2013 Cadillac XTS: Photo Gallery

2013 Cadillac XTS

The 2013 Cadillac XTS is the first all-new large sedan from the American luxury marque since the STS debuted more than seven years ago. (The STS has since then been discontinued.)

Along with a larger-than-life, ornate grille and massive alloy wheels, there’s unique purple stitching along the dash trim and seats. It’s certainly an eccentric touch on an otherwise conventional-looking luxury sedan.

...other than the GM generic window switches this is another leap for Cadillac!!

WTF

How do you open the glove compartment?

sheth

Baffled how this is called a generic looking lux sedan while the crv is being praised for its "radical" update for 2012. When american cars take chances cars.com complains about bling or styling that will become dated. Xts is somewhat conservative and its still criticized.

Carma

The seats and wood parts of the interior look very nice. Not so keen on the extremely low profile tires.

Mike

Looks like an old people car. Headlights are from a previous gen Ford Fusion

sheth

very insightful Mike! and "old people car", Yes, definitely. Those 20" rims and massive Cadillac grille scream AARP special.

There's a button for the glove compartment on the right side of the big screen. Wonder how it works if the battery is dead.

These are 20" wheels, 19" are standard. I'd rather have a softer ride.

Very disappointing that GM is putting Malibu interior into their Cadillac brand. This new design is very bland and uninspiring but then again it's meant to appeal to old people. The new Hyundai Azera puts this new XTS to shame.

Brad:

I can only assume you are either not serious or a closed minded GM hater. The Azera's interior looks almost identical to that of a $15k Sonata. The XTS and Malibu interiors are similar in that both have steering wheels and nav screens- thats about it. They dont like alike at all. ONe of the biggest differences would be the obvious- the Cadillac lacks physical buttons and knobs on the center stack. Just a minor detail, I know.

George

That side profile looks like first generation CTS meets current Jaguar XJ.
Unfortunately both of those cars are rear wheel drive, so the styling doesn't work on a front wheel drive car.

and why is the turn signal UNDER the headlight?
and is GM still persisting with red turn signals?

Jay

I can't believe it is a 6 cly girl or older person car got to have a bigger engine man car or bring back DTS this should be called a CTS

Bowrider

I'd say it's a 6 cylinder because of the gas mileage and these days there is plenty of power in the 6s.

sheth

I think 300hp is more than decent power, even in a large car like this. The Lacrosse with 280hp could do 0-60 in 6.4 secs. Enough to get out of its own way with ease.

Mike

This design isn't very well executed. The Audi A6, MB E Class and BMW 5 Series look so much better. Why would anyone under 60 yrs old consider this? I doubt this land yacht will have any performance variant like the Audi S6. I don't see any reason for this model other than to appease the blue haired group. All that "bling" just looks gaudy on this disaster.

Bowrider

The 5 series and A6 are overpriced and underpowered. They couldn't be plainer looking. But, regardless of who your target market is or who ends up buying your car, they all pay with the same currency so what difference does it make?

Mike

You need to do some research buddy! Even optioned out, the A6 3.0 is a 300 hp supercharged engine thats under $50k. You also have the option of the 4.2 with 350 hp. The BMW has similar variants and both have the super high performance M and S versions. The Cadillac won't even offer all those engine options. Someone like yourself probably doesn't understand though.

Bowrider

Mike, you're the one who needs to do research. Find me an "optioned out" 3.0T under 50K. I think you'll find that you'll have to settle for a 2.0T. And, the 528 comes standard with 240hp. 300-240=60, a fairly significant difference in hp. Maybe you can do some simple math before you decide to insult me again.

You're always so quick to jump the gun and insult others on this site. You need to cool it with the insults.

Mike

I did. Go to audiusa.com. The numbers are all listed so it should be easy for you to comprehend. I'm not insulting anyone. As far as research, as I ALREADY pointed out, the Cadillac does not come with engine options. The Audi 2.0t starts at $41k which is a bargain for what you get. Look at the price and engine correlation it's pretty easy! Correcting ignorance is not insulting last time I checked.
P.S. I just bought an A6 3.0 and as far as "options" everything is pretty much standard. Got mine for $48,800. Sorry you pay retail for everything.

Bowrider

The price you negotiated with the dealer is not the same as the MSRP. You were comparing apples to oranges. Next time I do research for my car purchase, I'll be sure to use the search phrase, "what price did Mike pay for his."

For the record, this is an insult, "Someone like yourself probably doesn't understand though."

OB

Seriously, the window switches are EXACTLY the same as in my 2010 GMC Terrain. Nice try, but for the money, this Caddy needs attention to EVERY detail. Utter disappointment.
