It looks like Cadillac may have been a little too over-eager to get to the early bird special: it accidentally put up an official image of the all-new 2013 XTS on its consumer site a week before its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The car is almost a dead ringer to the XTS Platinum concept from last year’s Detroit auto show. The production XTS retains the concept’s mesh grille and swept-back headlamp design, while gaining a tamer set of lower intakes, although it does use more chrome trim. Also softened is the sharp character line, which now terminates just before the cut for the back of the rear door. From what we can see, the taillights are identical to those from the concept, and the wheels — while smaller — are pretty close to what we saw last year.
Stay tuned for the full details on the 2013 XTS, and live pictures from the car’s official debut next week at the L.A. Auto Show.
