What You Will Like

Starting at around $45,000, the XTS competes with midsized luxury sedans from European manufacturers like BMW, Audi, and Mercedes. The XTS offers more interior room and cargo space, however, and the availability of a 410-horsepower turbocharged V6 means the XTS holds its own when it comes to performance. Available all-wheel-drive increases practicality and fits well with the impressive array of technologies available on the XTS.

What's New For 2017

The XTS comes back for 2017 with minor changes. Among them are three new exterior colors -- Phantom Gray Metallic, Deep Amethyst Metallic, and Bronze Dune Metallic. Inside, the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) control module has been updated to allow the addition of apps such as Pandora, iHeart Radio and the Weather Channel. A "Teen Driver" configuration encourages safe driving by limiting certain features and preventing various safety features from being turned off. It also provides reports on driving habits.


  • Basic Warranty: 6 Years / 100,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 6 Years / 70,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 6 Years / 70,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Compare the 2017 Cadillac XTS

Loading Comparison...


The Cadillac XTS is the former flagship, that title now being bestowed upon the uber-Cadillac CT6 introduced for 2016.

The Cadillac XTS remains handsome and well-mannered, even the V-Sport model, with its 410-horsepower twin-turbo V6 with all-wheel drive. This is the only XTS we’d buy. The others models work best in fleet service.

The XTS is a five-seat sedan that’s almost the size of a short-wheelbase BMW 7 Series or Audi S8. Rivals include the Lincoln Continental, Mercedes E-Class and Audi A6. The XTS beats them in features and interior space.

The athletic XTS has a softly arched roofline and a smooth profile. It uses a smooth and predictable 3.6-liter V6 making 305 horsepower that gets an EPA-rated 22 Combined city and highway miles per gallon with front-wheel drive and its 6-speed automatic.

The XTS gets very good ratings in crash testing, all 5s with a 4 in rollover. It hasn’t done the small-overlap test yet, the simulated hitting of a telephone pole or the corner of something; that’s the one most cars have been failing.


Cadillac XTS ($45,295) is available in Luxury ($49,295), Premium ($55,795), and Platinum ($64,595) trim levels; Luxury and Premium are available with all-wheel drive ($2000). Cadillac XTS V-Sport comes in Premium Luxury ($63,770) and Platinum ($72,320) versions. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Safety features include rearview camera and optional forward-collision warnings, lane-departure warnings, blind-spot monitors, surround-view cameras, adaptive cruise control with automatic emergency braking, and Safety Alert Seat, which vibrates when the car thinks you need to be warned about something. Automatic Parking Assist can steer the car into a parking space for you.


The Cadillac design theme called Art & Science has softened over its 15 years, evolving into the lovely lines of the XTS. Taut panels and curved surfaces are balanced to embrace the bulk, without showing it. It is distinctly a Cadillac, in the universe of softly sculpted luxury sedans. It faintly resembles a Buick LaCrosse and Chevy Impala, mostly in the profile and softly arched roofline.


The design is pared down inside, the cabin is wonderfully clubby. The instrument panel and trim are simple, the textures smartly chosen, the tones tasteful, the materials opulent, at least some of them. We like the way the beveled metallic trim snuggles wood and leather. It’s a feat of fit and finish.

The XTS is more than spacious, headroom and legroom everywhere. The front seats are widely adjustable and very good, but the driver’s seat could use a bit more support, although we’ve spent hours there without complaint. High mounting of the front seats gives excellent visibility.

The back seat is about perfect, maybe because it has to be, if it’s going to be much of an airport limo. The headliner is carved for more headroom.

Active noise cancellation keeps the cabin so quiet you can’t hear the engine.

The car is ruled by CUE, the Cadillac User Experience system, no buttons, no gauges (at least not real ones), all 8.0-inch touchscreen. Fully capacitive, responds to gestures, like a tablet computer. It’s good at voice command and touch-and-swipe toggling between features, although it’s too easy to touch/swipe the wrong thing. Swipe controls don’t always inspire confidence or deliver the desired execution. The CUE controls are fussy and the system lags too much.

Driving Impressions

The 3.6-liter V6 is perfectly serviceable. It starts very smoothly and idles quietly. It accelerates to sixty in a reasonably quick 6.8 seconds and keeps on going to 136 miles per hour before being limited electronically. But with less torque than some rivals, it can feel labored when pulling away from a stoplight with five occupants.

The V-Sport has deep thrust, with its twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 making 410 hp and 369 pound-feet of torque, available over an impressive range from 1900 rpm to 5600 rpm.

The XTS has taut dynamics with an absorbent ride that’s relatively firm. It’s well composed and well isolated, riding on magnetic dampers and air springs.

The steering response is exceptionally crisp, almost nimble. With the deft damping of MagneRide, the magnetic shocks, it doesn’t feel like it weighs two tons. It loads and unloads in corners with confidence, stays flat, rarely flustered. Cornering was the same with the 19-inch and 20-inch wheels.

The 6-speed automatic is smooth and predictable, but rivals have eight speeds. The standard Brembo brakes are so strong they dive the nose of the XTS, on front dampers just soft enough to allow a comfortable ride.


The XTS V-Sport is a worthy Cadillac hot rod for our time. It’s beautiful in black, or titanium. Its twin-turbocharged V6 makes 410 horsepower. The V8 is dead, long live the V8. As for the Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum XTS models, we think they deserve a better fate than fleet. The 3.6-liter V6 is a sweet smooth motor.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
