Cadillac XTS Gets Canadian Love

Posted on June 18, 2012

ONTARIO — Cadillac replaced both the front-wheel drive DTS and rear-wheel drive STS luxury sedans with the 2013 XTS, Cadillac’s new flagship.

2013 Cadillac XTS tested by LCT at GM's 2013 Product Preview in Tucson, Arizona.

Malcom Guinn, in his XTS article for Canada.com, writes that “Cadillac s shaking up its product line in a big way and the XTS sedan literally plays the biggest part in General Motors’ premium division.”

Although the XTS is shorter and narrow than the DTS, the revised proportions actually mean more interior room. “According to Cadillac’s tape measure,” Guinn writes, “there’s more rear-seat and trunk space than a BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6.”

Guinn also mentions something quite interesting: “There are no plans for a V8 option, but a plug-in gasoline-electric hybrid is reportedly in the pipeline.”
