History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Automotive Industries page on 2 October 2017, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Cadillac XTS (X-Series Touring Sedan) is a full-size luxury sedan from Cadillac. It is based on an enlarged version of the Epsilon II platform. The XTS began production in May 2012 at the Oshawa Assembly Plant and launched in June. The XTS is available with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

For the Chinese market, the Cadillac XTS is being assembled by Shanghai GM. Production began in February 2013. In addition to the LFX 3.6 V6, Cadillac XTS also comes with an LTG 2.0 turbo engine in the Chinese market. In the Chinese market, the Cadillac XTS with an LFX 3.6 V6 engine is called XTS 36S, and the version with LTG 2.0 turbo engine is called XTS 2.0T.

The Cadillac XTS Sedan is currently available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, and the Middle East (except Israel) in LHD only.

The Epsilon II-platform is used for the XTS, which is shared with the Chevrolet Impala and the Buick LaCrosse. With the optional twin-turbocharged engine only available in the V-Sport, it has an estimated 0 to 60 miles per hour (0 to 97 km/h) time of 6.7 seconds. The XTS is one of two large sedans currently offered by Cadillac (the other is the CT6), and rivals the Lincoln Continental in size and price. The XTS is manufactured in Oshawa, Ontario (Oshawa Car Assembly) and in Shanghai, China (Shanghai GM).

The XTS is available with two engines, a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbo for China only, and a 3.6-liter with 304 hp (227 kW) and 264 lb·ft (358 N·m), with available twin-turbocharging on the XTS V-Sport providing 410 hp (306 kW) and 369 lb·ft (500 N·m) together with cylinder deactivation. The XTS is available in both front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive (standard on V-Sport vehicles) which includes a limited slip differential and torque vectoring.
