    Acceleration times

    Wondering if anyone has seen any timed acceleration runs tested anywhere? Can't seem to find any online. Obviously, the XTS is not meant to be a hot rod boy racer, but I'm curious how it compares with a DTS H.O. Or, for that matter, with a Lincoln MKS Ecoboost twin turbo.

    According to the article in the above link 0-60 time is 6.8 seconds.

    I put my foot in it at around 1k miles and my wife clocked 0-60 at 6.3 seconds on my trusty old Timex. I'm pretty sure someone will have a YouTube video out there soon enough. There were sure a lot of them on the STS and STS-V.

    I don't think it's going to be anywhere near the MKS with ecoboost but it shouldn't be too far from the high output DTS.

    I think it should do a blast from 0-60 in around 6.7 seconds. I'll be shocked if anyone gets it below 6.5 seconds.

    Which is kind of a shame even though most people are fine with that...

    not any worse or better than a base A6, or E class really. Infact the 2.0t FWD A6 manages the sprawl in 7.5seconds.

    I know the 528i's manage it in the very low 6's, but it also has a brand new powertrain.

    Re: Acceleration times

    Sorry, I was being facetious. Not every one has a sense of humor.
    Actually, in testing, Cadillac claims 0-60 time of 6.8, probably under ideal conditions (best temperature, tires at optimum pressure, etc). This is adequate, but by no means quick. I suppose one could argue that I should go buy a V if I want times of 4.5 seconds. Would be nice to get somewhere in the middle though. Please bring on that twin turbo for 2014!

    I wasn't referring to being as slow as a city bus :P just that it's about average for cars of it's class.

    If someone wants "fast", they can wait for the 2014 CTS 3.6TT. Or in the mean time, buy the ATS 3.6L.
