Let’s Talk CT6

On March 31st, 2015, in the evening before the opening of the New York Auto Show press days, Cadillac unveiled its long awaited flagship. In many ways it turned out to be what we expected…in others, not as much. As expected, the new flagship is direct competition with the German big sedans.  However, that’s far […]

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 […]

Motor Trend Interview with Johan de Nysschen

Motor Trend’s Scott Burgess picked the head of Cadillac’s brain about product choices that might be made by the brand in the coming years. 

Pretty enlightening. 

I wonder what the Corvette team thinks of his discussing a mid-engined Vette as though it was going to happen.

Cadillac Releases Details of New XT5

2017-Cadillac-XT5-004Today Cadillac released details of the brand new XT5 crossover. Replacing the SRX and competing directly with industry standards as such the Lexus RX and Audi Q5, the XT5 continues Cadillac’s recent tradition of bringing out new product at industry leading low weight – a move that contributes to Cadillac’s class-leading driving dynamics.

The new XT5 cuts 278 pounds over the SRX that precedes it and is 100 pounds lighter than the Audi Q5 while being a larger vehicle overall. Compared to the best-selling Lexus RX350, the XT5 comes in 223 pounds lighter in front-drive guise, 110 in all-wheel drive form. The XT5 also bring a significant 3.2 inches more rear seat legroom than its predecessor while also offering a sliding and reclining features as well. Unfortunately we don’t have the specifics yet to compare against the competition. This information likely will drop when the XT5 debuts at this month’s Los Angeles Auto Show.

Power will come from the latest version of the 3.6l V-6 with start-stop and cylinder deactivation in the US market. This latest 3.6 will supply 310hp. Chinese consumers will also be able to choose an XT5 powered by Cadillac’s 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder. Both engines put power to the front or all-wheels through an 8-speed automatic. Fuel economy figures will be announced closer to the on-sale date.

Production begins in spring 2016 as a 2017 model year.

CT6 Priced and is Relative Bargain

IMG_1353After seeing recent sedans priced right on top of the competition and not getting traction in the marketplace, Cadillac has decided to be more aggressive with the new CT6 flagship. 

When the new Uber-Caddy goes on sale in March 2016, it will carry the following starting prices:

  • CT6 2.0L Turbo – Starting at $53,495
  • CT6 3.6L V6 with AWD – Starting at $55,495
  • CT6 3.0L Twin Turbo V6 with AWD – Starting at $64,395

Note: each price does not include the $995 destination charge. 

This could cause a bit of a problem for the CTS which exceeds the base CT6 starting price as soon as you opt for the 3.6 V6 and quickly exceeds the twin turbo big Cadillac’s price if you choose premium paint, interior trim, and upgraded wheels. 

Our guess is a price cut on CTS is in the wings to rationalize the price points. 

XT5 to Debut at Both Dubai and LA Auto Shows

IMG_4773-0.jpgCadillac has confirmed that the replacement for the SRX, the first utility vehicle to carry Cadillac’s new XT nomenclature, the XT5 will debut at the Dubai auto show in November.

Shortly after, it will see its North American debut at the Los Angeles auto show.

The XT5 will be badged a 2017 model, meaning it will hit showrooms during 2016. It is likely to reach production in the first half of the year. A firmer date should come with its official showings on the auto show circuit.
