2In Detail: Cadillac XTS

For generations Cadillac has been synonymous with large, American luxury sedans. But in 2012 the unthinkable happened: Cadillac failed to field a single full-sized car. Cadillac's mid-sized CTS lineup had taken center stage, with bigger models like the STS (formerly Seville) and DTS (formerly DeVille) falling by the wayside. 2011 was the last year for the DTS.

8TRANSLOGIC 138: Cadillac XTS

Cadillac is often associated with large luxury sedans of a bygone era, but the iconic American automaker calls the XTS the "most technologically advanced production car in the brand's history." We put the Cadillac XTS and its CUE telematics system to the test.

69Cadillac rushing update for laggy CUE infotainment system

BMW's innovative iDrive was introduced in 2001, and a dozen years later, automakers are still learning hard lessons about what consumers want in their infotainment systems. In response to owner feedback – and a few media drubbings – about the delayed and occasionally fickle responses of its CUE (short for Cadillac User Experience) system, Cadillac has told Wired that it's going to issue an update this year.

The Cadillac Of Stopgaps

101Dodge Dart falls short of Consumer Reports Recommended, Caddy XTS and Lincoln MKS, too

The Dodge Dart, Cadillac XTS and Lincoln MKS all failed to earn a "Recommended" rating from Consumer Reports. When it came to the compact Dart, the organization's testers thought the vehicle offered a quiet cabin, solid-feeling chassis and nimble suspension, but the new model ultimately fell short of the coveted rating due to powertrain issues. The institute's reviewers found the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to be underpowered and noted "drivability issues" when the available turbocharged

54Cadillac XTS configurator ready for your own personal livery

You can now attack the 2013 Cadillac XTS configurator with tame abandon. Why tame? Because there are hardly any options; understandable for a temporary flagship – just about everything is standard or included in a trim package.

72Cadillac releases trunkload of new XTS images

Maybe it's just having downloaded 50-plus images of the new full-size Cadillac, but the 2013 Cadillac XTS is starting to grow on us. And not like a fungus, but like a jumbo CTS – one fitted with Magnetic Ride Control and HiPer Struts, all-wheel-drive and Brembos. And a trunk that's enormous enough that GM says the XTS "is in a league of its own," promising "room for five or more suitcases."

60More details emerge about new RWD Cadillac flagship

Every single Cadillac XTS post ends up with comments deploring the sedan's FWD – even a post that speaks of nothing more than the iPad buyers will get with the car. For those folks especially, Car and Driver has loaded the hopper with news on the possible treats coming from the Wreath and Crest. Examining uses of the Omega platform, C/D says "a proper rear-drive sedan" will arrive in "a few" years and take the top spot in the lineup. Predictions are that it will have a rakish roofline and

972013 Cadillac XTS to come standard with iPad

If you read the owner's manual of your car you'd begin to realize how much of your own vehicle you didn't know about. If it's a car made within the past few years, then the owner's manual covering the dirty bits will be joined by an even thicker manual that covers just the infotainment system. Cadillac, however, has a better way for buyers to learn the CUE-powered mysteries of the $44,995 XTS: give owners an iPad with the car, loaded with tutorials on how to get the most out of the Cadillac User

33Cadillac expanding XTS production to China

Cadillac's new XTS isn't just headed to China, it will be built there.

42Cadillac adding vibrating Safety Seat Alert to full suite of safety tech [w/video]

It's going to be a big year for Cadillac, which will soon be reloading its model lineup with the new ATS and XTS sedans. The 2013 ATS compact slots in below the CTS, while the larger 2013 XTS aims to take care of traditional Caddy buyers looking for immensity above all else. While at diametrical ends of the spectrum, the two new models will share a technology package that all revolves around a new seat.

58Cadillac choreographs light show for approaching its 2013 XTS

Cadillac has already been releasing a steady drip of information about what's going into its 2013 XTS like its autonomous-vehicle tech, and now it's focusing on lighting choreography. Cadillac reminds us that its lighting signature is vertical bands of illumination, tying it back to 1948, when the tailfins for which the brand is still known were first used on cars like the Fleetwood Sixty Special and Series 61 Coupe.

42Cadillac XTS to feature safety tech developed from autonomous vehicles

Five years ago, GM engineers, a variety of partner companies, and Carnegie Mellon University built a Chevrolet Tahoe that autonomously traversed 60 miles of urban traffic in less than six hours, taking home the DARPA Urban Challenge win. Later this year, some of that technology will make its way to production in the 2013 Cadillac XTS.

54Editors' Choice: Top Five 2011 LA Auto Show Debuts

We're packing up our cameras and laptops and heading out of the Los Angeles Convention Center, but before we seal the lid on the 2011 LA Auto Show, it's time to reflect on our staff's favorite debuts of the past two days. Unlike previous shows, there was nothing here in LA that truly stood out as the clear Best In Show winner, but because of that, there were plenty of good arguments amongst the staff about the five best cars on display in Los Angeles.

1262013 Cadillac XTS aims to straighten up and fly right

The Cadillac DTS and STS never gained much favor outside of livery slaves and foot-in-the-grave pensioners, and for good reason. Utterly devoid of sex appeal or even the presence of the Escalade or less costly CTS, the Barges of Ft. Lauderdale always came across as something Cadillac had to sell, not something it wanted to.

1282013 Cadillac XTS looms large over lineup

The Cadillac DTS has been consigned to history, leaving Cadillac without a full-size luxury vehicle for the first time in many years. General Motors will rectify that problem with the all-new 2013 Cadillac XTS. The XTS features dramatic "Art and Science" styling cues, with sharp, distinctive lines and the next iteration of Cadillac's trademark chrome grille.
