2019 Cadillac XT4 Crossover Joins Caddy’s Stable of Stylish New Utilities with a Fall 2018 Release Date

2019 Cadillac XT4

Sitting on its own platform with a new 2.0L turbo engine, Cadillac’s new 2019 XT4 compact crossover arrives at dealerships this Fall 2018.

Coming off the heels of the 2017 XT5 crossover, Caddy adds a new compact offering to the mix – the first-ever 2019 XT4.

Reality is, the XT4 enters a highly competitive market flooded with all varieties of small sport utilities. But that isn’t stopping automakers, and this luxury option seems to check the important boxes including rear cargo space, a robust engine, and of course, new cabin tech.

Cadillac is going on a product blitz, revealing a new product every 6 months until 2021, offering luxury buyers and brand loyalists a diverse lineup of vehicles, including this also revealed, beastly CT6 V-Sport full-size sedan

The new XT4 gets an all-new Cadillac 2.0L Turbo engine that features new efficiency-enhancing technologies including Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation), coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission with next-generation Electronic Precision Shift, sitting on an exclusive compact SUV architecture.

Rated at an impressive 237-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, we’re looking forward to hitting the road in this new Cadillac CUV when it’s officially released later this year Fall 2018.

New XT4 trims include Luxury, Premium Luxury, and topping out at Sport – all levels riding on 18-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels.

And for cargo space, this small sport utility expects to lead the compact crossover segment in rear-seat roominess offering decent legroom space and abundant cargo when rear seats are folded down. Learn more:

Foose Designed Cadillac

Foose Cadillac

Chip Foose is a man of many great talents and his creations have made him a legend in the automotive world. However, even the greats sometimes take inspiration from those around or before them. Foose has been commissioned by car dealer Wes Rydell and his wife to create a completely bespoke car for them. The inspiration is drawn from a sketch by Art Ross, GM designer, which dates back to 1935. That’s right, the sketch brings back designs from a time when cars were long, swooping over fenders, and exuded nothing but class from every vantage point.

The sketch is of a Cadillac coupe was the starting point of the build, but like everything Foose, the designer takes his own spin on the classic design. The real life version of the build will be based off of a 1939 Cadillac Series 60 Sedan. Foose will take the original car as a starting point and utilize his, and his team’s talents, to design the final car which is currently dubbed project “Madam X”.


2016 Cadillac CTS-V in the Flesh

2016-cadillac-cts-v-naias-2015-6
This is it, the all-new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V in the flesh. The CTS-V has taken a healthy chunk of sales away from its rivals, namely the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. This year, the new CTS-V is raising the ante on its competition, blowing them away with an incredible 640hp. Who says the horsepower wars are dead?

Unveiled last month shortly before Christmas, Cadillac decided to bring a nuclear missile to a gunfight in the performance luxury sedan segment. Shoehorning the Corvette Z06’s 6.2L Supercharged V8, the motor pumps 640hp and 630 lb-ft of torque to the paddle shifting 8 speed automatic transmission, making the CTS-V the only car in the 600hp club in its class. Driving the rear wheels, this drivetrain configuration runs 0-60mph in only 3.7 seconds.

The chassis has received a host of upgrades to ensure that handling dynamics match the impressive drivetrain. Cadillac engineers managed to squeeze an additional 25% of stiffness out of the chassis by adding bracing everywhere they can, improving both handling as well as ride. The 3rd generation Magnetic Ride Control suspension setup delivers 40% faster dampening responses. Topping it all off, Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires come standard, ensuring very high levels of grip while shod in a street tire. On the inside, optional RECARO seats keeps you planted in high G maneuvers at the track, and a full Performance Data Recorder records telemetry while you try your best Tony Stewart impersonation at the track.

The 2016 CTS-V is set to arrive in showrooms this summer. Check out our gallery for some up close action of the new beast.

New York: 2014 CTS-V Revealed

The Cadillac CTS is one of the most two-faced cars in production today. On one hand you’ve got a soft but sturdy sedan, built to ferry geriatrics between Country Kitchen Buffet and an assisted living center. It’s got lines that comfort people who remember the first Cadillac, an interior that doesn’t offend and a soft ride, packed with understeer to ensure a safe journey. But then, simply by slapping a “V” badge on the fenders, you get a loud, aggressive monster. You get over 500 horsepower that wants to send the car sideways at every corner, and magnetic suspension to make sure it stays flat at the same time. The same lines that appeal to a grandpa, appeal to grandson. It manages to please two of the most widely disparate demographics out there and it should be lauded.

Apparently Cadillac didn’t feel the same way, because the new CTS and CTS-V were officially revealed today at the New York International Auto Show and while, at first glance, the style doesn’t look significantly different, it’s definitely a departure from the outgoing model. They show an aggressive and busy new front end, offset by a classic country club rear. If I saw one in my rearview mirror I’d want to get the hell out of the way, but then as it passed I’d think that the driver had fallen asleep holding down the gas pedal. Strangely, the odds of a new CTS passing you are quite high, even in base trim. While I invite you to judge the new design for yourself, first I want to tell you all about the new engine option.
