SUVs are today’s automotive currency, and Cadillac is finally ready to pay out. Joining the full-size Escalade and compact XT5 (which replaced the SRX in 2016) is Caddy’s new entry-level crossover, the XT4. SUV momentum will continue through 2020, with at least one other model to help fill out Caddy’s portfolio and better compete with premium rivals.
Though late to the party, the XT4 is expected to rival or exceed the XT5 in sales volume, thanks to its attractive starting price and cutting-edge features. With the XT4, Cadillac has a proper entry point and poster car for its revitalized brand, and a direct competitor for vehicles like Mercedes-Benz’s GLA, BMW’s X1, Audi’s Q3, and Volvo’s XC40. In preparation for deliveries this Fall, here are 10 things to know about the 2019 Cadillac XT4.
