The new 2013 Cadillac XTS is Cadillac’s new flagship luxury sedan, and when it hits dealers in the spring it will start at a base price of $44, 995.
There will be three trim levels available on the XTS: Luxury, Premium and Platinum. The platinum model will be the top of the line XTS and come with standard unique wheels, interior trim and unique materials to set itself apart from the other two options packages.
Cadillac’s new CUE infotainment system will also be included in the XTS, and promises to offer users an intuitive control experience. “CUE is intuitive, in part because its control and command structure aims to be consistent with popular devices millions of people already use,” said Don Butler, vice president of Cadillac marketing.
The XTS will premiere Cadillac’s new “directional tactile sensation,” system, which is essentially a setup that warns the driver of potential collisions by vibrating the bottom of the seat.
The XTS will be competing with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6, Lexus GS, BMW 5-Series and Infiniti M37.
