    Nice Source for Original Cadillac Brochures

    Did a search for brochures on Cadillac Owners.com and didn't find much.

    My Google-fu was strong however, and I was able to locate this site, all free good quality PDFs. They are useful for determining the options on the various trim levels. I was surprised to learn that the 2013 XTS Luxury seems to have only two interior choices, black and Shale with Cocoa.

    http://www.auto-brochures.com/cadillac.html

    Edit: Correction - there were two optional besides the two above, likely extra cost:

    3. Caramel with Jet Black accents available on XTS Luxury and XTS Premium Collections.
    4. Medium Titanium with Jet Black accents available on XTS Luxury and XTS Premium Collections.

    I looked for the caramel on used XTS Luxury, very hard to find. Would have looked good with the Graphite Metallic, sort of a Euro-British 1950s color scheme.

    It's great to see all these brochures! You pretty much can't even get a paper brochure from any dealer anymore, which is a shame when you are paying $60,000 for an automobile.

    They certainly put a lot more effort into the 2013 debut brochure. The elegant, detailed, descriptive prose reminds me of something from the era of classic cars. Then, year by year it evolves into more of an intangible ownership experience.

    I wonder if the brochures were available in hard copies. I sure would like to get a hold of a 2013 one. At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, Buick had them, Cadillac did not.

    Too bad the 2004 XLR brochure isn't listed. I have never seen Cadillac create one like it before --or since - 56 pages long with semi-transparent velum dividers!

    You can always place a search notification on eBay. Occasionally, old brochures are listed and you'll get an email.

    I have a collection of the old brochures starting from 1964 till about the mid 2000's. Every year, every model. They started getting harder to get & now they are all digital. I always loved the high gloss pictures & the descriptions of the vehicles they gave. I also have a collection of service manuals mainly from the 70's, 80's & 90's. They were always good reading. I loved how each chapter used to start with "The Theory of Operation" & they explained how every component worked & how they all worked together & how to repair each component. Now everything is a tree that ends in "Replace Module." lol

    Found and ordered an original 2013 XTS brochure on ebay, 64 pages. Yikes! Well, it was the new "Flagship" sedan, even if interim. Wasn't it also the introduction of CUE?

    I have browsed those. The paint color selections from the 50's never cease to amaze me.
