Cadillac Cars – Top Three Models
If you’re in the market for a new car, consider a Cadillac. There are several different models to choose from, including the CT6, XT5, and XT5-V. Listed below are the top three Cadillac models:
The XT4 features an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Its touchscreen interface is user-friendly, and the Cadillac CUE software is easy to understand. Besides the standard audio system, the XT4 comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. Higher trims are available with navigation and a Bose audio system. The XT4’s available technology package adds a head-up display, wireless smartphone charging pad, and a digital gauge cluster.
The 2020 Cadillac XT5 offers a long list of active safety features. These include forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and automatic headlights. This luxury crossover also features front and rear park assistance, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist. The Premium Luxury and Sport trims add features such as adaptive cruise control, lane-change alert, and rear cross-traffic alert.
The next generation of Cadillac’s flagship sedan will probably not bear the same name, but it will be just as luxurious. The company announced the CT6 name in November 2012, during a rebranding of its entire lineup. Many enthusiasts expected the CT6 to be called LTS or another name more appropriate for its high-performance version. The new name is more likely to be more apt for its upcoming European debut. The next-generation CT6 will be sold in all current Cadillac business markets, including China, South Korea, Russia, and Europe.
The Cadillac XT5-V and XT6 are luxury crossover SUVs that feature advanced infotainment systems, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Cadillac infotainment system has a rotary controller for easier access to information, and the XT5 offers a wireless inductive phone-charging pad. Both models have free scheduled maintenance and three-year/36,000-mile warranties.
The new Cadillac CT4 went on sale in the second quarter of 2020. There are three trim levels available, including base “Luxury” and Premium Luxury. The base engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that generates 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. A few upgrades are available, too, including all-wheel drive and heated front seats. Compared to its predecessor, the CT4 is a bit heavier and has a higher price tag, but it is an impressive SUV.
The Cadillac CT5-V represents the top-tier of the V-series. The Blackwing CT5-V, the immediate successor to the CT5-V, is the next step up. This new V-Series has been reorganized into three tiers, with the base model representing the basic model, the mid-performance variant the next rung up, and the hyper-performance variant. Here’s a closer look at each tier.
Despite a premium price, the Cadillac XT6 isn’t a perfect vehicle. The interior cabin is nice but lacks sophistication compared to its competitors. The base turbo-4 engine is also underpowered for an SUV, and it tends to run out of breath when you try to accelerate hard. A V6 engine is the best choice for the XT6, as it produces more power and torque, and is better suited to the XT6’s size and weight. You will get better acceleration and highway passing capabilities, as well as an AutoCheck vehicle history report.
The new Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing is a high-performance luxury sedan. Compared to the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C 63, it has a more sporty look and a slightly more powerful engine. Although the Blackwing does not replace the high-performance V-Series models, it is a worthy successor to the aging and now obsolete ATS. If you’re looking for a car that offers the same level of performance as the CTS-V, it may be the best choice for you.
