November 21st, 2014 | Comments Closed | Cadillac

The 2015 Cadillac XTS is Cadillac’s flagship sedan. Its sized and priced to compete in the heart of the luxury market against imported sedans like the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Lexus GS, Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The 2015 Cadillac XTS seats five and is available with front- or four-wheel drive. OnStar communication system adds 4G LTE internet connectivity with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. A test data for three months / 3-gigabyte is included.

2015 Cadillac XTS Platinum models receive a revised armrest with radio controls and rear-seat parasol. Some other features include power folding side mirrors; lane departure prevention and for the Platinum models, front seats with 22-way power adjustable seats with heating, seat ventilation and massage function. The 2015 Cadillac XTS makes everything a big luxury sedan should. The 2015 Cadillac XTS is over ATS and CTS sport sedan of the luxury brand in size, but is aimed at a completely different type of buyer-one who may be less concerned with relentless efficiency and more in tune with uncompromising comfort. And, if you’re mixing that comfort with a healthy dose of modern technology and a fast Vsport-go model available, the XTS might be a good choice for you.

The 2015 Cadillac XTS is directed to the category of “luxury”, and shares many of the inner workings Chevrolet Impala and Buick LaCrosse. With this in mind, the 2015 Cadillac XTS represents the softer side of Cadillac, leaving the ATS and CTS sedans to meet the rear-wheel-drive enthusiasts fantasies. Inside Out is probably the way that Cadillac wants you to see the XTS, as the instrument panel and interior trim GM’s latest exhibit, a look swoopier softer detail, and plenty of smooth contour inside, contrasting with beveled, well equipped metal trims.

2015 Cadillac XTS Interior

The exterior of the 2015 Cadillac XTS is not as memorable as the gently contoured cabin, but both are very attractive. One element of the set of cutting-edge features of the 2015 Cadillac XTS is remarkable in itself, from the point of view of design. In the center of the instrument panel sits XTS eight inch capacitive touchscreen quite similar to what is used on iPads and other tablets screen. It is part of the Cadillac User Experience (CUE), which is standard and the look is clean, eliminating many physical buttons. No actual indicators, either in many XTS only simulated in a separate display driver front reconfigurable.

2015 Cadillac XTS Engine

The 2015 Cadillac XTS can not directly address the performance part of the luxury market, that does not necessarily mean it is a slouch. And with the introduction of a V-6 twin-turbocharged Vsport edition last year, the XTS certainly not disappoint those who just want a little extra acceleration. Even for a larger sedan, the 2015 Cadillac XTS is a bit on the heavy side, tend to feel that from the beginning, that this is the only time that the base V-6 seems a little work. When braking hard. A touch of the throttle aggressive also tends to make the base engine is perkier than they feel, so this one out on a test drive by. There are two wheel sizes and the differences between them, from behind the wheel, it really is minimal.

The 304-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 which is under the hood of 2015 Cadillac XTS is very soft; starts with barely a shudder and deposited on a glassy idle. No churn out torque at low rpm as some rivals V-6 engine, but the delivery is smooth and predictable through the automatic gearbox six-speed, front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. And with 0-60 mph time of 6.8 seconds and a (limited) top speed of 136 mph, which is pretty fast.

2015 Cadillac XTS Safety

One of the safest vehicles you can buy the 2015 Cadillac XTS also comes with a number of choices of security technology. The 2015 Cadillac XTS has not yet been rated by the agencies that car crash tests, but not many changes in the last year’s model, we expect it to remain one of the safest luxury car money can buy.

With the bundled driver awareness, the Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and a mirrored LED display, you get a seat with safety alert vibrating on one side or both to help point out the potential dangers such as when turning on the lane marking, for example. And later this model year, with the availability of a Package Driver Assist, the 2015 Cadillac XTS will offer Adaptive Cruise Control, the Automatic Collision Preparation, and front and rear brake automatic features that can actually bring the car to a stop when moving at low speeds of 20 mph or less. At higher speeds, the 2015 Cadillac XTS function will also reduce the severity of the impact, starting to brake.
