2014 Cadillac XTS What's new for 2014? 
2014 Cadillac XTS

The big news for the 2014 XTS is more power thanks to an optional twin-turbocharged V6 engine. The invigorated powerplant makes 410 horsepower and comes standard with all-wheel drive (AWD). Also of note are automatic parking assist, an available rear-seat entertainment system, and electric power steering in front-wheel-drive models.

2013 Cadillac XTS What's new for 2013? 
2013 Cadillac XTS

The Cadillac XTS is a brand-new nameplate for the 2013 model year, and brings the Cadillac brand one step closer to once again offering consumers a full range of vehicles.

About Cadillac XTS

Once proclaiming to be "The Standard of the World," Cadillac has more recently been fighting to reach a new – younger – generation of buyers. The addition of the excellent ATS compact sedan has been a big step forward, and the XTS aims to do the same on the other end of Cadillac's lineup. As the luxury brand's newest flagship sedan, the 2014 Cadillac XTS possesses a good balance of exterior style, interior refinement and modern (though potentially confusing) technology. Smaller than the geriatric DTS it replaced, the chiseled XTS bridges the gap between midsize and full-size luxury sedans. Starting around $45,000, it faces a broad set of rivals, from the Lexus GS and Mercedes-Benz E-Class to the more performance-oriented BMW 5 Series and Audi A6.

"Traded in our 2003 Deville for the XTS. We've had it for a week so far and still figuring out everything the CUE system does for creature comfort. When focusing on just driving, the ride is Caddie comfortable with the right balance of sporty when it comes to handling. The interior is well done and the ergonomics make sense. We waited for this car to come out and had test driven the Audi, BMW, and Lexus and were prepared to pay the price for those cars. After driving this and being familiar with Cadillac service and support, we knew the XTS was going home with us."

"Car has style outside and the inside cabin is luxury beyond the competition...you have to spend thirty grand more and I still feel as if this car can compete and exceed Lexus-Benx-Bmw-etc.....for those Benz and BMW drivers the ride on those cars are harsh and they don't handle the corners any better than the XTS. I see GM is raising the price already and assume that this car will top out at 72k, I took a luxury model off the showroom floor four weeks after it came out and although I drive very little (retired) the car is smoother than limos. For those that can't get that elusive 28 MPH it's your lead foot. Mine is the same and I often find myself cruising at 85 mph.....had car on track and the car will do 160 which is where the speedometer ends, it gets tighter as you move along at those speeds and was the greatest for ride quality at normal speeds. CUE was hard to learn but once mastered you'll love it. Set your car up in park and don't try changing your settings on the road. I have never had a car that lets you turn off the reverse mirrors, or turn off the passenger reverse mirror etc to give you an idea at how many custom settings there are, from 3D Nav screen, custom interior lighting, and CUE works like an ipad. I will be getting another in two or three years which is my avg on keeping cars."

"I have owned many cars over the years and I thought trading the CTS V for the ZTS was going to be a letdown. Excluding horsepower, the XTS has risen above the V's aewsomeness! It is a gorgeous car - inside and out - and is impressive from every angle. It has a ride that always feels stable and can take a corner better than most smaller cars. It rides like it ison glass and the CUE system is out of this world! I do love this car!"
