For the 2013 model year, Cadillac released an all-new sedan that replaces a pair of its most iconic models: the STS, which is descended from the Seville, and the DTS, once known as the DeVille. The new sedan -- dubbed the XTS -- features aggressive styling, a potent V6 engine and an array of features worthy of Cadillac's name.
The 2013 XTS comes in four trim levels: Base, Luxury, Premium and Platinum. All feature a 304-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine that sends 304 horsepower to the front wheels through and a six-speed automatic transmission.
On all but the Base model, buyers can opt for an all-wheel-drive system. A front-wheel drive XTS gets 17 mpg city and 28 mpg highway; with the heavier all-wheel drive system, the XTS returns 17 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.
Cadillac has stepped up its game in recent years, but it still has an uphill battle in the premium sedan marketplace.
