Cadillac Announces First Road Test For Celestiq EV, Debuts Spacey Camo Wrap

The 2023 Cadillac Celestiq made waves several months ago when the luxury brand unveiled the Celestiq near-production concept. It looked like it leaped off the pages of a designer magazine and had luxury trappings that firmly put it in the crosshairs of Rolls Royce and Bentley. The one key problem, though, was that the Celestiq was a concept at the time, and it didn’t offer a good look at what a full production version would look like. Cadillac revealed that it has now begun the road testing phase for the elegant four-door.    Intergalactic Camouflage Hides Key Celestiq Details Cadillac …

It has been a long and perhaps celestial journey to get to this point in the Cadillac Celestiq’s road to production. Initially teased as a car that would bring Cadillac back to prominence in the luxury car market, subsequent teasers since then have revealed that the Celestiq will not only be targeting established players in the ultra luxury market, but that it also intends to try and replicate the magic that once defined Cadillac in the 1920s and 1930s.

Prior to their surprise victory at the Chevrolet Sports Classic on historic Belle Isle, the odds were stacked against the No. 1 Cadillac V-Performance Academy DPi and drivers Sebastian Bourdais and Renger van der Zande. Their season was anything but perfect, with the duo falling victim to various mechanical problems and even a few bad turns in fortune. Going into today’s race, there were some skeptics wondering whether Belle Isle would be the latest speedbump for their troubled car.

When we last saw the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq in person, it was during a visit to GM Tech Center where we were allowed to spend some time with Cadillac engineers and designers learning more about the futuristic CUV.

However, a new report appears to put a final date on production with the first models expected to roll out later this month.   Tentative Production Date Sign Of Cadillac’s Scheduling Push Cadillac …

2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing gains carbon fiber seat backs, promises other innovations

Cadillac has been carefully teasing the world with various aspects of the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing while the company is putting the final touches on the potent performance sedan. The company is at it again, and has used this latest teaser to confirm that the Blackwing will feature carbon fiber front seat backs.   While we have seen carbon fiber materials on other performance sedans, it’s not very often that we see it on a domestic offering.

Cadillac Of Fragrances? New Patent Filings Suggest That Perfumes and Other Luxury Products Are In GM’s Crosshairs

Have you woken up one day, and wondered what a Cadillac would smell like? Or whether the CT4 moniker could also make a good name for a brand of upscale cologne?

2021 Cadillac Escalade To feature Super Cruise, $2500 Option Expands Availability Of Revolutionary Technology

Cadillac’s innovative Super Cruise technology has had a very rocky launch since it was first formally unveiled in the CT6 sedan a few years ago. Back then, Cadillac promised to roll out the technology across the bulk of its lineup, but those plans largely never materialized, and the system remained a CT6 exclusive. But that’s all changing now, with the 2021 Escalade being the next recipient of the technology according to a report from the Cadillac Society forum. According to the site’s report, Cadillac plans to make Super Cruise optional on all but the base model Escalade for the 2021 …

Cadillac Releases Lone Image Of Bigger Escalade ESV Model, Bigger and More Spacious Than Ever

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade has managed to turn its fair share of heads since it made its debut in Los Angeles earlier this year. Boasting impressive amounts of style, luxury, and capability this Slade has it all covered. However, the bigger ESV variant has remained camera shy, with the only indicator of its existence being when it was unceremoniously revealed via the brand’s online configurator. Cadillac has remedied this, by unveiling one lone image of the upcoming ESV variant in an announcement earlier today.   The exterior styling is a virtual mirror image of the standard Escalade, with all the …

Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing Announced, Manual Transmission To Be Offered [Video]

When Cadillac first unveiled the CT4-V and CT5-V at the end of May last year, it felt as if it something was missing. While the prospect of having two performance sedans to salivate over certainly pleased many enthusiasts, some were left wanting more power. Especially considering that the V-Series models that came before them packed much more muscle under the hood. Cadillac even paraded the Blackwings out on the track during the 2019 Detroit Grand Prix to give the public a fleeting glimpse at the duo. Fast forward to 2020, and Cadillac has officially confirmed that both the CT4 and …

Cadillac Celestiq To Appear As Brand’s New EV Flagship Sedan

Cadillac and GM as a broader whole shocked the world yesterday by opening the door on its electrified future, while the company stopped short of formally allowing its vehicles of the future to be photographed, one vehicle in particular stood out to us the most, the Cadillac Celstiq.

Cadillac CT5 To Be Sedan Only Affair, No Coupes Or Wagon In The Works

Even though the 2020 Cadillac CT5 is aimed at being a strong entry for buyers that typically shop in what the brand calls the “Lux 3” segment (we are still scratching our heads on that statement) which includes rivals such as the BMW 3-Series and the Mercedes C-Class, the car’s dimensions also cause it to fall into the same size category as the larger BMW 5-Series and the Audi A6. This situation reminds us of the second generation CTS sedan, which originally straddled the line between these two sedan classes, but whereas that model had enough flexibility to spawn a …

Cadillac Unveils CT5 Sedan, Replaces CTS and ATS In Sedan Lineup

Ahead of its debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show, Cadillac has formally unveiled the 2020 CT5 sedan online, with the new model showing how commited Cadillac really is to simplifying its sedan lineup in the wake of increasing CUV demand. This step towards simplifying the lineup means that the CT5 will resurrect its role as a tweener offering for buyers, with the car replacing both the 3-Series sized ATS sedan, as well as the bigger CTS, which also initally performed this same duty when the second generation version first debuted back in 2008. We are still scratching our …

Cadillac Unveils Three Row 2020 XT6 CUV Ahead of NAIAS

With the ferocity unseen by the brand in recent years, the once car focused Cadillac has rapidly revamped and expanded its lineup of utility offerings. Once territory that was occupied most successfully by the Cadillac Escalade (review pending,) the luxury brand has added the XT4 and the XT5 in its arsenal to try and allow it to expand its reach in the hotly contested CUV segment. But a void always existed between the XT5 and the Escalade, and Cadillac has addressed this by unveiling its newest XT badged offering, the 2020 Cadillac XT6.
