2017 Cadillac XTS OVERVIEW

The XTS is no longer the largest Cadillac sedan following the introduction of the CT6 in 2016. Nevertheless, the XTS should satisfy the big-car aspirations of most traditional Cadillac shoppers with the available twin-turbo V6 showcasing its stout performance credentials.

What's New for 2017

Modest changes accompany the 2017 Cadillac XTS. To begin, some models benefit from a revised fully reconfigurable 12.3-inch gauge cluster. A teen driver feature is also new, designed to help parents encourage safe driving habits with their youngsters. The 2017 XTS V-Sport is now outfitted with an exclusive 20-inch wheel design.

Choosing Your Cadillac XTS

You can choose between two 3.6-liter V6 engines when shopping for a 2017 XTS. The standard engine is naturally aspirated and delivers a robust 304 horsepower. Optionally, you can choose a twin-turbo variant, delivering a fetching 410 horsepower. The turbo is so powerful that it only comes with all-wheel drive, while base models offer standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive. Both engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with tap-shift control.

All models are outfitted with Magnetic Ride Control, an adaptive suspension system originally offered in the Corvette. The XTS is available in six trim levels, including two V-Sport trims.

This model is EPA-rated at 18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway with the standard V6 engine and front-wheel drive. Choose the twin-turbo and your sedan is EPA-rated at 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.


Priced from $46,290, the base XTS model is outfitted with a sport grille, HID headlights, 19-inch painted aluminum wheels, heated power-adjusted side mirrors, and daytime running lights. This model also provides leather seats, a leather-wrapped wood steering wheel with a heating element, paddle shifters, Cadillac CUE telematics, a navigation system, and an 8-speaker Bose audio system. OnStar and Bluetooth connectivity, wireless charging, and zoned climate control are included.


With a price starting at $50,290, the Luxury edition brings in upper and lower daytime running lights, dual stainless steel exhaust, and special wheels. You’ll also get upgraded wood trim, a rear vision camera, heated second-row outboard seats, and front and rear park assist.

Premium Luxury

Choose the Premium Luxury edition and you’ll pay from $56,790 to obtain one. This model is outfitted with intelligent headlamps, adaptive forward lighting, and available 20-inch painted aluminum wheels. You’ll also get the reconfigurable gauge cluster, three-zone climate control, a head-up display, and the driver awareness package composed of high-end active safety features, including forward collision alert.

V-Sport Premium Luxury

The V-Sport models bring in the twin-turbo engine and all-wheel drive, and offers the same amenities as the standard Premium Luxury edition with a $64,790 starting price. You also receive Brembo front anti-lock brakes and 20-inch wheels to help bring this performance sedan to a certain stop.


Choose the top-of-the-line Platinum edition and your price starts at $65,590. This model brings in semi-aniline full leather seats, 22-way power adjustable front seats with massage, a sueded-microfiber headliner, sunroof, and a rear-window sunshade.

CarsDirect Tip

The Cadillac XTS offers something for everyone from the livery driver to the track-minded enthusiast. You don’t need the V-Sport to enjoy superior driving dynamics, but choosing all-wheel drive is a sensible upgrade. Start with the Luxury edition and add all-wheel drive to find a satisfying blend of luxury and performance.
