Cadillac XT4ís First Test Vehicles Spied



Generally, the first few production ready vehicles to roll off an assembly line are used as test mules and Cadillac seems to be doing the same with their newest crossover, the XT4. Bloomberg claims the automaker has already begun producing ďtest versions of the Cadillac XT4 at its assembly plant in Kansas CityĒ. Weíll have to take their word for now as their sources remain anonymous and Tom Wickham, a GM spokesman, has declined to comment.

Slated to be Cadillacís entry-level crossover, the XT4 will be using "similar underpinnings" as the Chevrolet Malibu. Perhaps this was done to reduce costs as the sedan is also built at the Fairfax assembly plan, or they may be hoping to makes better use of the plantís production capacity as Malibu sales have been in a slump. This resulted in GM cutting a third shift last year, which the XT4 could bring back.

Whatever the case may be, the XT4 will offer buyers a more compact option that slots right under the XT5, giving rivals like the BMW X3 and Audi Q3 a run for their money.

Full specs of the model remain hidden, but CarScoops is expecting to see a turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as an option. Thereís also a plug-in hybrid variant in the works.

I hope they improve on the electronic shifter in the Xt4 up from the Xt5 because its that along with a few other things that kept me away from the Xt5. Overall the xt5 wasn't that great of a product but at the same time it was a decent first try from Cadillac for a compact SUV
