Report: Detroit-Bound Mystery Cadillac Concept Is Actually XTS Sedan

On Tuesday, we broke the news that Cadillac would be unveiling an all-new concept car (teaser image shown above), as well as the production-ready CTS-V Coupe at next month's Detroit Auto Show. And while the details on the V-badged Caddy Coupe are pretty much set in stone, we could only come up with speculation about what the concept car would be.

Until now.

Our friends at Jalopnik have somehow managed to get ahold of the NAIAS floor plan, which clearly shows space in the Cadillac booth for the "XTS Showcar." The XTS, as you'll recall, is set to be the brand's new flagship model, replacing the STS and DTS. Reports indicate that it will be built on the same Epsilon II platform as the Buick LaCrosse, and its styling cues will be heavily influenced by the Cadillac Sixteen concept from 2003.

We'll be sure to keep you posted as to the official details.
