Considering a new Cadillac SUV for your daily drives through The Villages? If you want the capability of an SUV, commute-friendly efficiency, and the amenities of a leading luxury brand like Cadillac, then read on—the 2023 XT4 compact SUV could be a great fit! The 2023 Cadillac XT4 gas mileage reaches 23 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway, so you’ll pay less every time you pull up to the pump.

What’s the highest possible 2023 Cadillac XT4 gas mileage, and is the 2023 Cadillac XT4 more fuel-efficient with FWD or AWD? Below, Sullivan Cadillac covers everything you need to know before you buy.

2023 Cadillac XT4 Gas Mileage by Configuration

As we mentioned up top, Lady Lake drivers will get the best 2023 Cadillac XT4 gas mileage with the front-wheel drive configuration. That’s because FWD systems send power only to the front axle, while Cadillac AWD systems send power to both axles. As you might expect, AWD systems create more traction between the wheels and the ground and use more power overall. That results in lower fuel economy compared to vehicles with FWD systems.

But what if you need AWD capability? Is the 2023 Cadillac XT4 fuel-efficient with AWD? While it’s true that you’ll sacrifice a few miles per gallon, AWD XT4 models post respectable numbers. Compare the 2023 Cadillac XT4 MPG for FWD and AWD configurations here:

  • 2023 Cadillac XT4 MPG with 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine and FWD – 23 city/30 highway/26 combined MPG
  • 2023 Cadillac XT4 MPG with 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine and AWD – 22 city/29 highway/24 combined

2023 Cadillac XT4 Engine Specs, Handling, & Capability

You know how many miles per gallon the 2023 Cadillac XT4 gets, but what else can its turbo-four engine do? This model’s only engine option can do just about anything, from efficient commuting to towing. Here’s a look at the XT4’s standout performance specs:

  • 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine
  • 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque
  • Adaptive suspension for a smooth and composed ride
  • Towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds

Does the Cadillac XT4 Require Premium Fuel?

Is the 2023 Cadillac XT4 fuel-efficient? Definitely! Efficiency is the name of the game for the XT4’s turbo-4 engine. A “turbo” engine uses a turbine to increase the ratio of air to fuel in the compression chamber. This allows it to generate greater power density, and boost horsepower without sacrificing fuel economy.

We’ve been asked by some drivers if the XT4 requires premium fuel. The answer is that while it’s not strictly necessary, premium gas with an octane rating of 91 or more is more difficult to ignite—which can help prevent pre-ignition and knocking in high-performance turbocharged engines.

What’s more? Greater power density also results in better fuel economy, so using premium fuel is also a key part of optimizing your 2023 Cadillac XT4 MPG.
