GM investing $300 million to build a new electric Chevy in the US

GM announced Friday it will invest $300 million into a Michigan factory to produce a new Chevrolet electric vehicle, reversing a decision to build the EV outside of the United States. The announcement comes on the heels of recent job cuts and plant closures by GM, moves that have complicated bargaining with union workers over a new four-year contract and has sparked intense criticism from President Donald Trump over a decision to end production at a factory in Lordstown, Ohio. The automaker’s...

Second Electric Chevrolet Coming to Michigan

That didn’t take long, did it? In a Friday morning announcement, General Motors said it plans to bring a second electric product to the Orion Assembly plant in suburban Detroit, home to the Chevrolet Bolt. Forget Buick and Cadillac, too. This Bolt-based product is destined to carry the bowtie badge. Details of the upcoming model […] The post Second Electric Chevrolet Coming to Michigan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Cadillac’s Second Sedan Shoe Drops This Year, and It Has a Name

Night Vision For The Masses: NightRide Helps Keep Drivers Safe

Sometimes even with the best of headlights, it’s impossible to see everything at night.  A new product called NightRide uses advanced infrared technology to help drivers see after dark.   The NightRide unit comes with two different displays, including a “fighter pilot” style heads-up display.  There’s no doubt about it. Driving at night is risky business. Throw in visually-impaired drivers, fatigue from the long work day, and rush hour traffic and the odds are further against you. In fact, the...

Cadillac Doesn’t Want to Share Its Blackwing V8

With the 2019 Cadillac CT6-V drawing its power from General Motors’ new 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8, it was only a matter of time before people started wondering where else the “Blackwing” motor might crop up. Thus far, the engine has only appeared in the CT6 sedan — producing an impressive 550 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. Future models are […] The post appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Listen Closely: Cadillac Reveals New 2020 CT5 Sedan

If you’ve been on the internet lately in any capacity whatsoever, you’ll recognize the term ASMR. Deployed in everything from driving videos to mildly NSFW speaking sessions, the use of autonomous sensory meridian response is designed to trigger a physical response in viewers via sound.

Rare Rides: The Saab 9-4x – One Last Gasp From 2011

Would you like a luxury CUV that’s based on a Cadillac, but contains many unique and unobtainium parts? So many rare parts, in fact, that an owner might be scared to put it on the road? Well then, here’s a Saab for you — it’s a 9-4X, from 2011. In 2011, the Saab brand was […] The post Rare Rides: The Saab 9-4x – One Last Gasp From 2011 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

QOTD: The End of Braggadocious Cars?

Cadillac’s decision to take the practice of boasting through badging into the future generated a fair bit of buzz yesterday, and no shortage of snark, either. Rather than go the time-honored displacement route, the brand choose to slap its upcoming models with a metric, rounded-up torque figure, thus allowing ICE-less electrics to get in on […] The post QOTD: The End of Braggadocious Cars? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Cadillac: Lovers of Metric and Rounding, Rejoice!

What fresh hell is this, you might mutter after hearing what Cadillac’s up to.

The badges are numbers, designed to give both the owner and passer-by […] The post Cadillac: Lovers of Metric and Rounding, Rejoice! appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Premium Price War: 2020 Cadillac XT6 Starts Above Rival Lincoln Aviator

Americans gain two new domestic midsizers for the 2020 model year, and both of the premium crossover rivals take a different approach in how they propel their human cargo.

Cadillac No Longer Daring Greatly

For a brand that probably once caught the eye of Woodrow Wilson, there’s a late adolescent feeling to Cadillac’s current existence that belies its century-long history.

With CT6-V Sold Out, Cadillac Poised to Drop a Second V8 Shoe

We’ve hinted at this before, but now there’s order guides and pricing to share.

Cadillac Boss Not Outwardly Terrified of Brand’s Transition

Were it not for his Canadian place of birth, Cadillac President Steve Carlisle might make an ideal centrist presidential candidate. On paper, anyway. Mild-mannered and cautiously optimistic, not prone to exaggerated doomsaying, Carlisle would either be triumphantly swept into power, or creamed like a bushel of Iowa corn.

With No New Vehicle to Show in Chicago, Cadillac Tweaks the XT5

The Cadillac XT5, which happens to be a perfect all-weather urban vehicle, is a major breadwinner for the upscale brand. By far the best-selling vehicle in the Caddy stable, the XT5 midsize crossover out-volumes the bigger and pricier Escalade by a factor of two to one. Unfortunately, it’s no longer the freshest face at the […] The post With No New Vehicle to Show in Chicago, Cadillac Tweaks the XT5 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota’s new car subscription company Kinto is gamifying driving behavior

Cadillac XT5 Driver Pulls Off a Better Ad Than Cadillac’s Marketing Agency Ever Dreamed Up

Maybe that headline’s too harsh, but have you seen a recent Cadillac commercial? If nothing comes to mind, that merely illustrates the brand’s problem. The bulk of its marketing efforts are, in this writer’s opinion, boring, forgettable, and uninspired. Just showing that a crossover can drive sedately down a dry, urban street isn’t enough to get […] The post Cadillac XT5 Driver Pulls Off a Better Ad Than Cadillac’s Marketing Agency Ever Dreamed Up appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Cadillac XT6: Enter The Goldilocks Zone

The 2020 Cadillac XT6 is a three-row crossover with a laundry list of safety features. Cadillac says “thoughtful technology integration” is central to the 2020 XT6. It’s larger than the XT4 and XT5, but still smaller than a new Escalade.   The 2020 Cadillac XT6 crossover/SUV had its global debut at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. And all I can say is you better get used to seeing a lot of these around. Not that Caddy was or ever will be a volume manufacturer, just that these SUV/crossover thing...

‘This Is Pretty Much It’: New GM President Acknowledges Cadillac’s Last Chance For Glory

Cadillac is at a crossroads. While the brand has enjoyed growth in Asia, domestic volume never fully recovered from the Great Recession. It’s come back a bit, with sales dipping and rising between years, but hasn’t managed to keep pace with the overall market.

Book ’em Again, Danno: Cadillac’s Revised Subscription Service Coming Later This Year

General Motors is readying another automotive subscription service after canceling “Book by Cadillac,” which was deemed too costly to keep operational, several months ago.

Cadillac’s CT6 Isn’t As Dead As You Thought

A Crossover With No Name Is Cadillac’s Hedge Against an Oilless Future

Everyone else is doing it. And, if lawmakers on this side of the Atlantic start going the way of their European counterparts, traditional American luxury will need a shot of cleanliness.
