The year 2020 brings us the unexpected news from Cadillac. The new 2020 Cadillac XTS model will hit the market and stay here until 2020, when it may be replaced by an entirely new vehicle. Until then, the XTS will be known as the only car using the older Epsilon II platform. We are sure that the true fans know what we are talking about.
The new 2020 Cadillac XTS is a four-door sedan, being at the same time sophisticated and sporty. We can expect minimal bodywork changes. Maybe a new grille or the headlights, but the long body and overhangs probably will not change. Experts say that it resembles the CT6 model upfront, only the new model will be 2 inches shorter and it will have a shorter wheelbase. It will have a panoramic roof window and LED lights. We have also noticed that a sharp crease goes from the front fender out to the rear. It also has identical door mirrors and the recognizable Cadillac badge. This vehicle definitely offers a touch of luxury on the outside. The main design competitor is Chrysler 300.
When we talk about the interior of the new 2020 Cadillac XTS, you can definitely expect comfort and a touch of luxury here, too. We are looking forward to better-quality materials and more equipment. The dashboard will be slightly different. It will have the 8.0-inch touch screen with Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system. There will be enough space, even in the back, where the entertainment (probably DVD) will be offered to the back seat passengers. The front seats will be adjustable and probably have the optional heating, ventilation and massage. When it comes to tech features, we can expect Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Surround Sound audio system and many more. Safety features are once again on the highest level. The Driver Assist package will include front and rear automatic braking, safety seat alert, adaptive cruise control, blind zone alert, lane keep assist and others.
The current model comes with a 2.0-litre engine or with the larger 3.6-litre V6, but the engine of the new model will definitely be improved. Experts say that the new 2020 XTS will come with engines such as 3.6-litre V6 with 310 horsepower and 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 with 410 horsepower. The base engines are likely to come with eight-speed automatic-transmission instead of six. However, the turbocharged V6 may be the first front-wheel-drive that comes from GM to use their nine-speed automatic. Front and rear automatic braking will keep you safe at high speeds.
2020 Cadillac XTS Release Date and Price
The new 2020 Cadillac XTS will likely be released in 2017 and it should appear in the showrooms shortly after that. If the information is true, this will be the only Cadillac vehicle arriving this year. We can conclude that this model offers a revised look, better interior, and an improved engine. There has not been any detail on the price, but it will cost around $75,000. Although this model was not planned and expected, the Cadillac is keeping it on the market for its ‘traditional’ customers, as they say. For this price, we would consider also new Lincoln Continental.
