While the 1936 Lancia Astura Pinin Farina Cabriolet may have won the “official” title of Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance best in show, whatever that really means, it did not win our hearts. The one true winner should have been this, a 1931 Cadillac 452A Fleetwood Imperial Limousine. Or, as we knew it, the V16 with…
Cadillac used the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as a chance to get some attention for their latest concept car, in much the same way I used fake choking at friends’ Bar Mitzvah’s to get attention for myself. Unlike a faked choking, the Cadillac Escala is actually quite lovely, and represents Caddy’s new design…
Finally, yesterday evening, Cadillac revealed a fresh new look at what a potential V8-powered flagship sedan could look like. Is Cadillac finally back?
Do you like the Audi A7? Do you like Cadillac’s current design language? If you answered ‘yes’ to both, or maybe even just one, you’re probably going to love the Cadillac Escala concept.
Cadillac is also bringing some real fancy stuff to Pebble Beach this year, but all they’ve thrown us in the meantime is a short preview of a high-tech interior and a promise that it will see duty on future cars. What are they up to?
CATERA! When was the last time you saw one of these on the road?
Cadillac’s doing a black trim package for CTS and ATS now. Oh yeah baby, that’s a grille I’d like to roast some bratwurst on.
We here at Jalopnik frequently post wild videos captured from dash cams or surveillance cameras. It’s usually silly stuff like cows falling out of trucks, or fights between crazy Russians. Well, looks like Cadillac wants to give us more crazed internet fodder, as they’ve thrown a surround-vision video recording system…
You may have heard that Cadillac is having a difficult time convincing customers to buy one of their cars that is not an Escalade. That sucks for them, but it could be good for you if you would like a nice American luxury sedan for up to $17,000 off.
We’ll have more on Indy 500 pace cars later today, but here’s a 1973 Cadillac that I’d happily daily-drive.
“Our issue is not the quality of the product,” Cadillac’s brand director Melody Lee told Bloomberg. “Our challenge is relevance.”
When I hear “Cadillac,” I think “fintails,” or “BMW,” or maybe even “CVS Pharmacy.” I don’t think “compact hatchback.” But if a report that the American luxury brand is planning such a thing is true, perhaps I should. UPDATE
The lovely Cadillac ATS-V.R of Johnny O’Connell had a bit of a boost problem at Long Beach that put them out of Pirelli World Challenge’s allowed specification. A 10-second penalty was assessed after the race, reports Racer. This gave K-Pax McLaren 650S GT3 driver Alvaro Parente his first win in the series.
We have long been waiting for a $100,000-and-up Cadillac super luxury car to take on the Mercedes S Class and the like. One report suggests that won’t happen. Another believes we should expect even more.
Cadillac, the company that told us they were going to go back to being the standard of the world, has given up on the idea of a top-of-the-line flagship car, according to a news report. Blame the SUVs.
