Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen saved the XTS from the chopping block some time ago and promised a major refresh of the front-wheel drive sedan will come later this year. Thanks to spy shots Konrad Ysak, we’ve gotten a pretty decent look at the front clip.
We believe this is indeed the 2018 Cadillac XTS judging by the overall side profile and its sharp stylistic crease running from the front fender out to the rear. It also sports identical door mirrors and seems to cover a Cadillac badge on its fender in the same fashion as previous spy photos.
As stated, this is the closest look of the 2018 XTS’ front end we’ve seen. Either the camouflage is doing an excellent job at skewing our eyesight or the XTS is about to look a lot like a Cadillac CT6 up front, judging by the daytime LED lights sweeping vertically down into the lowest area of the front bumper.
If introduced later this year, it will be the only vehicle to surface in 2017 for the Cadillac brand. The first all-new Cadillac, the XT4 crossover, is expected to arrive in early 2018. The XT4 will kick off a slew of new product for Cadillac, as it aims to introduce a new vehicle every six months for two years.
