A single image of the all-new 2013 Cadillac XTS has found its way to a slide show on Cadillac.com. With no fanfare we can only guess that this was a slip up, or perhaps a risky PR move with a few unsuspecting seed sites to put the scoop into motion.
Intentional or not, we already know the 2013 XTS will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in one week, so the timing of this alleged stumble is quite good.
Essentially a production version of the Cadillac XTS Platinum concept, the full-size sedan will replace the DTS and STS. As such, the car will feature a luxurious interior and the CUE infotainment system.
Power is likely to come from a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 318 hp (237 kW / 322 PS) and 275 lb-ft (372 Nm) of torque. Front-wheel drive will be standard but all-wheel drive should be optional.
The LA Auto Show opens to the media on November 16.
