Cadillac Now Advertising 2019 XT4 Ahead Of Arrival16
Ahead of the 2019 Cadillac XT4 crossover’s launch this fall, General Motors’ luxury division has begun advertising the vehicle.
According to a Monday report from our sister publication Cadillac Society, online banner ads have appeared for the XT4 luxury crossover. The ads show an image of the vehicle’s front headlight and daytime running light with the words, “All-New Cadillac XT4.” The text shifts to say, “Arriving Fall 2018” and “Reserve Yours Now.”
The XT4 is Cadillac’s first (and crucial) contender in the compact luxury crossover space. Cadillac will also position the crossover at a sub-compact price point but in the compact class. The XT4’s price undercuts all of its direct rivals but starts at a significantly less expensive price.
Speaking of price, the 2019 XT4 will max out at $56,635 for a fully loaded model. Those looking at an entry-level model will find a $35,790 sticker price, which includes a mandatory $995 destination fee.

I’ve been waiting for the release. This thing looks sharp!
I like it as well. I do understand it is a smaller version of the x-5. Would you know if Cadillac will be making a bigger version ( maybe a 3 rd row seating ) in the near future ??
XT7 has been spotted testing.
That should be the 3 row version of the XT5
Thats XT6. XT7 will be RWD, 5 seats.
This is extremely confusing. So the XT7 won’t have 3 rows of seats?
The XT6 is the one seen testing. It will have a 3rd row of seats. It will be FWD/AWD and sit on the same chassis as the XT5 unfortunately.
The XT7 will larger, based on a RWD/AWD chassis, either a variant of the Alpha, or Omega. It will land in 2020 and there is a strong possibly it will offer a V8 option.
The XT8 could possibly be a replacement for the Escalade, will land in late 2021 as a 2022. Sit on a variant of the Omega, definitely have a V8. and, have a base price around $90,000-$100,000……
Not only general advertising , but lease advertising too. Last week received an email from Cadillac advertising a low-mileage 36-month lease for $309. Do not remember money down since I am not interested.
Cadillac should start running TV commercials and print ads for their new XT4 CUV especially as the field is crowded and before someone buys something else.. Cadillac needs to let the public know of what will be available in a couple of months.
Marketing will pick up as this is the first of their new products.
GM was not going to pump a lot of money inn models that were going away or were going to see major changes in the near future.
“Marketing” will likely be tepid at best; a brief period of running footage shots with a lease-offer @ the end.
GM aren’t marketers in the classic sense – they’re retailers. It’s more about deals than branding, and the dalliance (and ineffectiveness ) of ‘Dare Greatly’ only served to reinforce that.
Unless it offers a higher hp engine as an option I am not interested. Looks good to me otherwise, but less hp than my turbo ATS and more weight.
I couldn’t have said it better myself, and have said it in the past. I will however drive one when available just to see and give an honest experienced report.
To be fair SUVs are not known for their sporting intentions. Most people looking to buy an SUV will not be interested in either the engine capacity, horsepower or driving dynamics. These are all moreorless bottom of the list of your average SUV buyer.
Rob and your 7 upvote mates can go elsewhere – I’m sure GM won’t miss you.
It wasn’t until the BMW X5 came out that the category of “Sport SUVs” make themselves known. Soon thereafter they became a category for most SUV manufacturers.
Fleetman, Do you own Cadillac? Our 2005 SRX AWD NorthStar would have run circles around a X5. It also would run circles around our ATS 2.0T. I do agree the average buyer might care. Look the older age Buick Park Ave driver now drive Enclave, and the older Cadillac DTS owner is slowly going XT5. For sure when they get rid of the XTS. But I bought the SRX just for the NorthStar, and if it wasn’t for cost cutting in 98-99-2000 NorthStar would still be a great motor. So I am not saying all Cadillacs need to be high performance, but Cadillac has turned into what is your favorite looking GM because there all the same . And in some cases Cadillac is the WORST GM. Also All us mates have been going elsewhere for years now, and I am pretty sure Cadillac does miss us. 7 a day for 10 years 25,550 mates or more. 25,550 mates at $5000.00 = $127,750,000.00 its a relative world some would miss, others not so much. Step it up Cadillac.
You’re talking through a hole in your head. Congratulations.
The BMW E53 X5 equipped with the N62 engine in 4.8L guise (for the North American market) produced 355 bhp in 2004; then 362 bhp in 2005. Northstar V8 in 2005 produced 320 bhp.
Those “rings ” you talk about must come from Mordor. Keep kidding yourself.
Sorry, fleetman. However I’m glad you so well pointed out the shortcomings of Cadillac in comparison. Also I said circles not rings. So I am confused, you like the LOW HP Cadillacs.
