Aircraft History

The Citation XLS is a Citation Excel, with more payload, improved PW545B engines and improved range.
 
The Model 560-XL Citation XLS combines a shortened Citation X cabin with a modified Citation V wing. Its two P&W PW545B turbofan engines provide 330 nautical miles more range and a normal cruise speed 19 knots faster than the Citation Excel. The cabin provides comfortable seating for seven passengers.
 
Cessna introduced the Citation XLS in 2003 and deliveries commenced shortly afterwards.
