More information about the upcoming, flagship Cadillac LTS is beginning to be churned out by the rumourmill and now the latest reports indicate that the luxury car will be available in three different trim levels from launch.
GM Authority says that these are expected to be the Premium, Luxury and Platinum. Additionally, there’s a chance that a Vsport variant will be offered.
In the entry-level Cadillac LTS, the car will reportedly feature a rear seat configuration with two bucket seats and a modest middle seat. As for the next-in-range LTS, it should incorporate a fixed centre console with to control the heated and cooled seats and more. Finally, the Cadillac LTS Premium will really take the fight to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with rear seats which recline and include a massage function.
As a result of the inclusion of such rear seats, there’s a possibility that the Cadillac LTS will be available with two different wheelbase configurations.
Engine wise, a few powerplants are expected to be offered. These will include a new V8, a hybrid V6 as well as a twin-turbocharged V6.
While recently speaking with Autoblog, a Cadillac insider revealed that the new LTS will follow on from the most recent wave of Cadillac models and show that the American brand can compete with the very best from Europe. Beyond all the technologies that such a model will require, the Cadillac LTS will have to be fairly light if it has any hope of competing with the latest S-Class, the upcoming carbon-fibre 7-Series and Audi A8.
From a visual standpoint, it is suggested that the Cadillac LTS will take design inspiration from the Elmiraj Concept revealed at this time last year. The car has been spied testing in the past and it is believed that with former Infiniti chief Johan de Nysschen set to arrive at Cadillac very soon, the project will inevitably be further boosted.
