2014 Cadillac XTS Platinum Collection Rear View In Motion
2014 Cadillac XTS

New For 2014

A performance model called the XTS Vsport joins the lineup for 2014. It features a new twin-turbo V-6 that produces 410 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. That extra muscle turns an already competent performer into something of a Q-ship.

Vehicle Summary

The 2014 Cadillac XTS is a relatively new model that nevertheless feels like a blast from the past. It is a comfort-oriented full-size Cadillac in the tradition of the front-wheel-drive Devilles and Sevilles that crowded bingo-hall parking lots in the 1980s and 1990s. The XTS is, make no mistake, a much better car than those old boats -- it handles well, has plenty of power, and has one of Cadillac's best interiors to date. A new Vsport variant spices things up with a 410-hp, twin-turbo V-6 powering all four wheels. Still, those who prioritize performance over roominess and comfort should sooner consider the similarly priced, rear-wheel-drive CTS.


It's easy to forget how much the Cadillac brand has changed in the last decade. The Escalade, the CTS, the SRX, and the ATS are all relative newcomers. Only one model resembles the Cadillac of old, the 2014 Cadillac XTS. The moniker is, of course, different -- it follows the same foolish alphanumeric naming conventions as the rest of the lineup. But anyone who's owned a Seville or a Deville will immediately recognize the concept. The XTS is a front-wheel-drive sedan with lots of power, lots of features, and loads of interior space.

The 2014 Cadillac XTS does benefit from the rest of the brand's progress. The interior, for instance, is executed to a standard unimaginable in the old days. The top-of-the-line Platinum edition is truly lovely, featuring perforated leather and rich-looking wood trim. Cadillac's new and often confusing infotainment system, Cue, is standard -- something of a head-scratcher considering that traditional Cadillac buyers skew rather old.

The 2014 Cadillac XTS also drives much better than the luxury boats of old. Magnetorheological dampers and Brembo front brakes are standard. A new, go-fast version called the Vsport (not to be confused with Cadillac's V-series) features a muscular twin-turbo V-6 and all-wheel-drive.

Despite all of its good qualities, the XTS reminds us why Cadillac faltered in the 1980s and '90s. It relies heavily on the General Motors corporate parts bin and doesn't necessarily feel $20,000 better than the mechanically similar Buick LaCrosse and Chevrolet Impala. Its chunky, cab-forward styling and nose-heavy handling don't compare favorably with foreign competitors or, for that matter, with the Chrysler 300. It also has very quickly become a limousine-service mainstay thanks to its large back seat and gargantuan trunk. That no-doubt pads GM's bottom line in the short term but may not serve Cadillac's image in the long term.

That said, Cadillac now has several models meant to battle the imports and burnish the brand. The XTS need only appeal to the dwindling, yet still sizable, number of buyers who want an old-fashioned American luxury car.

2014 Impala Production Line
Responding to strong demand for the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox and redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Impala, General Motors has decided to extend production on the consolidated line at its Oshawa, Ontario assembly plant to 2016. General Motors was previously set on ending production in June of 2014. Presently, Oshawa’s consolidated line manufactures the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox and the aging, fleet-only Chevrolet Impala Limited, while the plant’s flexible assembly line builds the 2014 Buick Regal, the 2014 Chevrolet Impala, the 2014 Cadillac XTS, and the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro. This is welcome news for Unifor, the union previously known as the Canadian Auto Workers. “It is a testament to what we’ve been saying about this plant all along — that the skills and efficiency of the workers at the plant make it worth keeping open,” reads a statement from Unifor president Jerry Dias. The extension to 2016 represents a big win for the Canadian plant, who suffered a significant blow amidst last December’s announcement that production of the Chevrolet Camaro will change hands to Lansing, Michigan after 2015. This move will allow General Motors to consolidate vehicle assembly using its rear-wheel-drive Alpha architecture, which underpins the Cadillac ATS and new Cadillac CTS models. President of Unifor Local 222 union Ron Svajlenko was optimistic in remarks made to Automotive News: "The extension into 2016 gives our workforce some stability and again, we were going through a potential of layoffs and right now that's not the case, so that's very good news for us. As long as we continue to build vehicles out of that facility, we have the opportunity to remain in the hunt for any kind of long-term additional products that General Motors may need to build." Despite General Motors CEO Dan Akerson saying last year that Canada is “the most expensive place to build a car in the world right now,” it appears that the Oshawa plant’s reputation for high-quality manufacturing has kept it afloat. A statement from General Motors of Canada advised that “all scheduling adjustments are subject to market demand,” which is yet another silver lining for the consolidated line’s roughly 650 employees. If sales of the Equinox and Impala Limited remain high, it could very well allow the Oshawa plant to again dodge the dreaded guillotine come 2016.

This 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport has guts. You and your passengers can feel it the moment you hit the gas and the twin-turbo V-6 unleashes its 410 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. There is a quiet, strong presence, an understated confidence. The torque peaks at 1900 rpm, providing punch for launches. Then the revs build, the six cylinders unlimber and you're cruising effortlessly at high freeway speeds. The XTS Vsport is certainly no DeVille.
