The Cadillac XTS is the American luxury automaker’s new flagship sedan, and priced at $44,995 it’s poised to do a fine job competing against the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6, Lexus GS, BMW 5-Series, and Infiniti M37.
Available in three trim levels, Luxury, Premium, and Platinum, the XTS will also feature Cadillac’s new CUE infotainment system and the American automaker’s new “directional tactile sensation” system, which is a fancy way naming a seat that vibrates to alert the driver of any eminent danger.
The XTS should be hitting dealerships any day now and to stir up some excitement, Cadillac has released dozens of photos of its flagship sedan, giving us a look at it from all different angles. Those interested in buying one up will have access to a 3.6-liter V6 powerplant with 300 hp mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard while all-wheel drive is available as an option.
The front-wheel drive XTS has an estimated fuel economy of 17 mpg city and 28 mpg highway while the all-wheel drive will see just a slight decrease at 27 mpg highway, with city economy remaining the same.
