A Florida-based coachbuilder that specializes in turning hard-top cars into convertibles got its hands on a 464-horsepower Cadillac ATS-V Coupe, and morphed it into something amazing—a convertible. Here’s how the company did it, from reinforcing the unibody to custom-forming the top to yield the perfect shape.
A design patent granted on July 3 to GM Global Technology Operations for a “VEHICLE BODY EXTERIOR” shows images of an athletic, sleek-looking coupe that many believe will be the all-new Cadillac CT5 Coupe. While we’re not certain of that, it is an interesting design that will give Cadillac a type of sporty car it’s…
The first Cadillac Escalade came out in 1999, and it was a bland, pointless Lincoln Navigator competitor that was basically indistinguishable from a GMC Yukon Denali. But the Escalade’s first revision, with its chunky fender flares and face like a knight’s helmet, remains a glorious moment for luxury SUVs.
So often we tie our cars to the great events in our lives. This is my story.
The one million dollars that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo granted to Cadillac in order to renovate its SoHo headquarters didn’t sit well with everyone. GOP gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro criticized the governor today, calling the grant “preposterous.”
Dearest One True Space Boy Elon Musk: I have located a suitable vehicle to act as your next test payload for when you want to shoot another car into space. It is a Cadillac SRX, but I think everyone will agree that it needs to be fired directly into the sun after a two-and-a-half-foot-long snake crawled out of one of…
General Motors has treaded carefully with the rollout of its semi-autonomous system called Super Cruise.

The Cadillac ATS had a lot of potential. It was a was an engaging small sport sedan that could give the Germans a run for their money in some areas, but for various and legitimate reasons, it unfortunately never found enough customers. Of course, the best version was the insane twin-turbo ATS-V, and now is the time to…
The Cadillac ATS sedan is dying at the end of 2018, and that’s sad. So to commemorate the dear Cadillac sports sedan’s passing, some of us are going to write about our experiences with Cadillac’s attempt to fight BMW’s 3 Series.
It is with some degree of sadness that I must announce to you that the Cadillac ATS sedan—scrappy would-be BMW 3 Series killer, occasional poster child for Cadillac’s troubles, handling delight and proof that rear-drive four-doors still matter—is no more. Production will cease at the end of the 2018 model year run.
Okay, okay, so some people might have died while utilizing Tesla’s semi-autonomous Autopilot system. It’s still the best one there is. Or it isn’t, because Cadillac’s Super Cruise is also a contender, and one Ryan Felton (wrongly) believes it’s better than Autopilot, plus it hasn’t killed anybody.
I’m in moving this week, which means I must physically wrestle all the junk that I have no idea why I kept. I don’t need more stuff. I need to rid myself of stuff. But I will make an exception if you buy me this championship-winning Cadillac DPi-V.R for my birthday. I don’t have one of those, and it’s for sale!
If you thought your Ford Mustang was going to turn heads at the car show, I’m sorry. You brought the wrong car. Don’t even try to to a burnout or you’ll get completely dwarfed by the cloud of tire smoke coming from your great aunt’s Cadillac Fleetwood.
There’s not much else to do with an old, tired car besides build a ramp up to heaven and send it. That’s what these enterprising gentlemen did with a 1980s Sedan de Ville that really, really doesn’t sound good anymore, and surprise: that big old smoking V8 just barely gets the job done anymore.
Flashy commercials, trendy hashtags and big events in the world of fashion and the arts are just a few of the ways that Cadillac attempted to woo new buyers in the nearly five years that former U.S. Audi boss Johan de Nysschen ran the shop. Yet while these efforts look good in the glossy pages of a men’s magazine or…

Modern Cadillacs have some of the most aggressive and awesome front ends on any car today. They are angular and sharp and mean and wonderful. And then you get to the back of the car and it’s like all the designers just... quit work a little early.
