While Cadillac has reinvented the Escalade, the preferred mount of rock stars, pro athletes and Hollywood’s red carpet elite, Hennessey Performance (HPE) has put in overtime developing a supercharger upgrade for its new 6.2-liter direct-injected V8 engine. It’s all the better for sneaking up on the unsuspecting Mercedes GL63 AMG or Range Rover Sport…that is, until the roar of the exhaust and subtle Hennessey branding give you away.

2015 Cadillac Escalade features brand new design, which highlights vehicle’s emblematic quality and elegance. The styling cues combine sculpted surfaces with high technology. Although the appearance of Escalade is new, its iconic character has been preserved through an evolution of design dating to the first generation vehicle, introduced in 1999.
With a strong sense of presence and proportion, the next-generation Escalade modernizes many Cadillac elements such as shield-shaped grille, the Galvano bright trim, and the LED vertical light signatures.
2014 Cadillac XTS and CTS as well as 2014 Buick Regal and 2014 Chevrolet Impala have all earned five stars given by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) via their rating program on front crash prevention. These General Motor vehicles are all considered industry leaders when purchased with GM’s available Front Automatic Braking system. This important safety technology is not only available on GM’s luxury Cadillac products, but also on the more mainstream Chevrolet and Buick vehicles.
The IIHS previously recognized GM for front end safety, bestowing its highest safety rating – the 2014 Top Safety Pick +, on the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, and Chevrolet Malibu. The main contributor for this high score was the available forward collision alert. The Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain are the only midsize SUVs out of the nine evaluated to earn “Good” ratings in the IIHS’s small overlap front crash test.
2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe includes number of changes for the new model year, which deliver not only exquisite styling but also enhance its performance. The luxury ATS Coupe is ready to go on sale by the end of this summer. All of the surface development unique to the vehicle was done with aerodynamics in mind. Cadillac was also able to achieve lift and downforce requirements to insure, that at top speed the car will retain its handling without an added rear spoiler.
In addition, the wider track of the ATS Coupe also enhances the steering precision and direct response. On the other hand the lower roof contributes towards a lower center of gravity height. This also reduces roll and improves steering response.
2015 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Special Edition is the last CTS-V Coupe before the next-generation models arrive next year. The production of the limited special-edition model will consist of 500 limited-edition cars available during the second half of 2014. 2015 CTS-V Coupe marks the last chapter of the current model before the next generation of the V-Series debuts next year.
The new vehicle shares the high-performance technology of its predecessors. It includes Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and the 556-horsepower (415kW) supercharged V-8 engine. CTS-V Coupe is the most dramatic model in the V-Series range of high-performance luxury models. It blends the personal 2+2 layout with a drivetrain vetted on Germany’s famed Nürburgring track.
2015 Cadillac ATS Crimson Sport Edition comes to expand Cadillac’s range of ATS trim levels and also to offer enhanced dynamic performance and design credentials. What characterizes this special edition vehicle is not only the trade-mark it stands behind, but also its unique Crimson Red Metallic exterior paint scheme.
Furthermore, special about this car are also the standard 18-inch Manoogian Dark Silver Premium Painted wheels, the added ground effects package that comprises of color-matched front splitter, rocker moldings and rear diffuser, as well as the aero decklid spoiler. Cadillac offers two engine options for the ATS Crimson Sport Edition.
The electrified and luxury Cadillac ELR electrified luxury coupe which was officially unveiled to the general public in the Summer months of last year and since then it has made a great furor among the electric vehicle fans, first of all because of its eco-friendliness, and secondly because it is a true muscle car.
Now, Cadillac has prepared for the early buyers of the vehicle a complementary 240-volt home charging station. If they purchase the car they will also get professional installation of the fastest home-charging unit. In fact, the exclusive ELR is a combination of new technology and extreme design, and also offers fun-to-drive experience.
2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe is designed to be lighter and more agile. It will be offered in the choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a 3.6L six-cylinder one.
ATS Coupe has a new lightweight and strong structure and delivers exhilarating performance and efficiency, as well as segment-leading power-to-weight ratio. The 2.0L Turbo engine has been enhanced and generates nearly 14 percent more torque, taking it to 295 lb-ft (400 Nm).
The new 2012 Camaro might get a few extra horses under the bonnet if what Camaro5 reports is true. The new horsepower will find its way into the V6 powerplant for the sports coupe version. The new engine, badged “LFX”, looks like a significant improvement over the already powerful LLT V6 found in LS and LT Camaros.
The mill is described as “LFX 3.6L SIDI, DOHC, VVT, E85 MAX, Alum GM”, so it should still displace only 3.6-liters, just like the current V6 Camaro. It’s not yet clear if this is the standard model or some kind of high-performance race car for the road, but we like the figures either way. It even comes packed with advanced features, like Spark-Ignition Direct-Injection, Dual Overhead Cams, Variable Valve Timing, and E85 capability. Read more!
