Some Quick Takes On Cadillac’s XT4 Designed With The Future In Mind (Video)

XT4

Cadillac’s first-ever XT4 is an all-new compact SUV tailored for the next generation of luxury customers.

Developed on an exclusive compact SUV architecture, Cadillac’s entry in the industry’s fastest-growing luxury segment delivers expressive design, confident performance, spacious accommodations and new technologies.

The XT4 also debuts Cadillac’s new global “Y” trim strategy, with distinctive Premium Luxury and Sport models built on the well-equipped Luxury (base) trim.

Specific content and styling cues tailor the Premium Luxury and Sport trims to different customer tastes and preferences.

XT4 Sport models feature a gloss black mesh grille inspired by Cadillac’s high-performance V-Series models, gloss black window moldings

and specific Sport alloy wheel choices. Luxury and Premium Luxury models feature grilles with bright metallic accents, satin aluminum window moldings and satin chrome-accented door handles.

All models feature advanced LED lighting technology, front and rear, with front LED low- and high-beam headlamps and an LED-illuminated light blade for the daytime running lamps.

Cadillac’s vertical L-shaped lighting signature is stretched horizontally, emphasizing the XT4’s confident stance.

Inside, a bold, refined and spacious cabin echoes the exterior design themes, offering a great balance of style and comfort.\

It also integrates Cadillac’s latest user experience system1to make it among the most connected vehicles in its class.

With intuitive, smartphone-like functionality, it’s a dynamic platform that leverages the cloud to adjust personalization, navigation and other features over time to meet the changing needs of the owner.

An all-new Cadillac 2.0L Turbo engine drives all models.

It features new, efficiency-enhancing technologies (EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway with 2WD) including Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation); and it is coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission with next-generation Electronic Precision Shift.
