The 2014 Cadillac SRX Brings Its A-Game To Lexus, Mercedes, And BMW

2014 Cadillac SRX

First, let’s just admit that while we drive a lot of SUVs and crossovers (honestly, we can’t think of one we haven’t tested), rarely if ever do we find ourselves inspired by one of these vehicles to the point that we made up far off destinations just so we could spend more time driving it. But we recently had a 2014 Cadillac SRX delivered with more sharp lines to its style statement that a fall line at Dolce & Gabbana.

Cool Cadillacs And Bad Costumes

Thumbnail image for LetsMakeADeal.jpg Believe it or not, there was a time in America when Audi and BMW were little-known brands, Mercedes-Benz was considered a rare exotic and a big, shiny Cadillac was the car most American’s aspired to own. Don’t believe me? Just look at the reactions of these lucky contestants who appeared on the popular 70s game show Let’s Make a Deal. Thanks to the hard work of the lads at MuscleCarFilms.com, this collage of classic Cadillac clips not only shows off some real beauties, it sheds new light on the art of minimalist set design. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the male contestants (and host Monty Hall), who are all in need of a Cadillac-sized Queer-Eye makeover.

Cadillac comes out during the NY Auto Show

Cadillac_nyias201_nightout.jpgIn a first-of-its-kind event – and something we hope to see a lot more of in the future – Cadillac hosted a reception geared towards the LGBT community during this year’s New York International Auto Show. Gays and lesbians from a wide range of professional backgrounds rubbed shoulders, talked cars, and clinked cocktail glasses at this ground-breaking soiree.

Seeking to counter what one sassy guest referred to as GM’s “old white guys in suits” image, Cadillac chose the New York show and Jacob Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan to come roaring out of the closet.

2010 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum

So well established as the ultimate SUV, Escalade is the only Cadillac with a non-ambiguously-lettered nomenclature. It summarily displaced Range Rover as the preferred over-luxuriated truck for Hollywood stars, corporate elite, and anybody else wishing to drive a capable and stylish wagon. Well into its second generation, minor complaints about the Escalade’s interior trim quality are slashed with one word: Platinum. It is Cadillac to the MAX.

2010 Cadillac SRX

COOL CADDY CROSSOVER by Casey Williams Cadillac and the 1950s are inextricable – both having come from the age of rock-and-roll, pompadours, pink trousers, and some of the most memorable voices of the last century. Elvis, Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and other aspiring superstars drove Cadillacs. Befinned, bechromed, … Continue reading

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Debut

Cadillac used the Detroit show to officially launch their loosely-held secret – the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. The CTS already looked the part but with the advent of the V-Series, it has even more performance to backup its dirty-hot looks. On sale in early summer of 2010, the CTS-V coupe … Continue reading

2010 Cadillac SRX

Thumbnail image for 2010 Cadillac SRXI’m driving a 2010 Cadillac SRX over the Xmas holiday and thus far it has proved to be a good, if not excellent, package. I am piloting the SRX Premium FWD which is essentially loaded. The only options are AWD and the yet-to-be released 2.8L V6 Turbo engine. It is a strikingly good looking package that hits the crossroads of distinctive and luxurious. In my opinion, it is the best looking iteration of Cadillac’s design theme.
