2013 Cadillac XTS production version leaked

2013 Cadillac XTS production version leaked, 880, 10.11.2011

Debut in Los Angeles

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.

You people don't get it. THIS IS NOT CADILLAC's FLAGSHIP. Though it replaces the DTS & STS it will occupy the same role as the (FWD) ES 350 does for Lexus while the Lexus GS supposedly handles the sportier side. The CTS will become slightly larger to compete against the E class & 5 series as the sport sedan offering. Cadillac is making a Flagship that will compete against the S class and the 7 series but it will be a proper flagship. Rear wheel drive, powerful efficient engines and sybaritic luxury.

It's a nice car, in all terms. But for the pricing I would ALWAYS prefer a Mercedes over any Cadillac or Lincoln. They simply do not have that nice riding, they do not have that STATUS Appeal, that Good Taste and that REAL LUXURY combined with High Tech. Good Work Cadillac. Awesomely, Extraordinary Work Mercedes, that E Class is not nice, is beautiful; can't wait to see upcoming S Class.

We finally have a proper Cadillac again! This is what a Cadillac ought to be. Big, long, heavy and dripping with luxury, leather and wood. Like the Ciel Concept.

Better than the current flagships on sale. I don't like the way all GM cars look like it has the same center stack HVAC control/infotainment system. I'm sure there are differences but it looks like it came from the same supplier as Hyundai... Goodluck to Cadillac...sure could use some extra flavor in that sector of the market.

It doesnt look too bad, I like the interior (but dont' understand where the rear headrests are hidden, is it one large for all rear passengers or what?)

Now I envy people living in America. I would definitely buy this car compared to any other luxury car.

Front wheel drive?? That doesn't make sense.

The previous DTS and STS were so plain(like Ford's Crown Vic) but this shows improvement. I hope they concentrate on quality rather than quantity.

Nice status symbol! Not sure how it will age but for someone who never turns a head in Caddy's direction, I have to admit, I love this design. Not one bad angle to it.
