Cadillac XT4 Debuts


The brand new XT4 was just recently unveiled at the New York Auto Show. All XT4 models will be powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharger 4 cylinder engine, with cylinder deactivation, stop/start and a nine speed transmission. The engine outputs 237hp and 258lb-ft of torque and fuel economy is expected to be around 27mpg combined. XT4 will have a storage capacity of 48.9 cubic feet (1,385 L), with 22.5 cu-ft in the trunk. Pricing starts at $35,790 including destination and goes on sale this fall. It can already be pre ordered and is available in three different trims: Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport.

The XT4 looks great overall and the interior layout is very clean with the wide display sitting lower than one would expect, almost level with the instrument cluster. For a turbo, the manufacturer-estimated 30 mpg highway is pretty good, even beats most of its competitors.

Its only downfall so far seems to be its off the line acceleration, which shouldn't be much of a deal breaker for those in the market for a luxury crossover. Have to admit that I really like the vertical design of Cadillac's lights, and I think it gives the XT4 a much more aggressive look. Also glad that is has a traditional automatic transmission as opposed to a CVT that seems to be increasingly offered as standard on crossovers.

The new XT5 does seem to be lacking standard active safety systems, as it looks like they are all restricted to the optional Drive Assist and Driver Awareness packages, which is ridiculous imo. And why hasn't Cadillac moved its Super Cruise tech across their lineup?

I want to say that Cadillac is taking a soft approach to these new models as a way to test the market but at this rate it's not looking good. Even the CT6 as nice as it is, turned out to have horrible sales. The future is not looking good for them.

The problem that Cadillac is running into is that most of their new models as of late, are in segments that are already very competitive. The premium/luxury features which used to set them above rivals, has now all become standard kit. This is why I agree that they should focus on tech and getting that autopilot system into all their vehicles.

Cadillac can still offer more standard features than their rivals without going the Tesla route with an autopilot system. Auto cruise control as standard should be more than enough to give the XT4 an edge.

Cadillac needs to take a page out of what Cadillac is doing and already they have some of that honed in the next Corvette. A vette-based Cadillac supercar that introduced a host of German rivaling features can have a great effect here.

Well I was referring to their Super Cruise system, which is a fairly restrictive autonomous system. It has a lot more safeguards in place than Tesla's autopilot to prevent it from being misused. Sooner or later its going to make its way across their lineup, so why not offer it as an additional option?
