Does anyone know if Cadillac will come out with an update or hardward mod to add the 4G Internet service offered on the 2015's to the 2014 vehicles?

You mean the wifi hotspot thing? Probably not.

They are offering 4G retrofit to Canada for OnStar, because Canadian 2G carriers are closing up their 2G service. So likely that'll get offered in the US as well at some point, tho on what terms, who knows.

But the wifi hotspot thing would require its own wifi hardware as well in addition to just 4G send/receive, and likely would require replacing the head unit. . .so even if older US Cadillacs are offered the 4G retrofit eventually, that won't necessarily get you the wifi hotspot. Unless Cadillac decides to charge and bundles them together as an offer.

No. It requires different VCIM and HMI hardware and those are a coordinated change that also requires a different Radio and Cluster programming.
