Cadillac decided not to mess with success in 2005 and made only minor changes to the highly acclaimed XLR. The manufacturer dropped the gray exterior and added two new colors. In addition, production rose from almost 4,000 to 4,700 cars. Otherwise, the one trim 2 door, 2 seat convertible gives you the same features from the previous year.

The 2005 Cadillac XLR uses a 4.6 L, 320 hp V8 engine with 5 speed automatic transmission to get you 17 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway. Standard features include power windows, power door locks, leather seats, power seats, ABS brakes, traction control, stability control, cd player, and a navigation system. Cargo space comes out to 11.6 cubic feet with the top up, 4.4 with the top down. Acceleration from 0-60 mph takes about 6 seconds. This car also has keyless ignition and doors.
Drivers have almost nothing bad to say about the XLR. They like the roomy interior, smooth handling, and elegant exterior. The only real negative feedback may come from reviewers who feel that the price places the XLR out of the average person’s budget. In any case, two pieces of advice for prospective purchasers: bring your checkbook and enjoy.
