    Post Cadillac News: Cadillac to show XTS town car at Vegas LCT show [w/poll]

    Filed under: Sedan, Cadillac, Misc. Auto Shows, Specialty, Luxury


    Town Car may be a nameplate still associated with Lincoln, but as any New Yorker will tell you, it's also a class of car and its application: large domestic luxury sedans used as chartered taxi cabs preferred by executives and highly valued professionals to get from one meeting to the next through Manhattan's notorious traffic. It's a market Lincoln itself is keen to retain, but with the demise of the Town Car as a model, it's pitching the MKT crossover for the application. Cadillac, however, is going with the XTS.

    The top-end GM marque's new flagship sedan will be presented on February 13 at the upcoming International LCT (Limousine, Charter and Tour) Show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. There, Cadillac will showcase the XTS W20 Livery Sedan Package, paving the way for extended-wheelbase and even sedan chassis to be made available sometime later this year.

    So will Cadillac finally be able to leapfrog past longtime rival Lincoln in this vital market? Will the XTS prove the ultimate successor to the Town Car? Follow the jump for the full press release and cast your vote in the poll below.

    Maybe this can be a viable alternative. I certainly won't be getting an MKT, that's for sure...

    i was trying to say that here but it seemed like nobody was listening to what i was saying

    i think the XTS-L (especially just the 5-8 inch stretch W30 versios) will be exactly what you're looking for

    at least that's what I would be looking for if I was in the livery business

    It still needs to have useable space. Legroom is great, but I don't know if it will help if its too narrow...

    But I would like AWD, better fuel mileage, the magnaride w/ air springs AND CUE..

    Well ... I don't think it will be too narrow but we'll see about the width issue soon I guess

    It's defintely too narrow to fit 3 comfortably. But I'm more concerned about carry on bags such as backpacks and briefcases and where they'll go...

    It just looks too much like a Chevy to me. Would not buy.
