GM prepares a completely new model for its luxury brand, which will come as 2018 Cadillac XT3. This won’t be just some new model from the brand, but also the first model of this kind that Cadillac ever made. It will be a small luxury crossover, which is designed to compete with models such as BMW X1, Mercedes GLA etc. Main rivals will be German models, but this segment is nowadays full of various models. It will be a new entry-level model of the brand and, despite its small size, it will come with plenty of premium features in all aspects. Besides the attractive look, it will come with great performances and fully-loaded with newest technologies. We expect its arrival soon.
2018 Cadillac XT3 redesign and features
As we already mentioned, 2018 Cadillac XT3 will come as an all-new model. We already know many details about this new crossover. This will be a small luxury crossover, and it is designed to compete primarily with German competitors like Mercedes GLA and BMW X1. This model comes with plenty of new design solutions. It will ride on a completely new platform which, unlike other models in the segment, features an RWD layout. This is very important and it could be a big advantage, especially for those drivers that want more exciting drive. In terms styling, we don’t expect surprises. The 2018 Cadillac XT3 will completely follow brand’s design language, and it will borrow many design solutions from bigger models of the brand. Same thing should happen inside, where we expect to see the not only familiar elegant design, but also plenty of technologies and other premium features.
2018 Cadillac XT3 engines
When it comes to powertrain, we know for one unit that will come for sure. It is a 2.0-liter turbo inline-four engine, which has a max output of 220 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. This engine could also come in some variant with higher output, as optional. When it comes to transmission, the base model will feature six-speed automatic. New 10-speed automatic will be an option for now. However, we are pretty sure that it will become standard in upcoming years.
2018 Cadillac XT3 release date and price
The 2018 Cadillac XT3 will probably arrive in early 2018. We believe that base model will go around 30.000 dollars.
