    2016 Cadillac XTS OVERVIEW

    Cadillac's largest passenger car plays to the time-tested values of room, comfort, and features for the money. That said, the XTS also serves up all the technology you can handle and the chance to experience the most powerful V6 engine ever deployed in a luxury car.

    What's New for 2016

    A sport grille is now standard on most models, and a surround-view camera system is available for the first time. The infotainment system gains Apple CarPlay capability.

    Choosing Your Cadillac XTS

    The XTS is a true full-size luxury sedan with uncompromising room for five passengers and their luggage. The 3.6-liter V6 produces 304 horsepower in standard form and a stunning 410 when equipped with the optional twin turbochargers. All-wheel drive is available with the base V6 and mandatory with the turbo. Every XTS gets a six-speed automatic transmission and an adaptive suspension system.

    The XTS comes in four main trim levels. Models with the turbocharged engine carry the suffix Vsport.


    Carries all the expected Cadillac features, including leather and faux suede upholstery, heated front seats, Bluetooth phone and audio, keyless ignition, and rear parking sensors. The eight-speaker Bose sound system features HD and satellite radio. The standard CUE (Cadillac User Experience) system allows you to control all infotainment functions from a single interface using a touchscreen and/or voice commands. Note that the Standard XTS is strictly a front-driver; the all-wheel drive option begins at the next trim level.


    Adds indulgent touches likes extended wood interior trim, LED accent lights, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats with memory, heated rear seats, and ambient lighting. On the functional side, you get front parking sensors, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, and an automated parallel parking system.


    Offers a major dose of technology with a head-up display, configurable gauges, navigation, a 14-speaker Bose surround-sound system, and safety aids like blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist, and a surround-view camera system. The Premium Vsport adds the turbocharged engine and 20-inch wheels.


    Maxes out on luxury with upgraded leather seats, a distinctive grille design, 20-inch chrome-accented wheels, a panoramic sunroof, a power rear sunshade, and adaptive cruise control with automatic braking. Buyers who want the ultimate XTS can choose the Vsport treatment here as well.

    Both the Premium and Platinum offer a rear DVD/Blu-ray entertainment system with two foldout screens.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Options on the Standard model are limited, so we recommend upgrading to the popular Luxury trim if you want to do some customization. Not everyone needs the extra power of the Vsport models, but the twin-turbo engine does have a dramatic effect on the character of the car. You might insist on it after a test drive.
