2019 Cadillac XT4 Tackles The Arctic Circle For Some Last Minute Winter Testing 10

Cadillac’s lineup is heavy on sedans and light on crossovers but that’s about to change as the company is putting the finishing touches on the all-new XT4.

Designed to compete with rivals such as the BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC, the XT4 will become the company’s entry-level crossover when it is launched later this year. Cadillac has been tight-lipped about the model but the latest spy photos show the crossover will follow in the footsteps of the XT5 and feature a prominent grille, a relatively short hood, and angular styling cues.

The camouflage hides most of the styling details but we can see the model will have an upward sweeping beltline, roof rails, and a rakish rear window. Other highlights include a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a dual exhaust system.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen has previously said the model will be offered with an “entirely new series of efficient and powerful engines.” That’s not much to go on but rumors have suggested the crossover could have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces at least 275 hp (205 kW). The engine is expected to be connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and an optional all-wheel drive system. Later down the road, Cadillac is expected to introduce a plug-in hybrid variant.

Reports have suggested the Cadillac XT4 will be built alongside the Chevrolet Malibu at the Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas. This isn’t too surprising as the crossover is expected to ride on the C1XX platform which is related to the E2XX platform which underpins the sedan.

Cadillac XT4 Inches Closer To Production As The First Test Vehicles Roll Off The Assembly Line 8

The compact crossover segment is booming and luxury automakers have been enjoying strong sales of models such as the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes GLC. Cadillac is notably absent from that list but that’s about to change as the company is putting the finishing touches on the all-new XT4.

Designed to slot beneath the larger XT5, the XT4 will become Cadillac’s entry-level crossover when it is launched later this year. The company has been coy on specifics but Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen used to the 2017 Geneva Motor Show to announce the model will be offered with an “entirely new series of efficient and powerful engines.”

There’s no word on specifics but the model is expected to be offered with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission and an optional all-wheel drive system. Spy photographers have also snapped photos of a plug-in hybrid variant which should appeal to eco-conscious buyers.

Cadillac hasn’t said much about the model but Bloomberg is reporting the vehicle will be built at the Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas. The publication says the plant has already begun building test versions of the crossover and states the vehicle will use “similar underpinnings” as the Chevrolet Malibu which is also built at the plant.
