Cadillac Xts owners manuals
- The CUE infotainment system found in most 2013-2018 Cadillac cars has major design and installation defects resulting in bubbles, cracks, and an unresponsive interface.
- Parts supplier, Takata, produced defective, shrapnel-hurling airbag inflators that need to be recalled, affecting 34 million+ cars spread out across 24 brands, making it one of the biggest(and most dangerous) recalls in automotive history.
The Cadillac XTS (known as the X-Series Touring Sedan) is a full-size luxury sedan from Cadillac and based on an extended version of the Epsilon II platform. The XTS substituted the Cadillac STS and DTS and is slotted between DTS and STS models. The production began in May 2012 at the Oshawa Assembly factory and presented in June as a 2013 model. Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options are available for the XTS.
For the Chinese market, the Cadillac XTS is constructed by Shanghai GM, the production starting in February 2013. To this market, in addition to the LFX 3.6 V6, Cadillac XTS also comes with an LTG 2.0 turbo engine. Here, the Cadillac XTS with an LFX 3.6 V6 engine is named XTS 36S, and the version with LTG 2.0 turbo engine is called XTS 2.0T.
The Cadillac XTS is currently available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, and the Middle East.
The standard XTS comes equipped with a front-wheel drive and a 304-hp V-6 engine, while V-Sport models have a 410-hp twin-turbo V-6 engine with all-wheel drive, both paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The entry-level engine can be paired with an all-wheel-drive if wanted. The V-Sport model powertrain reached a 6.6-second zero-to-60-mph time in a front-drive model while the rest of the models needed 7.2 seconds to complete the same task.
