Cadillac vehicles, despite occupying the top rung of the GM portfolio, were not shielded from the limited heated and ventilated seat supply problems. GM recently began retrofitting certain vehicles that were affected by the shortage with the features they are missing, and has now extended this Customer Satisfaction Program to include the 2022 Cadillac XT4 compact crossover.
GM Authority learned this week that GM dealers have begun to get in touch with owners of 2022 Cadillac XT4 models whose vehicles were affected by the microchip shortage to receive heated front seat, heated rear seat and ventilated front seat retrofits. This work will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owners.
Heated front seats (RPO code KA1) are normally included and only available with the Cold Weather Package (RPO code Y19) for all three 2022 Cadillac XT4 trim levels, which include Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport. This is the same case for heated outboard rear seats (RPO KA6).
Meanwhile, ventilated front seats (RPO KU9) are included with either the Comfort and Convenience Package (RPO WPC) or Comfort Package (RPO Y55) with the Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels. This feature is not offered for the Luxury trim level in any capacity.
As a reminder, the 2022 Cadillac XT4 is equipped with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 235 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. Under the body panels, the crossover rides on the GM E2 platform, with production taking place at the GM Fairfax plant in Kansas City, which is also responsible for production of the Chevy Malibu sedan. The 2023 model-year Cadillac XT4 began rolling off the production line at the facility on June 10th, 2022.
