Cadillac's Latest Crossover Coming This Fall

  Cadillac's Latest Crossover Coming This Fall Cadillac's latest crossover, the compact XT4, is arriving at dealers this fall. It will launch a new trim level strategy for the brand, in a new segment, and starts at under $40,000. The XT4 was revealed at the New York auto show last month. The small luxury crossover will come with a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is an all-new design making 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The gearbox is a nine-speed automatic, and all-wheel drive is offered. Cadillac's new trim strategy will give more distinction to the Premium Luxury and Sport trims that sit above the entry Luxury trim. The top models each have unique 20-inch wheel designs and the Sport model adds gloss black trim in place of the chrome on other trims, and a V-Series inspired mesh grille. Sport models will also have an available active suspension damping system. All XT4s will get an 8.0-inch touchscreen that debuts a new version of Cadillac's CUE infotainment system. It adds a rotary controller for volume and seek functions in place of the previous Cadillac touch-slide controls. When the XT4 arrives in the fall, prices will start at $39,900.

Refreshed Cadillac XT 5 Spied, But Photos Potentially Show Something More. While the body is undeniably an XT 5 , this doesn’t appear to be an ordinary mid-size crossover. Foremost, the wheels are gigantic for the test mule, which gives it an incredibly tall stance.

A prototype was recently spied undergoing hot weather testing in Europe . Besides this model, Cadillac already has the smaller XT4 and is working on a big 3-row luxury crossover. Beneath the camouflage, the refreshed XT 5 appears to have a sort of black mesh upper grille, instead of the

Getting ready for a debut early next year.

With the debut of the new XT4 in New York, Cadillac also has plans to refresh its larger XT5 for 2020. Our spy photographers captured the new SUV on road new GM’s Milford Proving Grounds, hiding updated features both front and back, particularly the Escala-inspired grille and front fascia, and some revisions to the rear bumper. While most of the body goes unchanged, the front fascia is covered up by camouflage, hiding a design likely inspired by the Escala concept we saw in 2016 – which itself could hit the production line in 2021.

Cadillac XT 5 Road Test . As the ATS, CTS, and CT6 all demonstrate, Cadillac can build brilliant-driving sedans. Body lean is kept in check, and the SUV remained secure even when pushed to its limits around our test track.

As far as we can see so far, Cadillac will be trying to give the XT5 a sportier appearance with a new black mesh upper grille, which will be combined with slightly larger and more aggressive openings in the lower part of the bumper. For a contrast, the changes to the bumper design, both up front and at the back, will be minimal. Our spies also suggest the headlights will get new internal graphics and will probably be connected to the fog lights below the main lighting clusters.

The same conservative approach will be seen in the cabin, too, where Cadillac will keep the changes down to the minimum. Most likely, the XT5 will get the company’s semi-autonomous systems package, Super Cruise, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. It’s one of the most advanced self-driving technologies in production today and allows drivers hands-free highway driving on specific roads.

Three-Row Cadillac XT6 SUV Caught Testing

  Three-Row Cadillac XT6 SUV Caught Testing The new SUV should make its debut before the end of the year. First came the XT5 (succeeding the SRX, of course), followed recently by the smaller XT4. Now Cadillac is working on an SUV that’s even larger than the two. The aptly named Cadillac XT6 will join the range as the flagship SUV alongside the CT6 flagship sedan. Details on the new SUV are still pretty slim, but our spy photographers managed to capture the high-riding vehicle testing ahead of its debut. The three-row SUV will rival luxury vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Acura MDX, Infiniti QX60, and Audi Q7, among others.

Crossover fans will be happy to hear the refreshed XT5 will likely receive a new powertrain, namely a 2.0-liter inline-four turbo engine. It will be offered alongside the 310-horsepower (231-kilowatts), 3.6-liter V6, but will be positioned above it as a more expensive and dynamic option. Word on the street is a mild hybrid version with a nine-speed automatic, currently available in China, will join the range, but there’s no official word from the automaker yet.

The facelifted XT5 will continue to be assembled at Cadillac’s Spring Hill, Tennessee plant. The sexy crossover should debut early in 2019, most likely at the Detroit Auto Show, before going on sale later in the year as a 2020 model.

It was nice knowing you, ATS and CTS. Say your goodbyes, both the Cadillac CTS and ATS will reportedly be discontinued, replaced for more modern examples in line with the updated nomenclature (i.e. CT6). Spy photos have already given us a glimpse at the CTS' successor, the CT5, and already we know that the CT4 will be slotted just underneath it. Now new reports suggest that GM has already started revamping its Michigan manufacturing facility in anticipation of the two new vehicles.
