy off-white will represent the sand on the beach while the highlights of cooler dark navy blue on the center console will remind us of ocean water.

The “proper balance” between warm and cool colors will create a “comfortable, yet invigorating environment.”

The cream, brown, and blue colors used in the package came from Pantone. The colors are called Coconut Milk, Emperador, and Sailor Blue, respectively. The Sailor Blue is applied to the center console, dash, and doors. The Emperador is seen on the steering wheel, leather-wrapped dash top and doors, the outer portions of the seats, and the lower door portions. Coconut Milk, on the other hand, is used on the dash color and the seat leather.

This is a special $2,000 option for the range-topping QX50 Essential trim level. Aside from the $2,000 Autograph Package, you would also have to pay $7,500 for the Sensory package and $550 for the ProAssist package, both of which are required. In total, you’re looking at a price tag of $54,395 for the most fashionable car ever.
