Cadillac's Latest Crossover Coming This Fall

  Cadillac's Latest Crossover Coming This Fall Cadillac's latest crossover, the compact XT4, is arriving at dealers this fall. It will launch a new trim level strategy for the brand, in a new segment, and starts at under $40,000. The XT4 was revealed at the New York auto show last month. The small luxury crossover will come with a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is an all-new design making 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The gearbox is a nine-speed automatic, and all-wheel drive is offered. Cadillac's new trim strategy will give more distinction to the Premium Luxury and Sport trims that sit above the entry Luxury trim. The top models each have unique 20-inch wheel designs and the Sport model adds gloss black trim in place of the chrome on other trims, and a V-Series inspired mesh grille. Sport models will also have an available active suspension damping system. All XT4s will get an 8.0-inch touchscreen that debuts a new version of Cadillac's CUE infotainment system. It adds a rotary controller for volume and seek functions in place of the previous Cadillac touch-slide controls. When the XT4 arrives in the fall, prices will start at $39,900.

LOS ANGELES, California — A hybrid powertrain may seem at first like the antithesis of what a Cadillac should be. It is an American car after all, and that means V-8s, smokey burnouts, and letting the world know who is in charge.

  2020 Cadillac XT5 Spied Showing Off Some New Design Cues The SUV should make its debut early in 2019. With the debut of the new XT4 in New York, Cadillac also has plans to refresh its larger XT5 for 2020. Our spy photographers captured the new SUV on road new GM’s Milford Proving Grounds, hiding updated features both front and back, particularly the Escala-inspired grille and front fascia, and some revisions to the rear bumper. While most of the body goes unchanged, the front fascia is covered up by camouflage, hiding a design likely inspired by the Escala concept we saw in 2016 – which itself could hit the production line in 2021.

This common perception of motoring in the U.S. misses out on a grand history of quiet, comfortable, luxury cars purpose built to ply the nation's endless network of highways. Cadillac remembers, and that's why it sells the 2018 Cadillac CT6 2.0E Plug-In RWD.

Our short-term CT6 arrived with no options, but that doesn't mean it lacked important luxuries. Notable standard features include the 16-way adjustable heated and ventilated front seats and a powered rear-window shade,

In my week with the luxury hybrid, I made two 50-mile round trips to Long Beach and a 100-mile excursion to-and-from Oxnard among with my regular commuting to-and-from the office. Despite the addition of more than two hundred miles of bonus driving, I still only had to fill up at the end of my time with the car.

Three-Row Cadillac XT6 SUV Caught Testing

  Three-Row Cadillac XT6 SUV Caught Testing The new SUV should make its debut before the end of the year. First came the XT5 (succeeding the SRX, of course), followed recently by the smaller XT4. Now Cadillac is working on an SUV that’s even larger than the two. The aptly named Cadillac XT6 will join the range as the flagship SUV alongside the CT6 flagship sedan. Details on the new SUV are still pretty slim, but our spy photographers managed to capture the high-riding vehicle testing ahead of its debut. The three-row SUV will rival luxury vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Acura MDX, Infiniti QX60, and Audi Q7, among others.

Cadillac's fullsize luxury sedan owes its long-legged range to an 18.4-kWh lithium-ion battery that's tucked neatly between the rear seat and the trunk. The placement cuts into trunk space, which is down to 11 cu-ft. from the gas-only car's 15.3 cu-ft., but there's enough for grocery bags and my social media editor gear at the same time. The regenerative capacities of the brakes give the range a boost as well.

The gas engine and two rear motors offer a combined output of 335 hp and 432 lb-ft of torque, netting a 0-60 mph time of just 5.2 seconds. All that power is driven through the rear wheels via an electric variable transmission.

The result of this powertrain configuration is a car that's surprisingly fun to drive as there are loads of torque on offer, at least when there's electricity in the battery. When both electric and gas power turn the wheels at full chat, the CT6 breezes away from the traffic light with fierce efficiency. If the battery's dead, the gas engine revs high with significant droning and less of the usual briskness.

The Cadillac ATS Retires from the Canadian Market

  The Cadillac ATS Retires from the Canadian Market Last week, news started circulating about the demise of the ATS sedan, but GM Canada has just confirmed that the ATS coupe will be axed as well. In order to get its assembly plants ready for a new generation of Cadillac sedans, the compact ATS won’t be back for 2019. At least in Canada, as the coupe will remain on sale in the United States for the 2019 model year.The brand will rely on a lineup of three sedans, and the biggest one will remain the Cadillac CT6 that was introduced in 2016. Two new models will be launched in the coming months or in the next year, which will likely be called CT4 and CT6.

I had a blast chucking our rear-wheel drive tester into twisty corners and freeway on-ramps as I navigated the spider web of SoCal freeways. The CT6 2.0E is eager to play the steering communicates well at any speed. I found myself pushing for more performance at every open corner as the car's frisky personality egged me on to dig down into the bend.

On the freeway, the hybrid Caddy remains quiet even when the gas engine is kicks in. Ride quality feels athletic without being stiff or jarring, even as our tester tackled some poorly maintained roads. It serves as a great chauffer too—I drove a full car of passengers across the city during rush hour and they praised the big back seat and said they remained comfortable throughout the hour-long trek.

The carbon-fiber interior trim pieces featured woven-in copper that glitters in the light. There are some mid-grade plastics in a few spots in the cabin, which we found to be weak points in an otherwise well-designed ecosystem.

Plenty of technology comes standard on the CT6 plug-in to keep occupants entertained, relaxed, and safe. I could connect my personal and work phones to the 10-inch infotainment display with either Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. The touch screen is moderately responsive, and can also be controlled with a track pad just below the center arm rest.

On about 130,000 miles of US highways that Cadillac has mapped, the driver can take his or her hands off the wheel while Super Cruise handles steering, braking and acceleration. It uses a high-resolution GPS map, cameras and radar sensors. The driver, however, must be ready to take control at any moment; a small camera watches to make sure the driver is still paying attention to the car's surroundings.

There's a 360-degree parking-assist camera and plenty of driver assistance alerts. This includes lane departure, blind spot, and cross traffic warnings. The systems strike the perfect balance of sensitivity and don't notify the driver too early or late. Adaptive cruise control delivers smooth and natural braking and acceleration, offering a comfortable and luxurious experience akin to being chauffeured.

Our CT6 2.0E stickered at $76,090 after destination, which gives the Caddy a unique place in the small-but-growing field of hybrid luxury cars. Its most expensive rival is the 2018 Lexus LS 500h, which starts at $79,510, followed by the 2018 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid at $61,900—but neither is a plug-in hybrid. The smaller 2018 BMW 530e iPerformance sits at the bottom end of the price totem pole at $52,650.

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 2.0E Plug-In RWD can be seen as a harbinger of the new era of Cadillac.
