2014 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Road Test Review

Something about driving a Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon makes you swagger when you step out of it. After parking the super Caddy, you'll find yourself walking into places with an authoritative air, as if you own the world. It has been said power corrupts, and while we wouldn't characterize the feeling as corrupted per se, the phrase "infused with attitude" does resonate quite vigorously in this circumstance.

And, IT'S A STATION WAGON!!!

Like so many high performance cars, the Cadillac can get you from Adele to Beyonce with insane quickness. However, unlike numerous other high performance cars, the CTS-V Sport Wagon accomplishes this with a sophistication completely belying its amazing potential. While the angular, sharply drawn lines of this unorthodox five-door would lead you to imagine a harsh ride and an all-enveloping exhaust note, the CTS-V Sport Wagon instead displays polish, sophistication, and refinement. And, as if all of this isn't good enough, when you factor in Read Full Story

2014 Cadillac CTS VSport Road Test Review

Did you hear the news? Cadillac has come up with an absolutely brilliant way of enticing you out of $75k and leaving you grinning from ear to ear about it. It's called the 2014 CTS VSport, and it's friggin' fabulous!

The other news is the 2014 CTS, a car that's completely redesigned from the ground up. I loved the previous-generation CTS, especially in Sport Wagon trim. That particular CTS body style is still available, as is a two-door coupe, but the four-door has been totally reworked to make way for the more compact ATS that slotted underneath last year. Now the CTS sedan has grown to take on the A6s, 5 Series and E-Classes of the world, let alone the TL, GS, Q70, XF, et al, and it's fully up to the task.

It's been lengthened by 127 millimetres (5 inches), albeit only 28 mm (1.1 inches) of that is between the wheels, the majority hanging over the rear end to enlarge the trunk. It's lower than the outgoing model too, by 20 mm (0.8 of an inch), which aids in handling, Read Full Story

Cadillac to limit 2015 CTS-V Coupe to 500 special-edition examples

With every new BMW 3 (or 4) Series debut, each updated C-Class launch, and all new Audi A4 and A5 arrivals, special M, AMG and RS versions soon follow. The same holds true for Cadillac and its V series. Now with the all-new CTS in our midst, including the fabulous twin-turbo V6-powered CTS V Sport, we've been told a new super-powerful CTS-V will debut sometime next year, but before this occurs Cadillac will entertain us with a special edition of its much-lauded CTS-V Coupe.

Unlike the four-door CTS, the CTS Coupe hasn't received a major update just yet. The chiseled two-door is still a sleek piece of contemporary rolling art, mind you, and the CTS-V Coupe a variation of that art in hyper-speed, so why not give it one last hurrah before it makes way for an entirely new iteration.

"The special edition is a stepping stone to the next-generation V-Series, which will move to the next level with more dynamic design and technical sophistication," said Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing Read Full Story

2014 Cadillac ATS 3.6L Luxury AWD Road Test Review

Never mess with success? That's a mantra oft spoken, but Cadillac isn't listening. Only after a single year of robust sales, the American premium brand has been tweaking its highly touted new ATS. No, they haven't changed its creased and folded styling one iota, thank goodness, but they've been adding features such as a cool new frameless rearview mirror, a new larger-diameter leather-wrapped steering wheel on cars with paddle-shifters, a 110-volt power outlet on the rear of the centre console of models with the CUE infotainment system and the Navigation package, and Intellibeam automatic high-beam control to the Driver Awareness and Driver Assist packages. Of course, new exterior paint hues have been added to the colour palette too, including Phantom Grey Metallic, Mocha Steel Metallic, Majestic Plum Metallic and Red Obsession Tintcoat.

My ATS 3.6L Luxury AWD tester was finished with none of the above, but rather a very elegant White Diamond Tricoat. Then again it did include Read Full Story
