What You Will Like

Starting at around $45,000, the XTS competes with midsized luxury sedans from European manufacturers such as BMW, Audi and Mercedes. The XTS offers more interior room and cargo space, however. The availability of a 3.6L, 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.

Loading Comparison...


The 2019 Cadillac XTS is a large sedan whose modern interpretation doesn’t erase its throwback feel. Known for its fabulous ride, it has the vibe of a GM version of the Lincoln Town Car, and is popular with limousine services. It can be stretched, and often is. We don’t know if this is outside the XTS box, or part of it, but it’s even available with armor plating. Or as a hearse.

The base engine is a strong and smooth 3.6-liter V-6 making 304 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque, using a 6-speed automatic transmission. But there is also an XTS V-Sport model to erase the notion of an old-man cruiser; it uses a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6 making 410 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, also mated to a 6-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is standard in the V-Sport, which might almost be considered a sport sedan.

In the other XTS models, front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive available.

Comprehensive crash-avoidance technology is available, but not much is standard. Still, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the XTS five stars overall. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the top Good ratings in each category, though the tricky small-overlap test has not yet been performed.

For a car this big, the fuel economy is excellent, EPA-rated at 18/28 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined with front-wheel drive, and 17/26/20 mpg with all-wheel drive. And that’s on regular fuel. The V-Sport with its extra horsepower brings the mileage down to 16/23 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined.

The Cadillac XTS was freshened in 2018 with a new grille and LED headlamps, new fenders, and new front and rear fascia, including bumpers. There were also suspension changes to improve the ride, and increased sound insulation to make the cabin even more quiet. There were upgrades to quicken the response of Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system, along with updated graphics, personalized profiles, and smartphone-like navigation.

With all of these improvements, the 2019 model, now in the fifth year of its generation, gets no more changes.


There are four models of XTS, plus another two models of V-Sport. There’s the base XTS, plus Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum; and V-Sport Premium Luxury and Platinum.

Standard equipment on the 2019 Cadillac XTS ($46,895) includes the 304-horsepower V-6, front-wheel drive, Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo front brakes, CUE infotainment, eight-speaker Bose audio, power front seats, leather seating surfaces, OnStar connectivity with a 4G LTE, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

XTS Luxury ($50,895) includes navigation, auto-dimming outside mirrors, automatic parking assist, heated front/rear seats, cooled front seats, and a heated steering wheel. All-wheel drive ($2,000) is available for all models except the base.

XTS Premium Luxury ($57,295) comes with a head-up display, 12.3-inch configurable screen, tri-zone automatic climate control, 14-speaker Bose surround-sound, and adaptive forward lighting. The standard Driver Awareness Package includes forward collision and lane-departure warnings, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitors, and a surround-view camera system.

XTS AWD V-Sport Premium Luxury has the 410-horsepower twin-turbo V-6, 20-inch wheels, and all-wheel drive. XTS Platinum ($68,395) gets semi-aniline leather upholstery, 20-inch alloy wheels, more lavish interior trim, and front-wheel drive.

XTS AWD V-Sport Platinum ($72,995) gets all-wheel drive.

A Driver Awareness Package, including blind-spot monitors and low-speed automatic emergency braking, is standard on upper models and available on the Luxury model. Automatic full-speed emergency braking is available in Platinum and Premium Luxury, bundled with adaptive cruise control in a Driver Assist Package.


The freshening in 2018 maintained the XTS’s upscale conservative looks, while heightening its appeal. The horizontal chrome in the grille, especially, is cleaner. The XTS is not an exuberant car, but neither is it stodgy like it might have been in the past. Its curves and angles are blended harmoniously, especially in the fenders, which do a decent job of softening the sedan’s abundant dimensions.


Without saying that the XTS is not a driver’s car, we’re inclined to say that the cabin is best judged from the back seat. There, three adults have vast room to relax in luxury, with lovely upholstery and details. Big rear doors make it easy to climb in and out. Even six-footers have plenty of headroom.

That praised, the front passengers also get plenty of space. The seats are wide and flat, with almost endless power adjustment. The bolstering is a bit absent, as the XTS is not made for cornering, but there’s enough support for long hours of comfort. The seating position is a bit higher than average, so visibility out the windshield is ample.

The cabin materials and finishes are luxurious, with generous leather even in the base model. In the Platinum model, the surroundings reach beyond plush, not only with superior leather, but also glorious glossy wood.

The biggest cabin flaw, maybe the only one, is the switchgear. Traditional buttons are hard to find on the dashboard that is dominated by the 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen. Most of the functions are controlled by capacitive switches that can be frustrating.

Driving Impressions

The XTS performs well at three important things: engine, transmission, and ride. The base V-6 is strong, smooth and responsive, about to accelerate from zero to sixty in a respectable 6.8 seconds; but when the car is loaded with people and gear, it feels maxed out. The twin-turbo V-6 in the V-Sport is an awesome upgrade, cutting that time down to just over 5 seconds. The 6-speed automatic with both engines is well-programmed, well-behaved, and satisfying at higher speeds, but doesn’t perform so well at lower speeds.

The standard ride is magnificent. So what does that leave us to say about the available Magnetic Ride Control, with a rear air suspension? It’s even smoother than magnificent.

The XTS isn’t intended for serious cornering, so we don’t need to comment on its limitations. We can say, however, that it feels lighter than its actual weight of about two tons. Except maybe under braking. Standard Brembo front brakes get it stopped, but with some nosedive.

The V-Sport model raises the XTS game in the twisties, enough to satisfy some buyers who might want their big Cadillac sedan to be more taut. With a firmer suspension, the V-Sport feels more agile, and might even come close to qualifying as a sport sedan. Its standard all-wheel drive helps a lot.


If a comfortable ride is the most important selling point with a sedan like this, the Cadillac XTS comes out a winner. Add in a comfortable, spacious and luxurious cabin; a smooth and reasonably quick engine; and a transmission that’s easy to live with. The XTS is good at all of these things, in the base model–plus great fuel mileage on regular gas. The engine can run out of steam if the car is fully loaded, and we wish the transmission were as smooth at low speeds as it is at high speeds. If you want more sport than this, there’s the twin-turbo V-Sport. High-tech automatic safety features are available to drive the price up.

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.
