As suspected, the 2019 Cadillac XT4 will debut at the New York auto show later this month. Before the big reveal, General Motors is teasing its new small crossover in a TV spot that will run during the Academy Awards.
From what we can tell, it looks like the XT4 won’t be a baby version of the XT5. The compact crossover should receive a unique front fascia and bespoke rear lighting elements.
Although GM isn’t showing off the model’s interior in the pre-released 30-second ad, we expect the XT4 to offer the latest CUE infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility as well as a full suite of safety technologies including automatic braking, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability. Under the hood, the XT4 will likely receive a turbocharged four-cylinder engine making at least 250 hp.
The XT4 will help diversify Cadillac’s lineup, which focuses heavily on sedans right now. It will compete against a host of luxury vehicles including the Audi Q3, Lexus NX, and Jaguar E-Pace.
The 2019 Cadillac XT4 will premiere March 27 at the Cadillac House in New York ahead of the New York auto show. The model should arrive this fall.
