The 2023 Cadillac XT4 will usher in the fifth model year for the first-generation crossover nameplate, set to introduce only a few changes and updates compared to the previous 2022 model year. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the 2023 Cadillac XT4 will delete three exterior colors previously offered for the 2022 model year.
Per GM Authority sources, the following three paint options will no longer be available with the introduction of the 2023 Cadillac XT4 (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Twilight Blue Metallic (GA0)
- Radiant Silver Metallic (GAN)
- Infrared Tintcoat (GSK)
All three of these colors were available on all trim levels for the 2022 Cadillac XT4, with Radiant Silver Metallic offered at no extra charge, Twilight Blue Metallic offered for an extra $624, and Infrared Tintcoat offered for an extra $1,225. Twilight Blue Metallic and Radiant Silver Metallic were available in conjunction with all five 2022 Cadillac XT4 interior colors, while Infrared Tintcoat was available in conjunction with Jet Black, Jet Black with Cinnamon accents, Light Platinum / Jet Black, and Light Wheat / Jet Black with Red accents. Infrared Tintcoat was not available in conjunction with Sedona / Jet Black.
Moving forward, the 2023 Cadillac XT4 will replace the three departing exterior colors with two new hues, including:
- Radiant Red Tintcoat (GNT)
- Argent Silver Metallic (GXD)
Argent Silver Metallic will be available for an extra charge, while Radiant Red Tintcoat will not include an extra charge.
The Cadillac XT4 was originally set for a mid-cycle refresh, but due to complications, the refresh was pushed back to the 2023 model year. Going forward, it looks as through the Cadillac XT4 refresh will be delayed yet again, this time until after the 2023 model year.
Currently, the Cadillac XT4 is available with a single powerplant option, namely the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. The four-cylinder connects to the GM 9-speed automatic transmission, while under the skin is the GM E2 platform. Production takes place at the GM Fairfax Assembly plant in Kansas City, Kansas.
