2014 Cadillac ATS: Cadillac Earns An “A”

I was on the press drive to launch the original Cadillac CTS way back in 2002, and they described it to us as a 4-series- Cadillac was aiming at BMW, but somewhat generally as opposed to lining up a direct…

2014 Cadillac ELR: A High (Voltage) Roller

It’s wasn’t by some random act that Cadillac invited us to drive the new ELR coupe in Palm Springs, California- the desert playground renowned for high style and mid-century design was chosen deliberately to serve as a backdrop for the new line of Cadillacs, and the ELR in particular.

2014 Cadillac CTS Whips The Germans

The fact that the 2014 Cadillac CTS won Motor Trend magazine’s Car of the Year is not astonishing: the last-generation CTS did the same thing in 2008. But this year, it won against redesigned Mercedes E-Class and BMW 5-Series sedans, making a frontal attack on the German Bismarcks. It also beat the Corvette Stingray, Mercedes S-Class, Infiniti Q50, Mazda3, Mazda6, and Kia Cadenza. Take a breath.

Detroit Brings The Heat To 2014: A Recap Of The North American International Auto Show

The North American International Auto Show began with the Chevy Silverado and Corvette winning North American Car and Truck of the year, then heated up through unveilings of cars as diverse as the next Honda Fit, Hyundai Genesis, Volkswagen Beetle Dune Concept, Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge, and these noteworthy rides:

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

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.

2014 Cadillac XTS Is Sexy, Like A Rock Star

Cadillacs are always Cadillacs, but they do evolve. Whatever dust-ridden image you had of Cadillac was blown afar with the 556 horsepower CTS-V. The marque’s credentials were bolstered by the latest ATS/CTS sport sedans and 2015 Escalade. And a new Vsport edition of the 2014 XTS hides a surprise.

2013 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe: Sexy, Fast, And A Bit Over The Top

There are no doubts to be had about the 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe and its awesome capabilities, which rival those of most any supercar. So, if you’re a muscle Mary when it comes to car performance, we assure you that a CTS-V will cater to your every sinewy whim and desire. The biggest surprise about all its power is that the CTS-V puts it down on the pavement with grace and elegance instead of like some testosterone fueled, steroid enhanced meathead.

2013 Cadillac Escalade: Plenty Of Cushion For Pushin’ You Around Town

The Cadillac Escalade is the Kim Kardashian of the auto world.

You know what I mean. It’s got great bone structure, it looks fantastic on the outside, [insert suggestive interior joke here], but it clearly craves attention. It’s flashy and a little bit trashy — and it’s perfectly okay with that.

2013 Detroit Auto Show: The Winners

Last week’s 2013 Detroit Auto Show was a whirlwind of premieres and press conferences. Thankfully, the long, three-day weekend gave me time to reflect and choose some winners and losers of the lot. Below, you’ll find my best-in-show list. Scroll to the bottom of the page for a full gallery — and stay tuned this afternoon for the, um, not so fortunate.

Detroit Auto Show: The Cadillac Of Plug-in Hybrids Debuts In The Motor City

With the flashy and much-hyped introduction of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, General Motors could have coasted through the rest of this year’s Detroit Auto Show with relative ease. Instead, the U.S. auto giant took a step in a new direction, at least when it comes to imbuing the Cadillac luxury division with green vehicle credentials.
