The Cadillac XTS is a full-size luxury sedan from Cadillac. It is based on an enlarged version of the Epsilon II platform. The XTS replaces both the Cadillac STS and DTS, and is smaller than the DTS but larger than the STS. It began production in May 2012 at the Oshawa Assembly Plant and launched in June. The XTS is available with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.
For the Chinese market, the Cadillac XTS is being assembled by Shanghai GM. Production began in February 2013. In addition to the LFX 3.6 V6, Cadillac XTS also comes with an LTG 2.0 turbo engine in the Chinese market. In the Chinese market, the Cadillac XTS with an LFX 3.6 V6 engine is called XTS 36S, and the version with LTG 2.0 turbo engine is called XTS 2.0T. This vehicle may be partially marketed in Europe, though the only LWB car based on the Epsilon II platform sold in Europe was Saab 9-5 which ceased production in 2012.
As of November 2015, the Cadillac XTS Sedan is available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, and the Middle East (except Israel) in LHD only.
In the US, the XTS comes powered by a 3.6 liter V6 that generates 304 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 264 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. Gas mileage is rated at 17 miles per US gallon (14 L/100 km; 20 mpg-imp) in the city and 26 miles per US gallon (9.0 L/100 km; 31 mpg-imp) on the highway with all-wheel-drive and 28 miles per US gallon (8.4 L/100 km; 34 mpg-imp) without.

XTS Platinum concept
General Motors exhibited a concept sedan called the XTS Platinum at the 2010 North American International Auto Show after privately unveiling the vehicle to automotive journalists on August 11, 2009. The concept was all-wheel drive and was powered by a 3.6 L (220 cu in) V6 plug-in hybrid system estimated at 350 hp (260 kW). Its interior was based on hand-cut-and-sewn materials and uses Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) displays in place of traditional gauges and screens.
The Platinum version went on sale in 2013.
A long-wheelbase version XTS called the Cadillac XTS Limousine along with a Hearse version was announced in early 2012 and both went on sale later that year.
As of September 2014, the XTS Limousine and Hearse versions are only available in the United States and Canada.
