2017 Cadillac XT5

Jan 20th
That chestnut about effort equals reward doesn’t always play in the car biz. Case in point: Cadillac. Customer reaction to billions invested in two excellent new sports sedans (CTS and ATS) and one coupe (ATS) has been an unwavering taste for the old-guard Escalade, SRX, and XTS. This hasn’t hindered Cadillac’s determination to wage a frontal assault on luxury imports…
2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan

Jan 10th
Need we remind you these are seriously twisted times? Without prompt intervention, Bartholomew JoJo Simpson, that lovable fourth-grade cartoon cutup, will never see his 11th birthday. Homer is dumping Marge for a younger woman. Former down-home darling Miley Cyrus might be the instrument of some secret society. And in our own world, zero-emission vehicles are vying for garage space with…
2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan

Jan 9th
The Phantom Gray 2017 Cadillac ATS Premium Performance model you see here has all the right stuff to be a world-class sports sedan: a solid, lightweight platform; rear-wheel drive; a high-revving 3.6-liter V-6 with 335 naturally aspirated horsepower; a snappy eight-speed automatic transmission; adaptive, adjustable magnetorheological dampers; a limited-slip differential; and staggered-width summer tires. Stir in options such as the…
2017 Cadillac XT5

Jan 8th
As luxury SUVs have gone from relative obscurity to regulars in the valet line, competition has grown fierce, and the measure of overall goodness has been steadily on the rise. And that is how it should be; pretty good just doesn’t cut it anymore.Unfortunately for Cadillac, the new XT5 rates as merely pretty good in the face of worthy competition,…
2016 Cadillac CT6

Jan 3rd
Four or five decades ago, the country-club parking lot would have been considered the natural habitat for any vehicle wearing Cadillac’s wreath and crest. But things changed somewhere in the latter half of the 20th century, when the idle rich and the aspirational merely wealthy moved on to European, and later Japanese, marques in search of the exclusivity and status…
2016 Cadillac Escalade

Jan 2nd
Cadillac’s Escalade is by now a known quantity—that quantity being big, slathered in chrome, and with a swagger all its own. General Motors has cashed in on its pop-culture icon over the years, gradually raising the price from less than $50,000 in 2002 to a hair under $74,000 today. At a time when full-size pickups and SUVs from Chevrolet and…
2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan

Dec 29th
The lone domestic premium brand with a pulse is growing ever stronger and more confident as it slowly rises from its 30-year snooze. The second-generation Cadillac CTS-V and the new ATS were the first payments on debts from promises long made and ­routinely broken. Now we’ve driven the reborn CTS and believe the General is indeed serious about returning Cadillac…
2013 Cadillac XTS

Dec 28th
Forget the snoozer STS and the phlegmatic DTS. The XTS now sits atop the Cadillac lineup as the brand’s new flagship (well, at least until the Mercedes S-class-targeting, über-luxury rear-drive sedan based on the upcoming Omega platform arrives a few years down the road). Sporting the latest interpretation of Cadillac’s Art and Science design theme, the XTS looks like a…
2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan

Dec 18th
The 2014 CTS is proof that Cadillac is learning from the mistakes and missteps of previous decades and—even better—not repeating them. Each successive CTS has been better executed and, well, just better. Careful honing and constant improvement make for great cars, and if you do so long enough, you’ll have built a strong brand. So, yes, the third-generation CTS is…
2015 Cadillac Escalade

Dec 17th
Now in its fourth generation since its 1999 introduction, the Cadillac Escalade remains one of the automotive world’s patron saints of conspicuous consumption. Checking in 1.5 inches wider, 1.4 inches longer, and about 100 pounds heavier than the model it replaced, the large-livin’ 2015 Escalade makes no excuses for its imposing presence.Built on the same truck-based underpinnings as the rest…
2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan

Dec 15th
We’ve fallen for the turbocharged and naturally aspirated V-6 models of Cadillac’s third-gen CTS sedan. But the redesigned 5-series fighter and 10Best winner also comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that helps hold down the new Cad’s starting price, which is high enough to fall over.The 272-hp 2.0T is standard on the bottom-rung CTS.  At $46,025, this CTS is still…
2014 Cadillac ELR

Dec 3rd
The Cadillac ELR is a future pod, a show car made real. And it better look like a million bucks, because everybody’s going around calling it the $75,995 Chevy Volt.Yes, you read that correctly. The ELR’s entry price is nearly double that of the Volt, the Caddy’s mechanical starting point, and it’s roughly 2.5 times that of the average new…
