The current coronavirus outbreak caused numerous delays and that’s particularly noticeable among GM brands. We’ve already seen a couple of Chevy and GMC models delayed and the latest reports suggest that we will also have to wait for a refreshed XT4 a little bit more than it was planned. Initially, this model supposed to come updated for the 2022 model year but the mid-cycle update has been moved for 2023. Therefore, it’s easy to conclude that the 2022 Cadillac XT4 will be a typical carryover model.
This means you may count on a crossover that may not be among the best models in the class but definitely has a couple of great things to offer. It is affordable and spacious, while the list of standard and available equipment is also quite impressive. Furthermore, the amount of cargo room behind the second row is pretty respectable.
Since there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, we presume that the 2022 Cadillac XT4 will hit the market sometime late this year.
2022 Cadillac XT4 Redesign
The mid-cycle update has been delayed and that means the 2022 Cadillac XT4 will come without more important changes. This model has been around since 2018 and it rides on GM’s familiar E2 platform. With an FWD layout, it definitely isn’t among the most fun models to drive in the class. However, the ride is smooth and comfortable, so those who are more about comfort than dynamics should consider this crossover.
Visually, you can notice Cadillac’s contemporary design language, which recognizable headlights and shield grille. We now know that changes will come with the 2023 model, which means that the 2022 Cadillac XT4 won’t feature aesthetical changes. Even minor updates like new color options don’t sound particularly likely.
The lack of changes is expected on the inside as well. The 2022 Cadillac XT4 will continue in the same way, offering a cabin that has both strong and weak points. When it comes to things we like about this crossover, one of the first things that come to mind is the amount of space. Both rows are generous and we also like the front seats, which are massive and supportive. Also, you may count on about 22.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, which is one of the best results in the class.
When it comes to things we don’t like, the first thing we should mention is the build quality. While it’s generally good, the fact is that most rivals are better in this aspect. Also, while the cargo space behind the second row is great, the overall volume is below-average for the class. You may count on about 49 cubic feet.
We presume that GM will leave novelties for the 2023 model. So, the list of standard and available equipment shouldn’t change much in the 2022 Cadillac XT4. After all, the current model already stands pretty well in this aspect. All versions come standard with goodies like dual-zone climate control, an 8-inch touch screen, seven speakers, satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, remote start etc. In higher trim levels, you can get goodies like a sunroof, a rear-seat entertainment system, wireless device charging, a 13-speaker Bose audio system, and navigation.
In terms of safety, the current model comes standard with goodies like a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, forward automatic emergency braking, and front pedestrian braking. The list of options includes a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, a rear camera mirror, rear cross-traffic alert, rear pedestrian detection, reverse automatic emergency braking, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system etc.
2022 Cadillac XT4 Engine
The 2022 Cadillac XT4 will continue with just a single engine option. Of course, we are talking about a familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four, which puts out around 237 horsepower and 258 horsepower. The engine by itself has enough power to move this crossover, though we have noticed that it can be loud when pushed hard. The engine comes in pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which also doesn’t seem too refined.
In terms of fuel economy, you may count on quite typical numbers for the class. In numbers, that would be around 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
2022 Cadillac XT4 Release Date and Price
Considering that the 2022 Cadillac XT4 will come without any particular changes, we presume it will hit the market sometime late in the year. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 36.500 dollars. Some of the key competitors are models like Mercedes-Benz GLA, BMW X1, Volvo XC40 etc.
