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? If that fits you, then stay tuned, because General Motors is very close to securing several new patents that could expand the Cadillac name into relatively uncharted territory.   While the idea of luxury car makers expanding there operations to non-car related sectors of the luxury market is nothing new (we are looking at you Rolls Royce) seeing Cadillac try and do the same thing is certainly an unusual …

2021 Lexus IS Teases New Taillight Design, Will Make Global Debut June 9th

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 …

Unearthed Mazda Patent Points To Possible Return Of Rotary Engine, Also Highlights Novel Hybrid System

Mazda has long been a persistent believer in the potential of the rotary engine. The rotary (also known as the Wankel engine) has been around for awhile, but following a brief period in the 1970s where the novel engine was viewed as a potential solution to improving fuel economy, the engine has largely languished in the background. The last production model to utilize one was (unsurprisingly) the long axed Mazda RX-8 sports car. But Mazda has not given up on the idea of using it, and a recently unearthed patent appears to suggest that Mazda is closer to reviving 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 …

Toyota Brings More Refinement, Technology To the 2020 Highlander CUV

Remember when the Toyota Highlander was stylish and refined? If you said no to either of these, it’s completely understandable considering how past iterations of the venerable Highlander embraced the functionality and purposeful lines that defined it as a perennial favorite among family buyers, but at the cost of losing ground to more design centric family haulers. Toyota is out to completely change the way people perceive the big Highlander, and has given it a very massive makeover for the 2020 model year. The exterior of the 2020 Highlander will certainly draw plenty of stares thanks to its rebooted styling …

Morgan Shelves V8 Engine, Teases The Future In New Teaser Video [Video]

It is not too often that we hear from our friends at Morgan. The bespoke British sports car maker has won over our hearts with their unique and iconic interpretation of what a proper British sports car should be. However, even Morgan has to occasionally adapt to the ever changing marketplace, and it has done so by ditching the V8 engine for good, and preparing a bold surprise for a future generation of Morgan enthusiasts (this eager author included.) While the outgoing Plus 8 and Aero 8 models are the only two V8 Morgan models in the stable for right …
