Just the Facts:
  • The new 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport, which gets a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine, starts at $63,020, reflecting a $17,495 premium over the base 2014 XTS.
  • The base 2014 Cadillac XTS starts at $45,525.
  • A Cadillac spokesman told Edmunds there is no plan for a V-Series model within the XTS product line.

DETROIT — The new 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport, which gets a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine, starts at $63,020, including shipping, reflecting a $17,495 premium over the base 2014 XTS.

The base 2014 Cadillac XTS starts at $45,525, including a $920 destination charge.

The Vsport lineup slots underneath Cadillac's V-Series models. David Caldwell, a Cadillac spokesman, told Edmunds there is no plan for a V-Series model within the XTS product line.

The XTS Vsport model will be offered only in the high-end Premium and Platinum Collections. In addition to the engine, the Vsport includes upgraded 20-inch wheels and a unique grille.

The twin-turbo V6 in the XTS Vsport churns out 410 horsepower versus 305 hp in the base V6 engine. The upgraded engine delivers 105 pound-feet more torque over the standard V6. The new Cadillac twin-turbo engine features a long list of upgrades, including a new direct injection fuel system and new cylinder block casting.

"Vsport includes the best-performing technical elements inside the 'regular' car line in a single model, headlined by (the) twin turbo engine," said Cadillac in a statement.

Cadillac does not have official EPA fuel economy numbers on the XTS Vsport. Caldwell said EPA figures will be certified in the next couple of weeks.

"It should land in the 20s," Caldwell wrote in response to an e-mailed query. "Not remarkable in either direction."

The 2013 Cadillac XTS with the base V6 engine returns 17 mpg in city driving and 28 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA.

While the 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport has few direct competitors, shoppers may compare it to the 2013 Hyundai Genesis 5.0R Spec with a 5.0-liter GDI V8 engine or the top-of-the-line 2014 Lincoln MKS.

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis 5.0R Spec starts at $47,695, including an $895 destination charge. Hyundai has not announced 2014 Genesis pricing.

The 2014 Lincoln MKS with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine and all-wheel drive starts at $48,310, including an $895 destination charge.

Edmunds says: Cadillac spices up the 2014 XTS lineup with the Vsport model, but be prepared to pay a significant premium for the twin-turbo engine upgrade.

    I really like the current Cadillac Lineup; however, I would have to say that even though the Caddie brand is considered a luxury nameplate I don't think it warrants spending almost 20K more than the Genesis R-Spec, MKS ECO-Boost, or even an 300 SRT8. If you want to try and attempt to compare it to the A7, then it's an option, but having the XTS VSport is cutting into CTS VSport sales. If GM delivered the concept Ciel as the true Cadillac Flagship, and base priced it at around 75K, then the TT V6 would make sense in that application.

    Hey GM, how about dropping a 3 liter turbo diesel into the XTS, and add some sporty suspension and better brakes - for under $50K
