    Scoop: Cadillac XT4 Prototype Seen Hiding An Extra Fuel Cap

    Scoop: Cadillac XT4 Prototype Seen Hiding An Extra Fuel Cap

    This marks our second sighting of Cadillac's upcoming compact crossover, ever since the automaker confirmed that the new model would be called XT4 instead of XT3.

    Aside from covering up Cadillac's pentagonal mesh grille, a set of LED headlights and C-Pillar-mounted taillights, the camouflage on this particular tester is also masking what we're told is an extra "fuel" cap on the left front fender, something we find on plug-in hybrids.
    According to company president Johan de Nysschen, the XT4 will feature "an entirely new series of efficient and powerful engines," and following its launch, around the middle of next year, a new Cadillac will be "brought to market every six months," totaling five car-lines in the space of two years.

    That means boosted V8 to me; to them, I think not.

    They'll make a plug-in version, how is this news?

    5 lines in two years from mid 2018.

    2018.5: XT4
    2019: CT3/5
    2019.5: XT6
    2020: CT3/5
    2020.5: XT2? Escalade?

    I wait with baited breath... I would be pushing for a new model before a refresh, but that's just me.

    Shouldn't we have an Escalade refresh before then, anyway?

    Boring news.

    That was actually my first thought, but then, for this model?

    I think, no.

    I'm pretty sure the second of the 5 New cars will be the XT6, then the ATS/CTS replacement will be next up. If they're smart, they'll save the 'XT7' moniker for something just below the Escalade. Not sure what the fifth new car line will be? New Escalade perhaps, or a full electric car leveraged off of the Bolt's hardware? It would be easy to make a CT7 out of the CT6 with a state of the art V8, totally revised interior and ESCALA styling front and rear.

    They are trying to fake us out with that dummy port on the front fender.

    So what is the engine line they are talking about? The diesels Cadillac is supposed to be working on?

    I've tried to be optimistic, but projected model releases and the mythical new V8 just don't seem that congruous.

    The mythical Caddy C8, sure; it needs a small DOHC V8 and hybrid AWD, but to introduce that engine in a CUV is sacrilege, after all this time, and all those concept car platforms, to me.

    Maybe that new fuel door is actually where you pour in the diesel exhaust additive.

    GM walked away from VM Motori's 3.0 V6 - GM Powertrain Torino wasn't included in the Opel-PSA sale so they could source 1.6/2.0 I4s - or has Cadillac created a complete diesel development division in secret?
