    Spotted four XTS today

    Driving my son to a class, and saw a pair of new XTS's, MI plates.

    On the way back, saw two more.

    Looked like couples in the car...nice day for a Sunday drive.

    Probably employee training. My dad is a salesman and was at the event where they show them to all the employees a few days ago.

    XTS is not my cup of tea, but Cadillac did need a replacement for the DTS/STS to satisfy that segment of Cadillac buyers. Looks like a good interim move on Cadillac's part while the new CTS is worked out and the rumored real RWD flagship Cadi is prepared.

    XTS is ok, but I would NEVER EVER drive a FWD car. I don't understand why Cadillac wants to establish themselves as a true performance/luxury brand would have ANY FWD vehicles in their lineup. Makes no sense to me at all. XTS and SRX should have both been RWD vehicles.

    That's just your opinion . Mine is that Cadillac exists to make money. The old SRX did not sell well. The new FWD SRX has been selling like hotcakes. Th XTS will sell to DTS buyers. Cadillac SHOULD try to retain those buyers because they pay for development of future V-series and other RWD cars. Having cars to fit a variety of lux buyers is not a bad thing.

    My old '97 Eldo ETC was a FWD car. I loved that thing, plus it was my first Caddy. I had all RWD cars up to that point & certainly didn't feel it was any lesser of a car because it was FWD. Besides, if I wanted to go fast & smoke the tires at the time, I took out the Z-28.

    A 454 Z28? That's a heck of a stroke in that DZ block.

    I agree with you, but you're not the target customer. For that segment, RWD or FWD truly doesn't matter. Those cars aren't going to be driven hard. The RWD flagship is coming in a few years. In the meantime, a hole needed to be filled in the product lineup.

    I've seen quite a few, and will probably go sit in the one that's down in the lobby......
