Cadillac XT4 Will Be Built In Kansas

Cadillac's new crossover, the XT4, will be built at the General Motors assembly plant in Kansas City. AutoBlog says that's also where they're currently building the Chevrolet Malibu and that model has been seeing some pretty slow sales lately. The plant had to cut a third shift last year but the new model could bring that shift back if it proves to be popular enough.

I hope this means good things for build quality because with new models i'm always skeptical about that even with a brand like this that most of us are already well familiar with.

So.. looking into it more the XT5 is built in the same plant along with the Escalade and so far those models have proven to be winners with build quality, the XT5 especially. Its actually build quality that makes up for areas the XT5 falls short in!

Seems like preparation at the production plant is complete and Cadillac is ready to launch he new XT4, so the crossover could go on sale shortly after it debuts in March at 2018 New York auto show. Maybe the assembly line is already undergoing a few test production runs to make sure everything works and the resulting vehicles are up to their standards.

Often car makers have hundreds of test mules out running in public months before launch. So even though we saw spy shots of just one, there are many more. Rarely do we see more than a half dozen of them. Chevrolet for example had 500 test mules of its upcoming new Silverado!
