The Cadillac XTS is one of the most technologically advanced production cars in the brand’s history, delivering the space, elegance and dramatic presence that are brand signatures in a unique package tuned for a new generation of luxury customers.
Cadillac’s all-new, power-dense Twin-Turbo V-6 engine highlights new features for 2014, along with technologies including available Automatic Parking Assist and Intellibeam, as well as electric power steering on all front-wheel-drive models. Additional new and revised features include:
-An available rear-seat entertainment system with twin DVD screens that fold out of the backs of the front seats
-Available front passenger seat memory feature
-Revised rear-seat armrest with wood trim, radio controls and sunshade control (if equipped)
-Opaque sunroof sunshade.
XTS is offered in a well-equipped standard model and three optional collections: Luxury, Premium and Platinum. The XTS Platinum represents the highest level of technology and luxury, including a unique front appearance, wheels and interior colors, materials and trim.
Highlights for all collections include:
-Standard direct-injected 3.6L V-6 with lightweight features, including integrated cylinder heads/exhaust manifolds
-Available advanced all-wheel-drive system with electronically controlled limited-slip differential
-Magnetic Ride Control, rear air springs, HiPer Strut front suspension and Brembo front brakes – all standard
-Standard 19-inch wheels and available 20-inch wheels
-Capless fuel tank filler for easier, cleaner refueling
-Folding rear-seat head restraints that enhance rear visibility
-Safety Alert Seat that pulses to alert the driver
Intervening braking system that lessens or avoids potential collisions
Short- and long-range radar systems that support adaptive cruise control, front/rear automatic brakes and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
XTS is the only luxury sedan with standard Magnetic Ride Control – the world’s fastest-reacting suspension – while the advanced all-wheel-drive system uses Haldex technology with an electronic limited-slip differential to transfer power front-to-back, and side-to-side, along the rear axle. It is available on all three collections.
The XTS is also the most spacious Cadillac sedan, tailored to provide roominess in a more efficiently sized package. It offers more interior space than midsize luxury cars and is comparable to full-size sedans, particularly in the rear seat area, where it has 40 inches (1,016 mm) of rear legroom. That’s about four more inches than the BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and about two more inches than the Audi A6.
And when it comes to trunk space, the XTS is in a league of its own, with 18 cubic feet (509 L), exceeding both midsize and full-size competitors – more than Audi A6 and A8L, BMW 5 and 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz E- and S-Class. For XTS customers, the cargo advantage means room for five or more suitcases.
