2021 CADILLAC ESCALADE TEST DRIVE BY CAR CRITIC STEVE HAMMES.
GM’s extra-large, body-on-frame SUVs have all recently undergone comprehensive transformations but this one is the headliner. It’s America’s aspirational SUV and has been for over 20 years. I’ve driven all of them, but this 5th generation Escalade is by far the most ambitious evolution. Bigger, techier, and far more sophisticated, this is the Escalade at the pinnacle of success. It’s a 6-figure, ostentatious symbol of over-the-top American living where 16mpg matters not and supersized is a way of life. But this one also sweats the details with attention paid to even the minutest particulars.
2020 Cadillac CT4 V Series Review By Car Critic Steve Hammes.
While the auto industry as a whole remains fixated on pumping out more and more SUVs, Cadillac’s showing some love to their car lineup. New names, new engines and a new definition of the letter V, this here is the all-new CT4 V Series.
Much like the AMG-lite models at Mercedes and the midrange M versions at BMW, these new V-Series sedans come with increased output and a host of performance mods to give owners the V look and some V zip without the big V price tag.
America’s aspirational SUV has received its overdue makeover. The all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade is taking bold in a smarter direction with dramatic increases in both passenger and cargo space capitalizing on its longer wheelbase and new independent rear suspension. With people’s knees no longer in their faces, 3rd row legroom has increased a whopping 10+”. Regular and extended length models are still offered. Pricing has yet to be announced but the Escalade’s on-sale date will be later this year. https://testdrivenow.com/2021-cadillac-escalade-first-look/
It’s been a little while since Cadillac offered a car-based 3-row crossover in their lineup but the all-new XT6 is here to fill that vacancy. So, when the Escalade is more than you need Caddy now has another head-turning SUV with a more palatable price tag.
MSRP as-tested: $73,040
CADILLAC INTRODUCES THE FIRST EVER CT4 SPORT SEDAN. “The first-ever Cadillac CT4 changes the sport-luxury sedan game, fusing technology and performance in a distinctive design for customers who want to express themselves,” said Melissa Grady, Cadillac chief marketing officer. “Because the CT4 is equal parts technology and performance, we wanted to reveal it in a way that would stimulate the senses and evoke emotions our customers might feel when behind the wheel.”
The 2020 CT4 will be available for ordering later this year. It will be manufactured at GM’s Lansing Grand River facility, which received a $211-million investment to build the next-generation Cadillac sedans. Pricing and additional information will be announced closer to the start of regular production. https://testdrivenow.com/ct4-sport-sedan/
