The American based automotive giant General Motors has big plans for its Cadillac XTS and will introduce the production version of the vehicle at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
According to the automaker, the XTS will replace both the XTS and DTS becoming Cadillac’s largest vehicle and the move is actually part of a bigger plan for the company to reinvent itself so we can expect some pretty interesting features on the new model.
One of the most interesting “toys” on the XTS will be General Motors’ new CUE infotainment system which will be later offered on the entire Cadillac range but don’t rub your hands with a big smile on your face because the new model is scheduled to hit the production line in spring next year, coming in later as a 2013 model year.
There’s no official word on the Cadillac XTS’s engine but rumors say that it might get a turbocharged version of GM’s 2.5 liter inline-four which will be developing around 300 horsepower but we are living in “eco” times so a hybrid version for the new model might also be available.
The Cadillac XTS Platinum Concept has been presented at the Detroit Auto Show and the vehicle was actually “friendly” to the environment, where a 3.6 liter V6 engine was mated to a plug-in hybrid developing a total output of 350 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
