Cadillac XTS Platinum Concept in Detroit: Photo Gallery

Cadillac has unveiled the XTS flagship sedan at the Detroit Auto show this week.  The XTS is expected to replace the STS and DTS as Cadillac’s premium luxury offering.  It is a combination of Cadillac’s new signature looks, technology features and a plug-in hybrid system.

The XTS concept’s hybrid drivetrain will feature a 3.6-L V-6 with direct injection.  The batteries can take a full charge from a standard wall outlet.  Periods of purely electric propulsion will be possible for the XTS, drastically increasing fuel economy.  The combination of gas engine and electric motor are estimated to produce about 350 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque to provide an exciting driving experience.

A luxuriously comfortable, yet aggressively sport ride is provided, thanks to Magnetic Ride Control.  Sensors monitor the position of the vehicle relative to the road every millisecond.  Electronically controlled magneto-rheological fluid in the shock dampers actively smooth out the road while providing excellent grip and stability.

Cadillac has incorporated it’s new Platinum features into the XTS concept.  This package is highlighted by hand-cut and sewn interior materials, and OLED displays in place of traditional gauge clusters.  They are looking to push the boundaries of luxury and driver comfort with the Platinum package.
