A couple of days ago, GM Authority shared new spy images of the upcoming 2024 Cadillac XT3. This model represents a new crossover model that was undergoing prototype testing. We have more material of the Cadillac XT3 driving around in public to be properly introduced. The Cadillac XT3 is covered in thick camouflage in the latest shots, hiding its actual design. Even with this prototype model, we can still identify a great deal of things.
According to public feedback, the new Chevy crossover will sit between the Chevy Trailblazer and Chevy Equinox and will utilize the same styling as the brand-new Chevy Blazer crossover. It’s also the prerogative and primary goal to be a target on the Chinese market or another open market.
2024 Cadillac XT3 New Model
As far is concerning the new 2024 Cadillac XT3 redesign, we can find aspects of the most recent Cadillac design. Some of them are details such as vertical lighting up front and taillights that resemble badges. This Cadillac XT3 prototype is equipped with multi-spoke alloy wheels in the corners that have a wide diameter, thin spokes, a silver finish, and black detailing. From the other side, the front of the vehicle has a small notch that is most likely there to accommodate a front-facing camera. The Cadillac XT3 prototype shares characteristics with the previously published Chevy crossover, including a low-slung roof and a short rear overhang. Therefore, it is possible that Cadillac may share a platform with the Chevy crossover.
It should be noted that this prototype is not an electric vehicle (EV), as shown by the massive front air intake and rear exhaust ports. Moreover, neither the Cadillac XT4 refresh nor the Cadillac XT5 redesign is represented by this prototype. Instead, the Cadillac XT3 will compete with vehicles like the Lexus UX and Volvo XC40 in the luxury B-crossover sector below both of those cars.
Although large and comfy, the 2024 Cadillac XT3 interior isn’t as upscale as we would want for in this premium market. Lower on the doors and center console, cheaper, sharp-edged plastic is still present despite the dashboard and upper door panels being wrapped in stitched, faux-leather. The buttons and switches have the appearance and feel of being shared with more affordable products. Both the front and back seats have simple space for passengers. The XT3 has a roomy load area just like its passenger space.
Six of our carry-on bags fit behind the rear seat of the XT4, and when the seatbacks were folded flat, we were able to store material slightly more than smaller vehicles like countryman vehicles or mid-size van.
A 33.0-inch infotainment system with wireless Apple Car-Play and Android Auto is standard on all XT4 versions. The touchscreen has rounded edges that neatly match the interior styling. It looks sharp across two-thirds of the dashboard. The user can interact with the interface by using a console-mounted knob in addition to touching the screen. This makes it quite simple to operate.
The new 2024 Cadillac XT3 will tend to have standard features which include a seven-speaker audio system, and in-dash navigation. Other parts of this infotainment package include an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot and a 13-speaker AKG stereo.
2024 Cadillac XT3 Engine
The new Cadillac XT3 will have a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine under the hood that generates 235 hp. It works with either FWD or AWD and a 9-speed automatic transmission. Forget Cadillac’s claim that the XT4 is sporty. As opposed to an SUV, it is more of a boulevard cruiser. While poor asphalt portions transmit lots of vibrations and sharp impacts into the cabin, the ride is manageable as long as the road is generally smooth. This is because we have in use optional 20-inch wheels.
With one of the firmest brake pedals we’ve ever felt, the XT3 brakes provide its only definitive control. It is bringing our test car down from 70 mph in our emergency-stopping test in 172 feet. Safety measures are also involved in this type of vehicle. The new Caddy will take all the measures t ensure safe driving also combining a new improved infotainment system.
2024 Cadillac XT3 Release Date and Price
The Premium Luxury and Sport models are almost the same in price. But, since the latter is more enjoyable to drive and the former doesn’t live up to its moniker, we’d suggest the XT3 Sport. It boasts customized interior elements, blacked-out exterior trim, and distinctive wheel styles. The Sport model also boasts better-bolstered front seats and a suspension with adjustable dampers.
The base price for the regular 2024 Chevy XT3 will cost about $38,200. The Premium Luxury trim level and sporty version, as we said, will have similar price of $42,000. However, the Sporty trim level is anticipated to grow by over $43,500.
