The 2019 Cadillac XT4 Towing Package: Feature Spotlight17
The recently-launched 2019 Cadillac XT4 offers various packages, one of which is the Trailering Package, which is colloquially known as the towing package.
Let’s take a closer look at what the optional package offers and what it does in Cadillac’s new compact CUV.
The 2019 Cadillac XT4 towing package includes two components: a heavy-duty cooling system (RPO Code V08) and a 2-inch receiver with a wiring connector.
The heavy-duty cooling system ensures stable operating engine temperatures during towing, which is vital to the proper operation of any vehicle, with the XT4 being no exception. Meanwhile, the wiring connector makes hooking up the trailer’s lights much easier for the end-user, while the 2-inch receives can receive the trailer’s hitch.
It’s worth noting that the upgraded cooling system, wiring connector and receiver are only available with the Trailering Package, and cannot be added to the vehicle in any other way… at least at the time of this writing.
Opting for the 2019 Cadillac XT4 towing package uncovers the crossover’s full towing capacity, which is 3500 pounds. That’s not an earth-shattering towing capacity… but it’s enough to tow a U-Haul moving trailer, a pair of jetskis, or other toys that don’t exceed the 3,500-pound mark.
Assigned RPO Code V92, the Cadillac XT4 towing package is available on all models, including the base Luxury as well as the up-level Premium Luxury and Sport.
The XT4 Towing Package by itself is a $300 option, which isn’t much considering it adds a significant amount of potential functionality to the small luxury crossover.
More 2019 Cadillac XT4 Features
Overall, the new XT4 offers many features, many of which have never been offered by a Cadillac vehicle, such as the all-new 2.0L turbo LSY engine, next-generation Electronic Precision Shift, Electro-Hydraulic Braking Assist, the new “Y trim level” strategy, rotary controllers for the infotainment system, and more.
Another new-to-Cadillac feature is Near-Field Communication technology. NFC for short, the tech aims to improve and simplify the process of pairing a smartphone to the vehicle.
The 2019 XT4 starts at $35,790 (including destination); in the United States, the model went on sale in late August. The vehicle assembled at the GM Fairfax plant in Kansas City.
The new XT4 is a key product for Cadillac, as it gives the brand an entry in a large and growing segment in which it wasn’t present previously.

Comment deleted because I’m a moron making a 100% political comment that has nothing to do with the topic in question.
I don’t disagree with anything you said, but what does any of that have to do with the XT4 towing package? As a Republican I’m voting it down because keep the politics out of vehicle discussions. This isn’t the forum for that.
As a Democrat, I disagree with you and the censorship that goes on here. No wonder people like me are leaving the Democratic Party in droves and possibly voting Trump in 2020. Polls show he will be re-elected in a landslide. No wonder as I was disgusted how our party handled the Brett Kavanagh Supreme Court hearings and glad to see him confirmed.
Now now, don’t be a sore loser, lefty Gogetem.
Some day you will have to get over that Trump Derangement Syndrome, realize and accept you lost to Trump, and Move On… Especially when Trump wins again in 2020. 6 more years.
To think this guy worked forGM at one point! Scary thought…

Left-wing sore loser alert.
Hope you can get over your Trump Derangement Syndrome some day…
XT4 is boring… If the Ct5 is the same boring car… I’m washing my hands.
Have you driven one? It’s not that boring.
Cadillac’s problem is not driving. They drive well. But they look dated and boring.
If it is looks you’re talking about, my next question is… have you seen one in person?
Big downer for entry level buyers, power lift tailgate is not an option on base model you have to move up a level to get it thus negating the entry level pricing. I was considering trading in my 2011 base SRX on the XT4 but the upscale model prices it out of my range. JMO
Cadillac is trying to sell the XT4 as a little brother to the XT5 and that with it’s reworked 2.0L DOHC-4v 4-cyl turbo generating 237 hp offering the best of both world a satisfying ride with good mileage; but with a 2019 Cadillac XT4 Sport topping out at over $55K, one can already hear the demand for a V6.
