No one is going to talk about it if they don't know it exists. I've asked a few people what they pictured in their heads when I said I drive a Cadillac; they picture a giant, old mans barge. Cadillac needs to do more to get the word out. They need more Led Zep commercials to capture peoples attention on the tv. They need more youthful vehicles and commercials for the XT4 (which I think Cadillac, for once, is doing a great job marketing).

    Cadillac needs to spend $$$ putting their cars into video games (maybe they do?) and inserting advertising where the kids go, GM needs to build awareness in the future generations.
    Interesting enough.. they are present and the kids know who they are even if GenX and older act the way they do when U mention it. I'm telling U.. a lot of young cats respect Cadillac more than we GENXs do.. and not just for the Vs and 'Slade. There was an article published at a SITE I WILL NOT NAME.. that went over the appeal of Caddy to younger Americans.. and the fact that Cadillac is seen as a young up and comer's car in China as well

    Also keep in mind that many of the competition is powertrain limited, and offer the same 2.0T engines in more powerful variants.
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!

    Exactly my point. Power, in itself, has absolutely nothing to do with the desirability and price worthiness. Stop counting horses.

    Thank You Very Much. Outside your performance variants, customers really don't care about horsepower. All they need is for acceleration to be "okay" under light-moderate throttle...rarely do normal people go full throttle.

    I clear that the Corsair has a more cohesive design in respect to Nautilus, Aviator and Navigator where as XT4, XT5, XT6 and Escalade look to have more individuality in their respective designs.

    Easy choice.

    Corsair has more room, looks better inside and out IMHO, and has the gas door on the correct (Drivers side).

    Re: Corsair vs XT4: How they compare on paper

    I own an XT4 and I love everything about the exterior, the interior and the size. What I dislike intensely is the engine/transmission. I drive mostly in city driving and from 20mph to about 35 mph the car just can't decide what gear it should be in. The ride is terrible for a Cadillac that costs in excess of 50K. We have a 2010 CTS that is far superior as a ride. Highway driving, the XT4 is just fine and meets expectations, but in the city, yuck!

    The XT4 even disregarding power simply does not have a notable in any way powertrain.

    I would have assumed that a person would have noticed this apparent “terrible” ride and transmission issues on the test drive.

    Numerous outlets including Car and Driver which had its fair share of criticism of the XT4, complimented the XT4’s powertrain as smooth and refined.

    The XT4's new engine, for starters, makes a good first impression. Producing 237 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque from 1500 to 4000 rpm, this turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four is so smooth and quiet we found ourselves regularly checking the tachometer to see if it was running. And even at full throttle, it is almost disconcertingly quiet and vibration free.
    Cadillac's new nine-speed automatic transmission has a wide ratio spread that includes a supershort first gear, enabling satisfyingly quick launches, and an extratall top gear to help it achieve what Cadillac claims is the best efficiency-to-horsepower quotient in its class. You have to be really listening for the shifts to notice them, and even when aggressive driving prompts the transmission to raise its shift points and alter its shift logic, the gearchanges remain relaxed.
