The 2024 Cadillac XT4, the brand’s compact SUV, sports an updated look and state-of-the-art technology, warranting an increase in the starting price to $39,090 (inclusive of a $1,195 destination charge). This marks a $1,600 increment from the 2023 model.
Arriving in dealerships now, the redesigned XT4 is equipped with an eye-catching 33-inch curved display, an upgrade from the previous 8.0-inch touchscreen. The same screen, with its high-quality 9K resolution, is also found in the electric Lyriq crossover SUV. In addition to a digital instrument cluster, this new display features wireless compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other standard inclusions are a 5G wifi hotspot, Amazon Alexa compatibility, and integrated Google services like Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.
While the introduction of the grand display is notable, the XT4’s buttons and knobs for climate and infotainment controls remain. An optional 13-speaker AKG audio system is available for music enthusiasts at $875.
Every 2024 Cadillac XT4 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine, delivering 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a standard 9-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive option, priced at $2,500 ($100 more than the 2023 model), can be engaged by the driver and disconnected to maximize fuel efficiency in non-slippery conditions.
For an additional $300, buyers can opt for a trailering package which includes a robust cooling system, enabling the XT4 to tow up to 3,500 pounds.
The XT4 is equipped with an assortment of active safety features as standard, including camera-based automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alerts, and active lane control. Despite these, Cadillac’s Super Cruise hands-free driver-assist system is conspicuously missing from the XT4 lineup. A radar-based automatic emergency braking system paired with adaptive cruise control and a surround-view camera system is available for an extra $1,825.
