Cadillac has rallied around the fact that 2017 was not its year to shine. Instead, 2018 will kick off the party with 2019 and 2020 as big years, too.
Automotive News recently spoke with the brand’s president Johan de Nysschen at the 2017 LA Auto Show, and he confirmed the XT4 crossover is coming early next year. The crossover, likely riding on General Motors’ E2 platform, will debut in early 2018 and go on sale during the fourth quarter of next year. Following the XT4, the CTS’ replacement, likely called the CT5, will show face.
Then there’s the large seven-seat Cadillac crossover, which will also potentially show face sometime in 2019. However, we have reason to believe we should take this product’s debut with a grain of salt.
Cadillac sales in the United States have been anything but stellar as the market shifts to crossovers and away from sedans—which Cadillac’s current lineup favors. The XT4 will mark the first product developed and launched wholly under de Nysschen and will likely chart the executive’s future in the brand.
