When the 2013 Cadillac XTS hits dealerships later this spring it will be available with a 3.6 liter V6 (LFX) engine making around 300 horsepower – however, what most of us are wondering is if there will be a V8 version with a ‘V’ badge at the end.

“We can add a turbo to the V-6, and as we move forward with the XTS there will be what we’ll call power enhancements,” Don Butler, vice president-marketing for Cadillac told WardsAuto. However, he said there will be no XTS-V performance version.

“(The) CTS and ATS are performance vehicles,” Butler said. “The XTS isn’t a performance vehicle, so ‘no’ to a V version.”

Nonetheless, the Cadillac XTS gets Magnetic Ride Control and borrows Brembo braking from Caddy’s V-Series high performance models.

    Big, average, bloated FWD psuedo luxury sedan – the available AWD doesn’t make up for it. Drive a Holden Caprice/Chevvy PPV and feel what this car should have been if it had been a proper competitor for BMW/MBenz if it had been based on Zeta underpinnings. Wait! That couldn’t happen, it wasn’t invented in the US….

    How can there be a V Spec with a V6 engine?
    Stupid GM (as usual).
    So, Mercedes “S” Class AMG’s, BMW M’s and AUDI S8 & ABT’s are proof just how wrong a decision this is.
    D’oh.
