The photos of the new Cadillac XTS have leaked on the Chinese website Autohome, and we can clearly see that the 2018 model will come with some important upgrades. The XTS was introduced back in 2013, and despite the fact that the company makes much more profit with the CT6, they have no plans to discontinue the XTS.
This model is on the market for the diversity, but it is also there for those customers who believe that Cadillac vehicles should be large cruisers and not sport sedans. The 2018 Cadillac XTS which comes with new details will hit the market later this year, and now, let’s take a closer look.
The exterior design will receive some minor tweaks whereas there will be more changes under the skin. First of all, the new vehicle is going to be based on the latest version of Epsilon II platform, which has been significantly updated.
In addition, a far more responsive nine-speed automatic transmission is going to replace the ongoing 6-speed gearbox. Moreover, a more potent 3.6-liter V6 engine that powers the Buick LaCrosse is probably going to substitute the current 3.6-liter V6 which is the base engine that delivers 304 horsepower. The carmaker should offer the FWD configuration as standard, but the customers can opt for the AWD system if they want to.
The interior modifications remain unknown, but as soon as we find out something about it, you will know that. The 2017 model came with the redesigned instrument cluster, which means that this will not change, but there is a possibility that Cadillac adds the latest variant of CUE infotainment system. This version operates like a smartphone, and it is much easier to use.
