I wish you luck @richardbbarger. Up until a week before the XTS was shown at the LA Auto Show all of the literature described a hybrid gas and plug in option. Then, possibly related or not, there were the Volt fires and suddenly no hybrid option. I very much wanted that option (it would have been ideal for short trips around town) and in fact had contacted GM very early on to get on the list for it. Though I think there is a better chance of the twin turbo arriving in a future XTS than the hybrid, I am not in the slightest disappointed with my XTS and its current (and only) engine configuration. It handles beautifully and has plenty of power. It is a sedan, IMHO, and not a sports car nor intended to be driven as one.
