2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport priced at $63,020Mon, 24 Jun 2013 00:00:00 -0700
We knew the 2014 XTS Vsport would get twin-turbo power, but now Cadillac has officially revealed the pricing and specs for the new high-powered XTS at a healthy $63,020, including destination.
The 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 delivers 410 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque and has an array of new features, including all-new cylinder block casting, strengthened connecting rods, more than 12 lbs. of boost from the two turbochargers and an all-new direct-injection fuel system.
The powerplant is the centerpiece of Cadillac's new Vsport series, which we got a taste of in the form of the CTS Vsport revealed this year. Don't fret though -- the automaker clearly states that this is not a replacement for the V-series, but sits just below Cadillac's high-performance lineup.
Exterior goodies include upgraded 20-inch wheels, a unique grille and Vsport badging all while allowing the buyer to customize their XTS to their taste.
“The addition of the new Cadillac Twin Turbo expands and elevates the XTS luxury sedan,” said Bob Ferguson, vice president of Global Cadillac. “This is a compelling enhancement to what is already one of the most technically advanced sedans in our history." Cadillac hasn't officially stated whether AWD will be standard with the Vsport, but with this much power, it is a safe bet to assume so.
The XTS Vsport is slated to go on sale in August and will be offered only in the up-level premium and platinum collection trim levels.
