2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport

Not long after bombing around the Milford Road Course in the new CTS Vsport, Cadillac invited me to try out its other new-for-2014 Vsport model: the XTS.

    1321473000

That may prove a tall order, but the General is going about it in an interesting way. Rather than (or in addition to) marketing the new XTS directly to prospective buyers, Cadillac is ...
