Cadillac ELR Ad

Airing during the Olympics is this 60-second spot that hammers home the work ethic of the US and parlays that into the reward that is the Cadillac ELR.

It will be interesting to watch and see if the message translates into sales.

Black Friday – As in Burning Rubber

Andy Pilgrim, of Cadillac’s racing team fame, has taken an ATS to the track for a little hooning.

2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport Circles the ‘Ring in 8:14.10

2014 Cadillac CTS VsportIt wasn’t that many years ago that the CTS-V set a scorching lap-time at the fabled Nurburgring, in Germany of 7 minutes 59 seconds. Set by a 556hp monster of a car, it was/is decidedly not a Cadillac suited for most customers.

Enter the new Vsport trim, introduced with the 2014 CTS, packs a twin-turbo 3.6l V-6 with 420hp and an automatic transmission only (8-speeds, in this case) is aimed at CTS buyers that want sporty but not as hard an edge as the V-series model.

So, what does an automatic and 130hp fewer get you on the 12.9 miles and 154 turns of the ‘Ring?

8 minutes, 14.10 seconds. So, 15 seconds slower.

Seems to us that the Vsport is quite the car, but also it suggests some amazing things about the upcoming CTS-V (if it comes to market with similar power as before, it should destroy the previous V’s time along with the times of many other uber-sedans from the competition.

However, the Vsport also previews Cadillac’s new, higher price-point for the CTS. Vsports start at $59995 – or barely 3000 under the current CTS-V. This suggests the next V will be running in the 70k+ range to start. Not quite the bargain as before, but it will give the ATS some breathing room (the current CTS and the new ATS are way too close in price and size – the new CTS is bigger and the price-tag reflects that as well)

Similarly, we expect the ATS-V, which should pack its own version of the twin-turbo 3.6 will run sub-8 minute times as well.

It’s a good time to be shopping sporty Cadillacs.
