2015 Cadillac XTS – Elegance Defined
The Cadillac XTS comes with a bunch of high-tech features for its 2015 model including, 4G LTE and WiFi connectivity, front power seats (with ventilation, massage and heat), lane departure system and plenty others.
With the arrival of 2015, the XTS completes its three years in the market, and since Cadillac hasn’t come up with the latest CT6, the 2015 XTS is nothing less than a flagship vehicle for the company. And off course, there is a reason why it is considered one. The vehicle comes with tons of standard features, a soothing ride, and plenty of space for the passengers. Although, the XTS may not stand out when compared with the flagships models released in Japan and Europe, however, the kind of comfort and looks it possesses, there is absolutely no doubt that the vehicle will get your attention.
Last year’s XTS Vsport was an impressive addition to the lineup, and the vehicle was famous for its powerful turbocharged V6 that produced 410 HP. However, the 2015 Cadillac XTS is famous for the amount of room it offers to the passengers, particularly for the ones in the back seat. As far as the car trunk is concerned, well, all we can say is it is big! Quite frankly you won’t find any trunks like that in other vehicles.
Talking about the competitors, the one that stands the closest to the XTS is the 2015 Chrysler 300 which comes with RWD as standard and engine options including, V6 and V8
Let’s pop the hood and see what is inside the latest 2015 Cadillac XTS. The vehicle comes with 3.6-L V6 mated with front-wheel-drive. The engine can produce up to 304 HP and 264 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission with the vehicle is a six-speed automatic, with paddle shifters. The option of all-wheel-drive is also available for the buyers. The XTS is capable of going up to 60 mph from 0 in less than 7.5 seconds. These figures are pretty similar to its competitors, which are available in the market for more or less the same price. The fuel-economy estimates according to EPA are 18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway when driving on front wheels, while an all-wheel-drive returns 17 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
For more power, you can go for Vsport Platinum and Vsport Premium trims that come a 3.6-l turbocharged V6 engine that can produce up to 410 horsepower and the torque of 369 lb-ft. The V6 offer six-speed-automatic and all-wheel-drive as standard. XTS Vsport can hit 60 mph mark from 0 in matter of 5.4 seconds. The fuel estimates according to EPA are16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
The XTS include some state of the art safety features including, traction control, airbags (front and rear seats) crash notification etc.
All in all, the 2015 Cadillac XTS is vehicle worth spending your money on and we can bet it won’t disappoint you.
