2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan

Mar 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

Mar 27th
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

Mar 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

Mar 16th
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

Mar 14th
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

Mar 2nd
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…
2016 Cadillac ATS-V Sedan

Feb 29th
The chassis guys at Cadillac need to sit down with the designers. An intervention is in order. Maybe we can help.Engineering is responsible for the ATS-V’s superlative chassis, which features steering, brakes, suspension, and tires that work in symphonic harmony. There are simply no atonal notes as the ATS-V moves down the road. Each instrument is perfectly tuned and balanced…
2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe

Feb 27th
The eccentric tenor of Austin, Texas, goes so far beyond the stereotypes that it could pass for paro­dy. In the city’s South Congress neighborhood, for example, you get your kale juice, fried chicken, and breakfast tacos not from a food truck, but from food Airstreams and food shipping containers. The local thrift shop shares a wall with American Apparel, and…
2015 Cadillac Escalade

Feb 5th
Cadillac has never shied away from size and mass. As early as 1930, there were Cadillacs that weighed more than three tons—and those were cars. Cadillac trucks wouldn’t be along for another seven decades. In the ’30s, Cadillac propelled its biggest classics-to-be with V-12 and even V-16 engines. You could time a zero-to-60-mph run with an alarm clock, but that…
2017 Cadillac CTS

Feb 3rd
The Cadillac CTS V-Sport has been one of our favorite sports sedans for years now, having racked up three 10Best Cars trophies since it first arrived in 2014. The CTS didn’t make the cut this year, but, seeing as we don’t separate our annual award into categories, it wasn’t because a hotter new sports sedan arrived to claim its crown…
2015 Cadillac ATS

Feb 3rd
When the poet John Keats suggested that “a thing of beauty is a joy for ever,” it could well have been a description of the new Cadillac ATS coupe—had it not been published in 1818.Even with a Ouija board, we’ll never know whether Keats was given to prophecy. But in the case of the ATS we can augment Mr. Keats…
2016 Cadillac CTS

Feb 3rd
If any product deserves the lion’s share of credit for Cadillac’s ever-ongoing renaissance, it’s the CTS. It was a promising sports sedan when it debuted for 2003, but it took the refinements of the second generation launched five years later before it really delivered. Recognizing this, we named the CTS to our 10Best list in 2008, 2009, and 2010. The…
