Cadillac XTS production ends with FWD red sedan

Production of the Cadillac XTS sedan has ended at GM’s Oshawa, Ontario, factory, bringing down the curtain on the model favored by black car drivers.


The Cadillac Society has confirmed the North American XTS is no more, with the final sedan (a red FWD sedan) rolling off the line earlier this month.

The XTS continues to be made in Shanghai for the Chinese market, where large sedans remain popular.

Originally slated to end production in 2017, the life of the XTS was extended through until this year, and even received an update last year.

Based on the Chevrolet Impala, the XTS was available with in both FWD and AWD, with the latter model featuring a 3.6L twin-turbo V6. Stretched limo, hearse and armored versions of the sedan were also made.
