China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has just leaked images of the refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4, revealing the appearance and other details of the Cadillac compact crossover’s mid-cycle update.
Chinese authorities again got ahead of General Motors by releasing the official SAIC-GM joint venture statement for the refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4, which includes exterior pictures and general model information. China’s auto industry regulator not only scooped the 2024 XT4 from the automaker in the local market, but also showed off the vehicle’s final design ahead of its anticipated global debut in North America.
As GM Authority first teased back in August when we captured a prototype of the less-disguised vehicle, the upcoming 2024 Cadillac XT4 adopts a new front-end design that completely revamps its image and gives it a more sophisticated look. The first thing that stands out is the new split headlamp assembly that includes a more pronounced boomerang-shaped vertical element, slim horizontal daytime running lights, and lower-positioned main headlamps.
In addition, the 2024 Cadillac XT4’s front fascia features a larger grille with an upper bezel inspired by the brand’s latest models, as well as a longer hood and bumper with aggressive air inlets. The rest of the bodywork remains largely the same, with the exception of a discreet center backup light at the rear, and larger exhaust outlets.
There will be no mechanical changes for the refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4 in the Chinese market. The crossover will retain the existing mild-hybrid configuration as the standard powertrain, pairing the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY engine with an electric motor and 48V battery that generate 233 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It will be offered in FWD and AWD trims exclusively with GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission.
The upcoming refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4 is expected to debut during the first half of this year in both China and North America, as a major and much-needed refresh for Cadillac’s compact crossover. Besides the front end, the other major change to the 2024 XT4 will be a new interior design with a large curved display for the driver’s instrument panel and infotainment touchscreen, as well as more overall refinement.
