    Platinum Price Increase?

    When they add the late arrival additions, in options like the braking functions, how much do people think the price will change? The distance cruise control system is about $2500 on other brands on it's own, plus Cadillac is adding front and rear braking as well, and some type collision alert..In the catalog, the options are listed as standard in the Platinum...Thanks...

    The Cadillac website says the platinum comes with "adaptive cruise control" and collision alert when you compare luxury vs premium vs platinum and click on the "interior" tab. Not sure if you're saying they're adding something else later? Go to cadillac's website, xts, build your own, compare the models, click on "all" or "safety" or "interior".

    the driver's assist package (which includes the adaptive cruise control) was recently added onto the web site (see "build your own") for deliveries after October. That package will be phased into production next month. I don't believe any cars built to date have that as yet. (correct me if I'm wrong)

    Mine has "Driver Awareness Package". I guess that's different from driver assist?

    The Automatic Collision Preparation feature is part of Driver Assist Package which is standard on the Platinum model. I do feel it is a nice but I didn't want to pay the premium to have that feature. My salesman even push me toward the luxury model as it was a better value for me. Especially since I was buying and not leasing the vehicle with employee discount pricing. I paid $50k for a fully loaded luxury edition and that was a bargain I couldn't refuse. The platinum price difference was $6,958 for which I'd would have gotten 20" tires a leather shifter knobs and seats and Driver Assist Package. But it is a beautiful edition I would have been thrill to own had I purchase one.

    Re: Platinum Price Increase?

    If you look at the videos and look for items marked late arrival
    There is low speed forward breaking and rear breaking
    Then there is a faster forward breaking
    Then there is the cruise control that keeps your distance away from the vehicle in front
    Then one video says its taking a ton of pictures and warns you if the car ahead puts on its brakes....lol

    That's the late arrival stuff that is marked late

    I'm sure Cadillac is going to charge more when all is addded...but how much is it worth?

    It would be nice if it was only $850..
