Top of the line large American luxury sedan
The Cadillac XTS sets the benchmark for a large American luxury sedan in many ways. Its back seat legroom is best-in-class. Its trunk space is outstanding. Its front seats feel like a shiatsu massage (though they apparently may pinch larger owners than my wife and me). Its top-line available safety features and heads-up display also lead the pack. The performance of the XTS is very good for the gas mileage it attains. Even on base-models, there's a capable magnetic-ride suspension which delivers a luxurious ride but lets you feel that the road is still there. There's a Camaro engine under the hood with over 300 HP and yet nearly 30 MHG highway. If you're like me, you'll enjoy the paddle shifters, which deliver quite a good response without harsh shifts (except from 2nd to 1st for aggressive engine braking). Further, for a large car, the XTS feels like a "driver's car," tracking well in moderately hard turns and demanding subtle inputs at high speeds. To complete the performance available even on the base models, the car has Brembo brakes, and you'll notice them; its stopping power is extraordinary for its weight (see for yourself against the German and Asian competition in any published comparison test). And finally, there's CUE and natural voice recognition. If you spend a few minutes understanding what Cadillac has accomplished here, you'll see the options you've been given to control every facet of your entertainment and comfort experience in the car. The XTS doesn't get near enough recognition for being a beautiful, luxurious, and satisfying car for an individual, couple or family that likes to live large. Anyone considering such a car would be advised to take a close look at the minor negatives being parroted by the automotive press and think for themselves.
2014 Cadillac XTS
I currently have over 1200 miles on my new 2014 XTS and it has been a dream to drive and no problems what so ever. The Parking assist is amazing, navigation is unreal , CUE touch screen takes some practice but once mastered is terrific. I have the 3.6 liter 305 Hp engine and it is more than enough power and pick up for me - if you want to see how much trouble you can get into - you can get the 450 hp 3.6 liter double turbo - zero to 60 in 6.5 seconds is fast enough for me and faster than my 2007 CTS. The rear camera is becoming standard on most cars now but the crash alert warning system is special - as is the lane alert warning by vibrating the drivers seat. I compared the Mercedes E and BMW 5 series as well as the new 2014 CTS sedan ( its double turbot 2.0 liter engine worried me ) - and the XTS won my evaluation hands down.
