    Will next years XTS have as manny interior options as the ATS?

    This may have already been answered but it really bothers me.the ATS.has.so many options some of which are just plain sexy like the red seats with carbon fiber, the Carmel interior (my favorite) and that silver seat with different.color dash one is awesome, if these were.offered in.xts Idk if I would find ATS just as intering as the XTS. But would it bet smart to wait till next year xts?

    Well the ats and xts are two different cars the ats is sporty and for younger people who like carbon fiber and colorful interiors while the xts is a buisnessman car. Maybe if the ats sells and has positive feedback on the interior they might use some interior options from the ats

    Forget the interior, when will the XTS get an optional engine? Bringing out a car in this class with just a 304HP naturally aspirated 6 is a joke.

    I think red seats would sell in the XTS, too, but it won't happen unless the caramel ones sell well.Hopefully, the 2014s will offer the 3.0Turbo engine, but the current one is 6.5 sec 0-60 (FWD, Car & Driver), which ain't bad. It could be geared for economy, so it feels lazy 'til you step on it.

    Although the Red Leather seats in the ATS are gorgeous, and they would look great in an XTS, too--it is my guess they will not be offered in the XTS due to added costs with more interior selections. My recommendation to Cadillac would be to offer exclusive colors of leather, such as the Red combo of the ATS, in the XTS "Platinum" editions and add to the cost and exclusivity of the XTS "Platinum" series. This is what Mercedes does with its "Designo" editions--the exclusive colors are more costly on those models.

    Interesting, so the XTS is faster than the DTS which has 0-60 of 6.9 secs. As I thought, it may be a 6, but it is a more powerful 6 than the old n*star 8.

    The Audi A6 and A8 have standard engines that are right around 300HP. Why can't caddy? The A6 doesn't have any options for more power.

    Yea, as in, in the ballpark of 300, or around there. As I wasn't sure the exact numbers on the detuned 3.0T in the A6
