DETROIT — Limousine operators, hotel/resorts and funeral directors now qualify for a $3,000 LVY fleet incentive on the new 2013 Cadillac XTS (W20) Livery Sedan, Cadillac said Monday.
“The additional customer incentive of $3,000 off of the already attractive MSRP price of $47,495 (includes destination) is evident of Cadillac’s commitment to the professional vehicle industry,” said Ray Bush, Cadillac Professional Vehicle Program Manager.
With the rebate, the XTS sedan will be priced at $44,495, falling just slightly ahead of the initial $43,200 price of the competing 2013 Lincoln MKT Town Car. The pricing levels are far more competitive than for the previous generation of the two top-selling limousine vehicles that were discontinued last year: The 2011 Lincoln Town Car Executive L, priced at about $41,000, and the Cadillac DTS which ranged around $50,000.
The XTS Livery Sedan will make its West Coast debut Tuesday evening, May 8 in Los Angeles at a meeting of the Greater California Livery Association. LCT article on Cadillac XTS at GCLA here.

Included in the long list of standard features are: HID headlamps, 19-in. aluminum wheels, Magnetic Ride Control, rear air springs, rear vision camera, illuminating door handles, compact spare, transmission oil cooler, premium microfiber headliner, rear center console and the Professional Vehicle Protection Plan (PVPP) extended warranty (3-years/150,000-miles, whichever comes first).
