The new 2022 Cadillac XT4 enters its fourth model year without significant changes. Like before, the upcoming model will keep its premium look, but it will feature a more comfortable cabin and better technology for an entry-level model. This small crossover is one of the rarest that comes with a Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system and Advanced driver assistance features.
The latest Cadillac XT4 will be powered by the carryover 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that generates 237 horses and 258 lb-ft of torque. Like the previous version, the new one features the same nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. However, the all-wheel-drive remains optional on all trim levels.
2022 Cadillac XT4 Exterior Upgrades
The most small-ish and compact premium-crossover in Cadillac’s lineup is definitively the new XT4 model. This SUV looks attractive, and it’s much easier to drive it than its bigger sibling XT5 model. Dimensionally, the XT4 is smaller than the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, but it’s slightly larger than the subcompact Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.
Moreover, the ride quality of the new 2022 Cadillac XT4 has been enchanted thanks to the excellent suspension. In addition, choosing the Sport trim level, buyers will get Active Sport Suspension that continuously monitors road conditions. As for the design, the XT4 still looks stylish and district, featuring the same massive grille and signature-style headlight. The entry-level version uses 18-inch alloy wheels, while upper trims offer more massive 20-inch alloy wheels.
More Premium Interior
Despite exterior changes, the forthcoming 2022 Cadillac XT4 will be more premium inside than ever. Generally, this model is Cadillac’s cheapest crossover, so don’t expect features that has bigger XT5. The latest model comes with a roomy cabin that can fit five passengers in two rows. Interestingly, it also offers up to 48.9 cubic feet of cargo space, which is about the same as many hatchbacks.
This small crossover comes with an 8-inch high-definition touchscreen, four USB ports, front power seats, remote start, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Premium Luxury trim adds leather and wood-trimmed interior, hands-free power liftgate, and much more quality touches. Moreover, thanks to the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system, the XT4 can travel a predetermined route without driver inputs for steering, braking, or acceleration. On top of that, the base XT4 also includes forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and rear parking sensors.
