The new 2021 Cadillac XT4 is bringing more luxury than the previous time. A new subcompact crossover will represent a very strong option in the luxury SUV segment. It comes with a premium and beautiful design. Styling is perfect, and the interior is also more than good. Whatsoever, XT4 offers better comfort and more tech than most of its competitors.
Under the hood, we can expect the same engine. That means the four-cylinder turbocharged unit is available once again. Some reports were writing about a redesign, but that will not happen in 2021. Instead, Cadillac will provide mid-cycle refreshments.
2021 XT4 Exterior Gets Minor Improvements
As for the exterior design, this crossover will look truly distinctive and modern. The upcoming 2021 Cadillac XT4 will benefit from the latest visual updates, and it will look better as a result. Moreover, Cadillac will provide more standard equipment. For a start, new XT4 comes with a more prominent grille. Furthermore, its recognizable headlights and taillights are slightly enlarged.
Similar modifications can be seen in the current XT5 model, which is also a larger vehicle. We’d recommend a Sport model that will now add different suspension and larger 18-inch wheels. Moreover, this variant offers a standard AWD system and a new off-road driving mode. Lastly, Cadillac will offer new metallic exterior paints, two of them to be more precise.
The cabin will look incredible and luxurious, as always before. However, the 2021 Cadillac XT4 will add more features, and interior design is slightly different. Most importantly, the premium crossover will gain more premium amenities. The dashboard design is immaculate and straightforward. On the other hand, door panels are mostly unchanged, although we can expect new stitches.
An 8-inch infotainment display is offered as standard, and it works with the latest Cadillac’s CUE system. As before, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available too. We would also like to mention a 7-speaker sound system and Wi-Fi hotspot. Optionally, Cadillac is offering numerous packages, leather seats, larger display, and wireless smartphone charging pad.
Potent Four-Cylinder Engine is Available Once Again
As in the current version, new 2021 Cadillac XT4 is also offering the same four-cylinder engine. This unit is using a turbocharger, and it delivers 237 horsepower. It is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission, and it uses a standard front-wheel-drive. On the other hand, all-wheel-drive will be optional on the base trim level.
XT4 crossover sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds. That isn’t the best-in-class figures but still in line with most of the competitors. A four-cylinder powertrain is also using a fuel-saving cylinder-deactivation system, which provides better fuel economy. Speaking of which, XT4 is rated at 30 mpg on the highway.

The forthcoming 2021 Cadillac XT4 will get a small jump in price. The new model will become available for $37,000. An AWD system is optional, and it costs $2,500. However, some trim levels, such as Sport, are offering AWD configuration is standard. As for the Sport version, it will cost around $41,000.
