The luxury full-sized sedan Cadillac XTS started rolling off the production line in 2013 for the North America market and 2014 for the Chinese one.

The car was produced as a replacement for the DTS and STS though it is much larger and a lot more luxurious.

Its Epsilon II platform is shared among many other brands under the General Motors ownership such as the Chevrolet Malibu and the Buick LaCrosse.

For the American market a 3.6 litre V6 is available under the hood and Chinese markets have the choice of a 2 litre turbocharged engine to get around vehicle taxes in the country.

If you opt for the V-Sport trim then you can also choose a twin-turbocharger addition for your engine.

Transmission is also limited to a 6 speed automatic only though that can drive either the front or all wheels, decided at point of purchase.

Inside the XTS you will find a luxurious interior with technology such as dual-zone climate control and adaptive cruise-control.

A long wheelbase “XTS-L” version was also introduced, popular with chauffeur driven executives.

The car received a face-lift in 2018 improving the front and rear styling to keep the XTS up with the rest of the Cadillac range.

Sales peaked in the second year that this car was on sale and has slowly declined since as many drivers seem to be switching to SUV’s as the technology and choice gets better.

In 2019 the American luxury auto manufacturer brought in the CT5 that is intended to replace this model.
