A Review of Innovation and Performance – Cadillac XTS

2013 Cadillac XTS at Les Stanford CadillacThe long standing King of American luxury automobiles is the Cadillac. The auto manufacturer has constantly redefined what it means to drive in style. This time they have done it again with the new Cadillac XTS.

Once you sit in the new XTS you will immediately notice its innovation, merging style and technology as if it were an art. The typical gauge display has been replaced with a 12.3 inch digital screen with multiple layouts. Driver’s have the ability to choose from four digital screen layouts, including a performance screen which brings up the tachometer and other performance data.

Another important tech feature is Cadillac’s CUE Infotainment Screen.  Nestled right in the center of the dash where the typical radio or entertainment system would be, you’ll find the CUE Infotainment System. Powered by leading technology and a multi touch display, the Infotainment System provides drivers with a navigation system, entertainment, plus traffic and weather info.

Once on the road the innovation doesn’t stop. The XTS comes with an air ride suspension and magnetic shocks, which have been said to be the fastest reacting shock absorbers in production.

To keep the performance feel, drivers can drop the XTS into manual shift mode and therefore use the paddle shifters. Once in manual mode, the shocks stiffen to the maximum amount.

While the XTS is a front wheel drive car, it does come with an All Wheel Drive option. All this added with the XTS driving smoothly and quietly, just as you would expect from Cadillac, makes this one of the best automobiles of 2013.
