New sedan models recently revealed by top domestic limo OEMs carry longtime competition to the next generation.
After a successful unveiling at the New York Auto Show last week, the brand looks toward building long-term marketing projects.
The 8L45 transmission is based off the same acclaimed design from the Corvette Stingray, and calibrated for the new Cadillac engines.
AutoGuide reports that the XTS will remain until 2019 when Cadillac will have rolled out the CT6 and have CT7 and CT9 sedans in the works.
With an MSRP of $70,000 and the space of a short wheelbase BMW 7-Series, the CT6 aims to compete in the premium luxury sedan category.
The CT6 body will be 198 pounds lighter than a comparable steel body, enabling more showroom appeal features like 20-inch wheels.
Bloomberg recently wrote a review hyping the vehicle as a “beast for the suburban wilds” and the preeminent vehicle of its kind.
The 34-speaker system will have amplifiers, tweeters, and 10-inch woofer with twin speakers built into the headrests.
Peak output is estimated to be at 400 hp, with 400 lb-ft of torque, making it one of the most power-dense V-6 DOHC engines in the world.
The CT6 will debut March 31 at the New York International Auto Show and go into production late this year.
Digital Trends goes over the ultra-luxury trim, which includes heated, cooled, and massaging seats, and even a refrigerator.
The largest Cadillac sedan offers more interior space than mid-size luxury cars and is comparable to full-size sedans.

Fans will get the chance to bid on this piece of automotive history at the Palm Springs Collector Car Auction.
Details on the CT6 will be announced at the New York Auto Show. It is expected to use a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6 engine.
