With the launch of its all-new 2013 XTS luxury sedan early in 2012, Cadillac can finally move its car lineup from being an “all-CTS, all the time” shop to one with a bit more diversity.
While the CTS (and the unlamented STS) catered more toward the sport-luxury buyer, Cadillac built the XTS to appeal more to the traditional luxury buyer. In other words, although the official word is that the XTS replaces both the STS and DTS in the Cadillac lineup, it’s much more in line with what the DTS had been providing than what the STS was. That is, it’s a traditional luxury car with much less sport in the equation.
