If you’ve been wanting to know how you can get a free iPad, we are delighted to tell you that we’ve found the answer. All you have to do is buy is a new 2013 Cadillac XTS, a new luxury sedan being produced at the high end of General Motor’s luxury brand.

General Motors announced this week that it will be including a free iPad with the purchase of the the XTS as a training extension of the Cadillac User Experience (CUE), which is the name of the in-vehicle capacitive touch interface control system for accessing entertainment and information in your Cadillac.

The iPads will come pre-loaded with Cadillac’s CUE app, which, as noted above, replicates the CUE interface in one’s cadillac, but includes helpful tutorials in how to actually use it. The iPads will also have GM’s MyCadillac app and OnStar RemoteLink, though they will have to reload them once they sign in with their own iTunes accounts.

The 2013 Cadillac XTS goes into production later this spring and will ship in the second half of 2012. GM has not announced pricing for the car, but did say it was being, “positioned directly above the centerpiece CTS family in Cadillac’s revamped lineup.”

We can assume the car will start somewhere above the $499 starting price of the iPad in order to cover the cost of the training tool.
