2018 Cadillac XTS Spied on Testing. Despite the believed plan to retire the model in 2019, the new 2018 Cadillac XTS prototype has been caught on the road for testing. The prototype still wears camouflage on the front and rear ends, but we should be able to spot one or two hints from this car. Here is a little detail on the spied prototype.
2018 Cadillac XTS Specifications
Features, Exterior, and Interior
The prototype covers the front and rear ends of 2018 Cadillac XTS which indicate a serious change in the elements. Many of the updates look subtle, and they are possibly updated from the CT6 model. A little exposed from the almost-see-through camouflage, the front grille seems to feature horizontal and simple design on it.
The headlights get LED vertical strips from the headlights to the lower front end. The rear end is harder to estimate. The dual rectangular exhaust pipes are seen on this prototype along with the vertical taillights. The other parts of the rear end are well covered so we can assume it carries serious update on it.
Perhaps, the trunk lid and bumper get revised design. Furthermore, we should expect Cadillac to apply the edgier design on this full-size luxury sedan to make a real fresh look on the car. Moving forward, it seems like the cabin also features a sensor which appears to be a part of driver assistance system.
The interior was not seen though on this prototype, yet we should expect updates on the material as it typically appears on refresh version. CUE infotainment system should be included as well with the sensor should indicate update on the safety features.

Powertrain, Engine — 2018 Cadillac XTS
This new XTS car powertrain detail is unknown at this point. The same engine that exists in current version can make another appearance on this refresh version as well. However, it should be especially relevant that the performance figures of the engine will be improved. We will see more on this later.
2018 Cadillac XTS Price and Release Date
Pricing is unknown at this point, but we should know soon. This luxury sedan has been scheduled for a debut in early 2017. It will be launched as 2018 model year with official sale should start soon after the debut.
It looks like the significant raise on sale numbers on this current model version motivates the company to make the refresh version. We should not expect too drastic change, but it should be fine to hope for improvement. Stay tuned to get the next 2018 Cadillac XTS update. For the leaked picture, you can visit Motor1.com.
