Cadillac is producing one of the most luxurious crossovers in the market. Also, Escalade is a huge one. With success, the appetite for expanding the lineup is raising. Spy shots of the small Caddy are already available, and this should be XT3. Nevertheless, we won’t see it so soon. The 2019 Cadillac XT3 must bring a new engine. We don’t doubt in design since this carmaker is well-known of its luxurious styling and elegant vehicles. From spy shots, we can assume dimensions of the compact crossover, but we can’t have a peek under the hood. Nevertheless, some leaked rumors will help us predict what to expect.
2019 Cadillac XT3 release date and price
We won’t see the new 2019 Cadillac XT3 during 2018. Why? The company prepared new Escalade. While attention is on that SUV, engineers will have enough time to finalize all work around XT3. Since small crossover is the new model, they will launch it with spectacle. Experts believe that XT3 will cost around $30,000. It is fair price having in mind that price of upcoming XT5 is just under $40,000.
2019 Cadillac XT3 specs
We can only guess what kind of drivetrain 2019 Cadillac XT3 will use. It is certain that base model is going to use a front-wheel drive system. Optional is AWD. With some other models already available, engineers could decide to launch new XT3 with the 2.0-l 4-cylinder engine. Nevertheless, Caddy loves to have powerful engines, so it is likely that turbocharger is going to support the drivetrain. With it, compact crossover will be capable to deliver 250 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque with automatic transmission.
2019 Cadillac XT3 styling
Due to heavy camouflage, we can’t see the entire look of 2019 Cadillac XT3. Nevertheless, it is predictable that compact SUV will be downgraded Escalade. However, it is not going to be so luxurious for base trims. We can’t expect high-class features and materials. From what we could see on spy shots, LED lights and D-pillars are very similar to these on Escalade. Two siblings are sharing honeycomb grille, but it is a trademark of all Caddies.
