The XT3 is the possible name of an upcoming, unconfirmed small luxury crossover utility vehicle (CUV) from Cadillac.
Following is speculative and unconfirmed information about the Cadillac XT3. This page is a continuous work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis as we await official details from General Motors and Cadillac.
If you notice any inaccuracies about the information provided, please let us know here.
Currently, it’s unclear the direction in which Cadillac will take the XT3. However, based on Cadillac’s new CT/XT vehicle naming convention, we can deduce that it will be:
- A crossover utility vehicle (CUV)
- Small in size, likely mechanically related to the Cadillac CT3
As such, our best guess at this point is that the Cadillac XT3 will be a subcompact crossover with two rows of seating for five passengers.
The XT3 name is the result of a new naming scheme that names:
- All sedans, coupes, and wagons as CT followed by a number designating its order in the lineup
- All crossovers and SUVs as XT followed by a number designating its order in the lineup
General Motors filed a trademark application for the XT3 name with the Untied States Patent and Trademark Office on November 7th, 2014.
Cadillac has yet to announce or confirm an XT3. Even so, it’s possible that vehicle will come to market in the vicinity of calendar year 2018.
We expect the Cadillac XT3 to ride on GM’s Alpha platform.
We expect the Cadillac XT3 to be powered by a family of turbo-charged four-cylinder engines mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
If the XT3 winds up being based on the Alpha architecture like we expect, then standard models will be rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive will be an option.
We expect the Cadillac XT3 to be available as a four-door, compact crossover utility vehicle (CUV).[/tab]
We expect the Cadillac XT3 to offer two rows of seating for five passengers.
Assuming that the Cadillac XT3 will be a compact four-door crossover, it will compete with:
- BMW X3
- Audi Q5
- Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class (previously GLK-Class)
- Acura RDX (upcoming, not yet announced)
- Lexus NX
- Volvo XC60
- Porsche Macan
