Back in May, Cadillac announced some updates for the 2014 XTS full-size sedan. One of the major items was a newly available twin-turbocharged V-6 engine option. Today Cadillac announced that the engine will be used in the XTS Vsport model, priced from $63,020 including destination.
The Vsport models sit below Cadillac's performance cars like the CTS-V.
Powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6 rated at 410 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, the XTS Vsport has one of the most powerful six-cylinder engines in its class. It's also only down 35 horsepower when compared to the V-8 2014 BMW 550i, while undercutting its price by $4k when you factor in the XTS Vsport's standard all-wheel-drive system.
Magnetic Ride Control, 20-inch alloy wheels, and a six-speed automatic transmission are all standard on the XTS Vsport. And it's only available in the Premium and Platinum Collection trim levels.
Pricing for the base XTS at $45,525 remains the same as 2013. Base models are equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine rated at 306 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard with all-wheel drive as an option.
