Big body Caddy (sort of) back again

I have to come to terms with the fact that I respect Cadillacs. Must be a boyhood thing I’ve latched onto all these years, but I really do. And this new XTS flagship looks set to add fuel to the fire. As far as size goes, it slots in somewhere between a BMW 5-Series and an Audi A8.

The XTS is powered by Caddy’s super-smooth 3.6L V-6 engine mated to an advanced Haldex all-wheel-drive system; with Magnetic Ride Control, rear air suspension, HiPer Strut front suspension and Brembo brakes as standard options.

The XTS is Caddy’s most technologically advanced production car ever, set to come with CUE (Cadillac User Experience), a highly customizable user interface. It features a few innovative functions, such as capacitive-touch control with proximity sensing, gesture and natural voice recognition.

If the interior of the Escalade is anything to judge by, then you know the quality of the materials used throughout the XTS will be high grade. The car is expected to enter production in spring, 2012.
