The Cadillac XT4 represents the fourth model year of the first-generation small luxury crossover, for which it sees very few changes and updates. Here’s exactly what was new for the 2022 XT4.
The 2022 Cadillac XT4 model line remains the same as it was in 2021, consisting of Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels (per Cadillac’s Y trim level strategy). All models are available in either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configurations.
On the outside, the 2022 Cadillac XT4 sees the deletion of three existing colors and the addition of three new ones. The three deleted hues are Shadow Metallic, Garnet Metallic, and Autumn Metallic, all of which were available at an extra charge for the 2010 model year.
The three new colors are Latte Metallic, Galactic Gray Metallic, and Rosewood Metallic, though images of these new hues are not yet available.
Additionally, the red caliper option has been deleted, leaving the luxury crossover with no painted caliper options.
On the inside, the 2022 Cadillac XT4 sees the deletion of Near Field Communication (NFC) mobile device pairing, as GM Authority was first to report. The vehicle continues to offer Bluetooth as well as Wireless Apple CarPlay and Wireless Android Auto capability for compatible devices.
Another small interior change relates to the leatherette seats, which have had their name changed to Inteluxe seats. The material itself remains the same, with the change being exclusive to the name assigned to them.
The 2022 Cadillac XT4 continues to offer the same engine as the 2021 XT4 model: the turbocharged 2.0L LSY four-cylinder making 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to GM’s 9-speed automatic transmission.
In Europe, the XT4 is available with the 2.0L LSQ diesel engine.
|Model Year||Vehicle||Engine||Fuel||Aspiration||Driven Wheels||Transmission||Power (hp / kW @ RPM)||Torque (lb-ft / Nm @ RPM)||Axle Ratio|
|2019 – present||Cadillac XT4||2.0L LSY I4||Gasoline||Turbocharged||FWD or AWD||9-Speed Auto (M3H)||235 / 175 @ 5000||258 / 350 @ 1500-4000||3.47|
2022 Cadillac XT4 Availability
The ongoing microchip shortage has significantly impeded production of the Cadillac XT4 crossover at the GM Fairfax plant in Kansas. The assembly line was originally scheduled to resume August 23rd, but GM then extended downtime until September 20th. The plant has since been running at full capacity.
Looking ahead, we expect the first-generation XT4 luxury crossover to live on thru at least the 2025 model year. A replacement will likely come in the form of an electric model.
