Cadillac unveiled its new 2019 XT4 crossover ahead of the New York International Auto Show that's currently underway. The luxury automaker needs this new crossover, which lacks a diversified offering of such models. This will be Cadillac's third crossover/SUV offering, slotting in below the XT5.

The exterior of the XT4 is distinctly Cadillac with its V-Series-inspired grille, stylized headlights, and L-shaped taillights. LED headlights and taillights are standard features. Three trims are available: Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport. Each has unique styling features. The Sport has alloy wheel choices, while Luxury and Premium Luxury trims offer grilles with bright metallic accents, satin aluminum window moldings, and satin chrome-accented door handles.

Inside, the XT4 is all about luxury and technology. Four USB ports and three 12-volt accessory power outlets are all standard features. Other features include an 8-inch infotainment display, near-field communication for smartphone pairing, and 15-watt wireless charging. With the seats folded down, 48.9 cubic feet of cargo space is available.

Every XT4 has a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine making 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission sends power to the front wheels. Cadillac estimates the XT4 will return 30 miles per gallon in highway driving. Cylinder deactivation is standard, while a twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system is an available option. The XT4 is the first Cadillac to offer electro-hydraulic brake assist, saving space under the hood and increasing fuel economy.

The 2019 Cadillac XT4 goes on sale this fall with a starting price of $35,790 (including destination charge).
