2018 Cadillac XTS Redesign, Refresh, Changes

In looking for the new 2018 Cadillac XTS, it should be remembered that for the last couple of years, General Motors has not brought out any Cadillac XTSs. Recently, however, there has been sightings of something new on-the-streets of Michigan. It may have been disguised a bit, both in the front and at the rear, but all who saw it agree that this is the first glimpse of a new Cadillac XTS. After a little more spying and investigative photography, it is confirmed that this will, in fact, be the new, refresh 2018 Cadillac XTS.

At first, anyone will recognize the similarities to the 2016 Cadillac CT6, especially in the vertical LED lighting. Also, under the camouflage, the simple horizontal grille appeared. At the back, it seemed like there were new exhaust outlets fitted. It is possible that there are some new designs of the front and rear bumpers, probably similar to the last model.

2018 Cadillac XTS – Redesign Appearance

The new Cadillac is scheduled to make its official appearance in the second half of 2018, although some say it might be a little earlier than that. It will be seen for the first time this year, and General Motors will also rely on intensive marketing and advertising stratagems for the rest of the year. The price of the-2018 Cadillac XTS will depend on the model you choose, and the interior trim off that model. Different models will offer different advantages, like a different drive or even engine.

Perhaps a Sensor in the Grille

The camouflage on the new model did not allow anyone to see very much, but there seemed to be some type of sensor set into the grille, which may be a form of advanced driving assistance.

There did not seem to be any major changes in the bumpers and headlights. The color of the new model was also hidden.

The spying was not able to find out much about the interior of the 2018 Cadillac XTS, but there will probably be all the latest types of equipment, including push-button start, access with no key, NavTraffic Avoid, Wireless and adjustable leather-covered seats, perhaps also with a massage option. There may be a sunroof, and indeed all the lower priced models will have everything available that the top of the line models has.

2018 Cadillac XTS – Most Information Still Speculation

The present model, for instance, offers a choice of two engine options, & AWD and FWD. This will always play a part in the price you will have to pay. There is actually very little verified information on the 2018-Cadillac XTS as yet. It is expected that the same 3.6-liter V6 VVT engine with 304 hp & 264 lb-ft of torque for the base model, like the current model. All the 2018 models will have a six-speed-automatic transmission.

All in all, speculation aside, it looks as if there will not be many changes in the 2018 Cadillac XTS from the current model.

2018 Cadillac XTS – Price

Probably prices will be similar, as the 2018 Cadillac will not be a completely new type of car. Based on the current model, prices will start at about $47,500 and go up to about $75,000 for the Sports edition.
