Cadillac XTS in the Flesh and on the Move

The big news for Cadillac today was the presentation of the all-new XTS full-size luxury sedan, and we've got some fresh pictures as well as two new videos including one that shows the car on the road (admittedly, not in the best quality) to share with you.
There's been some confusion about which segment the XTS belongs to since it will replace two models in Cadillac's range, the rear-/all-wheel drive STS and the front-wheel drive only DTS.
While the new XTS is Cadillac's largest sedan and as such, should be the brand's flagship saloon model, it does not target the likes of the BMW 7 Series nor the Mercedes S-Class.
Instead, it is sized between the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and S-Class type of models, and will be likely priced much lower than either of those two cars. In other words, the same mix-up caused by the current CTS, which slots between the BMW 3- and 5-Series models.
You can read more about the XTS in our detailed post here, but as a reminder, the new Cadillac will be offered only with a 300HP 3.6-liter V6 engine matched to a 6sp automatic transmission, and the option of either front- or all-wheel drive.
