Spy Shots: Cadillac XTS is ready for the Chinese auto market
Published on November 1, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
New spy shots of the Cadillac XTS show the vehicle is ready for the Chinese auto market, where it will be launched just before the end of this year. Debut is expected for the Guangzhou Auto Show in November. The Cadillac XTS is made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture.
The Cadillac XTS stands on a stretched variant of the Epsilon II platform that also underpins other China-made GM autocars such as the Buick Regal, Buick Lacrosse and the Chevrolet Malibu. The wheelbase however didn’t change meaning this Caddy is a big car without much extra space for passengers in the back. This will make it hard for the XTS to compete with the Germans who all make vehicles with an especially stretched wheelbase in China. The Cadillac XTS will be available with a 2.0 turbo and a 3.6 V6.
