2023 Cadillac XT4 Performance Highlights

Representing the pinnacle of accessible American luxury SUVs, Cadillac models have upheld a remarkably high standard since the introduction of the Escalade at the turn of the century, in the years since Cadillac’s SUV lineup has grown exponentially. One of our favourite vehicles in the Cadillac lineup is the smallest SUV from the brand, the subcompact XT4. Offering luxury touches, upscale styling, and of course, steady performance. Those looking to get into a Cadillac SUV, but don’t need the abundance of space offered by models like the Escalade or XT6, should first consider the 2023 Cadillac XT4. Naturally, your friends at McGee Motors Cadillac have your back with some of the best automotive knowledge and Cadillac vehicles Ontario has to offer. Follow along as we walk you through the performance highlights of the 2023 Cadillac XT4.
