We’re still digesting all of the news from the 2018 North American International Auto Show, but there’s reason to look forward to the 2018 New York Auto Show. Cadillac divulged to GM Authority that the 2019 XT4 crossover will indeed make its formal debut in the Big Apple.
Cadillac did not have any other information to share on the XT4 and did not have any announcements for NAIAS this year, but New York will be a different story. General Motors’ luxury brand has used the New York Auto Show to reveal its latest products in recent years, including the Cadillac CT6. Of course, this follows Cadillac’s move to New York City from Detroit, Michigan.
We don’t have many details on the 2019 Cadillac XT4, but it will likely ride on the E2 platform shared with the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu and 2018 Buick Regal. It should usher in Cadillac’s new Escala-inspired design language and we expect a plug-in hybrid will be one of the compact crossover’s powertrain options.
The XT4 is all important to Cadillac. It will mark the first vehicle launched and developed entirely under President Johan de Nysschen and it will rival the luxury car market’s hottest products: compact crossovers. We have high hopes for the XT4. Stay tuned.
