First dropping in for the 2019 model year, the Cadillac XT4 is Caddy’s smallest crossover model, kicking off the XT line with sharp styling, seating for five, and compact exterior dimensions. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the XT4 with the following GM Authority Complete Photo Gallery.
This particular model is a 2019 Cadillac XT4 Sport covered in Twilight Blue Metallic paint. Twilight Blue Metallic is an optional hue offered at extra cost, and it looks great with the complementary dark trim bits equipped with the Sport trim level. The Sport trim also comes with a unique grille treatment, body-colored door handles, clear tail lamps, and black roof rails. By contrast, the Luxury trim and Premium trim get bright Galvano trim pieces, chrome door handles, satin aluminum roof rails, red-tinted tail lamps, and a bright accent grille.
This particular 2019 Cadillac XT4 is also equipped with 20-inch RQ9 Twin five-spoke alloy wheels with Diamond Cut/Titan Satin finish wheels. The rollers are only included with the Sport Dynamics Preferred Package, which also tosses in F45 Active Sport Suspension.
The U.S.-spec 2019 XT4 is powered exclusively by the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder LSY gas engine. Output is rated at 237 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. Overseas, the European-spec XT4 mounts the all-new turbodiesel 2.0L inline four-cylinder LSQ, with output rated at 170 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. As we covered previously, there is currently no V6 engine planned for the XT4.
The GM nine-speed automatic transmission is on deck for cog swaps, while both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive work to put the power down.
Looking ahead, the Cadillac XT4 is expected to offer wireless Apple CarPlay and Around Auto with either the 2021i (2021 interim) or 2022 model year. Unfortunately, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the rollout of 2021 model year vehicles, including the XT4.
