Special features for 2008

The 2008 Cadillac XLR features a standard retractable hard top, which most of its competitors don't. The Cadillac is more elegantly simple than many of its peers, as well, with no complex driving electronics and no performance adjustments to be made. It instead offers a broad torque curve and plenty of dramatic styling.


With bountiful standard equipment, a convenient retractable hardtop, beautiful styling and a powerful engine, the 2008 Cadillac XLR-V is driving pleasure wrapped in a sporty two door Convertible package. The XLR-V features a 443 horsepower 4.4-liter V8 with 414 lb.-ft of torque and a 6-speed overdrive-enabled transmission. This two door Convertible also features plenty of luxury amenities (most of them standard equipment), including leather bucket seats, a navigation system, plenty of power accessories, dual zone climate control and AM/FM/CD/Changer/Satellite.
