Here's the first image of the gorgeous new Cadillac XTS, a modern full-sized replacement for the outgoing DTS/STS twin bus-sized sedans. Behold, the Cadillac of luxo-barges.
Confirming what was already well known, General Motors said today it would add two new Cadillac models next year — the big XTS and the small ATS, a 3-Series fighter whose profile was shown in this chiaroscuro teaser.
GMInsideNews says the Magic 8-Ball guiding General Motors' vehicle choices has answered the question of "Should Cadillac get a flagship sedan" with "It is decidedly so." Given how long GM has dithered on this, count on someone else asking again.
The Cadillac XTS Platinum Concept was designed as a luxury sedan/personal headquarters — built for luxury and connectivity. It's like a giant Vertu cell phone encased in a cocoon of blubber hiding in a sleek, stylish spaceship-like metal muumuu.
Some outlets speculate on three-letter Cadillac naming conventions. Jalopnik brings you proof. This shot, taken today of GM's official show display, shows the concept revealed last night is, in fact, the STS/DTS-replacing Cadillac XTS — the Metamucil of Cadillacs.
