2013 XTS Overview

Not Quite The Cadillac Of Cadillacs There was a time when the name of the second oldest American automotive nameplate meant something more. The term "Cadillac" was widely used to express the best of the best. In fact, it was common for people to use the term when referring to other items (e.g., "It's the Cadillac of stereo receivers" or the "Cadillac of washing machines") to drive home the point that something was nothing short of top-of-the-line. It was good to be Cadillac, and the automaker supported the conviction with vehicles such as the 1928 Series 341, 1936 V12 Series 85 and 1947 Series 62. By the 1970s, though, much of the luster had begun to fade. Then vehicles like the Cimarron and Catera happened. But Cadillac has been on track to redeem itself. Vehicles like the SRX crossover and CTS range (especially the high-performance CTS-V models) have helped the 110-year-old luxury automaker alter the public's opinion and reinvigorate the brand. Retiring the full-size DTS is another milestone, as fresh new products began to fill the pipeline. Enter the all-new 2013 Cadillac XTS. For the next couple years, the full-size luxury sedan is tasked with holding the flagship role in Cadillac's passenger car lineup. Meaning, in so many words, that the range-topping model loaded with nearly every bell-and-whistle known to man and a base price of $60,000 should be... well... the Cadillac of Cadillacs. Where the Lacrosse wears leisure suit sheetmetal, the XTS arrives with much crisper and more attractive attire. Perusing Autoblog's archives, first word of the Cadillac XTS arrived nearly three years ago at a General Motors press conference. But it wasn't until January of 2010, at the Detroit Auto Show, when we first took pictures of the XTS Platinum concept on stage. At the time, we said "...this is one of, if not the most production ready 'concepts' we've ever seen." More than two years later, we found ourselves behind the wheel of a production XTS (appearing strikingly familiar to the concept) running through the hills above Malibu, California. The XTS is built on GM's Epsilon II platform, shared with the Buick Lacrosse. It is a solid chassis, and its use allows Cadillac to also borrow the engine, transmission and front suspension from its near-cousin. But to make a Cadillac a Cadillac, the automaker had to do more than just a simple tailor. Where the Lacrosse wears leisure suit sheetmetal, the XTS arrives with much crisper and more attractive attire. It is modern, sophisticated and classy. From the automaker's signature grille and HID headlights, to the low center-mounted LED reverse lamps, the overall styling has presence. In fact, it's a bonafide head turner.. The interior is even more distinctive. Leather upholstery contrasted by real wood and aluminum trim is standard across the board, and it makes the cabin especially warm and inviting. Nearly every imaginable surface a human is likely to touch has been addressed either with soft materials or premium-grade components. Higher grades feature a …
