The main attraction of the 2014 Cadillac XTS
Cadillac designers and engineers have all but cornered the market on the performance-based luxury sedan. The biggest change for the new 2014 Cadillac XTS is the wildly popular and sought-after improvement of the 3.6-liter, V-6 engine. For the Premium and Platinum Vsport trim levels, Cadillac has added twin turbochargers to its already powerful engine that increases the output to 410 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. With these trims and with this engine, the 2014 Cadillac XTS and its six-speed automatic transmission is exclusively paired with all-wheel drive. This drivetrain configuration will record an Environmental Protection Agency fuel-economy score of 16 miles per gallon in the city and 24 miles per gallon on the highway.
The base trim of the 2014 Cadillac XTS in San Antonio, TX still features the original 3.6-liter, V-6 engine that remains naturally aspirated and produces 304 horsepower. This base engine comes with the six-speed transmission and front-wheel drive as a standard setup. According to the EPA, the fuel-economy should be 17 miles per gallon in the city and 28 miles per gallon on the highway. Choosing the all-wheel drive option will shave a little bit off of the fuel-economy.
