Cadillac XTS dash display

The Cadillac XTS dash display is the type of dash I want on every Cadillac I drive from now on.

You can choose from different modes for the display, and a variety of display options within each mode.  The Cadillac XTS dash is one part of the new Cadillac CUE system.

This weekend I am test driving a Cadillac XTS courtesy of Crest Cadillac.  See my other posts —   Pickup, Cadillac XTS at Cars and Coffee, Cadillac XTS Virtual Dyno.

Today Son2 and I grabbed lunch after church, and spent some time configuring and taking photos of the Cadillac XTS dash display.  All of these images are images of the dash of the Cadillac XTS as looking from the driver’s seat through the steering wheel.  Yes, these are all taken in the same car!

Balanced: this Cadillac XTS dash display features full tachometer and speedometer, but gives equal space to car status gauges like water temperature and fuel.  I have elected to have navigation information displayed in the gauge center.  I could have just chosen to have the gauge needle show there for simplicity.

Warning: This display is warning me that by pulling into a parking space in front of the restaurant I have gotten too close to the nearby wall!

Cadillac XTS Dash Display — Summary

The Cadillac XTS dash is extremely versatile.  This is clearly the direction that all dashes need to take on every Cadillac in the future.  It also promises even more customization freedom — such as if you could design and upload your own dash templates, or download new templates from Cadillac.com!
