Recently, Bloomberg reported some early details regarding the Cadillac XT4 production. The XT4 will be a new, smaller SUV in the lineup. According to the report, Cadillac has already begun building a preliminary version of the model at its Fairfax assembly plant in Kansas City.
This new model will give luxury shoppers a new option, while at the same time making better use of the Fairfax plant. The Cadillac lineup currently only has two SUV options, the XT5 and Escalade. Last year, XT5 sales surged 73 percent.
“It’s a new architecture for us, and it is up to the task,” said Johan de Nysschen, President of Cadillac. “It’s the right size, dynamics and sophistication to attain what I believe is worthy of a Cadillac in this segment.”
The Fairfax plant currently producing the Chevrolet Malibu and the new Cadillac XT4 will share a platform with the Malibu to help defray some of the costs.
We have also learned that the all-new XT4 will likely make its debut in March at the New York Auto Show. In addition, sales of the new SUV are expected to start before the end of this year.
Here at Dan Young GM, we can’t wait to get the new XT4 on our showroom floor. What features do you hope to see?
