Having introduced the XTS for the 2013 model year, Cadillac made several small improvements to the vehicle during its lifecycle. The vehicle was considered to be a stop-gap by many, including GM Authority as Cadillac needed time to develop a full-size sedan that truly reflected the sport-luxury direction of the brand, something that the XTS did not accomplish. This vehicle eventually became known as the Cadillac CT6.
The XTS was initially set to be discontinued around 2017, but its lifecycle was extended. The model received a refresh/facelift for the 2018 model year. The XTS will live out its lifecycle and then be discontinued around the 2020-2021 calendar years, with its place taken by the Cadillac CT6.
