I hear you. If I could’ve found the car with that option along with the 3.55, 401a, and a few others I would’ve taken it. As it turned out, I had to order the car and when it came to actually adding in the options, I decided not to. I’ll have to live without.
I keep hearing that Cadillac has dropped the ball on this one. I'll reserve judgement but this doesn't look good. Does it seem like they spent so much money on development of the cars, they have really rested on their laurels for CUV's? They only had the Escalade and SRX for so long. The Escalade sold because Lincoln gave up and there was no competition. The XT5 is nothing ground breaking. XT4 is like they just mailed it in. They really need a new design language
What is the source of the photo in OP? Looks like some sort of press event. But a quick trip to Google doesn't come up with any actual photos or articles.
Edit: looks like the OP photo is from March 2018 Lincoln dealer meeting, which is how the suicide door rumor got started.
