2018 Cadillac XTS: New front and rear design, still top heavy body

The 2018 model year Cadillac XTS facelift has new LED headlamp and taillamp designs, bumpers, grille, tires, and infotainment system.

The redesigned Cadillac XTS’ bumpers actually make the car 1.1 inches (28mm) shorter overall. The XTS has standard 19-inch wheels, and optional 20-inch wheels, with quieter tires.

The cabin has revised trim, and the latest and more easy to use CUE infotainment system.

Engines are unchanged, with the 3.6-liter V6 with 304hp (227kW) and 264 lb-ft (358Nm) standard, and a 3.6-liter twin turbo V6 with 410hp (306kW) and 369 lb-ft (500Nm) in the V-Sport model.

The only transmission is a 6-speed auto. FWD is standard, and AWD is optional.
