    XT4 Spy Shots Reveal Possible Diesel Engine Development

    Cadillac XT4 Spy Shots Reveal Possible Diesel Engine Development
    The diesel engine would likely only be available in Europe.

    A fresh set of Cadillac XT4 spy shots appears to reveal the engineers testing a diesel engine in the crossover at General Motors' Milford Proving Grounds. In addition, our spies report seeing a decal on the fuel door that they believe specified for the vehicle to use diesel fuel, but they weren't able to snap a picture of this sticker.

    Without seeing the message on the fuel door, the best evidence that this XT4 is something special comes from looking at the exhaust layout. This vehicle has dual, circular exhausts coming out of the driver side, whereas the current XT4 has a single, trapezoidal outlets on each side (see comparison below).

    Re: XT4 Spy Shots Reveal Possible Diesel Engine Development

    Evidently ???? given all the other moves...... Cadillac is going to perhaps handle Europe all differently than many - including here @ GMI pre suppose ?

    And perhaps ???..... with a very different timeline..... if so.... gotta' wonder if this is part of the 'hurry up revision' JdN (also) fundamentally disagreed with.

    Good for them if so or so one can hope ( with no disagreement with JdN ), because for damn sure that is still by far and away, the most important real Premium, and real Luxury Market on the planet.

    Also good news about a possible Diesel because yep, Diesel has already solved the historical, and any possible future EM problem..... and it's only going to get better from here on out with well.... everything....... which ain't the same Map for the Gassers.......

    I get the fuel door decal might indicate diesel fuel, but why does round exhaust pipes denote diesel? All I get out of these spy shots is the round exhaust pipes.

    I like the look of the round exhaust pipes over the rectangular ones they are using now.

    The main thing....... with the exhaust would be the single side / 'likely' 'single pipe' ( with split resonator ? final output ) nature of it.

    Someone somewhere else said that the fuel filler area ( on the Gassers ) has room for an AdBlue fill spout although I have not seen even a picture of it to know if correct.


    If someone could run their finger around inside the tailpipes and it comes out all clean with no soot etc - then it makes it more likely it's a Diesel.

    Can't imagine a diesel is coming to North America.. if it is a diesel.
