New 2013 Cadillac XTS sedan as Town Car successor


The Town Car name has been synonymous with the Lincoln luxury sedan model for many generations, but since the restructuring of the Ford Company, many of its car models got flushed under the carpet along with the many Lincoln models. But one car show most resilience throughout this debacle of it all is the Lincoln Town Car, where debates have been fought over to whether to retain it or not.

The final verdict is the demise of the Lincoln Town Car, which Lincoln has converted into a crossover-styled MKT Town Car. So General Motors has jumped in to take its place with the new 2013 Cadillac XTS sedan, which it hopes to capitalize the limousine market, catapult it ahead of longtime rival Lincoln,  and go head-to-head with other luxury brand sedans as well.

Even though the new 2013 Cadillac XTS sedan doesn’t represent the old, slow looking Lincoln Town Car, it does represent a large luxury sedan with a modern twist of sleekness that emphasizes a sportier, younger luxury image.

“This new vehicle will help dispel some of the myths out there about Cadillac,” said Ray Bush, Cadillac Professional Vehicles Program Manager. “The Cadillac of old was from the standpoint of large, floaty vehicles. Cadillac has moved away from that with its new products launched over the last 10 years. The XTS will further that with outstanding ride characteristics that compare favorably with Cadillac vehicles of the past.”

All and all, the Town Car will still have its name carry on through the 2013 Cadillac XTS sedan, which is a representation of a modern Town Car that will ought to please many young executives.

The new 2013 Cadillac XTS sedan will make its debut at  the upcoming International LCT (Limousine, Charter and Tour) Show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on February 13th, 2012.  In addition to the standard 2013 Cadillac XTS sedan, Cadillac will showcase the XTS W20 Livery Sedan Package as well, with the extended sedan and limousine chassis available later this year.
