Pros

Spacious; luxurious; quiet and technology laden with available all-wheel drive; potent turbocharged V6


Model Highlights

The 2015 Cadillac XTS benefits from a host of technological features. The interior is the largest benefactor of this technology, including Cadillac's CUE information and media control module. CUE, which stands for "Cadillac User Experience," features an 8-inch touch screen set in the center stack that functions similarly to an iPad. It is able to respond to touch gestures as well as voice commands and utilizes much of the same technology as the aforementioned iPad. Cadillac has even gone so far as to design a CUE app for the iPad, further integrating it into the car.

Also unique among luxury sedans is Cadillac's magnetic dampening system. Normally seen on much more exotic sports cars, magnetic dampening uses magnets in conjunction with magnetic-reactive fluid in the shock absorbers to adjust shock stiffness and ride on the fly, producing both a quiet ride and surprisingly good handling for a luxury car.

The Cadillac XTS is available in four different trims: Standard, Luxury, Premium and Platinum. All-wheel drive is available on any of the top three models and adds a couple thousand dollars to the price of the vehicle. Standard power across the line comes from a 305-hp 3.6L V6. A new twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 bumps output up to 410 hp, with 369 ft-lb of torque. It is available on Vsport spec models in the Premium and Platinum line.

The base XTS is very well equipped, with a long list of standard items, including 19-inch wheels, HID xenon headlights and a roof mounted antenna, as well as interior accoutrements like an 8-speaker Bose sound system, parking assist, leather seating and a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat.

Stepping up to the Luxury edition will net several improvements and open up the option of having all-wheel drive. Lighting is enhanced with daytime running lights and improved interior lighting, while the front seats now feature thigh adjustments. A rear view back up camera and nicer 19-inch wheels round out the important differences between the Standard and Luxury trim.

The Premium edition adds a navigation system, an uprated 14-speaker Bose sound system and a trick LCD instrument cluster that can be reconfigured and customized to the buyers' tastes.

The top-of-the-line Platinum edition adds 20-inch wheels, a power sunroof and sunshades for back seat occupants. The front fascia of the Platinum edition car has also been subtly modified to set it apart from lesser versions of the XTS.

The XTS is a thoroughly modern car, and the safety features speak for themselves. The standard host of anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control are all present, as are dual-stage front airbags, side-impact airbags, curtain airbags and knee airbags. A driver awareness package is also available, which includes features like Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone alert. The Driver Assist Package takes things one step further adding adaptive cruise control and Automatic Collision Preparation, to the list of safety features.


Model News

The Cadillac XTS returns for 2015 with several minor improvements to a few of the trim levels. A revised rear seat armrest on Platinum and Platinum Vsport trims now features radio controls and sunshade controls while Platinum Collection trimmed XTS' get new 22-way adjustable power front seats with heating, cooling and massage functions. Power folding side mirrors are now available as are a new 19" wheel design. Lane assist is also now available on front-wheel drive models.


Value Writeup

Starting at just under $45,000, the XTS competes with midsized luxury sedans from European manufacturers like BMW, Audi and Mercedes. The XTS offers more interior room and cargo space, however and the availability of a new 3.6L turbocharged V6 means the XTS can more than hold its own. Available all-wheel drive increases practicality and fits well with all the other impressive technologies available on the XTS.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Cadillac XTS vehicles manufactured February 14, 2012, to August 22, 2014, and 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala vehicles manufactured November 5, 2012, to September 2, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the electronic parking brake piston actuation arm may not fully retract causing the brake pads to stay partially engaged.

Consequence
Brake pads that remain partially engaged with the rotors may cause excessive brake heat that may result in a fire.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the electronic parking brake software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14471.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015 Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Camaro, Equinox, Malibu, and GMC Terrain vehicles. The affected vehicles have front seat-mounted side impact air bags whose inflator may rupture upon its deployment.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of one or both of the side impact air bags, the air bag's inflator may rupture and the air bag may not properly inflate. The rupture could cause metal fragments to strike the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death. Additionally, if the air bag does not properly inflate, the driver or passenger is at an increased risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side impact air bag modules, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 19, 2015. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 01320.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
