SAN ANTONIO, Texas, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- If there was ever an arms race worth having, it would be the one between the 2014 Cadillac XTS vs. 2014 Lexus GS 350. Both vehicles have some of the most enviable histories in the luxury vehicle world. As far as evenly matched cars go, these two are as closely matched as two vehicles can be. From just about every conceivable metric the 2014 XTS and 2014 GS 350 are very evenly matched. But Cadillac engineers when with one of their strengths and kept a number of engine options available to customers. With options from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine to an even more powerful turbocharged V-6, the 2014 Cadillac XTS is ready to meet the performance expectations of the modern Cadillac consumer.
