When the Cadillac XTS first arrived last year, it offered just one engine: the LFX 3.6L V6 engine, pumping out a sufficient 304 horsepower. But in the world where performance and luxury tend to go hand-and-hand, the lone engine option was not enough for the big Caddy. So with the announcement of the LF3 twin-turbo V6 for the Cadillac CTS Vsport, the brand also announced that the more spacious, front-wheel-drive based XTS will offer the engine.
Officially called the 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport, the boosted cruiser will offer 410 horsepower, and 370 pound-feet to the driver’s right foot, and will send power to all the wheels. And as of today, the XTS Vsport will have an MSRP of $63,020, including destination. The price comes under that of the Audi S6, but with its larger trunk, there’s room for exactly four golf bags.
We should however note that the XTS Vsport is now officially more expensive than the $59,995 MSRP that the 2014 CTS Vsport model will command — which is a tad more powerful, features an eight-speed tranny, and is rear-wheel-drive. For buyers, we suppose it all comes down to preference in the end. A roomy all-wheel-drive business sedan? Or the more driver-focused sport sedan? Choice is a luxury, after all.
