Cadillac set to unveil latest XTS models

UAE, June 29, 2017

Cadillac, a leading automotive manufacturer, is set to launch two new spacious and comfortable sedan models - Cadiallac XTS and Platinum V-Sport - in the Middle East by the end of this year.

Cadillac, a leading automotive manufacturer, is set to launch two new spacious and comfortable sedan models - Cadiallac XTS and Platinum V-Sport - in the Middle East in the fourth quarter.

The XTS 2018 model has received technical, chassis and appearance changes to heighten its appeal, said a statement from Cadillac.

The vehicle will come along with the XTS Platinum V-Sport, which takes its performance to a higher level, driven by an exclusive twin-turbo engine and all-wheel drive.

The model’s new exterior styling features freshened front and rear fascias. The appearance change includes new fenders, front and rear fascias, grille, and the addition of LED headlights and tail lamp in keeping with today’s portfolio, it added.

The updated chassis has revised tire designs for both 19” and 20” tyres—improving ride comfort while reducing outside noise for a quieter more comfortable cabin.

When it comes to trunk space, the XTS is in a league of its own, with 18 cubic feet (509 L), exceeding some midsize and full-size competitors — that’s more than the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The cargo advantage means room for five or more suitcases, said the statement from Cadillac.

Also, there is a revised jet black with shale-accented environment interiors available for XTS Luxury models. The XTS Platinum models include new jet black and maple sugar with jet black accents.

Platinum models feature a leather-wrapped interior with microfiber suede headliner, as well as premium wood trim on the steering wheel, console, centre stack, instrument panel and door panels, said a statement.

The Cadillac twin-turbo 3.6L V-6 headlines the XTS’ powertrain lineup and is standard on the V-Sport model, delivering SAE-certified 410 horsepower (306 kW) and 500 Nm of torque, making it one of the most power-dense six-cylinder engines in the segment.

The XTS’ standard 3.6L V-6 is rated at 304 horsepower (227 kW) and 355 Nm of torque. Lightweight features help reduce overall weight for greater efficiency and a more favorable front-to-rear weight balance.

The engines are matched with six-speed automatic transmissions and tap-shift control, it said.

Cadillac provides available advanced safety based on its “control-and-alert” strategy, employing advanced technologies — including radar, camera and ultrasonic sensors — to help prevent crashes.

The model’s safety features bolster driver vision and awareness of road hazards and can even help drivers avert potential crashes. In certain situations, Cadillac’s advanced crash-avoidance systems, such as automatic braking, can automatically apply braking in response to potential hazards, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
