The 2019 Cadillac XT4 is getting its winter testing in. New spy shots show the upcoming compact Cadillac crossover frolicking about in the snow in Lapland, Finland.
Cadillac has kept pretty darn quiet on details surrounding its first new product since the 2017 XT5, but we have reason to believe the Cadillac XT4 will not be riding on D2XX or a variant of C1XX. Judging by its size, Cadillac may be utilizing a different platform altogether. Power will likely come from four-cylinder turbocharged engines and we may even see a plug-in variant, too.
What’s really throwing us off is the front fascia’s design. It’s possible the XT4 will usher in a new corporate face for Cadillac, inspired by the Escala show car. But, we can see lights moving in a vertical fashion at the front, reminiscent of the XT5. This could be camouflage trickery, though. The Lexus spindle outline also does an excellent job of skewing the design.
We likely have some time before Cadillac is ready to show the XT4 off to the world. The brand has stated a new vehicle will launch every six months starting in 2018. That means we’re likely to see the XT4 show face in early 2018 to come to market by mid-year.
