GM on Cadillac XTS getting approved for production: We’ve made no such announcement

Motor Trend reported yesterday that the Cadillac XTS large luxury sedan has been given the thumbs up for production by GM executives and that the production model should arrive within two years.

The folks at Inside Line decided to do some digging and contacted Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell to confirm the report by Motor Trend.

Caldwell said: “We intend to produce a car that’s in a class above the CTS period. How much of it will be like the [XTS] concept, I can’t talk about. We’re obviously developing new products, including something above the CTS.

When asked if the Cadillac XTS Platinum Concept as given the green light for production Caldwell said: “I don’t think anything has taken place there. “We’ve made no such announcement. [But] we don’t do things that we don’t actually consider doing. All of our concepts are rooted in something we could do.”

For those of you that are probably a bit disappointed right now – don’t worry – because no matter what Motor Trend or Inside Line report, the XTS is definitely slated for production (since Caddy needs a replacement for the DTS and STS), we just don’t know when it will hit the streets.
