Cadillac

Cadillac's junior Blackwing sedan will go down as one the best driver's cars of all time.Stand around our cluttered, oil-soaked office garage and the conversation will eventually turn to tales of BMW's E90 M3. Sold from 2008 to 2012, the M car's legend continues to grow because subsequent M3s couldn't quite re-create the E90's magic blend of size, power, handling, and feel. In a turn of events unthinkable 20 years ago, Cadillac took up the mantle with the ATS-V and now the CT4-V Blackwing. The smaller of the two Blackwings, the CT4-V drives, handles, and performs as if Caddy ignored…
If you want a new rear-drive sports sedan with a supercharged V-8 and a manual transmission, go get a Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing before it disappears forever.The Norse myth of Ragnarök tells of a massive battle that takes the lives of several gods and destroys the world in a cataclysmic flood. What follows is a rebirth that brings something better. One era ends and a new one begins. Bad things happen, but be hopeful and pass the lutefisk. You can think of Cadillac's CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing—the final gas-powered sedans to wear a V badge—as the last of the old…
ATS-V who? Cadillac finesses its finesse machine to a transcendental level. Imagine telling someone when the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V was new what the world would look like in 2021, when the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing arrives. Would they believe many major automotive brands plan to sunset their gasoline-powered offerings in about another decade? Or that manual transmissions in performance sedans are nearing total extinction—including in the ultimate version of the BMW M3, the Competition model? How about that BMW has also abandoned its traditionally understated German exteriors for a brash, porcine front clip? And of course, the reality that the…
The Lyriq electric SUV and Celestiq electric sedan are central to Cadillac’s EV charge. The Lyriq will be followed by the Celestiq, a limolike four-door sedan that will take over as Cadillac's flagship. The interior is intended to coddle chauffeur-driven passengers in the second row under a transparent, four-quadrant glass roof. Up front, a large dashboard screen stretches the width of the cabin. It will feature all-wheel drive, a hatchback cargo opening, and four-wheel steering. WHY IT MATTERS: General Motors wants Cadillac to lead its EV push, so every one of the brand's new models moving forward will be electric.…
Gasoline or diesel? In the new Escalade, there’s no wrong way to go. Here's the good news for full-size luxury SUV buyers: Not only does the 2021 Cadillac Escalade diesel drive nearly identically to the excellent, gasoline-chugging model, it also costs the exact same amount, is just as impressive inside, and gets notably better fuel economy. The bad news? Well, there isn't any, unless you're a hardcore V-8 partisan. Added as part of the Escalade's wholesale redesign for 2021, the diesel version lacks the gasoline model's ferocious growl under full-bore acceleration, as well as its mid-range and top-end muscle during…
