Alright, kids. We’ve all heard quite a bit about Cadillac’s upcoming Omega-based flagship, and we’re here to bring you more. Foremost, we anticipate that the upcoming vehicle will be called Cadillac LTS, and that it will launch with three different trim levels. They are expected to be Premium, Luxury, and Platinum. We’re not sure of Vsport just yet. But probably.
Now, word is that there will be a tier of rear seat options. The configuration of the rear seat for the base model should feature two buckets and a compressed middle seat that everybody is all too familiar with. The second level integrates a fixed center console — which will allow passengers to control things like the heated and cooled seats, AV inputs, and more. The Platinum level, meanwhile, is expected to take things to wonderful heights, incorporating reclining rear seats, as well as a massaging function. To do this, the LTS will need an extremely long wheelbase, making it possible that the upcoming Cadillac flagship will feature two wheelbase configurations, though this is just speculation at this point. OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi Hotspot functionality is a given, but it’s unclear whether the 2016 Cadillac LTS — which launches next year — will feature unique features like heated armrests and headrests.
Interior color options remain a mystery, but if we look at the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which has 17 different leather options and five trims, it’s safe to assume that Cadillac is at least looking to be competitive on all fronts. So, expect colors and materials we have yet to see from the
Wreath and Crest.
Under the hood of the LTS, we’re expecting a hybrid V6 of some sort, a twin-turbo V6 and a new variant of a V8 engine that we have yet to see. From the outside, it’s been described as some sort of “cross between the 2015 CTS and Elmiraj concept,” pictured above.
