    I kinda think the Chinese SLS would have made a better XTS...

    Accidentally Revealed: 2012 Cadillac XTS

    Cadillac XTS: This is it!
    Jalopnik.com
    November 9, 2011
    By Matt Gardigree



    Here's the first image of the gorgeous new Cadillac XTS, a modern full-sized replacement for the outgoing DTS/STS twin bus-sized sedans. Behold, the Cadillac of luxo-barges...

    ...Cadillac confirms the image is of the real production model. Why did we need confirmation? We didn't really, because they accidentally published it in on their front page.

    I posted a duplicate. Can a mod delete it? The car looks great by the way!

    re: Introducing the 2012 Cadillac XTS

    Amazing that they'd put a computer generated image up on Cadillac.com instead of an actual photo of the car. Perhaps it's because they didn't want spy photographers to catch them photographing outside, but still.

    The headlights and grille will look better in a real picture of an actual car sitting in its environment.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    Standard of the world? LOL. Standard of small town middle America, maybe.

    Cadillac, I hope you're reading this:

    They promised us dream cars. We got glorified Buicks that look like SUVs from the front and Ford Tauruses from the side.


    The Germans are laughing. Mercedes-Benz is #1 in US luxury sales and it looks like that trend will continue.

    re: Introducing the 2012 Cadillac XTS

    That's it?? NO, JUST NO. Its a Hyundai Sonata with a Cadillac grill slapped on it.

    Immediately after looking at it for the first time, Eugene Levy's character in National Lampoon's Vacation popped into my head: "You think you hate it now, just wait'll you drive it!"

    After seeing some of the interior in the CUE video, I see why Cadillac put out the press release concerning the black car market...they already know that and the rental counter is the only place this abomination is going to sell.

    GM, did you learn nothing from Packard...pull the plug on Cadillac now. What with the SRX, and now this, its painfully obvious you have no intention of once again making Cadillac "The Standard of the World" and "The Car of Cars" or even "A Masterpiece from the Mastercraftsmen", so just put Cadillac out of its misery while it can still exit with a shred of dignity and its former glory.

    Yes!

    I would never drive the XTS, but hopefully it will sell and make Cadillac some money. Now start working on a nice big Ciel based car with a beastly V8 for God's sake.

    re: Introducing the 2012 Cadillac XTS

    I'm afraid these sentiments are going to be very popular with the Cadillac XTS. I've mentioned before that the car lights up really nicely at night - but during the day - this is a really mellow, drowsy looking automobile. This car is Camry boring from the side. The front fascia isn't anything special either - though I like the lower part. The rear is nice.

    The XTS is an amazing car on the inside but very underwhelming on the outside. Just the opposite of what the first generation Chrysler 300C was...