Anybody know what heat seat is in the XT4. When I buy it I would like the heat seats not to start on fire. I would also like the heat seat to come on with the auto start like advertised not to be disconnected later. More GM-Cadillac greatness and excellent customer service HA.
1. The XT4 uses an entirely different architecture for the seat heating feature compared to the CTS, which was engineered from 2010-2013 (that’s 8-5 years ago)… so there is really no reason to assume that it would have the same issues.
2. Cadillac is taking care of the vehicles (third-gen CTS in certain model years) impacted by the heat seating recall… so the disconnect is temporary until they have the components to permanently address the issue. I would encourage those who think recalls are somehow a bad thing to reconsider their stance, since they are ultimately positive.
3. All that is really beside the point, since the XT4 does not have the automatic seat heat function. The only auto heating function is for the steering wheel… not the seats.
I prefer a RECALL they are somewhat positive, they do cause undo stress on customers however. I believe ALL automakers should be forced to RECALL ALL known defective parts ” CUE “. GM will however only repair defective parts if forced, no more do the right thing, just profits at all costs loyalty be dammed.
Recalls are for safety-related issues only.
Warranties cover parts that fail. Warranties (like automobiles) have a shelf life.
If manufactures of consumer products had to involuntarily replace every part that failed, they wouldn’t stay in business very long.
I am talking warranty well in the warranty period. There is no body of force to keep warranty on the up and up. At GM-Cadillac there is no standard, this is covered this is not. You have no warranty on this but you do on that. You get a loaner for this but not for that.
State lemon laws address some of these issues, but it saddens me GM-Cadillac has lowered its standards that a lemon law, enforced by a state, sets the handling of a warranty.
I realize the majority of GM vehicles are good otherwise they would be bankrupt again already, but the owners who have a legitimate problem and it is or was handled poorly have no recourse.
This is what a new customer is not informed of. And not only a new customer but someone who has not purchased new for a while. If you have trouble with a GM product it is first up to the dealer not GM on weather it is covered. Say you buy a new Cadillac in California and move to the Midwest. If you have trouble you take it to the nearest Cadillac dealer. If they don’t want to take care of you they don’t have to, dealers are independent. Sure you can file a complaint with GM against the dealer however that doesn’t help you solve your issue, and in many cases makes it worse. You can drive to another dealer and spend more time and money. Eventually you will find a great dealer that will take care of you if they can. If the product has no fix and the answer is there is nothing anyone can do, that is normal operation, there is technically no warranty. All you can do is sell or trade your vehicle and we all know what that costs.
Look at something as simple as a vehicle battery. There is no longer a prorated warranty just a X year replacement because pro rated was just like no warranty. Look at most manufactures warranty of stuff not vehicles, you have a X year warranty, if they can’t fix it you get a new one. What other product with a warranty, after you buy it, do you not get fixed or replaced. This idea of ” well that is normal operation” what is normal operation. I was told the normal operation of most GM vehicles is learn and change. If the operation of your vehicle changes from the time of test drive and purchase, what is normal operation. You are now being told by the manufacturer that the product you bought with warranty, that has changed from the time of purchase that is what it is supposed to happen so that is not covered under warranty.
A warranty from GM-Cadillac is simply a sales tool. A GM-Cadillac warranty will cover what they want when they want and if you don’t like it go buy something else, after you have bought one or there vehicles. Bumper to bumper what, when. I just think the general population should be aware of this.
I would like to ask if any automaker has ever went broke or bankrupt for fixing to many of there vehicles. Toyota fixed the runaway didn’t go broke. GM fixed keys for ignition switches, didn’t go broke. Look at the recalls they all have, the recalls are not making them go broke. Seems to me vehicle companies have been going out of business forever for not selling vehicles not for fixing them. Maybe the new Cadillac could try to fix ALL the faulty vehicles they sell and just see how many vehicles that could sell for them, instead of spending all the time and money trying to convince you they care, but will not do anything to fix your troubles.
Just an opinion.
