New Cadillac luxury flagship sedan will define the brand
Due to arrive in showrooms late next year, a new range-topping Cadillac sedan will herald a renaissance for General Motors' luxury division. While offering no specific details about the car, Mark Reuss, GM's Executive VP of Global Product Development, did confirm that the top-tier offering "will define the brand in terms of innovation and excellence."
Save for being positioned above the current XTS, little else is known about the vehicle that will go head-to-head with rivals like the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It's rumored to share a fair number of design cues with the extremely well-received Cadillac Elmiraj Concept Coupe pictured here, a one-off that made its debut at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Being developed under the code name XTS, Cadillac's new super sedan is expected to ride on a version of the same lightweight platform that underpinned the Elmiraj. However, it will most likely swap the 4.5-liter twin-turbo V8 fitted in the show car for a bespoke version of GM's high-tech 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6.
