Carrying a current line-up that relies heavily on the popularity of the CTS and the Escalade SUV, America’s quintessential luxury brand now seems to be on a roll as it prepares for the XTS as well as the entry level market ATS, effectively tying together the two ends of the market spectrum.
Rumored for under the hood is a twin-turbo direct-injection 3.6-liter V6 making well over 300-hp. In concept form, that same engine was mated to an electric motor, making 350-hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. What we do know the XTS will feature is Cadillac’s new CUE telematics system with an 8-inch (or optional 12.3-inch) LCD screen on the dash with simple and clear controls. Cadillac says the system will also feature iPad-like functionality with motions like tap, flick, swipe and spread.
