What's New for 2016

The 2016 Cadillac LTS is an all-new model.

Introduction

Cadillac's ambition to deliver German and Japanese-style luxury and performance in an American-cooked package has not abated. The forthcoming 2016 Cadillac LTS takes on the most hallowed of German executive shuttles: the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The Lexus LS and Jaguar XJ can also be counted among this elite group that Detroit's prestige badge intends to join.

If the LTS simply adopts the design themes from its smaller, muscular CTS and ATS sedans, the rest should fall in place. A longer hood, larger trunk and voluminous rear seat will give the LTS the low-slung, long-wheelbase presence it needs in this class. Even under the camouflage in these spy photos, the rear end shows an outline not unlike a Maserati Quattroporte, its quad tailpipes suggesting a high-performance "V Series" edition already in development.

Yet even if the new car resembles its junior partners, the LTS won't simply be a CTS with a longer body. It will be one of the first General Motors cars, if not the first, built atop a new chassis intended for GM's future full-size luxury cars and crossovers. This should help infuse the LTS with its own unique driving, handling and comfort qualities, without simply adapting its character from the smaller cars.

A 420-horsepower turbocharged V6 -- the same engine found in the current CTS Vsport -- is the likeliest engine to power the new chassis. A V8 option, however, is almost a requirement in this class, so expect to see something from GM's latest small-block eight-cylinder portfolio. An eight-speed automatic transmission will pair with either engine, and all-wheel drive will be an option for buyers in snow- and rainbelt states.

The interior should boast the full complement of Cadillac style and technology. Expect the cabin to feature large swaths of leather, wood and aluminum trim, accented by customizable LED ambient lighting. A long-wheelbase LTS isn't likely, but the rear seat area looks large enough to accommodate optional reclining seats with footrests. At the very least, there will be a vast expanse of rear legroom. Cadillac's CUE infotainment interface is likely to come standard and it can't be improved, upgraded or overhauled soon enough for this premium luxury experience.

The full-size luxury sedan segment is wildly competitive. With offerings from Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Lexus and Mercedes, there's not a bad one in the bunch. Even the Hyundai Equus is a legitimate contender in this group. But if you're looking for what promises to be a world-class luxury sedan from a legacy Detroit brand, the LTS should be worth the wait.

Look for the new Cadillac LTS to go on sale in the fall of 2015, starting at around $75,000. For comparison, a base model BMW 7 Series starts at $1,000 less. Check back for a full review of the LTS, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
