One of the biggest criticisms of the 2019 Cadillac XT4 has been the treatment of the lower part of the front fascia. Specifically, the all-new XT4 features a gray-black insert on the lower part of the front end, and those that have taken issue with the design have recommended that Cadillac offer the insert in the body color of the small crossover. So, in collaboration with our sister site, Cadillac Society, we have drawn up just that.
Using a photo of the XT4 Sport that we took at the 2018 New York Auto Show, we carefully painted the front clip to match the Autumn Metallic primary exterior color that adorns the rest of the vehicle. The result is what you see on the left, while the original is on the right.
Though the difference is subtle, it does create a sleeker (less rugged) front end appearance. We’ll let you decide in the comments whether that’s a good thing, or not.

The XT4 is Cadillac’s first-ever compact CUV, a crucial segment for the brand to enter in leu of changing market dynamics that is favoring crossovers over other vehicle types likes sedans.
