2013 Cadillac XTS
2013 Cadillac XTS

New For 2013

The XTS is an all-new car for 2013. It sits atop Cadillac’s range of sharply designed sedans and is roughly the size of the old DTS it replaces. The XTS was the first car to receive the brand’s new CUE (Cadillac User Experience) infotainment software, which uses touch-capacitive sensors and two LCDs—one on the center stack and an optional one for the gauges.

Overview

The XTS replaces the DTS and STS sedans in the Cadillac lineup. With those aged models out of the picture, the XTS takes up residence as Cadillac’s range-topping sedan. The XTS rides on a stretched version of the Epsilon II platform that underpins the Chevrolet Malibu. Only one engine and transmission are offered: the same 3.6-liter V-6 found elsewhere in GM’s lineup mated to a six-speed automatic. The refined and powerful V-6 makes 304 hp in the XTS. As on the DTS that it replaces, front-wheel drive is standard, and as on the STS, all-wheel drive is an available option. Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system is the XTS’s trump card over its competition. This new system uses a set of LCDs and touch-capacitive sensors for inputs to the radio, navigation, and climate control systems. Inside, the XTS rivals more expensive models from the German and Japanese automakers with sumptuous leather, wood, and metal appointments. It is also quite roomy, offering interior space comparable to that of full-size luxury sedans but in a more efficient package. In addition, the XTS boasts 18.0 cubic feet of trunk space, exceeding the capacity of many of its full-size competitors. The XTS has a full complement of high-tech safety features, including lane-departure warning, forward-collision alert, and blind-spot monitoring.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; stability and traction control; Ultrasonic rear parking sensors; OnStar with automatic crash notification and emergency services; and a tire-pressure monitor are standard. Lane-departure warning, forward-collision alert, a Safety Alert Seat, blind-zone alert, automatic braking, and adaptive cruise control are optional.

2014 Cadillac XTS Turbo Front Three Quarter
Cadillac has released more information on the XTS sedan, which gains a number of upgrades for 2014, most notable of which is a new twin-turbocharged V-6.
2013 Cadillac XTS Front Left View
Those with good memories for bad advertising will remember the tagline, "The Caddy that zigs," which was used to introduce the Cadillac Catera. Even if that were a good tagline, it could not be applied to the new XTS. The XTS stands apart from Cadillac's other sedan offerings, all of which are nimble, rear-wheel-drive, Euro-style, driving machines. Instead of a Caddy that zigs, the XTS is the Caddy that's big.
2013 Chevrolet Spark Front Three Quarter
The Big Three American automakers have been on a roll lately, releasing a slew of great new products. However, Consumer Reports suggests the latest sedans from Dodge, Lincoln, Cadillac, and Chevrolet may not be so great after all. The shopping guide announced today it will not recommend the 2013 Dodge Dart, 2013 Lincoln MKS, 2013 Cadillac XTS, and 2013 Chevrolet Spark after testing the four cars.
2013 Cadillac Escalade Platinum Right Front 1
Newly appointed Cadillac global vice president Robert E. Ferguson has told The Detroit News that GM’s luxury brand is considering a new flagship sedan and two-seat sports car. Ferguson also suggested that the future Escalade may get an upgraded interior.
2013 Cadillac XTS Livery Sedan Limousine Funeral Coach
Cadillac previously announced that it was working on a livery version of its new 2013 XTS sedan. We now have the full details on the brand’s black cab, as well as a glimpse into the limousine and hearse variants that will follow in its footsteps.
