Cadillac’s smallest crossover has been around for about three years and the initial plan was to make a significant update for the 2022 Cadillac XT4. However, that won’t happen. The latest reports suggest that this facelift was moved for 2023, which clearly indicates that the next year’s model is about to carry on in the same way. You may count on the same overall design, though there is always a chance to see minor updates in terms of new standard features, color options etc.
This model will continue to deliver the same things it delivered in the past three years. This is one of the biggest models in the segment, which offers plenty of passenger space, as well as a solid amount of cargo space. Also, the seats are massive and supportive, while the list of standard and available equipment is pretty long.
Considering that there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2022 Cadillac XT4 will hit the market sometime late in the year.
2022 Cadillac XT4 Redesign
Considering that the facelift hals been delayed for the 2023 model, the 2022 Cadillac XT4 will carry on without significant updates. You may count on the same overall design, which is based on a good old E2 platform. Although classified as a subcompact crossover, it is actually bigger than many compact luxury SUVs. With more than 109 inches in wheelbase, it’s no wonder there is plenty of passenger room, but we will get on that in the interior section.
The next year won’t bring changes, which means you may count on the same styling. The mechanical aspect of the crossover is also about to remain the same. In terms of the ride quality, this model tends to be rather comfortable, so you definitely won’t find too much fun driving it. Models like XC40 and Audi Q3 handle way better.
On the inside, the most impressive thing is the amount of passenger room. Thanks to a very long wheelbase, this crossover accommodates adults in both rows of seats with ease. Also, we really like the front seats, which are massive and supportive. The driving position is pretty good, as well as the visibility in all directions.
When it comes to the cargo area, you may count on about 22.5 cubic feet, which is pretty impressive for the class. On the other side, the total volume could be better. You get around 49 cubes, while there are several rivals that offer more than 50 cubic feet of the total volume.
Without any doubt, interior space is one of the strongest points of this SUV. However, we can’t say the same for the interior quality. In this aspect, the 2022 Cadillac XT4 will remain behind the rivals. German competitors, as well as others, usually offer nicer materials, better build quality and more attractive overall aesthetics.
Considering that the facelift has been delayed, we are pretty sure that the next year won’t bring any important update in terms of standard equipment. The current model already comes standard with goodies like dual-zone climate control, an 8-inch touch screen, a seven-speaker stereo, satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Additionally, you can get goodies like a sunroof, a rear-seat entertainment system, wireless device charging, a 13-speaker Bose audio system, and navigation.
When it comes to safety, the current model comes standard with things like a safety alert seat, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, forward automatic emergency braking, and front pedestrian braking. Also, you can pay extra for goodies like 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
Things under the hood definitely won’t change. The 2022 Cadillac XT4 is about to carry on in the same way, featuring a familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four, which puts out around 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough for a convenient ride and decent driving dynamics. The engine comes in pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which can hesitate with shifts sometimes, but the overall performance is more than satisfying.
In terms of fuel economy, you may count on average ratings 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 there are no bigger changes to come, the 2022 Cadillac XT4 will probably hit the market sometime late in the year. The starting price should go around 35.000 dollars. Some of the potential rivals are models like BMW X1, Volvo XC40, Audi Q3 etc.
