Cloaked in Radiant Red Tintcoat, the Cadillac XT4 Sport AWD effortlessly pleases drivers, as it stands ready to tackle nearly any task. Whether it's grocery shopping or daily commuting, the XT4 meets a wide array of consumer needs and desires. Its comfort, design and commanding presence continue to stand out, upholding Cadillac's substantial reputation.

Ever since GM eliminated Pontiac and its popular performance style, Cadillac has had to step up to offer a diverse range of vehicles, prioritizing price, quality and consumer demand. The XT4 exemplifies this approach, meeting the mark in terms of size and price while also delivering the 'wow' factor that Cadillac buyers expect. As the smallest SUV in Cadillac's range, competing with brands like BMW, Mercedes, Genesis, and Volvo, the XT4 holds its own and makes a distinctive impression.

The XT4 is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that delivers 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, ensuring brisk acceleration and fuel efficiency that surpasses expectations. It is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission that is quiet and smooth operation, presenting a clear advantage over more affordable brands that use CVTs. The XT4 is offered in three models: Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport, each offering unique features to cater to individual preferences in style and functionality.

Cadillac has much to celebrate, having added significant value to today's vehicle market. Despite the ongoing challenges of satisfying General Motors' customers, Cadillac continues to deliver. In true Cadillac fashion, personalizing your vehicle with a vast array of options ensures that will be driving the only one in town. This model certainly merits a test drive, and kudos to Cadillac for what promises to be a durable addition to their lineup.
