2018 Cadillac XTS Features Luxury Upgrades
The new 2018 Cadillac XTS is coming to a Cadillac dealer near you and it’s guaranteed to be full of exciting updates. Everything from the vehicle’s chassis to its infotainment system has received a fresh makeover–are you ready?
The changes to the new XTS model are immediately noticeable and address some of the critiques drivers have given of the vehicle since its introduction. First, the new Cadillac’s tires have been fully redesigned to improve the quality of the ride while reducing outside noise for an even quieter, more comfortable cabin experience. Refreshed front and rear fascias give the XTS a sleek, modern feel and the addition of new fenders, a new grille and the inclusion of LED headlights really takes the XTS over the edge into ultra-luxury territory.
Inside, Cadillac fans will enjoy vastly-improved comfort amidst brand new color and trim options, including a revised Jet Black theme with shale accents or a Maple Sugar theme. Both new themes are available for the XTS, XTS Luxury and XTS Premium Luxury models.
Drivers who lean into the XTS’s potential for out-of-this-world comfort and luxury by opting for the vehicle’s platinum models will enjoy a leather-wrapped cabin complete with a microfiber suede headliner, premium wood trim on the steering wheel, console, instrument panel and door panels and full-leather seating. Heated and ventilated seats are also available.
But the most important changes to the 2018 Cadillac XTS are under the hood. The vehicle will come standard with Cadillac’s twin-turbo 3.6L V-6 engine, capable of creating 410 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The twin-turbo (which is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission) has the distinction of being one of the most power-dense six-cylinder engines in the segment.
And, of course, the new 2018 Cadillac XTS comes fully equipped with a range of stellar safety features to keep you and your family insulated from danger. The XTS’s suite of advanced safety tech includes radar, camera and ultrasonic sensors to help prevent crashes and bolster driver vision and awareness of road hazards. The vehicle is available with a Driver Awareness Package that features Low Speed Automatic Braking, Following Distance Indicators, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
Other exciting new upgrades to the XTS include: standard Brembo front brakes, an advanced all-wheel-drive system with electronically controlled limited-slip differential, standard 19-inch wheels and available 20-inch wheels, four USB ports, and a standard eight-speaker Bose audio system.
