Cadillac’s entry-level crossover has been around for a while. It was introduced back in 2018 and while it may still feel fresh to some, the company believes this is a perfect time for updates. We are about to see a mid-cycle refresh and from what we can see, this will be a pretty comprehensive update. Novelties are expected in various aspects, both outside and inside the vehicle. The refreshed model should arrive sometime in the second half of the next year, as the 2024 Cadillac XT4.
As we’ve just mentioned, this should be a pretty comprehensive update. We expect to see a lot of exterior updates, considering that the test model wears pretty bulky camouflage. Furthermore, big changes are about to come on the inside as well, particularly in terms of the dashboard design. Naturally, we also count on new tech features, while the engine lineup is about to remain unchanged, most likely.
2024 Cadillac XT4 Design
The 2024 Cadillac XT4 is about to receive a mid-cycle refresh and from what we can see, the test mule still wears a lot of camouflage. The cover is pretty bulky and we can’t see details. However, we presume that the changes won’t be so radical. After all, we are talking about a mid-cycle refresh, so we presume the company will offer slighter revisions to the headlights, grille and bumper. A couple of changes on the rear end are expected too, particularly in the area around taillights. Naturally, we also expect to see updates in terms of new color options, new wheels etc.
On the other hand, the mechanical aspect of the vehicle is about to remain the same. Therefore, you may count on a familiar ride quality, which is more about comfort than athleticism. Moreover, most rivals feels more engaging to drive, especially the German competition, which comes with models like BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA etc.
This will be a comprehensive update, so we will see interior changes as well. From what we can see on spy shots, the new version will get a completely new dashboard design. Just like other new models in the brand’s lineup, this one will also get that curved panel, which incorporates a digital instrument cluster and infotainment screen into a single unity. Such a design approach can already be seen in models like the new Escalade, and we have no doubt that the updated 2024 Cadillac XT4’s interior will look way more upscale than before.
On the other hand, the overall cabin layout will remain the same. So, we are about to see the same amount of passenger space, which is pretty generous. Both rows of seats accommodate adults with ease, which isn’t always the case in this class. Furthermore, the cargo area also offers a pretty respectable 22.5 cubic feet behind the second row. On the other hand, the overall cargo volume goes around 48.9 cubic feet, which is below average in the segment of subcompact crossovers.
Also, some sources suggest that the 2024 Cadillac XT4 is about to bring some new technology features. Among them, it’s also possible to find Super Cruise, which is the company’s advanced semi-autonomous driving system.
2024 Cadillac XT4 Engine
Most likely, we won’t see any changes under the hood. The 2024 Cadillac XT4 will probably carry on with the same 2.0-liter turbo-four, which puts out around 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which is plenty enough to move this crossover with authority. The engine comes in pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to the front wheels and works pretty well. Of course, you can also opt for the all-wheel drive system, which improves grip and overall performance.
Some sources speculate about the electrifications, but the officials are still quiet on this matter.
Considering that we are about to see the same powertrain, we may expect to see the same mpg ratings. Therefore, you may count on about 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, which is about average for the segment. Of course, models with all-wheel drive are slightly thirstier and return around 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
2024 Cadillac XT4 Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2024 Cadillac XT4 sometime in the second half of the year. A slight price increase is probable, but we don’t expect the new model to cost significantly more that the current one, which starts at around 37.000 dollars.
