Cadillac XTS

Finally, three new versions of the Cadillac XTS were revealed by the General Motors Fleet & Commercial Division. Just to be clear, these are not special editions, but limousine, livery and funeral coaches. The first one is the livery model of the Cadillac XTS. This one receives power from a 3.6-liter V6 engine capable of developing 300 horsepower. All the output is being transferred to the wheels through a 6-speed gearbox. The fuel consumption ranges between 17 mpg in the city cycle, and 28 mpg on the highway. The code name for the XTS Livery Sedan Package is W20.


The model was equipped with a lot of different elements like HID headlights, Brembo brakes and magnetic ride control suspension with air-leveling at the rear. The list continues with remote start, a rear vision camera, obstacle detection system, CUE infotainment system and illuminated door handles. The model also features passive entry and it sends the output to the road through 19-inch polished alloy wheels. The ones that feel this is not enough for them can also choose the luxury level 1 package. To be more precise, this includes heated and cooled adjustable front seats, a premium audio system with surround sound, wood trim, an ambient lighting package and a navigation system.


The new Cadillac XTS Livery offers enough space for three. It has 56.3-inch shoulder room, 40-inch legroom, and 54.3-inch hip room. For the luggage there is an 18 cubic feet boot available. Unfortunately there is no information available at the time about the limousine and hearse. The carmaker wishes to offer more luxury for the interior than the standard XTS models. The Lincoln Town Car has been its rival for quite some time now, and there are chances the XTS might not manage to sell just as many units, but why not try?
