    Cadillac XT4 Photo with no camo

    Cadillac is preparing to unveil one the most important models in its comeback tour.

    The XT4 compact sport utility vehicle making its world debut this week at the New York International Auto Show may not have the flair of the tail-finned Eldorados of the fifties and sixties, or the US$100,000 price tag of today's Escalade. But the vehicle towers in importance as Cadillac's new entry point for young buyers.

    "It will be leading the charge for us as an interceptor of young affluent buyers – very valuable long-term customers," Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen said.

    The XT4 has a lot resting on its shoulders as General Motors Co. tries to bring Cadillac back to the upper echelon of luxury.

    "Cadillac has improved the product, but they have not been able to move the needle on the brand," said Alexander Edwards, president of Strategic Vision Inc., a market research firm. "It hasn't caught on with younger buyers."

    It's a front drive crossover, and there is no effort to disguise that. It does look significantly better than the Lexus. Not as nice as the new XC60 IMO, but this appears to be an entry level/sport model based on the info about the grill that was released yesterday.

    Not my kind of vehicle, but it's not ugly and I'm sure the interior will be amazing. They are going to sell boat loads of these things.

    Not sure how I feel about the "vent" at the bottom on the light pillars on the headlights.

    Pretty. Even the orange looks ok, never thought I'd say that about that color on a Caddy (flashback to the all new 2003 CTS that was offered in orange for one year only)

    Not bad looking IMO. I dislike orange paint. It would look really nice in black or even gunmetal.

    Two cars of the same configuration from the same brand, they're going to look pretty similar. I don't think anyone would confuse them more easily than any other similarly analogous cars from another brand.

    Then why have we been so excited in anticipation to see it?

    Looks good, but I was hoping for more. I feel like it is missing something. Have to see more pictures. Hopefully the interior wows.

    The back should look more distinctive with the large taillights.

    A question for the philosophers.

    It goes beyond that. It's the first product more or less fully baked under the new leadership. Checking it out IRL for quality will be important.

    It's a $35,000 crossover, it won't.
