The 2023 Cadillac XT4 is the fifth model year of the current first-gen nameplate, debuting just a few updates and changes over the preceding 2022 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned when production of the 2023 Cadillac XT4 will officially get under way.
According to GM Authority sources, production of the 2023 Cadillac XT4 is scheduled to begin on Friday, June 10th, 2022. Production will once again take place at the GM Fairfax Assembly plant in Kansas City, Kansas. The Fairfax facility is also responsible for production of the Chevy Malibu sedan.
Going forward, the 2023 Cadillac XT4 will introduce a revised exterior paint options list, with Twilight Blue Metallic (paint code GA0), Radiant Silver Metallic (paint code GAN), and Infrared Tintcoat (paint code GSK) deleted after the 2022 model year. In their stead, the 2023 Cadillac XT4 will offer two new hues, including Radiant Red Tintcoat (paint code GNT) and Argent Silver Metallic (paint code GXD). Argent Silver Metallic will not cost anything extra, while Radiant Red Tintcoat will require an extra charge.
The Cadillac XT4 was originally slated to receive a mid-cycle refresh prior to the introduction of the 2023 model year, but as a result of complications, the refresh was delayed. Now, it appears as though the Cadillac XT4 refresh has once again been delayed, this time until after the 2023 model year.
As for the specs, the Cadillac XT4 is offered with only one engine option, specifically the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine. Output is rated at 235 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. Routing output to the wheels is the GM nine-speed automatic transmission. Under the body panels, the XT4 rides on the GM E2 platform.
