Cadillac XT4 Spied, Ditches Some Camouflage At The Rear5
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.

Am I the only person that is really confused with this upcoming XT4 CUV.
What will it compete with in the Market place? The BMW X3? If so, doesn’t it look small and FWD’ish haha
So will the XT3 be an X1 size?
Does the XT5 just battle the Lincoln MKX and the Lexus RX?
Cannot believe Cadillac had all these years to figure things out and they will hammer us with FWD frumpy CUV’s instead of utilizing Sigma/Omega.
from the looks of it the XT4 seems to be better proportioned than its stubby XT5 brother. these new platforms are very flexible and can be shortened, widened, etc. I think we will see alpha crossovers after this generation (on alpha2 ) but based on the sales success of the Xt5, a few well executed front drive based crossovers will satisfy most customers & by well executed I mean good proportions, nice wheels, and a V sport trim with a turbo V6.. & im pretty sure this will compete with the bmx X3 in size but maybe not price.
I’ve always admired the little Infiniti crossovers, at least when it comes to their styling.
I saw what I guess was a new QX30 yesterday and personally think Cadillac’s going to be very, very, very hard pressed to compete if this shows up looking like a scaled down XT5.
Does anyone else think it has hints of a first gen SRX, you can kind of see it in the headlights and taillights if you look close enough. I hope they do mimic it a little bit, always loved the way that car looked.
An updated 1st gen. SRX would be cool . But siting higher than the old one did . Something similar to the Volvo XC-90.
The front end in the pictures look longer than I would have thought , is it the camo or will it have a longer front end ?
I like the dimensions . Also hope this will show more of the new face of Cadillac in some form and not just a small XT5 .
