The Driving Force Under the hood, the 2019 Cadillac XT4 got an eager 2.0-litre turbo-4 engine that mates to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Both works together to pull up a silky smooth ride with the abundance of horsepower counting 237 and a torque of 258 pound-fee to control the power in the face of a challenge. Depending upon your driving nerves you can choose to configure the new 2019 Cadillac XT4 to either front- or all-wheel drive through to add the all-wheel-drive capability you need to shell out a sum of $2,500 if you are taking home the Base.

The stiff pedal might first take some time to be friendly with you, but that is again a good thing which you can realize after a while behind the wheel. The dual-clutch system perfectly matches the all-wheel-drive system switching the power output from the rear wheels to the all-wheels for a sportier driving and the vice versa when you want to save some fuel.
