The Cadillac XT4 went on sale in the fall of 2018 as a 2019 model year vehicle. 


The “XT4” name is the result of Cadillac’s new naming scheme, wherein the brand labels cars like sedans, coupes, and wagons with the CT moniker, followed by a number designating its “sequence” in the lineup. Similarly, Cadillac crossovers and SUVS will be named XT followed by a number identifying its sequence in the vehicle hierarchy.

General Motors filed a trademark application for the XT4 name with the Untied States Patent and Trademark Office on November 7th, 2014.


The XT4 rides on General Motors’ front-wheel-drive E2 platform. As such, it has a transverse engine configuration.


The XT4 offers the following powertrain options: 

  • Turbocharged 2.0L I4 engine (production code LSY), available in all markets where the XT4 is sold
  • Turbodiesel 2.0L I4 engine (production code LSQ), available exclusively in Europe
  • Mild hybrid, which pairs the turbo 2.0L I4 with an electric motor and 48-volt battery, available exclusively in China

All of these engine options mate to Cadillac’s 9-speed automatic transmission.


The Cadillac XT4 competes with other subcompact luxury crossovers in the C-segment crossover bracket: 

  • Audi Q3
  • BMW X1
  • Mercedes-Benz GLA Class
  • Volvo XC40
  • Lexus UX
  • Land Rover Range Rover Evoque
