2008 Cadillac XLR-V Features

The 2008 Cadillac XLR-V has no optional equipment, because as is the case with its smaller brother the XLR, all equipment is standard.

Kelley Blue Book reports, "Just about everything a luxury-performance fan could savor is included" in the list price of the 2008 Cadillac, though they note that "none of the features are unique or particularly dramatic."

The 2008 Cadillac XLR-V is amply optioned for its $100,000 price tag.

Edmunds states "only one [Cadillac XLR-V 2008] trim is available, but -- as befits the car's nearly six-figure price tag -- it's fully loaded. Perks like Bluetooth phone connectivity, heated leather seats and adaptive cruise control (which automatically maintains a preset distance between the roadster and the car ahead of it) are all standard."

The Detroit News asserts "Cadillac lavishes enough high-tech features on the car to rival Germany's best, but without the unnecessarily complicated controls...standard features include adaptive headlamps, radar cruise control, an ultrasonic reverse sensing system, rain-sensing wipers, a DVD navigation system with touch-screen."

Because this 2008 Cadillac is fully loaded, the very term "optional equipment" is meaningless here. Edmunds adds that the Cadillac XLR-V 2008's "comprehensive equipment list leaves room for only a pair of options: the Alpine White Edition (which features its namesake's exterior hue along with chrome wheels) and chrome wheels."
