Cadillac flying car and autonomous pod concepts hint at electric roadmap

Cadillac flying car and autonomous pod concepts hint at electric roadmap

Cadillac may have its Celestiq hyper-luxury EV in mind for the near future, but two new concepts - an autonomous lounge pod and a flying car - at CES 2021 today show it's looking further ahead in electrification, too. The Cadillac Personal Autonomous Vehicle and Cadillac Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) Personal Drone aren't exactly close to a commercial launch, but they're part of the automaker's vision of how even those who don't want to drive an electric car themselves may still find some EV in their future.

Cadillac Celestiq teases electric ultra-luxury and a huge gamble

Cadillac has teased its second all-electric vehicle, with the Cadillac Celestiq aiming to push the automaker back into the echelons of ultra-luxury. Where the Lyriq promises an all-electric take on the crossovers that have been such a success for Cadillac in recent years, Celestiq will be more akin to a high-end sedan, albeit with an Ultium-powered twist.

Cadillac got a bad reputation for infotainment – here’s how its Lyriq EV will change that

Cadillac's Lyriq all-electric luxury crossover isn't expected to hit dealerships until late 2022, but that hasn't stopped the automaker from previewing some of what should make the cabin of its new EV special. As you'd expect, there's no shortage of displays inside the Ultium-based SUV, but what may set the Lyriq apart is just what they're running.

2021 Cadillac Escalade Diesel First Drive – Torque Tease

2021 Cadillac Escalade Diesel First Drive –  Torque Tease

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade diesel is no less vast than its gas sibling, no less lavish, and actually no more expensive, and that presents buyers of big, luxury SUVs with a conundrum. An Escalade with the Duramax turbo-diesel under the hood costs the same, from $77,490 plus destination, and aside from the 600D badge on the rear there's no visible sign that you opted not to get the V8.

Cadillac taps 3D printing for its most potent Blackwing cars

Cadillac taps 3D printing for its most potent Blackwing cars

GM is using functional 3D printed parts for the first time on production cars, with the upcoming 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing performance sedans set to include several pieces that eschew traditional manufacturing. While commonplace on prototypes - where automakers turn to sizable 3D printers to fast-track the design process - 3D printing techniques have proved slower to arrive in vehicles actually destined for dealership lots.

Cadillac Super Cruise vs Tesla Autopilot test asks the big attention question

Cadillac's Super Cruise has once again beat out Tesla's Autopilot in independent tests of driver-assistance systems, with Consumer Reports weighing in again on the controversial topic. Seventeen different systems - combining adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping - from mainstream and luxury automakers were put through their paces, the results demonstrating that expectations about, and for, the tech still vary considerably.

2021 Cadillac Escalade First Drive Review – The Recipe for American Luxury

2021 Cadillac Escalade First Drive Review – The Recipe for American Luxury

In the good old days - and by that I mean "before the arrival of the 2021 Escalade" - you bought Cadillac's big, attention-seeking SUV mainly for the fact that it was, well, big and attention-seeking. Times change, though, and while the new Escalade is no smaller or more frugal (Surprise! It's larger and thirstier!) it does finally bring more to the table than curb presence alone.

Cadillac Enhanced Super Cruise First Ride – 2021 Escalade, take the wheel

Cadillac Enhanced Super Cruise First Ride – 2021 Escalade, take the wheel

I'm trying to watch the light bar embedded in the 2021 Cadillac Escalade's steering wheel, and the side mirror as we glide between lanes, and simultaneously look over my shoulder in case the new, Enhanced Super Cruise system has somehow screwed up and missed a fast-approaching car hurtling toward us as it shows off GM's latest tech advance. I needn't have worried: the light bar glows a constant green showing Super Cruise is active, the new radar sensors have mapped out a safe place to maneuver, and the whole thing seems eminently... normal.

Cadillac has given the 2021 CT4 and 2021 CT5 a welcome tech upgrade, with more modern dashboards being finally joined by Enhanced Super Cruise. GM's hands-free assisted driving system for divided highways is gaining the ability to automatically change lanes, with an eye-monitoring camera making sure that the person behind the wheel is still attentive even if they're not touching it.
