Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - New 2020 Vehicle Preview -

Cadil­lac is flesh­ing out its util­ity-ve­hi­cle lineup that now in­cludes the five-pas­sen­ger XT5, the new-for-2020 XT6 and the gi­ant-size Es­calade. The XT4 was new for the 2019 model year and com­petes with the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class. A 237-horse­power tur­bocharged four-cylin­der is at­tached to a nine-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion and con­sti­tutes the XT4’s sole pow­er­train. The op­tional all-wheel-drive has a de­cou­pling fea­ture that al­lows the rear axle to free­wheel when road con­di­tions war­rant, thus im­prov­ing fuel ef­fi­ciency. All trim lev­els — Lux­ury, Pre­mium Lux­ury, and Sport — come with dual-zone cli­mate con­trol, power-op­er­ated front seats, eight-inch in­for­ma­tion screen (op­er­ated us­ing a con­troller on the cen­ter con­sole), ex­te­rior front and rear LED light­ing, and 18-inch al­loy wheels. At the top end, the Sport gets you a sport (nat­u­rally) sus­pen­sion plus a com­plete ar­ray of ac­tive-safety tech­nolo­gies, such as emer­gency brak­ing. A num­ber of added fea­tures (car­bon-fiber trim and a power lift­gate, for ex­am­ple) find their way into the Sport. A power sun­roof and Bose au­dio sys­tem with nav­i­ga­tion are op­tional.
