About the Cadillac XT4

Precision-engineered for an entirely new generation of luxury shoppers, the Cadillac XT4 sets the benchmark for which all other compact luxury SUVs try to emulate. The XT4 stands out from the ordinary with a chiseled side profile featuring bold proportions. Beneath the hood lies a standard 2.0L Turbocharged DOHC I4 engine featuring Active Fuel Management along with an optional twin-clutch, decoupling all-wheel drive system. Custom-tailor your driving experience to suit your preferences with its standard Driver Select Mode.

You’ll also discover the same progressive elegance inside the bespoke cabin of the Cadillac XT4. Flowing arcs and character lines cascade across the dash, creating an aura of both spaciousness and luxury. Positioned directly in the center of the dash, the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) delivers an intuitive experience featuring an expansive 8-inch HD touchscreen. Thanks to a total of three distinctive trim levels and an expressive 8-color palette of exterior color choices — the Cadillac XT4 is designed to reflect a personality as unique as your own.

What the Critics Say

“Sometimes, all the propulsion hardware comes together in a particularly pleasing way: the amount and delivery of power, the sweet transmission and the all-wheel-drive system (when selected, which we recommend in this instance). The Cadillac XT4 is one of those times.” — Kelley Blue Book

“With no shortage of choices in the small-luxury SUV marketplace, the Cadillac XT4 will appeal to buyers who value a sharp-edged design, a spacious interior, and a traditionally upright, SUV-like driving position.” — Car and Driver

What’s New for 2021

There are several exciting updates and revisions which have been made to the already popular Cadillac XT4 for the 2021 model year. Luxury trim levels receive a new standard power rear liftgate and the option of leather upholstery. Additionally, these trims can be equipped with a new optional Driver Awareness package that includes automatic high-beam headlamps and lane-keeping assist. Sport trims receive red-painted brake calipers. Finally, two new colors join the available palette: Infrared Tintcoat and Wave Metallic.
