The Cadillac XT4 debuted in 2019 and gained standard advanced safety features like forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking in 2020. With this model still fresh, we expect no notable changes in the 2021 Cadillac XT4.
The Cadillac XT4 burst onto the scene with hard body line brought down from the larger Escalade, but this small crossover adds a sportier touch with its forward-leaning rear hatch, stunning headlights, short overhangs, and more. Inside, it boasts an upscale cabin with a range of dark and light color options, a clutter-free design, and multiple trim options. We expect this look to remain the same in the 2021 XT4.
Under its hood, the current XT4 comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This power heads to the front wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is an option. We expect the powertrain to remain the same in the 2021 XT4.
The IIHS has yet to complete a full crash test report on the 2020 XT4, but the NHTSA rates it five stars overall. The 2020 model year ushers in standard automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, forward-collision warning, and a safety alert seat – all options in the 2019 model – so it’s set up nicely to be an IIHS Top Safety Pick when testing is complete. We expect the 2021 XT4 to roll in with the same standard safety features and ratings.
