Cadillac XTS Overview

Cadillac's XTS is a large front- or all-wheel-drive sedan, a cousin of the Buick LaCrosse. It's posh and quiet inside, with a beautifully-executed interior. But the ride is too ordinary for a large, luxury car and the 3.6 V6 engine sounds coarse when prodded. The roomy interior has comfortable seats. However, the touch-activated CUE infotainment interface, is unintuitive and frustrating to use, and the high rear deck impedes the view aft. The blind-spot warning system vibrates the driver's seat. A Vsport version with a twin-turbo 3.6-liter engine is new for 2014, and gives the XTS V8-like power. First year reliability is much below average.
