Cadillac needs the upcoming XT4 crossover to be a hit, not another bunt. While the 2017 Cadillac XT5 and Escalade continue to carry the brand’s sales, the Cadillac XT4 will arrive sometime in 2018 to begin the brand’s flood of new product for two years. Now, the crossover has been spied yet again, this time out in Connecticut.
While the front seems to have gained additional cladding, the rear looks to have dropped some of the camouflage, allowing us to get a better look at the rear, as well as the B- and C-pillars, too. The white chunks of camouflage at the rear do their best to mimic tail lamps, but it still looks like the XT4 will take inspiration from the Escalade with tall, vertical lights, judging by where there’s actually light emitting from.
Rebuking other reports, we have serious doubts the Cadillac XT4 is sitting on General Motors’ D2XX platform, which underpins the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain. Judging by its length and proportions, this looks closer to a C1XX derivative of sorts.
We’ll likely see the XT4 show its face early next year after Cadillac confirmed the XT4 will be the first all-new product to launch in 2018.
