    i miss the garden variety of these and the chevy and buick twins. Good cars, comfy, solid v6 powertrains with good power and efficiency. Too bad they quite making them

    A seven-year-old Cadillac, and a front-wheel-drive one at that? Maybe instead title this series "Overpriced User Car Review"?

    The XTS, where GM actually spent some time and effort on the interior but then dropped it into a car that drove exactly like an Impala, or, with the turbos, like an Impala with more torque steer. The platform also didn't allow for the feeling of open space that the geezers liked.

    So it ended up being neither fish nor fowl. Not soft enough or benchy enough to please people who liked their '00s DeVilles/DTSes, but also not solid or refined enough to please the luxury sedan crowd.

    I have a 2014 Platinum model that I bought in 2019 with less that 13k miles and less than half of its original MSRP. It has absolute no compromises. Beautiful well crafted interior of leather, real wood, alcantara, and nickel silver trim. Silky smooth 410 HP twin turbo V6. The car has a stunning presence, and has terrific lighting elements inside and out. Even now, after putting 30K miles on it, I look around and smile as I admire its traits. The 410 HP engine is Cadillac exclusive, and is smooth as silk. The magnetic suspension is so controlled. I traded in a 2010 Charger RT AWD in for this car and could not be happier (and I LOVED that Charger). The CUE system is a piece of cake to use especially after you use it a few times. Everyone I know who comes in contact with this car is really blown away with it. And to those calling it a "gussied up Impala", please note the Caddy came out first. The Impala is instead a "gussied down Caddy" and good for Chevy. Its interior is even nicer than the CT6s. I could not be happier with this stunner.
