You can now attack the 2013 Cadillac XTS (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac) configurator with tame abandon. Why tame? Because there are hardly any options; understandable for a temporary flagship (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/10/more-details-emerge-about-new-rwd-cadillac-flagship/) - just about everything is standard or included in a trim package.

The proceedings begin at $44,995 (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/04/05/2013-cadillac-xts-priced-from-44-995/) (plus $920 for destination) for the front-wheel drive XTS Standard, rising in increments of about $5,000 through three additional trims: Luxury, which adds ornamentation like dual stainless exhaust tips, LED spotlights and light pipes (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/02/29/cadillac-choreographs-light-show-for-approaching-its-2013-xts/), and more seat functions; Premium, which upgrades the CUE system (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/11/09/hands-on-with-cadillac-cue/) to a 14-speaker Bose system and adds the 12.3-inch reconfigurable dash cluster, plus tri-zone climate control; and Platinum, which swaps for 20-inch wheels and installs power and manual rear shades. Step over to the all-wheel drive XTS and the bar moves up to $51,835 and begins at Luxury, moving through Premium to top out at $61,305 for the AWD Platinum.

There are five colors from which to choose, and on all but a few models there are just two cost options that aren't already checked: the $75 engine block heater and the $350 compact spare tire. On the Luxury trim you can add the $1,450 UltraView power sunroof and $795 upgraded CUE system, on the Premium you can add the $250 power rear sunshade. There is nothing else for your fancy to do.

The only shocker we found were interior options: the trims below Platinum get four color options, including a couple of contrasting two-tones like the beautiful caramel and jet black (inset). The Platinum trim only gets two interior color choices, caramel not one of them. Checking all two boxes on the Platinum leaves you with a heady $62,725 for the lot. We'd advise you not to take our word for it, though, and get over to the configurator and start virtually outfitting one for yourself.Cadillac XTS configurator ready for your own personal livery (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/25/cadillac-xts-configurator-ready-for-your-own-personal-livery/) originally appeared on Autoblog (http://www.autoblog.com) on Fri, 25 May 2012 11:30:00 EST.

I saw the XTS today...Nice looking but that CUE system seems like a lot of over engineering that will be trouble down the road..I keep my cars forever..Im currently driving a 99 DeVille. I also dont like the switch to a V6. I think Im gonna pass on the STX. I cant understand all the electronic garbage on these cars today. Its all just trouble waiting to happen!
