We are proud to be taking the lead in enhancing the Cadillac customer experience in the Middle East, specifically in Qatar. The new Cadillac facility is the perfect home for the highly-anticipated all-new Cadillac lineup, that is led by the first-ever XT4.”
Underscoring this milestone for the company, top executives from the American automotive giant were present at the showroom opening ceremony. Including Alan Batey, President of GM North America & Chevy Global Brand Chief, Chris Karaboyas, Senior Business Planning Manager, John Stapleton, CFO of GM North America, John Roth, President and Managing Director of GM Middle East & Africa, and Christian Soemmer, Managing Director of Cadillac Middle East.
As Cadillac’s largest crossover, the 2020 XT6 has been created to make the most of passengers’ time on the road with the all-new three-row model boasting a luxurious, adaptable and connected cabin, complemented by responsive handling and a comprehensive suite of safety features.
The Cadillac XT4 models are driven by an all-new Cadillac 2.0L Turbo engine, producing an SAE-certified output of 237 hp (177 kW). Coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission with next-generation Electronic Precision Shift, the new engine features new efficiency-enhancing technologies including Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation).
