Most Expensive 2019 Cadillac XT4 Will Cost $56,6359
Earlier this month, Cadillac opened pre-orders for its first compact crossover, the XT4. Interested buyers can reserve their own 2019 Cadillac XT4 now, but in the announcement, the brand also spilled more pricing details.
According to the “Reserve Yours” link on Cadillac.com, we know the most expensive XT4 will set a buyer back $56,635. The brand posted starting and maximum prices for the XT4’s trim levels, which shows just how pricey the compact crossover can be.
It’s unclear what equipment will be onboard to rack up the $56,000 price tag, but it’s specifically for a range-topping Premium Luxury of Premium Sport model. The XT4 introduces the brand’s latest “Y” trim strategy. All XT4’s begin with a “Luxury” trim, and buyers can choose to select a Sport of Luxury hierarchy from there.
Sport models add, well, more sporting touches, including clear LED taillights over solid red units for the Luxury trim. Sport models also receive blacked-out exterior elements over added chrome for Luxury models.
The least expensive Premium Luxury or Premium Sport model will cost $40,290, per the website, while a base Luxury XT4 will start at the previously announced $35,790 point, and climb to $43,865. All prices include a mandatory $995 destination charge.
We likely won’t see a full XT4 configurator for at least a couple months, but we now know Cadillac’s compact crossover can become a pricey little thing pretty quickly.

The bulk of them will problem sell for around $45,000. Most buyers will opt for the Premium Luxury or Sport trims at $40,000 and tack on a few options.
“It’s unclear what equipment will be onboard to rack up the $56,000 price tag, but it’s specifically for a range-topping Premium Luxury of Premium Sport model. ”
Just go the order guide and tick all the “A” boxes. That would likely be a Premium Luxury model with:
Cold Weather Package
Comfort and Convenience Package (power/massage/lumbar seats, power liftgate)
Technology Package (8″ gauge cluster, HUD)
Driver Awareness Package
Driver Assist Package
Enhanced Visibility Package (rear camera mirror)
Plus sunroof and 20″ wheels.
There is no way anyone will spend $56K for an XT4 . That’s XT5 money . Some of these safety features like the Drivers Awareness package should by now be standard equipment on any new GM product . A lot of their competitors offer that and more as standard for even the lower trim models ( Maxda’s CX-5 for ex. )
They probably won’t sell that many at that price anyway , most dealerships will order lower cost XT4’s to keep them below XT5 levels . Even where i live in the snow belt , the biggest seller of the XT5 is the FWD. Luxury model . And they will have a few FWD. Premium Luxury’s and even fewer AWD models including the Platinum .
A fully loaded BMW X1 goes up to $52K and it is an older model than the XT4.
Cadillac hasn’t announced any engine options available for the new XT4 CUV other than the LSY 2.0L DOHC-4v 4-cyl turbo as the most expensive option for the XT4 might be AWD; but Cadillac doesn’t have a lot of wiggle room as there is plenty of competition and this includes Chevrolet’s Equinox which top tier model is the Premier Diesel with a starting price of $35K.
Glad to know I won’t have to wait around to find out how much it was going to cost me. Can you imagine what it would have cost with the promised, and now forgotten plug. Well, that pretty much takes it off my list.
I’m a little surprised (and disappointed) that Cadillac hasn’t posted any You Tube videos of the XT4 team to talk about their work in designing, engineering, and manufacturing this new crossover. They did a really great job and I think Cadillac would get a great marketing opportunity from doing that and amplify the buzz they got at the time of the unveiling. Getting to know the team adds the human element behind the crossover and a greater sense of their thought processes and decisions.
I saw one on eastbound I-94 in Jackson, MI about an hour ago. In my rear-view I see the headlights and I think ‘I thought those lights were only on the upcoming new ones’. When it passed me I knew it was the 2019 because of the taillights and the manufacturers plate.
