As reported back in November 2021, select 2022 model-year Cadillac vehicles were manufactured without the heated steering wheel feature, and among the affected vehicles was the Cadillac XT4. Now, GM Authority has learned the dealers have begun retrofitting the missing heated steering wheel to units concerned by this constraint.
Certain 2022 Cadillac XT4 units built between December 6th, 2021 and May 1st, 2022 were built without the heated steering wheel (RPO code KI3), if they were ordered with this feature. In addition, some 2023 XT4 examples built towards the beginning of production were also affected by this constraint. All affected vehicles can be identified by the RPO code 00G on the window sticker.
For both 2022 and 2023 models, it’s worth noting that the heated steering wheel was normally included and only available with the Cold Weather Package (RPO code Y19), which itself was optional across the entire trim lineup – Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport.
The Cadillac XT4 wasn’t the only Caddy model to be affected by this constraint, as multiple models across Cadillac’s vehicle lineup were built without a heated steering wheel:
In addition, the 2022 XT4 also dealt with a heated and ventilated seat constraint.
As a reminder, the Cadillac XT4 is the luxury marque’s entry-level crossover, and is set to receive a mid-cycle refresh for the 2024 model year. This revision will include a reworked front fascia and new lighting arrangement, as well as a new widescreen digital instrument panel and infotainment screen.
In regards to powertrain, the refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4 is expected to carry over the same turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine as the current 2023 model, with output rated at 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Production is scheduled to kick off at the GM Fairfax Assembly plant in Kansas City on April 24th, 2023.
