Cadillac’s popular SRX has been discontinued for a few years now, but the XT5 that replaced it has continued to wow SUV drivers in the luxury market. But for those looking for something a bit smaller, Cadillac plans to offer the new XT4 crossover.
According to The Detroit News, Cadillac has officially begun to build test versions of the new XT4 at its plant in Kansas City. This information is based on a tip from those close to the matter, as Cadillac has not yet confirmed officially a production schedule for its XT4. In other words, we cannot say quite when the new XT4 will officially begin production and when it will arrive here at Heritage Cadillac.
We do know that the Cadillac XT4 fills a hole in Cadillac’s lineup for luxury drivers who want the versatility of an SUV but the better maneuverability and fuel economy of a small crossover. The Cadillac XT4 will also be a great job creator and job protector for folks at the Fairfax assembly plant.
Direct competitors of the XT4 include the Audi Q3 and the BMW X3. The XT4 will be built on similar underpinnings as the Chevy Malibu. The Malibu is also made at the Fairfax assembly plant.
Although plans for the XT4 are not official, we at Heritage Cadillac are eager to see this model, which we are sure will prove to be another incredible vehicle in Cadillac’s already impressive lineup.
