The American premium brand is preparing to expand its model line.

At the General Motors plant in Kansas City, the assembly of pre-series prototypes of the crossover Cadillac XT4 was started, Bloomberg reports with reference to its own sources. As the agency notes, the new model is entrusted with a dual mission – to diversify the off-road line of the brand and load the work of GM plant employees. Today this enterprise also produces sedans Chevrolet Malibu. By the way, last year in Kansas City canceled the third shift: this decision was made because of the fall in sales of Chevy sedan.

The fact that in 2018 Cadillac will introduce a new crossover, it became known last year. It was assumed that the model will be called XT3, but later the representatives of the brand denied this information – the all-terrain vehicle will go on sale under the XT4 index and will be cheaper than the XT5 cross. It is expected that the premiere of the novelty will be held in the first half of this year.

Data on the engine scale of the Quartet is not yet available. Cadillac XT5 in the US is available with a petrol engine V6 3.6 with a power of 310 hp, which works in tandem with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Drive – front or full. The price of XT5 in the US market starts at $ 40,595 (excluding taxes and shipping).
