The XT4 will be a compact (C-segment) crossover that launches Cadillac’s product offensive under brand President Johan de Nysschen. The vehicle was originally believe to be called Cadillac XT3, but Cadillac confirmed in March 2017 that it will carry the XT4 moniker.
The XT4 name is the result of a new naming scheme that names:
- All sedans, coupes, and wagons as CT followed by a number designating its order in the lineup
- All crossovers and SUVs as XT followed by a number designating its order in the lineup
General Motors filed a trademark application for the XT4 name with the Untied States Patent and Trademark Office on November 7th, 2014.
Cadillac has announced that the XT4 will launch in calendar year 2018.
We expect that the Cadillac XT4 will ride on GM’s front-drive D2 platform, though some have expressed desire for the vehicle to share the Alpha platform with the Cadillac ATS.
We expect the Cadillac XT4 to be powered by high-output turbo-charged four-cylinder engines mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen has confirmed that the Cadillac XT4 will arrive with with a “new series of efficient and powerful engines.”
In addition, there are rumors that the XT4 will offer a plug-in hybrid option in addition to traditional gasoline and/or diesel engines.
If the XT4 winds up being based on the D2 architecture, then standard models will likely be driven by the front wheels, with all-wheel-drive being available as an option.
