Cadillac introduced the fourth-generation Escalade. The all-new 2015 Cadillac Escalade is designed to establish new benchmarks for hand-tailored craftsmanship and technology. The new interior features cut-and-sewn and wrapped materials, with wood trim options chosen for elegance and authenticity. Seats were engineered to be more comfortable and sculpted in appearance. The new interior is dramatically quieter, too, thanks to a stronger new body structure, new and enhanced acoustic material, and Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology.
Cadillac revealed the Elmiraj Concept, a grand coupe expressing the pure enjoyment of driving and exploring new dimensions for Cadillac’s ongoing expansion. The Elmiraj Concept showcases a new vision for luxury driving and the top of the brand’s expanding range. At 205 inches (5207mm) in overall length, Elmiraj is four-seat coupe with presence and poise. Elmiraj is powered by a 4.5-liter twin turbocharged V8 delivering an estimated 500 hp. The engine takes the baseline technology from the new Cadillac Twin Turbo V6 featured in the upcoming 420-hp 2014 CTS Vsport edition, and expands it to the classic performance format of a V8 engine.
Cadillac’s first-ever Twin-Turbo, available on the 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport and XTS Vsport models in the U.S. this fall, kicks turbo lag to the curb with a unique combination of smaller turbochargers, top-mounted throttle body and shorter air pathways. The Cadillac Twin-Turbo V6’s patented air flow design, which eliminates circuitous heat-exchanger tubing, makes the most of engine packaging efficiency to improve torque response time over other air flow designs.
Cadillac XTS will offer more power and torque for 2014. Starting in August, the all-new Cadillac Twin Turbo V6 will go into production as an optional engine for the 2014 XTS.
The third-generation Cadillac CTS sedan arrives in dealerships this fall with an all-new design that is longer, lower and leaner. The new 2014 Cadillac CTS is five inches longer, expanding interior space, but also 244 pounds lighter than the previous model. It is expected to be the lightest car in its segment.
In 1901 Henry Leland had built a single-cylinder engine at his company Leland and Faulconer. The new engine was based on the plans of Oldsmobile founder Ransom E. Olds. With a background in manufacturing fine tools, Leland had a passion for precision engineering. He improved the engine to produce an astonishing 10.3 horsepower instead of 3.7 hp. Olds had no use for this engine, because his cars were simply unable to cope with all the horsepower it generated. As a result, Henry M. Leland and partners founded Cadillac out of the ashes of the Henry Ford Company (formerly Detroit Automobile Company) on August 22, 1902.
GM announced the new RemoteLink Key Fob Services program for OnStar-equipped 2014 Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac models. It is available even if the owner don’t want to have any additional OnStar services. Thirty-six 2014 model year GM vehicles are compatible with the RemoteLink mobile app.
Cadillac’s year-to-date sales increase of 38 percent will be the brand’s largest since 1976, making the 110-year old brand the fastest growing major automotive brand in the U.S. The Cadillac ATS sport sedan has been instrumental in attracting new buyers. Roughly 70 percent of ATS buyers are choosing their first Cadillac. The XTS luxury sedan, introduced in the summer of 2012, had its best retail sales in May. Cadillac’s total sedan portfolio is up 122 percent so far in 2013.
The upcoming all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS luxury sport sedan combines light-emitting diode and high intensity discharge lights to create a sleeker new look for Cadillac, befitting the new sedan’s distinction of being the lightest car in its class.
