Cadillac XTS vSport – Something New for 2014

The 2014 Cadillac XTS vSport ready to surprise with 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 304 hp and 264 pound-feet of torque. The fuel consumption at EPA-estimated 17 mpg city/28 mpg highway, 21 mpg combined with front wheel and drive power. There is 410 horsepower as why not to favor this unique class of model.

One would love to see Cadillac XTS vSports as Platinum edition! Cadillac has better performance, beefed-up suspension, bigger wheels and tires, a corvette-sourced, and beastly-design. It is indeed an appealing model for all car lovers. Passenger capacity is like an APV with 17-foot long cubic feet with a trunk biggest on the auto market. Exterior alterations in this model are minimal with a different grille. The front and special badge on the trunk lid are the some cosmetic changes that Cadillac has emerged with and six-speed automatic transmission used besides all of those items combine to offer an EPA-rated 16 MPG in the city, 24 on the highway or 19 overall is good performance. The company is trying to establish itself as Tier-1 market player for luxury cars, a direct competition with GM and other elite class car producers.

The company claims to have launch the most technically advance model in its history. The Twin Turbo engine Vsport is inspired and a narrow horizontal “underneath” Cadillac’s super elite high-performance V-Series models. The car includes the best-performing technical specifications inside a “regular” car in a single model. It is a very good-looking car for given price. If one looking for a REAL American sport yet luxury sedan.

Loaded with features Cadillac XTS vSports offers;

  • Cylinder Block Casting is a new feature.
  • Connecting rods has further being strengthened

    Cadillac XTS vSport has few direct competitors and shoppers may compare it to the 2013 model of Hyundai Genesis with a 5.0-liter, GDI V8 engine or German luxury sedans or the top-of-the-line 2014 Lincoln MKS both having matching specifications.

    The stiffer feeling of power steering causes some problem, which is in continuation from previous series the problem, is still present in this model. The front wheel feels overpower a good feature for some occasions but not always for smooth drive.

    The model is somewhat Vfast than Vsport, with power of engine verses road performance. The sport model fans may not prefer whereas others may look for other competitors for better performance cars. Many reviewers fail to see that this car is not really competing with anything since it is in its own class. This is an impressive car and I say this sincerely as someone who enjoys all kinds of sport sedans. This is not nor a sports sedan and neither intended to be the one.
