    No XTS Performance Model Planned, But Bigger Cadillac Being Eyed

    CHICAGO – Cadillac’s new flagship, the fullsize XTS sedan, is powered by a 3.6L 300-hp V-6, with no new V-8 in the works, but there may be a larger model planned.

    “We can add a turbo to the V-6, and as we move forward with the XTS there will be what we'll call power enhancements," says Don Butler, vice president-marketing for Cadillac during an interview at the auto show here.

    But there is no XTS-V super potent version. "(The) CTS and ATS are performance vehicles,” he says. “The XTS isn't a performance vehicle, so ‘no’ to a V version."

    The XTS is a full-size luxury sedan intended to replace Cadillac’s DTS and STS models. Power for the XTS is provided by a direct-injection 3.6L V6 delivering 304 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque. Shifting duties are handled by a six-speed automatic, which routes power to the front wheels or all four wheels via an optional Haldex all-wheel-drive system. Not too bad!
