2018 Cadillac XT3 Render: Brand New Entry Crossover

As you probably know, Cadillac is going to suffer some drastic changes in the near future. In fact, radical remodeling of the brand’s image and implementing of the new business philosophy has already begun. We know for sure that the future will bring some all-new Cadillac models. What we don’t know is how the new models will look like. TopSpeed surprised us by new renderings the upcoming Cadillac models. David Kiss, a very talented artist, created the 2018 Cadillac XT3 rendering that reveals how the new premium crossover might look like.

The 2018 Cadillac XT3 will be a very attractive counterpart of the well-established luxury crossovers, like the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class and the Audi Q3. Since the 2018 XT3 will be the entry model of the Cadillac’s crossover/SUV range, it will be very interesting to see what the automaker has in mind. It’s clear that they don’t have to prove anything, but the new model must have large production volume.

2018 Cadillac XT3 Render: Recognizable Design

The appearance of the brand new Cadillac’s crossover will be heavily influenced by the current design language. This means that it will keep its assertive and elegant style, but they might introduce some new details, too.

The TopSpeed render shows the 2018 Cadillac XT3 that looks very attractive. The front fascia has the brand’s distinctive grille and vertically-oriented LED headlights.

The body of the new crossover looks very powerful although it’s the smallest Cadillac crossover. They managed to do this by using SRX body as the base for the rendering. If the automaker keeps this recognizable style – and there’s no reason for diverting from it – the new XT3 will probably inherit a lot of other models’ design elements. Crafted as a useful urban crossover, the XT3 won’t have an incredibly high ground clearance, but its style will be perfect.

Powertrain Expectations

According to the TopSpeed article, the 2018 Cadillac XT3 is expected to be the only RWD model within its market niche. Of course, they will probably offer an AWD version. The expectations are that the base engine options will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that could deliver approximately 220 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Higher trims will come with more horsepower beneath the hood.

How Much 2018 Cadillac XT3 Will Cost?

Although it’s still early for price estimates, the 2018 Cadillac XT3 will probably start below the $30,000 point. The automaker may sacrifice some of the luxury and high-end features that could be expected of a brand new Cadillac, but the base version will probably be the most affordable entry premium crossover.
