The Cadillac GT4 is a Coupe-Like XT4 for China

Cadillac follows the trend by launching the GT4, a coupe-like version of its XT4 compact SUV.

  • This model has been launched in China, but the automaker could bring it to North America later.
  • This SUV features a 33-inch curved display that includes the instrument cluster and the infotainment system.

  • Cadillac simultaneously launched the CT6 and new XT4 in China.

China is a major market for General Motors due to the popularity of its Buick and Cadillac brands, the latter of which has just launched three new models there simultaneously.

Alongside a revised XT4 and a new generation of the CT6 full-size sedan, Cadillac unveiled a new coupe-like SUV called GT4.

Based on the XT4, this model follows a popular trend that sees automakers lower the roofline of a regular crossover in order to give it a sportier and more stylish appearance.

Unlike some competitors, however, the automaker didn’t limit the changes to the roof and rear end of the GT4. Indeed, the front end of this new SUV is not identical to the revised 2024 XT4.

While the XT4 features a modernized version of the brand’s existing design language, the GT4 borrows elements from the Lyriq electric crossover, such as the separate vertical LED daytime running lights.

Inside, the resemblance between the GT4 and the XT4 is more evident since both SUVs share the same instrument panel.

Introduced in the 2024 XT4, this new interior is also heavily inspired from the Lyriq and much more technological than before.

This is why the GT4 benefits from a large 33-inch curved screen that includes both the instrument cluster and the brand’s new infotainment system.

Other features also include a 15-speaker AKG audio system, a colour head-up display, and a PM2.5 particulate filter for the dual-zone climate control system.

While the GT4’s styling is inspired by the Lyriq EV, its mechanical elements are closer to the XT4. Indeed, the new SUV can be powered by either a 1.5L or a 2.0L four-cylinder engine.

We know both of these engines are turbocharged and paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, but Cadillac has yet to announce their official power outputs.

As a comparison, the larger engine delivers 233 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque in the XT4.

While the new Cadillac GT4 is currently only available in China, it is possible the automaker will choose to offer it in other markets later on, including North America.
