    Cadillac XT4: Everything You Need to Know About Cadillacís Smallest Crossover Yet! [video]

    Cadillac jumps into the compact luxury crossover fray

    Look out Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti, Lexus, Volvo and Lincoln Ė Cadillac is gunning for your sales. The 2019 Cadillac XT4 wades into an increasingly crowded segment, largely dominated by the Europeans. In this video, TFLís Roman Mica heads out to Seattle, Washington to see what Cadillacís newest and least expensive crossover is all about. Check out the video above for the Top 10 things you need to know!

    Powertrain

    Perhaps one of the most important things to know about the XT4 is the all new engine. It is a 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to your choice of just the front, or all four wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission.

    Would you like to know more?

    The XT4 looks so much better in person and should sell well with competitive leases.

    The XT4 will obviously be an extremely popular offering within this segment.

    Watched this video last night - not a bad preview!

    I generally like what I see despite what some of the naysayers on this site are saying. Looks very competitive IMO.

    If it had a Lincoln badge it would be God's own vehicle!

    Does look to be competitive. I do have a feeling they didn't go far enough to stand above the other entrants in the segment. Same as they did with the new Silverado/Sierra.

    Apologies for the typo in the subject line. Should be "2019".

    Anywhosits, I'm really digging this car the more I see it. I'll have to check one out to see how big it really is.

    Noticed some orange peel on the black one at the beginning, but you see that on countless vehicles nowadays. It's a really great looking vehicle, very handsome, and definitely at the top of its class. I don't see how this can fail to sell, but the market can be very fickle, and what I like, may not be what most people want. Looking at various Lexus, it would appear that way over styled vehicles are sadly what the public wants. This looks very classy!

    If it had a Lincoln badge they would be burning said Lincoln in effigy. That said, I don't see where the criticism is coming from unless that criticism is aimed toward the fwd platform itself. But, that is hardly news at this stage and, given what it is, everything looks good to me.

    So how does it drive?

    Car mags used to have test drives before they're available for sale. Where are they now?

    I looked at 3 Chinese overviews (not tests), and the LAST thing all three mentioned was the engine. Imagine that in NA.

    Yes, can't wait to ready about the ride and the smoothness of the engine. I want to read "silky smooth" in regards to the 2.0T, I've never read that comment in regards to a GM 4 cylinder, unless you want to count "GM's 4 cylinder is NOT silky smooth".

    Nick is releasing info on the 17th maybe this site got special permission to release this video early since it does include GM employees.

    Drive reviews are embargoed. Overviews are not. There are a few vids out there talking about it. Still surprised that it's taking so long as there are Chinese reviews already up and you can technically buy one right now.

    Yeah, at 5000 rpm, since everyone drives in first gear all day.

    They've never figured out that Cadillacs have always let you know you've floored it.

    I would like to hear that this new? 2.0 Turbo 4 cylinder is worthy of the Cadillac name. If it is coarse, gravely and agricultural sounding (previous Cadillac 4cyls) it will go further in destroying the myth of "standard of the world". GM should just source their 4 cylinder engines from Honda or maybe Mercedes.
