Cadillac XTS Sedan History


Although it is a brief history, the Cadillac XTS sedan has already made quite an impact on the US market. Sales have been impressive since the XTS first arrived in June of 2012 and continue to rise, as the luxury sedan wows onlookers and attracts buyers.


The Cadillac XTS sedan is based on an enlarged version of GM’s Epsilon II platform, and was created to replace both the Cadillac STS and DTS. The XTS fits right in between the two, as it is larger than the STS and smaller than the DTS. Production began on the Cadillac XTS in May of 2012 at GM’s Oshawa Assembly Plant in Oshawa, Ontario.


In its short run on the market, the Cadillac XTS sedan has already garnered some high praise.
