    More substantial changes are expected under the skin. While the XTS rides on General Motors’ older Epsilon II platform, it’s likely the updated car will adopt a few features from GM’s latest E2XX platform which is the evolution of Epsilon II.

    Possibilities include the addition of a more efficient 9-speed automatic in favor of the current 6-speed. We could also see the current model’s base 304-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 replaced by a more powerful 3.6-liter V-6 already found in other GM vehicles such as the Buick LaCrosse. The 410-hp 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 in the current XTS Vsport model should remain, however.

    Once again, front-wheel drive should be standard and all-wheel drive made available.

    It’s not clear what changes will be made inside. We know the XTS just received a revised instrument cluster for 2017. It’s likely the updated model will stick with this while adding the latest version of Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system. The latest version, dubbed 2.0, is much easier to use and operates more like a smartphone.

    I actually really like it. Nice update.

    The rear appears to be more simple, but more elegant in a way.

    When your partner is the Chinese government, embargos on new models are not up to you......
    Pony Car: an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image and an available V8.

    No Escala influence here. What a shame.

    If Cadillac have a change of heart and decide to do a Cadillac XTS next gen (for the town car business) on the new longer WB LaCrosse platform, I'd save it for that.

    Yeah, and that big gaping empty space between the side marker lights the grille and below the headlights makes it look like something is missing that they forgot.

    The rear definitely is Escala-influenced.

    They got some Welburn effect(overwrought)a goin' on too with the vertical area of the trunk lid being Escala on steriods and sticking out farther than on the concept by the looks of it.

    You are correct. I was referring to the front. I always thought the XTS was a good looking car but the CT6 front on it will hopefully be Cadillac's last usage of that design language.

    That I definitely agree with, I thought it'd have something much closer to the Escala look.

    Yeah, I agree it looks like it's a bit too far out.
