The last example of the Cadillac XTS has finally rolled off the production line, following years of rumors on the matter. Cadillac Society reports that the final XTS, a FWD Luxury model finished in Red Horizon Tintcoat, was the last one to be manufactured at GM’s Oshawa, Ontario plant this month.

Reports about the XTS’ demise have been circulating since 2017, but the car maker kept its FWD executive sedan around enough to give it a facelift for the 2018 model year despite having announced that it would not get a direct replacement.
