Cadillac announces new specialty vehicles based on the 2013 XTS

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 6, 2012

Cadillac has finally released the full details of the black cab of its new 2013 XTS sedan. It also treated the fans to a glimpse of the limousine and hearse variants that will be released next. Five different XTS variants will be available for fleet buyers. These are the standard XTS Livery Sedan Package, the XTS Stretch Livery Sedan, the XTS Limousine, the XTS Funeral Coach hearse, and the XTS Armored.

To date, just the base Livery Sedan has been presented with the full set of information. The automaker hasn’t said yet what stretched the long-wheelbase cars are. It also hasn’t enumerated the precautionary methods that were used with the armoured model. The Livery Sedan Package is based on the consumer XTS so it has a length of about 202.0 inches.

Three people can be accommodated in the backseat. The 2013 Cadillac XTS livery models are offered for front-wheel drive XTS models. The new professional model uses the same 304-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission that the consumer model had used. Its fuel economy rating is also unchanged at 17/28 mpg city/highway.

The XTS livery models can proceed to work duty with the added 3-year/150,000-mile professional vehicle warranty (6-year/100,000-mile for the hearse), heavy-duty brakes, and optional tri-zone climate control.

The basic livery sedan has the 19-inch aluminum wheels with P245/45R19 all-season tires as standard. All the other models have polished 18-inchers covered in P235/55R18XL 104H all-season tires. Cadillac’s Professional Fleet is now even more impressive with the XTS. Buyers can also choose from a chauffeur version of the Escalade, Escalade Hybrid, and Escalade ESV SUVs.
