Cadillac XT5 Crossover to debut in November Dubai Auto Show

Cadillac's SRX Crossover is finally getting a successor. Now half a decade old, the luxury crossover SUV has been hailed by some to be the marques best selling car, outperforming its sedans. As such, a lot is hinging on the XT5, which even Cadillac poises as the first of a new generation of crossovers. Now partially unveiled and teased, the XT5 is scheduled to publicly debut at the Dubai Auto Show in November, and it will be doing so with a little fashionista flair courtesy of Public School.

Cadillac’s 2016 CTS-V ushers in revamped CUE

Your first (and second, and probably third) impression after driving the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is likely to be "wow, that's fast," but the 640HP car showcases another type of speed. Caddy's oft-maligned CUE infotainment has also been supercharged, with the new 8-inch touchscreen system addressing complaints around speed as well as paving the way for platforms like CarPlay and Android Auto. Question is, has Cadillac done enough?

Super-Sedan Showdown: Cadillac CTS-V, M5, Tesla, or something else? [Poll]

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V has landed with a 200 mph splash among today's super-sedans. As decisions go, it would be a nice problem to have: which of the current breed of high-performance four-doors would be sitting in your garage, were you to have a roughly $100k budget and a taste for motoring? Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz deliver the obvious options, into which the newest V Series car wades, but the Caddy isn't the only wildcard. Head on past the jump to place your vote!

2016 Cadillac CTS-V First Drive – 640 all-American horses

2016 Cadillac CTS-V First Drive – 640 all-American horses

There's a moment, just after you start up the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V, when the seat belt gently contracts around you, almost like the 640 horsepower super-sedan is giving you a hug. It's a reassuring gesture, though a little at odds with the near-simultaneous gurgle from the engine as the exhaust valves flutter. "Sure, I'm 16.5 feet long, weigh more than four thousand pounds, and will catapult to sixty miles per hour in 3.7 seconds and then run all the way to 200 mph," the Caddy is saying, "but I don't want to kill you in the process."

Cadillac integrates CarPlay and Android Auto into 2016 models

Cadillac integrates CarPlay and Android Auto into 2016 models

Not long after Chevrolet said it was adding support for Apple's CarPlay and Android Auto to 14 new models, GM's luxury brand, Cadillac, has announced the same, bringing the two infotainment systems to their 2016 model year lineup.

2016 Cadillac ATS-V First-Drive – BMW baiting

2016 Cadillac ATS-V First-Drive – BMW baiting

The 2016 Cadillac ATS-V is not your grandpa’s Caddy. Neither is it the BMW M3 or M4, despite the team responsible for the sedan and coupe duo admitting that the Bavarians were the primary target. V-Series has been Cadillac’s sledgehammer retort to German Autobahn-bruisers since 2004, and the ATS-V is the third generation of car to wear the badge. It’s straightforward in principle: take an existing Caddy, put it on a diet, slam a beefy engine under the hood, and market it as American power. Now, for the first time, the V-Series line is splitting, and it’s doing so in a mighty interesting way.

GM slashes ELR and Spark EV to regen green auto

GM is slashing EV and hybrid car pricing at both the budget and luxury ends of the spectrum, as it attempts to spur last-gasp sales while new models are readied. At the fancy end of the scale, Cadillac has made further reductions on its distinctive but little-loved ELR hybrid coupe, a car which has struggled to find buyers since its debut two years ago. Meanwhile, down at the compact level, Chevrolet is dropping Spark EV pricing in an attempt to get more drivers into its all-electric city car.

Inside CT6: The Cadillac putting German luxe on notice

Inside CT6: The Cadillac putting German luxe on notice

It's hard to overstate quite how important the 2016 CT6 is to Cadillac. Absent for some time from the full-size luxury segment, Cadillac needs a flagship that can not only take on BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and others in features, but convince drivers that its brand of American Luxury deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the Germans. And while toothy BMW-baiting monsters like the CTS-V may fill a niche, there's nothing like a vast uber-luxe sedan to make your case.
