This past February, we got a few sneak peaks and hints at what this new subcompact crossover will offer, in terms of both looks and capabilities. We at Heritage Cadillac weren’t disappointed. As SUVs and CUVs become ever more popular — we saw booming sales in 2017 — Cadillac is meeting the market demand with the all-new XT4, which offers luxurious, upscale features in a sleek, classy package.
The 2019 Cadillac XT4 slots in perfectly with the rest of the Cadillac SUV/CUV lineup. The classic and ever-popular Escalade sets the standard for high-end luxury SUVs, and the XT5 — which is larger than the XT4 — is perfect if you are looking to add a bit more adventure and adventurous style to your life. Cadillac is also working on developing a three-row CUV, which we at Heritage Cadillac can’t wait to see.
Although we don’t have many specifics on what the XT4 will come equipped with, we’re expecting the highest of quality. It will likely feature a turbo-charged four-cylinder engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, available all-wheel drive, and the most up-to-date safety and entertainment technology available. It will also be constructed with materials that are durable, stylish, and high-end.
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.
