CTS Getting New Cadillac Badge

Cadillac’s wreath-less badge debuted on the, not yet for sale, ATS coupe. It appears from these shots over at AutoEvolution that the new badge may quickly make it across the line. This is the less than one year old CTS and it is already sporting a new grill featuring the new badge. We expect that […]

ELR Launch Lease Deal

Cadillac ELR Launch Lease Deal Announced

Cadillac is pushing the ELR hard recently with Olympic advertising to get the car into the hearts and minds of luxury buyers. Now, Cadillac has dropped the other shoe with a fairly aggressive lease deal of 699/month for 39 months with 4900/down with a 32500-mile allowance (pretty low monthly miles given a normal driver will be […]

2016 Cadillac LTS

Cadillac “LTS” Spied

Chris Doane and Car and Driver have spied the new Cadilac large sedan undergoing testing. This is not the new XTS (a car expected to see no second generation). Instead, Cadillac is building a new large rear-drive platform dubbed “Omega” and styled in some ways to resemble the recent Elmiraj concept. Cadillac trademarked the LTS […]

2015 Cadillac Escalade

2015 Cadillac Escalade Pricing Announced

Cadillac has announced pricing of the 2015 Escalade and it follows their recent trend toward pricing in line with competition rather than trying to compete on price. Starting price of the latest Escalade is $72,690 (including destination), an increase over the prior generation of $3725. This places the Escalade in the thick of the luxury […]

2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe

2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe

Today, Cadillac debuted the coupe version of the ATS as well as their new ‘wreath-less’ logo. Featuring the same wheelbase as the sedan but a wider track, the coupe has unique stampings for roof, doors, rear fenders and trunk lid. 18″ wheels are standard as is the 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder (bye bye 2.5, at least […]

Holy Crap! – Cadillac Names Johan de Nysschen new President

JohandeNysschenOnly 2 years after being lured away from his post as Audi’s US head to re-shape Nissan’s Infiniti brand, Johan de Nysschen has been hired to lead GM’s luxury brand.

He will replace Bob Ferguson, who will return to his post at GM as their chief lobbyist. This is a win for Cadillac as the main criticism of Mr. Ferguson has been that he was not a ‘product guy’ and de Nysschen certainly is.

In his departure from Infiniti, he cited a desire to move back to the United States from the Asian brand’s Hong Kong headquarters.

There is a very good chance that Cadillac will be a better fit and will take advantage of Mr de Nysschen’s knowledge of the US market, buyer’s desires, as well as positioning Cadillac more powerfully against the German rivals. Continue Reading →

Lambda-Based ‘Escalade’ Scrapped

Cadillac has been considering a unibody crossover based on GM’s Lambda platform (Chevy Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia) for some time.

Lambda CadillacRumor had them waiting for the next major re-engineering of the platform so they could have more freedom to add power trains beyond the current chassis’ 3.6 V-6.

There were even rumors that they would abandon the body-on-frame chassis and badge the new entry Escalade.

However, latest rumors have Cadillac management walking away from that plan largely due to expectations that they would be too late to that party to be a serious player.

So, with this change, we expect an ATS-based small crossover, the SRX, and the Escalade to be Cadillac’s ultimate people-mover lineup.

Expect the new small entry and new SRX to bow in the next 2-3 years.

May 9-10 Americana at Brand

Next CTS-V Caught Testing

Expected to go toe-to-toe with the new BMW M5 and Mercedes E63 AMG, the new CTS-V is expected to pack a supercharged 6.2l V8 similar to the one in the recently announced Z06 Corvette.

This will likely endow the V with upwards of 600hp.

Expect the new V to be available in sedan body style only, like the new CTS that has dropped its coupe and wagon variants. Sales should start in 2015 as a 2016 model.

Enjoy.

Manual Equipped ATS has Stalling Issue

It appears there is a possible new issue vexing the ATS 2.0T with the manual transmission.

As you might recall, initial reviews of the ATS largely raved about the car’s handling but panned the manual transmission’s feel. These reports sent Cadillac back to the drawing board for bushing and shifter calibration to the point of ATS manuals being unavailable during the initial weeks of sales.

Now, it appears the cars have an engine computer glitch that causes cars to unexpectedly stall in neutral or with the clutch depressed.

This is apparently corrected with a recently released software fix, but hasn’t yet made it to recall status.

If you are having stalling issues with your manual ATS, get thee to your dealer ASAP before you find yourself stuck at a light with a non-running car.
