No Direct Replacement for Cadillac XTS After 2019


DETROIT — There will be no direct replacement for the Cadillac XTS large luxury sedan after 2019, as Cadillac reshapes its lineup with all-new vehicles including the 2016 Cadillac CT6 flagship sedan.

"The XTS has several more model years to come," said David Caldwell, a Cadillac spokesman, in a phone conversation on Tuesday with Edmunds. "Its life cycle goes almost to the end of this decade. When you get there, you'll have a largely different portfolio. We'll be adding eight models between now and the end of the decade."

He added: "But there is no direct replacement for the XTS after 2019."

The 2015 Cadillac XTS is on sale now at Cadillac dealerships.

Key XTS rivals include the Acura RLX, Audi A6 and Chrysler 300C.

The all-new Cadillac CT6 stole much of the spotlight at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

It's a large sedan positioned above the current CTS in Cadillac's lineup. With a wheelbase of 122 inches and an overall length of 204 inches, the CT6 is bigger than the standard-length Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series, but slightly shorter than the extended-length Audi A8L and BMW 740iL models.

Edmunds says: Cadillac luxury buyers get some reassurance that the XTS will be available for several years to come.
