Overview[edit]

Cadillac XT4 rear

The XT4 (short for Crossover Touring 4) is Cadillac’s second crossover SUV, slotting below the mid-size[5] Cadillac XT5, serving as the luxury equivalent to the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain. It is the third model to use Cadillac's new alphanumeric naming scheme (after the CT6 and XT5), and the second of three vehicles Cadillac is introducing in the Crossover Touring (XT) series, the third being the mid-sized three rows[6][7] XT6 that will debut in 2019.[8] It utilizes GM's E2 platform, shared with the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick's Opel Insignia–badged Regal TourX sport wagon. The XT4 is produced at GM's Fairfax, Kansas plant, and went on sale in the fall of 2018 as a 2019 model. The Chinese-market XT4 is manufactured in Shanghai by SAIC-GM.

Cadillac introduced a teaser for the XT4 during a telecast of the 90th Academy Awards on March 4, 2018,[9] and it made its official debut at the 2018 New York Auto Show on March 27, 2018.[10] Cadillac started taking customer pre-orders shortly following the New York debut. The starting price for the 2019 XT4 in the United States is US$35,790.[11]

Powertrain[edit]

The XT4 launched with an all-new turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine, featuring Active Fuel Management and a start-stop system. Maximum output is 237 horsepower (177 kW) at 5000 RPM, and 258 pound-feet (350 N⋅m) torque at 1500–4000 RPM. It will be paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

Trim levels[edit]

Trim levels on the XT4 include "Luxury", "Premium Luxury", and "Sport".[12]
