2019 Cadillac XTS Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Cadillac XTS?

The five-seat Cadillac XTS full-size luxury sedan is offered with front- or all-wheel drive. The car received a mild refresh last year that brought updated styling, additional sound-deadening material for a quieter ride, and an updated version of the Cadillac User Experience multimedia system. A 304-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine is standard, and the V-Sport trim level uses a twin-turbo version that produces 410 hp. Both engines team with a six-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Lincoln Continental and Lexus ES.

What’s New on the 2019 Cadillac XTS?

An upgraded wireless charging system is designed to charge devices faster.

What Features in the 2019 Cadillac XTS Are Most Important?

All XTSs come standard with leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen for Cadillac’s CUE multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, Bluetooth streaming audio and wireless device charging. Navigation is available, along with a Bose surround-sound stereo, 22-way power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and a color head-up display.

A 360-degree camera system is optional. Available active safety features include blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist.

Should I Buy the 2019 Cadillac XTS?

Cadillac currently offers two full-size luxury sedans: the XTS and CT6. They’re similar in size and price, yet the CT6 is a bit bolder and more aggressive. The XTS is more of a traditional choice, but we like its roomy cabin, large trunk and the upscale interior materials on its high-end trims.

Great car to drive

by John Sampson from Naples FL/Edina MN on August 27, 2019

I just purchased my second XTS, a 2019 replacing a 2016. I loved the previous car, and when I learned Cadillac was discontinuing the XTS after this year, I decided to purchase a new one sooner than ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
