The 2019 Cadillac XT4 brings high-end luxury to drivers who want to enjoy the finer things in life at an affordable price. The upcoming model innovates on several levels, including performance and efficiency. The reborn Tripower engine offers drivers three fuel-saving technologies that drivers will appreciate. Interestingly enough, the first General Motors Tripower engine arrived in 1957, and then was discontinued in 1966. Back then, however, the focus was primarily on performance, not efficiency.
Positioned as a crossover for younger drivers, the 2019 Cadillac XT4 model’s Tripower will introduce pleasing efficiency. Unlike similar engines of the past, the new Tripower engine focuses on fuel conservation rather than performance.
The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine features three operating modes that cater to different preferences. Four-cylinder performance mode optimizes power, while the four-cylinder eco mode enhances efficiency. Two-cylinder eco mode provides the best fuel conservation, however, to suit frugal drivers.
The new Tripower engine includes cylinder deactivation, intake valve lift control, and active thermal management. A high-pressure direct injection system and integrated exhaust manifold help improve the turbo response time. An active oil management system and start-stop system aim to further reduce fuel consumption.
