Cadillac’s intention is to expand the range of the power of its XTS flagship sedan petrol six cylinder engine with twin turbo and will add two more electronic systems to the list of equipment feature additions. The update comes after a long while and the new model will be displayed in 2016 and available for sale orders in the early part of 2017. According to Cadillac’s CEO, the new redesign of the 2017 Cadillac XTS is the design team’s realization of the “Art and Science” philosophy the company applies in its aspirations in contributing to the process of achieving new aesthetics and innovations.
2017 Cadillac XTS – Looks and Shape Upgrade
As is always the case with any Cadillac car, the interior of the XTS as elegant as ever. Like the already existing models of all Cadillacs, the interior is constructed with only handcrafted materials. Luxury has improved although only slightly however there is not much room for the luxury features to be improved. New integration policies continue to be applied to the electronic equipment of the cabin, an example of this is the navigation system that has a folding touchscreen which is more than common in the CTS and SRX Cadillac models while XTS models now have less outmoded switches and buttons. The designers have successfully managed to combine all displays in one single dashboard which initially appears lifeless and black but lights up as you start the car. Beyond the new and more powerful power unit the 2017 Cadillac XTS also will have an automatic off and on high beam which shuts off when an oncoming vehicle is within sight. The 2017 Cadillac XTS also will feature a new automatic Parking System that will park your car automatically for you, first the system finds a place to Park via navigation tools and sensors built in before taking over the steering of the vehicle while the driver must only control the brakes and gas, pretty neat huh? Most people probably have never been exposed to this kind of technology, this type of bonus feature is hardly necessary but nice to have if you can afford such luxuries. Each and every version of the 2017 XTS Cadillac models with FWD will also be equipped with a hatch, multimedia system perfect for passengers in the rear seats which will have two monitors for entertainment as well as power steering that makes driving easier and more comfortable.
2017 Cadillac XTS – Engine Options
Of the XTS’ engine specs the new 2017 will have 3.6 liter engine capable of 410 horsepower and a torque of 369 that is evidence of the power that the car maker has instilled into the new model with its proposed automatic transmission that is sure to run smoothly and quietly like any and all Cadillac models. Further spec details have yet to be announced by the auto maker but the fact that the Cadillac CTS sedan has the same engine with an 8 speed transmission is able to accelerate to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds, pretty impressive. The second engine will also have a capacity of 3.6 liters, with 305 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque.
