2018 Cadillac XTS Coming to the Middle East

  • Latest model set to arrive in the Middle East in Q4 2017
  • XTS Platinum V-Sport will also be available in the region
  • Improved chassis for even greater ride comfort
  • Freshened front and rear appearance

The Cadillac XTS is a spacious and comfortable sedan with confident handling and performance. For 2018, the XTS receives technical, chassis and appearance changes to heighten the appeal of this elegant sedan.

Also available is the XTS Platinum V-Sport, which takes performance to a higher level, driven by an exclusive twin-turbo engine and all-wheel drive. Both editions of the new Cadillac XTS are set to arrive in the Middle East by Q4 2017.

New exterior styling features freshened front and rear fascias. The appearance change includes new fenders, front and rear fascias, grille, and the addition of LED headlights and taillamp in keeping with today’s portfolio.

The updated chassis has revised tire designs for both 19” and 20” tires—improving ride comfort while reducing outside noise for a quieter more comfortable cabin.

When it comes to trunk space, the XTS is in a league of its own, with 18 cubic feet (509 L), exceeding some midsize and full-size competitors — that’s more than the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The cargo advantage means room for five or more suitcases.

New interior decor is available across much of the XTS line. There is a revised Jet Black with Shale-accented environment available for XTS Luxury models. The XTS Platinum models include new Jet Black and Maple Sugar with Jet Black accents.

Platinum models feature a leather-wrapped interior with microfiber suede headliner, as well as premium wood trim on the steering wheel, console, center stack, instrument panel and door panels.

Seating trim offers full-leather seating on Kona, or semi-aniline full leather seating surfaces on Platinum models, both with perforated detailing. Heated and ventilated seats are also offered. The 2018 model includes the redesigned updates to the seat foam geometry, wire frame structure, heat pads for the heated seats and 40” of rear legroom for added passenger comfort. Together, the changes elevate the riding experience for the driver and passengers.

The Cadillac twin-turbo 3.6L V-6 headlines the XTS’ powertrain lineup and is standard on the V-Sport model, delivering SAE-certified 410 horsepower (306 kW) and 500 Nm of torque, making it one of the most power-dense six-cylinder engines in the segment. The XTS’ standard 3.6L V-6 is rated at 304 horsepower (227 kW) and 355 Nm of torque. Lightweight features help reduce overall weight for greater efficiency and a more favorable front-to-rear weight balance.

The engines are matched with six-speed automatic transmissions and tap-shift control.

Cadillac provides available advanced safety based on its “control-and-alert” strategy, employing advanced technologies — including radar, camera and ultrasonic sensors — to help prevent crashes. The safety features bolster driver vision and awareness of road hazards and can even help drivers avert potential crashes. In certain situations, Cadillac’s advanced crash-avoidance systems, such as automatic braking, can automatically apply braking in response to potential hazards.

The 2018 Cadillac XTS luxury sedan is elevated with the new generation of design and technology. XTS Platinum shown here in the all-new Maple Sugar interior environment with Jet Black accents and Nutella Lineate with high gloss Ebony Lineate wood trim.
