With the Lincoln Town Car having been discontinued, Cadillac is looking to take advantage of the limousine and livery market with its 2013 XTS model. The American automaker has now revealed its Hearse, Limousine, and Livery package variants for the 2013 XTS.

While many livery-packaged vehicles are often stripped down, low-cost variants of the standard model, Cadillac will actually be adding more luxurious amenities to its XTS Livery package. An air-leveling rear suspension, heated rear seats, and side and rear window shades will clearly boost the attractiveness of the XTS, which Cadillac aims towards luxury hotels and similar venues. As a result, however, it’s unlikely to become a volume replacement for the Town Car.

Considering the new standard the luxury American automaker has set with the interior of the XTS, the limo is certain to be opulent. As for the hearse, well, we’re sure someone will want to go out in style.

    The Cadillac Limousine has not looked good since the early 90's when they streached the Fleetwood Brougham. As someone who rents limousines on a regular basis for evenings out and pleasure, the cadillac will never pull up in front of my house. When you say limousine you think magistic, regal, classy. Not sporty, small, and has the look of a VW Jetta. If I am correct Lincolnwill still be making the Town Car for Limousine applications so at least the limousine industry has one saving grace. Cadillac does not even make a luxury car anymore with the death of the Deville. People who want luxury, soft ride, triditional lines, and a roomy car are just plain stuck in the american market. Mercedes are priced more expensive than Cadillac but now and I thought I would never say this in my life, I would spend the extra and Buy the Mercedes. They have what consumers like me want. Large opliunet cars every luxury feature possible and then some, better lines (and I will not say perfect) than any new Caddi, it just comes with a price tag and unfortunely if you want a "luxury" car that is what you have to spend. Cadillac needs to bring back the Fleetwood completely redisigned but still with a reto look, pleanty of interrior lights like the old ones used to have, strictly a luxury ride, and a price that people can afford. I have a feeling a car like that would sell very well and bring people back from the foregin markets.

      Well tell him . To bring the town car back. It's the best out there. Wide, super smooth ride. Luxuriously perfect even for limos.
