Report: There will be no high-performance Cadillac XTS-V

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.
