At European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition 2023 (EBACE), American aero-maker Textron Aviation unveiled its newest midsized business jet, the Cessna "Citation Ascend". The aircraft is a nine-to-twelve passenger commercial industry hauler and intended as a direct successor to the Citation XLS Gen2 series. The new design is expected to enter operational service in 2025 at a cost of $16.7 million USD per airframe.

The external arrangement of the Citation Ascend will follow established company norms as BizJets go: the nose features a sleek, streamlined nosecone assembly leading to the windowed side-by-side seating cockpit. The fuselage is tubular in its general shape, capped by a single vertical fin at rear seating upward-canted horizontal planes. The mainplanes are swept back with slight dihedral and low-mounted along the sides of the aircraft. The engines are set to either side of the aircraft towards the rear and positioned outboard on wingstubs. For ground-running, the traditional wheeled tricycle arrangement will be featured.

The cockpit is set to feature all-modern systems and dominated by three full-color touchscreens. Each pilot seat has a control yoke and throttle controls are set along the center console in the usual way. The cockpit will house the Garmin G5000 avionics set. The aircraft is directly related to the in-service 560XL and thus training and certification on the new type should be relatively streamlined.

The internal arrangement is the typical single-aisle configuration with passengers transported in luxury and comfort. A full-service galley is present. Larger, rounded-rectangular windows dot the sides of the airframe.

With its twin PW545D turbofan, FADEC-equipped arrangement by Pratt & Whitney Canada (PWC), the aircraft will jet off to ranges of 2,415 miles while cruising at speeds of 505 miles-per-hour up to altitudes of 45,000 feet.
