2016 Cadillac ATS-V Review

2016 Cadillac ATS-V Review

Ambition gurgles at the core of Cadillac, but it takes more than bold words and marketing promise to make a car that gives the Germans sleepless nights. On the one hand you have the CT6, a smartly designed walk through what "American luxury" means to the modern driver, while on the other you have this, the 2016 ATS-V Sedan, a fire-breathing assault on contemporary classics like the BMW M3.

Cadillac Escala Concept teases CT6’s super-luxe big brother

Cadillac has slipped the wraps off its latest concept car, the Escala, at Pebble Beach this evening, and it's a beguiling vision of the brand's next super-luxury sedan. Promising to wrap up both the future of Cadillac's design and technological systems into one sinuous vehicle, the Escala may not reach dealer forecourts in quite this form, but it's certainly a heavy-handed hint as to the American automaker's upcoming assault on Mercedes-Benz's S Class, BMW's 7 Series, and Audi's A8.

2016 Lexus GS F in Super-Sedan Showdown with BMW, Audi, and Cadillac

2016 Lexus GS F in Super-Sedan Showdown with BMW, Audi, and Cadillac

The 2016 Lexus GS F breaks new ground for the Japanese luxury brand, giving it its fire-breathing V8 mid-size sport sedan in a bid to contend with the European all-stars that have long dominated this corner of the automotive industry. At first glance, everything appears to be in order: 467 horsepower from a 5.0-liter eight-cylinder monster (shared with the RC F coupe), the ability to sprint to 60-mph in a quick 4.5 seconds, and the kind of extroverted good looks that do the companies trapezoidal grille justice (especially when ordered in eye-searing orange).

2016 Cadillac CTS-V Review: Darth Vader’s ride

2016 Cadillac CTS-V Review: Darth Vader’s ride

Whenever I walked up to the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V in a parking lot, I heard the echoes of the Imperial March from Star Wars in my head. Only true American muscle aficionados may understand the potency and engineering prowess that goes into turning Caddy's comfortable CTS sedan into a four-wheeled Death Star, yet it only takes one brief spin - preferably on the safety of a race track, but an abandoned country road will do - to comprehend why this supercharged, super-aggressive, super-speed monster can give the best of the Autobahn-busters sleepless nights.

2017 Cadillac XT5 First Drive

Regime change doesn't have to be bloody. Sometimes, the weight of new ideas alone is sufficient to push out the lingering elements of old-school thinking, creating a void where innovation floods in to fill the vacuum with a renewed sense of purpose. The 2017 Cadillac XT5 crossover represents the latest, and perhaps capstone chapter in the automaker's near-total makeover from luxury also-ran to legitimate contender for high end family dollars - and the only shots fired are in the direction of Tokyo, where the Lexus RX 350 finds itself facing its toughest challenger in over a decade.

The Technology of the Cadillac CT6

Today's luxury cars can't just be leather and wood-filled clubhouses, they need to have more tech than NASA, too. Cadillac isn't shy when it comes to raiding the engineering labs, and so the new 2016 CT6 has more than its share of gadgetry and geek-appeal, whether you're at the wheel or just enjoying the ride.

Cadillac will delay one of the flagship features on its new CT6 luxury sedan, deeming Super Cruise not ready in time for the car's fall 2016 release.
