The legendary XT4 is about to grace us with its presence in dealerships across North America in Fall 2019. Its arrival has been greatly anticipated because it’s a new vehicle of its kind. It’s the first-ever luxury, compact SUV entering Cadillac’s lineup. This big step in Cadillac’s evolution is an exciting one, as it was designed with a new generation in mind: Millennials. Here is everything you need to know about the notorious XT4.
A New Market
Over the last ten years, SUV and crossover sales have skyrocketed and it’s no surprise. With Ford making announcements earlier this year cutting traditional sedan vehicles from their lineup, Cadillac’s unveiling of the XT4 couldn’t have come at a better time. The XT4 fits perfectly in Cadillac’s lineup, filling the luxury compact SUV segment. In this modern age, the younger generation is opting for smaller SUV-type vehicles compared to the extremely small two or four-door vehicles. The SUVs and compact SUVs for that matter offer so much more versatility whether you have a family or you’re a single person carrying around camera equipment, or commuting to a different city for work. This is why the XT4 offers the perfect compatibility, whatever you may need it for. Business or pleasure while maintaining a reasonable price tag of $41,900 CAD.
The XT4 will come in three different trim levels and they all sound amazing: Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport. The Luxury trim will have LED taillamps and headlamps, Rear Park Assist, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Rear Vision Camera and more. The Premium Luxury trim will have leather seating surfaces, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Power Liftgate, and so much more. We could seriously go on and on. Next up is the Sport trim. This level will have Gloss Black exterior trim, sport mesh front grille, carbon fibre interior trim, and our favourite: specific alloy wheel choice for an unlimited amount of possibilities!
How It Compares
Like we said earlier, the XT4 fits perfectly in Cadillac’s lineup. The XT5 is roomy, sophisticated and comfortable with the 3.6L V6 engine. Meanwhile, the Escalade is powerful, luxurious, and compatible with its 6.2L V8 engine seating up to 8 passengers. The all-new XT4 is spirited, confident and keeps you connected while seating up to 5 passengers with a 2.0T 4 cylinder engine. It captures an entirely new look – inside and out. An added bonus is the peace-of-mind safety features that can help you avoid an accident while a high-strength architecture helps protect you.
Colours and More
The XT4 comes in eight different colours and we may be a little biased, but if you didn’t get a few head-turns and wide-eyed looks, we’d be surprised. The luxury compact SUV will be featured in Autumn Metallic, Read Horizon Tintcoat, Atlantic Metallic, Twilight Blue Metallic, Shadow Metallic, Radiant Silver Metallic, Stellar Black Metallic, and Crystal White Tricoat. Let us know which colour you like the best or which one you could see yourself driving. If you’re interested in more information or to preorder your very own XT4, get in touch with us. The anticipated XT4 should be in our showroom in the next few months!
